Word from our Sponsor: GPS Tracking




We interrupt our regular programming here to make way for an advertiser from ReviewMe. It’s all about this new pocket-sized GPS Tracking Key from LandAirSea Systems, Inc.

When we were traveling in Germany a few weeks back, I was pretty amazed that almost all cars there have GPS systems installed. It was way cool, IMO. I wished we have those kind of tracking systems here locally. I get lost all the time. Just the other day, it took us more than 8 hours to get to Baguio because I didn’t know which way we’re going. I only realized we were going the wrong way when the morning sun was shining on my left instead of right while thinking we’re heading up north (okay, we went in circles around Concepcion).

Anyway, this tracking key doesn’t actually solve my problem above. The device is for another purpose altogether which is basically to track vehicles. It’s a small pocket-size device which has a strong magnet you can stick on any metal part of a car (or anything you basically want to track). In short, this one is for doing surveillance.

GPS Tracking Key

Yeah, you’d feel like James Bond or maybe Nancy Drew but this rig can have a lot of practical uses. Tracking the cars of your kids, husband or boyfriend perhaps? *heh* Or if you own a business, you can track delivery vans to see if they’re plying the normal routes or going on detours. Same can be done with public taxis or buses. The device gets its signal from the twenty-four Department of Defense GPS satellites orbiting the earth.

Just stick the small device somewhere inside the car where it’s not visible. Once you get it back, plug it in your computer and use Google Earth to see which location it’s been — plug and play, that easy. The GPS tracking system is accurate up to about 2.5 meters. It’s powered by 2 AAA batteries and is water-resistant.

The device costs about $229 after rebate. Cheaper than getting a personal investigator. :)

  1. Nice gadget Abe!

    Do they have local support for that device? Do they have another module capable of giving real time tracking and at the same time have a history of the travel routes taken?

    Do they have their own maps for PH. Google Earth’s map for PH are not yet that detailed unlike Google Earth’s map for the US.

    Thanks!

    Fuel costs account for 28-30% of most fleet’s budgets. With increasing fuel costs, reducing fuel consumption is now one of the most important issues facing fleet managers. Prolonged idling and excessive speeding make driver behavior the number one factor in fuel consumption. Use our GPSTracker to monitor, document and eliminate this type of behavior.

    By tracking and controlling driver speeding behavior, a company can reduce accidents by a significant percentage. An accident reduction of 5% for a 50-vehicle fleet amounts to nearly 3 fewer accidents each year.

    60 minutes of idling is equivalent to between 80 and 120 minutes of driving time.The resulting loss of fuel economy from excessive idling can add up to 800 gallons of fuel annually for the average truck. (Argonne National Laboratories)

    Having problem with your GPS Tracking System? It could be your using GPRS which requires data connection to transmit latitude & longitude to the internet. This is potentially a problem since internet is always intermittent. Here at livehelp4us.com we developed a gps tracking platform that use SMS instead of GPRS connection and it is more stable. No matter what kind of GPS device you’re using it will always be a problem if you use GPRS connection.
