Activation Obligation Required For GPS Tracker Purchase

Real-Time GPS Devices Require Instant Activation

how-gps-tracking-worksOver the past few years, Tracking System Direct has been providing the most sophisticated real-time GPS equipment to businesses, consumers and police agencies without requiring these buyers to pay for activation costs up front. The reason that the GPS company did not require immediate payment for activation was due to shipping. An immediate activation payment would mean the buyer was paying for GPS locational service even though they did not technically have the tracker device in their hands because it was in transit being shipped from the online store. After reviewing this policy thoroughly the Southern California GPS experts have moved forward with a new procedure that would require buyers to submit payment for activation the moment they invest in real-time GPS hardware, but also result in users having the ability to access tracking data much more quickly.

Starting July 1st, anytime a SilverCloud GPS or the popular Sync Fleet Tracker is added to the Tracking System Direct online shopping cart customers will also see a $29.95 one-time activation obligation which will be required at the time of purchase. This activation is a one-time fee that covers the cost of the SIM card inside of the tracker device as well as connection upon cellular networks needed to transmit real-time GPS monitoring data. Once the order has been confirmed the buyer will then have 7 days to move forward with registering the tracking system online at LandAirSea.

"Real-time GPS monitoring devices are cellular-based solutions that require activation and data plans the same way all mobile phones do", explained a technical expert for Tracking System Direct. "These live monitoring systems can transmit data as frequently as every 3 seconds and a cost is incurred for the transmission of that data. By requiring our valued customers to pay for the activation up front and select a data plan within the first week it allows us to more quickly get their devices operational. This means the customer can begin using their GPS vehicle tracker as soon as the device arrives instead of 24-48 hours after arrival which was the protocol in the past when customers would pay activation once the tracker arrived. We certainly feel this is something that our online shoppers will see value with."

From Start To Vehicle Tracking

By requiring payment for activation at the same time as purchase of a real-time tracker buyers will be able to begin tracking vehicles in the quickest time possible. Once the order has been placed and the GPS monitoring system has arrived, the buyer can simply go to LandAirSea, enter the serial number of the tracker, select the data plan that best suits them and begin tracking immediately! The GPS tracking data can then be viewed from any web-enable device including smart phones, tablet systems and personal computers. And as always, Tracking System Direct extends a one-year manufacturer's warranty and free technical assistance for the life of every GPS product. Technical support is available 24/7.

The leader in GPS monitoring technology, Tracking System Direct is an award winning e-commerce store that specializes in personal and vehicle monitoring. Working closely with parents of teen drivers, law enforcement agencies and businesses all across the globe, Tracking System Direct offers GPS solutions for almost any monitoring applications.

GPS Bracelets To Be Discontinued

Personal Trackers Are On Indefinte Hold

GPS Bracelet4Over the past two years one of the top-selling products offered through the Tracking System Direct online store has been the GPS bracelet. What made this particular product so successful was that it allowed families and caregivers to monitor senior loved ones battling memory illnesses such as Dementia, while also offering concerned parents a tool to help them keep track of their children. The product was instrumental in improving the lives of people all over the United States through an application of personal tracking, and this is why our company is disappointed to announce that it will no longer be offering the GPS bracelet manufactured by the people at Laipac.

The most obvious questions that customers who have contacted Tracking System Direct have asked lately is why have we stopped carrying the GPS bracelet and when will we be offering an alternative solution designed for personal tracking? Both are very excellent questions and we are more than happy to discuss the situation with our customers to keep them as informed as possible. Basically what happened was the manufacturer of the GPS bracelet was having issues supplying the wholesale distributor ever since October. These delays forced Tracking System Direct to take pre-orders from customers until stock was supplied. Although this was an inconvenience for some it allowed customers to still get personal tracking hardware even with moderate delays. However, once the delays began getting worse and worse Tracking System Direct had to make a change.

"Laipac would tell us that GPS bracelets would be available on a particular day only to have that date come and go", explained a inventory manager for Tracking System Direct. "They just kept giving us more excuses and more delays which we would explain to our customers, but the inconsistencies eventually started making our company look bad. The numerous delays began reflecting poorly upon us in the eyes of our customers. This is when we knew it was time to move in a new direction. Currently, we have a team of technicians evaluating a number of the most popular GPS trackers designed for personal monitoring and even some new devices that made their debut at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year. We understand that our customers demand quality and we won't bring a personal monitoring device to our online store until we have validation that the product is indeed one that offers easy to use online controls at a very high quality."

