How to Use a GPS Data Logger
A GPS Data Logger, or Tracker, is an amazing device that can be used in a variety of ways. The simplest form of GPS tracker is built into your smart phone and you use it every time you pull up Google Maps to figure out where you are and where you’re going.
But what if you’ve got a fleet of cars (like a taxi or limousine company) that you need to track? Or perhaps you’ve got a security company and you want to know where all your cars and guards are. Or you’re a worried parent whose children just got their drivers licenses.
Setting up an auto GPS tracker is fairly simple. You just need to place it in the vehicle that you want to track. The Spy Store offers magnetic cases that you can use to attach to the vehicle as well as tiny trackers that are easily hidden–some look like USB drives. As long as the tracker is somewhere inside the passenger area of the car, you’ll get a signal.
The only thing you have to worry about is the battery life. We also offer extended batteries and cases to make sure the device works even longer. They record up to 120 hours of data, and the battery will last as long as possible.
Next, you need to install the Trackstick Manager software, with is a Geo-photo tagging application that’s free of charge. Most of the GPS data loggers don’t come with any monthly fees and the software is free as long as we have it in stock. So you just need to download the reports from the tracker, check out where the tracker has gone, and you’re in business.
Yes, we know that it feels like you’re using spy equipment on your employees or, worse, your children, but there is a peace of mind that comes with making sure that you know exactly where your vehicles are.
