The Basics of tracking:
The two most common forms of GPS tracking are
'active' and 'passive'. Passive devices
store GPS location, speeds, and headings directly
on the device itself. Once removed from the
asset being tracked the data is downloaded from
the unit via a computer for evaluation.
Simply put, the passive unit tells you exactly
where it has been in the world.
Active devices collect the same information, but
are much more advanced, transmitting live data
real-time using cellular or satellite networks to
a computer server. The server can then be
accessed by the user to determine the unit's exact
location, as well as other attributes. These
active units will tell you exactly where they
from a remote location such as a computer or
What can I track?
The most common question asked of us holds the
simplest answer: anything, anywhere,
anytime! If it can physically hold
a device, we have a unit to suit your needs.
Devices can be hard wired into an already existing
power source for vehicle applications or supplied
with rechargeable battery packs for personal
protection and cargo use. Specific uses have
few limits as products have become smaller and
more advanced. The most common applcations
include vehicles, stolen vehicle recovery, kids
and loved ones, patients, boats, trailers,
surveillance, high risk offenders, pets, trailers,
cargo and even mail. Commercial fleet uses
include rental companies, trucking companies, cab
companies, hospitality and insurance.
Why do I need your service?
Primarily to help find what is lost or stolen with
ease and accuracy and to provide the peace of mind
that comes with having the knowledge of where
something is or was at all times.
Commercial uses are a wise investment for cutting
costs, planning routes, securing goods and keeping
What do I do if something is stolen or
lost that is equipped with ACTIVE TRACKING?
If the item was
stolen call police immediately
and inform them the asset was equipped with a GPS
tracking unit. You can then log into your
account and trace the unit's exact location using
our website and inform them of its current
location by street address, mapping views or
coordinates. You can also find out if the
unit is in motion and it's direction, speed, and
Is it complicated?
No. The technology has evolved to the point
that active tracking units are small, easy to
install and have software based on the most
popular current online mapping. All that is
required is a username and password associated
with your tracking account. Passive units
are even easier as they are self-contained and
require no account.