Using GPS To Fight A Traffic Ticket

GPS System Data Used In Traffic Citation Fight

policeWe all appreciate the job that police enforcement provide society. They are critical in keeping us all safe and the job they do should get a significant amount of praise, as they are the ones who put their lives on the line every single day to keep us all protected from the bad guys. Although police are a positive influence on the community and key to the personal safety of all people, sometimes people can get a little annoyed with the men in blue. This is certainly the case when a motorist gets pulled over and written a citation for a traffic violation such as speeding or making an illegal turn. Traffic cops routinely use radar guns and other sleuth technology to gauge how fast a motorist is operating a automobile, but this same type of technology is also helping motorists fight traffic citations. This is exactly what many people using GPS navigation and tracking systems are doing when proceeding with a trial by declaration or court trial to fight a traffic citation.

GPS Navigation Systems: Cops Do Not Want To Hear Excuses

Police state that one of the most common excuses motorists pulled over for moving violations state is that, "My navigation GPS told me to turn here". People use GPS navigation systems in the form of portable units or smart phone apps such as Google Maps or iMaps every single day to provide routing directions, but the technology is far from perfection. In fact, iMaps has a very well documented record of navigating people to the incorrect desired locations, and even telling motorists to turn onto one way streets! The problem is that even if a highly-rated app for a smart phone provides incorrect information that leads to a motorist making an illegal turn the end responsibility falls upon the motorist themselves to make the correct decision. Of course, police will be sympathetic to a certain degree if in fact a GPS navigation system is the cause for the erratic driving behavior, but that won't change the party culpable, which is in reality the driver.

"I have heard every excuse in the book when it comes to motorists explaining why they did something that violates the law, but at the end of the day the person behind the steering wheel, pressing the gas pedal and operating the vehicle is the one who needs to be accountable", explained a police officer who did not wish to be identified for this article. "Smart phones, GPS units and other technological equipment are not the ones licensed by the state to operate a vehicle, but rather the driver. Therefore, most officers simply do not want to hear a motorist pass the blame, but rather be accountable for their mishap. In fact, drivers who simply own up to their mishap are far more likely to be let go with a warning than a driver who spends their entire time blaming their GPS navigation or monitoring system."

GPS Tracking Systems: Can Provide Concrete Data

Tracker devices that use GPS locational data are more common in cars now than anytime in the past. GPS monitoring devices now decorate company and personal vehicles, as the systems are routinely used to enhance auto-theft security and driver safety, all while helping many drivers receive a discount on their auto insurance. However, they are also helping many motorists fight tickets they feel were unfairly given for violations such as speeding. This is because tracker devices can record the live locational position, speed and time en route of a driver as fast as every single second! Therefore, the GPS trackers themselves are actually more accurate than a police officer holding a radar gun that could have calibration issues as he is hiding behind some trees near a highway overpass that could also be creating interference.

GPS Tracking Store Open

online-storeGPS enthusiasts and customers visiting the Tracking System Direct online store over this past weekend likely noticed an error message from BlueHost stating that the GPS store was down for maintenance. This was indeed a correct message as Tracking System Direct was performing standard maintenance on Friday night through Sunday morning in order to make the online store operate at the most efficient level possible. Tracking System Direct would like to apologize for any inconvenience the maintenance and upgrades may have caused for shoppers, but is happy to report that the online store is back up and running better than ever!

"After running internal diagnostics on the website we realized that there were areas where we could improve upload times among other hosting-related issues", explained the Vice President of the GPS company. "Our goal has always been to not only offer our customers the best GPS tracking systems on the market, but also provide the highest level of customer satisfaction. The diagnostics showed us that the online store had the ability to be improved and offer an overall better customer experience. Anything we can do to better showcase our product line, inform our customers or simply create a better experience for shoppers is something we will always take advantage of. In order to improve the online store it was necessary to briefly take it offline, but we are proud that it's back online now and better than ever!"

One of the most noticeable changes shoppers visiting the Tracking System Direct online GPS store will see is how quickly pages will upload content. Many people now use mobile devices and tablets to browse online or shop and this recent upgrade will significantly reduce the length of time it takes for users to begin reviewing GPS products and GPS-related news events. The faster uploading will also benefit those operating with slower Internet connectivity.

Anyone with specific questions about the recent update or GPS vehicle tracking systems offered through the online store can contact a representative at Tracking System Direct 7 days a week. We always appreciate hearing from our customers and assisting them with their personal GPS monitoring needs.
