GPS Tracking Devices.

Around the world, news and reports about stolen cars and theft of freight from the trailers and maritime shipments are rising. The escalating number of stolen cars in some countries paved the way for governments to pass laws to fight this crime and to easily recover stolen vehicles.

With the advent of modern technology, there are now ways to aid in tracing the location of stolen cars. One is the use of GPS or Global Positioning System to determine the precise location of a vehicle, person or any assets. GPS is a space-based global navigation satellite system that provides the accurate location and time information on anything connected to a GPS tracking device as long as there is line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. It is freely accessible to anyone with a GPS server.

No wonder why GPS tracking devices are becoming more popular these days. These devices use GPS to determine the location of the asset where the device is attached and record the position at regular intervals. The power of this device makes it a valuable investigative tool for business and personal use. Because of its accuracy and reliability, it has been incorporated into some law enforcement agencies which usually required significant manpower and resources to monitor and locate vehicles.

One of the leading suppliers of state and municipal law enforcement agencies for their GPS Tracking devices is LandAirSea. It has pioneered the development of GPS-based surveillance technology since 1994. Its GPS tracking systems boast an accuracy of 2.5 meters horizontally and tracks the speed and duration of time in which a subject remains stationary. All of their GPS tracking units undergo extensive pre-development research and testing to ensure that customers are receiving products guaranteed to deliver real, measurable results.

There are several GPS Tracking systems to choose from but what caught my fancy was the GPS Tracking Key Pro by LandAirSea. It is a compact and very portable tracking unit that is slightly larger than two AA batteries that provides power to it. It can operate up to 80 hours on battery power which can be connected to a car’s main power supply.

I just hope that more and more law enforcement agencies and individuals from different countries will realize the value of this technology in locating and monitoring assets.
