Since the Global Positioning System (GPS) serves as a receiver and not a transmitter, passive GPS trackers lack a transmission device such as a cellular module that sends the GPS data from the tracker. Therefore, passive GPS trackingdevices, also known as data loggers, primarily function as recording devices.
GPS data loggers typically have an internal flash memory, a memory card slot or a USB port that stores the GPS data gathered from the vehicle or asset to which they are attached. The GPS data can then be downloaded and viewed on a computer.The GPS data recorded includes speed, location and active driving time.
With LandAirSea's passive GPS tracking systems, the stored GPS data can then be downloaded onto a computer or laptop via a USB port. Users can then view an animated version of the route of travel with Google Earth.
These passive GPS tracking devices can be used by sports enthusiasts while jogging or backpacking to calculate the length and duration of a trip. They can also be used by parentsfor tracking their teenage drivers and by private investigators for vehicle surveillance. Passive GPS tracking devices give users the freedom of not having to physically track and monitor the target asset or vehicle.
The passive GPS Tracking devices offered by LandAirSea include the GPS Tracking Key® and the GPS Tracking Key Pro®. These GPS data loggers offer portability, convenience, accuracy, reliability and ease-of-use for various applications, such as fleet management, law enforcement and personal vehicle tracking.
Just like the original GPS Tracking Key®, the GPS Tracking Key Pro is a compact and portable GPS tracking unit captures the complete movement history ofa vehicle. The device can operate up to 80 hours on a battery cycle, depending on daily drive time and battery type. It can also be connected, via hardwire, tothe vehicle's main power supply for continuous power, with no monthly fees.
Records every second, and accurate to within 2.5 meters of the device. The GPS tracking data is recorded and stored onto the GPS Tracking Key Pro's flash memory. Users can retrieve the device and download the data via USB port to personal computer using the LandAirSea Past-Track software package, which comes with the GPS Tracking Key Pro device (PC compatible only - not compatible with Macs).
The GPS Tracking Key Pro also comes equipped with a motion detector, which automatically places the device into sleep mode after two minutes of non-movement to conserve battery life. It can also receive continuous, uninterrupted power by connecting the device to the vehicle's cigarette lighter or hardwired directly to the vehicle's power supply (optional accessories).
LandAirSea also offers free 24-Hour Technical Support to help troubleshoot and answer any questions you may have regarding your GPS Tracking Key Pro or any oneof our tracking devices.
