Where Is My Car?

“Where did I park my car?” Have you had that panic moment, “I lost it or maybe it’s stolen?”

With a GPS Vehicle Tracker installed, you know.

Have a forgetful moment walking out of a new place (mall, event center, stadium)? How about dropped off at an airport shuttle terminal (long term parking) and wonder, where did I park my car? Although GPS doesn’t show inside buildings / garage levels, you can see with Google maps where and, if moving, when it moved.

Where  & when…and with alerts set up, as it’s happening.  With next movement alert, geo-fencing alert, and after hours alert*, you will be emailed when this occurs.  I heard in the news about a couple food trucks stolen off their lot!  Although GPS trackers can’t prevent theft, police with GPS location & description can quickly identify your vehicle, especially in motion!  We are glad to hear when we’ve helped recover your vehicle as our customer did when he called in to share and renew –we are glad to be of service, thanks for sharing!

My favorite feature is the EZ-Alert (instant next movement alert).  No surprises when you know the vehicle will move but don’t know exactly when.  Once parked, you click EZ-Alert on the locator box (this pops up when you click the vehicle on your map). I can estimate, once the alert is received, approximately how much time before my vehicle arrives!

Second favorite feature follows with a geo-fence set around destinations.  I know when the vehicle is a mile from my door.  Other locations geo-fenced, I have a closer radius setting.  While other locations are geo-fenced polygonal style rather than radius.  It is nice to recognize the names I have labeled of the destinations reported on daily detailed activity and stops with addresses.

Cell phones can be turned off and lose their charge.  GPS Vehicle Trackers do not have a turn off switch and are powered by the vehicle 24/7.  With Google maps, street viewing is handy to see where on the block of the docking yard your truck was directed to for receiving at a new location to save this location spot for future deliveries.

*For after hours alert, you may want to separate into fleets your vehicles that work 9 to 5 as to those working 24-hour emergency service vans.
