All about GPS Tracker devices

  • In this modern age, traditional locks and security measures are simply not enough to protect
    your motorcycle. And that is why it is good to have a GPS tracker. Because when all else fails,
    you still want to be able to get your motorcycle back. To understand why traditional security is
    not enough, we need to understand why it fails, how criminals attack your motorcycle’s security,
    and what to look for in a GPS tracker. Once we understand those elements, you will know why
    every motorcycle owner should use a GPS tracker.
    Lift Off
    In times of desperation, or when you find yourself unprepared, your motorcycle has to go
    without a lock. This may be a result of the lock not being in the gear bag, an unforeseen issue
    with the lock, nothing sturdy to chain the bike too, etc. Needless to say, there will be times
    where your motorcycle is receiving less than perfect protection. Without a solid anchor point,
    motorcycle criminals won’t have touch any part of your security. Even with disk brake locks,
    criminals can still get away with your ride.
    This is because, the motorcycle can be lifted into the bed of a truck, or the back of a van. This
    attack is usually done with a team, where the bike is lifted so that it rolls on the wheel without a
    lock on the disk brake onto a ramp. However, in some cases, the team will lift the motorcycle
    unto a dolly of some kind, or even just lift it straight into their vehicle. Only a GPS tracker is
    effective in these cases. The tracker will always be there. Once it is installed, it is protecting your
    motorcycle no matter the situation. With no way to forget this means of protection, your bike
    always has a way of being found.
    Locks Aren’t Enough
    A lock is not enough to protect your bike. As we learned above, a lock on your disk brake is not
    going to do much in the way of protecting your motorcycle, but every lock has weaknesses. Of
    course, all motorcycles should use high-quality locks and even chains, but this alone is not
    enough. Even the best locks and the strongest chains can be cut with an angle grinder. Most
    can be cut in under a minute. Though this type of attack may be noisy and attract attention, an
    experienced thief knows how fast they can get away.
    Once the locks, chains, etc. come off, your motorcycle has no security. That is unless you use a
    GPS tracker. No matter how much someone wants your motorcycle, once they steal it, you will
    have a way of getting it back. Where most security focuses on keeping you from losing what you
    have, a GPS does the work of getting it back. The security offers peace of mind, and the
    resources to ensure that a criminal never truly steals your ride.
    Simple Ignition Cylinders
  • On most vintage motorcycles, and even many of the contemporary models, there is an issue
    with the simplicity of the vehicle’s ignition cylinder. Without a transponder chip in the key, and a
    transceiver in the cylinder, a motorcycle is very easy to start. There are products like tryout keys
    which will turn in many ignitions as if they were the actual key. These “skeleton keys” are very
    easy to purchase, and allow a criminal to ride away on your motorcycle.
    Even if you were to get an auto locksmith to replace your ignition cylinder, there are still ways to
    circumvent the cylinder and hot wire the bike. The steering lock is simple enough to break on
    most motorcycles, and then the thief is free to take off. It would be a better to install a GPS
    tracker on the bike, so that no matter where the criminal ends up, the police can find the
    motorcycle.
    What You Need in a Motorcycle GPS Tracker
    Firstly, you need a product that is built with motorcycle GPS tracking in mind. This means the
    product should be waterproof so that weathering during use and unforeseen storage issues do
    not leave you with a malfunctioning or broken tracker. You are also looking for a GPS tracker
    with superior receiver sensitivity, as fast Time To First Fix (TTFF) is crucial for security.
    The TTFF is the measurement of how long it takes before the GPS receiver can locate a signal
    and navigation data from a satellite. The faster the TTFF, the quicker you will know the
    calculated “position solution” (aka Fix). Once your motorcycle GPS tracker finds the “Fix” it will
    need a way of being monitored. Monitoring is left up to the individual’s needs, based on their
    perceived security risks, but it is good to have the option between real-time and periodic
    monitoring.
    Conclusion
    Using GPS technology to protect your motorcycle is really the only way to get proper peace of
    mind. With third party devices, a criminal will not think to check for this security. That means all
    of their preparation still won’t allow them to get away. As it is so hard to properly safeguard a
    motorcycle reliably and in every situation, take the necessary precautions to assure that you can
    always know where your vehicle is

Some clever covert GPS tracking and a little public shaming is helping to reduce the big problem of bicycle theft in San Francisco. Plain clothed police officers are planting GPS equipped bicycles around the city, tracking bike thieves, and charging them.  A little public shame is part of the deal, with mugshots posted on Twitter under the hashtag #ThankYou4TakingOurBaitBike.  An estimated 4,000 bicycles have been stolen in San Francisco since 2012–triple the number of cell phones reported stolen for the same time period.

gps tracking overpass

Have you ever tried driving a 12-foot box truck under an 11-foot bridge?  If you have, then you know that it doesn’t work and that it can also create huge, expensive messes, not to mention injuries.  According the Boston Herald, officials are sending heads up notifications to GPS tracking companies such as Garmin and TomTom to update GPS tracking software to include warnings for low bridges and overpasses.

The effort is to prevent accidents among new Boston drivers, especially college students and their parents, who will likely be heavily relying on their GPS tracking systems to make it to campus neighborhoods.  As one might imagine, the problems created  include damage to bridges, traffic delays, and possible injuries.

 

GPStrackingteachers

Teachers in one Texas school district will soon be receiving GPS tracking necklaces in an initiative aimed at improving school safety, according Dallas Observer blog.  According to the report, Carroll ISD teachers will receive GPS tracking devices equipped with panic buttons allowing them to more quickly summon help in the event of an emergency.  The district ordered 100 of the GPS trackers which are programmed to alert help with the location and a photo of the wearer when the emergency feature is activated.

GPS tracking for business

In today’s very competitive marketplace, the ability to operate efficiently can make a significant difference in any business’s ability to be successful.  As one of the most effective business tools available, GPS tracking software provides business owners added efficiency in a number ways.

Their Time Equals Your Money

The more your business can achieve in fewer hours, the more profitable and competitive it will be.  With GPS tracking software, dispatchers can easily save time and dollars by having the ability to see where every vehicle in your fleet is at any time—speeding up response times, and optimizing travel routes. Especially for service providers, the ability to make more calls in less time can greatly improve the productivity level of every work day.

Reporting Made Easy

GPS tracking software offers automated reporting options to both speed the pace of business and help you analyze where your money is going.  These reporting options include mileage tracking, monitoring idle time, and route playback.

Asset Protection

As mentioned in our previous post on GPS tracking for loss prevention, GPS tracking devices can greatly improve the chances of recovering stolen property without damage.   The devices, used with GPS tracking software, allow business owners to see the location of their assets, and notify authorities.

 

As one of the most convenient options in GPS tracking today, TrackingTheWorld just launched the WT-OBD GPS tracker.  The device plugs into the diagnostic port of any vehicle for instant tracking using TrackingTheWorld’s GPS tracking software.  The device comes with built in motion detection, real time tracking and G-force monitoring.  The device is compatible with any GSM carrier and requires a data SIM card to operate.
