Victoria Tracking System
The Only Real-Time GPS Tracking Solution
Tracking System Direct introduces the Victoria real-time tracking system, the newest and most innovative vehicle tracking system to hit the market, because it requires NO ANNUAL CONTRACT! The Victoria GPS will transmit GPS-based position updates every 10 seconds and it can be adapted to perform fleet tracking anywhere in the world! There is no software involved, so the user can read reports from any computer. Real-time tracking has never been easier!
Victoria Tracking System Takes Real-Time To New Level, With No Contract Commitment!
It was just a matter of time before someone mastered a technology that offers live, real-time GPS tracking and NO ANNUAL WIRELESS FEES. The Victoria real-time tracker is that solution; a vehicle monitoring device whose time has come. Compact, portable and versatile, this new live tracker has no software to install and can be adapted to track internationally!
As is true with many electronics gadgets, the latest is great; but wait awhile and they’ll get even better. With live GPS tracking systems, there has always been a delicate give-and-take between the qualities of power and performance. Fast GPS location updates sap battery power. Some real-time GPS receivers update every two, five or up to 30 minutes, to help conserve battery life. The Victoria real-time tracking system updates its position every 10 seconds if the receiver is traveling at least 10 miles per hour. If the device is moving less than 10 miles an hour, it will automatically switch to a reading of every 20 feet.
This makes the Victoria ideal, not only for vehicle tracking and asset tracking, but personal tracking. Its 2 ¼” wide, 4” long and 1”deep size makes it about the size of a deck of cards and easy to transport from glove box, to purse or backpack and back again.
Choose the Victoria tracking system to give the best of both the active and passive market segments of GPS technology. Not only does it let the user know where a vehicle is from one moment to the next, it has the advantage of a historical playback. The user can see where the device has been through a 90-day window. The device keeps recording, even when the user stops watching.
Some Possible Victoria Tracking System Applications
- Logistics companies, with field or fleet vehicles
- The self-employed who use their vehicles for business
- Family members whose driving abilities or memories are diminishing
- Loved ones who are displaying suspicious or habitual behaviors
- Inexperienced teen drivers
- Athletes (marathon runners, cyclists)
- Adventurers (back-packers, rock/mountain climbers, safari)
- Anyone driving on dangerous or unfamiliar roads
- Small children
- Hospitals, government and businesses, to track expensive equipment.
GPS Tracking System Power
The lithium-ion battery, provided with the Victoria real-time tracking system, will operate up to 10 hours on a cycle. It is easily recharged in a computer USB or standard wall outlet. To conserve battery life, the vehicle tracking unit has an on/off switch and a built-in motion detector that will shut down the device if it stays idle for more than two minutes. An extended-life battery, which offers up to 100 hours on a charge, is an optional accessory.
Users also have the option of running the car tracker/ real-time tracking unit off the vehicle’s power. An optional 12V cigarette lighter adapter may be purchased. The personal GPS tracking unit also can be hardwired.
Tracking System Reception
The Victoria real-time tracking solution has built-in internal antenna, so there are no telltale wires to detect, or connect. The best placement for any GPS tracking unit is anywhere with a clear line of sight to the sky. They do not operate well if obstructed by metal or concrete. However, the sophisticated chip inside the live tracker is superior to many competing GPS tracking devices. It can capture GPS signals reflected off the ground, making under-the-vehicle placement possible (utilizing optional waterproof case with magnetic mount). Customers have reported good reception when the real-time tracker was inside a building and placed inside a car trunk. If used for business GPS tracking applications, Tracking System Direct recommends that the customer try several positions inside and outside the vehicle to determine optimum reception.
The Victoria Tracking System Wireless Obligations
Real-time GPS tracking systems use a combination of GPS and wireless technologies to first capture satellite signals to calculate location; and then transfer the data to a server on the Internet for “live” viewing. A complaint many real-time tracking unit customers have is that the wireless subscriptions involve a year’s commitment. The Victoria uses the AT&T Digital Cellular Network and the cost is just $39.99 a month for unlimited service, plus a one-time activation fee of $29.99. Customers are billed monthly and there are NO CONTRACTS.
How The GPS Tracking System Works
After receiving their Victoria real-time tracking system, customers should load their browsers and log on to the secure website, where they can register and activate their Victoria real-time tracking system account by creating a login and password. All data is Web-based and there is no software to install. The user may view GPS locational data from any Web-enabled computer.
The tracking data will immediately display the account’s vehicle or vehicles on mapping by Google Earth. GPS tracking data collected includes speed, direction, time en route and addresses and duration of stops, all of which will be displayed in an information box, once the user clicks on the animated vehicle. The flow of data is also displayed on a chart called an activity panel. The viewer may zoom in, zoom out, pan across or auto center and choose from a number of map options including satellite image.
If the live tracker system is being used for vehicle management, more than 500 units can be tracked simultaneously. The user can easily turn off some markers and isolate just one, or a few vehicles.
Some of the many interesting features of this Web interface include geo-fencing, where the user can set up to 20 virtual boundaries that are not to be breached; setting maximum speed limits and monitoring traffic flow.
Programs can be employed to analyze the data and generate reports. Options include an individual vehicle report, multiple vehicle report, start/stop report, and more.
Even after viewing, any trip can be reviewed for up to three months with Historic Playback.

About Global Positioning System Technology
Global positioning - locating an object on Earth using coordinates from satellites in space - is a concept that has been around since the 1950s. Early use was restricted to the military. In 2000, with the signing the Selective Availability Act, President Bill Clinton opened the technology to anyone, and the race was on for affordable, accurate consumer-based GPS tracking system products.
Today with technological advances, including micro processing, expanded memory and more efficient production, GPS systems have become affordable and available to nearly anyone. Tracking System Direct continues to provide consumers vehicle tracking products that outperform the competition, whether it is GPS reception sensitivity, battery life or functionality. Months of planning, design and testing precede the launch of any new product on Tracking System Direct.
