Device Certifications

Products designed by the Cartrack engineering team are tested and certified for sale in 24 countries.

Certifications and approvals are completed for the country in which we sell the products.

Testing and approvals ensures that the device cannot affect the vehicle or users or be affected by third-party equipment.

All the test reports completed by the various test houses around the world are available on http://wiki.cartrack.com

Types of testing:
• Electrical testing
• Radio Frequency (RF) testing
• GSM 2G/3G/4G antenna performance testing
