WOODSTOCK, Ill., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on its reputation for creating innovative, practical and affordable Global Positioning System (GPS tracking) devices, industry leader LandAirSea Systems announces the launch of a new product, the GPS TracKing, which redefines power and efficiency in the passive GPS tracking market.
The GPS TracKing is a passive vehicle tracking device with no monthly fees. Powered by two (2) AA batteries, the GPS TracKing records up to 80 hours of movement on a single battery cycle. It was designed to share many of the features of LandAirSea's most widely-used product, the GPS Tracking Key(R), including compact size, portability and ease of installation; yet with added enhancements, such as longer battery life, faster GPS signal acquisition, a secondary power source, on/off switch and an easily-accessible battery compartment.
LandAirSea Systems officially debuted the GPS TracKing in April at the International Security Conference (ISC) West in Las Vegas, NV. Manufacturers and distributors attend the annual conference to show the latest advancements in security and safety-related technology. This year's conference took place at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
KJB Security Products will be the exclusive North American wholesale distributor of the GPS TracKing. The new GPS tracking device is widely available through the KJB distributor network including www.spychest.com.
"Through exclusive agreement with KJB Security, we are pleased to introduce the new GPS TracKing(R), which is sure to build on the success of our popular GPS Tracking Key," said Steven Moehling, Vice President of Sales for LandAirSea. "This device was two years in the making and represents a new generation in our family of passive GPS tracking devices."
The GPS TracKing joins the GPS Tracking Key, and the 3100 series of passive vehicle tracking devices. LandAirSea also manufactures and markets the 8100, an active GPS tracking system. Its data can be accessed from a remote location. All LandAirSea products - whether under warranty or out of warranty - are backed by LandAirSea's free, domestic-based technical support team.
How the GPS TracKing Works
The new GPS TracKing is a passive GPS receiver that fits in the palm of a hand and is only slightly larger than the size of two AA batteries, placed side-by-side. Using GPS satellite technology, the device records the location, direction and speed of a vehicle, and also the location and duration of stops, every second, within 2.5 meters of accuracy.
The GPS TracKing is equipped with a high-strength magnet for trouble-free installation. Its water-resistant design allows for placement inside or outside a vehicle. An optional accessory cable allows an alternative power option to retain battery life: connection to the vehicle's cigarette lighter adapter. The GPS TracKing can also be hardwired to the vehicle's 12V power supply.
The device has a built-in motion sensor that puts it into a "sleep" mode after approximately 2 1/2 minutes of inactivity. The GPS TracKing also can be manually switched on and off.
Up to 100 hours of motion are recorded in the GPS TracKing’s memory. To download, the user connects the vehicle tracking device to his personal computer via USB port and, with the aid of included software, the vehicle's activities can be seen on an animated street map, on a satellite image via Google Earth, or in a daily text report.
