LiveViewGPS, a Southern California-based wireless location services and products developer, has announced the launch of the Live Trac EZ GPS Vehicle Tracker. The new GPS device can be installed quickly and provides 10 second tracking updates.
An On Board Diagnostic Port (OBD-II port) is installed in majority of cars and trucks made after 1996. The OBD-II port’s main function is to aid technicians in analyzing and troubleshooting problems faced by the vehicle. Located under the driver’s dash, it only needs to be plugged in with the tracker and it begins tracking and transmitting GPS data instantaneously.
Since installation of the device can be completed in a matter of seconds once the OBD-II port is located, it makes the Live Trac EZ GPS a portable device, which can be easily moved from one vehicle and plugged into another. The tracking device is completely web-based and uses a tracking portal. Furthermore, alerts can be set up for ignition start-up and speeding while the reports also include bird’s eye view / hybrid / satellite mapping and historical playback.
The Director of product development at LiveViewGPS, Christa Markman stated that the technology is best suited for commercial and personal use. Parents can track the driving activity of their teenagers whereas businesses can use it to improve employee productivity and efficiency. The LiveViewGPS can also be used effectively for customer service, to pinpoint the accurate location of the vehicle when the client calls for a delivery update or report.
LiveViewGPS provides location-based wireless services and products for law enforcement, family safety and businesses. The GPS tracking devices range includes asset trackers, surveillance monitoring tools, fleet tracking systems, trailer tracking systems, vehicle tracking systems, GPS asset protection devices and people tracking devices.
