Is it still the same reliable equipment?

Yes. Although our equipment is now free, we haven't degraded the quality at all. It's still made exactly the same – improved actually. It still carries lifetime warranty, and still has the best network coverage in North America – one rate anywhere in Canada and the USA operating simultaneously on the five largest 3G/LTE carriers.

Why FREE?

We are determined to become the largest telematics

News: Sunset on 2G (GPRS)

“The only thing that never changes is that everything changes.”

2016 will be a big year for change in the world of wireless. An old digital radio network with 10's of millions of devices is going to be closed down and that means those devices need to be replaced.

Does this impact you? Yes, if you purchased equipment prior to January 1st 2014 without the lifetime warranty, you'll need to upgrade.

The new equipment we sold as of January 1st, 2016 has three distinct improvements:
* New network * Greater coverage * Better pricing

Network

Our most recent 4th and 5th generation equipment operates on the HSPA+ (4G) network which has an expected life expectancy to at least 2021.

Coverage

We have the combined coverage from Telus + Rogers + Bell + T-Mobile + AT&T simultaneously. Our equipment will use whichever carrier provides the strongest signal. Cross border, no fee roaming is totally free.

Warranty

Our most recent 4th and 5th generation equipment will carry a life time warranty against defects and obsoletion.

Speed accuracy

Starting January 1st, 2016 speed detection has fundamentally and dramatically improved for 4th-generation devices. For several years, the reported speed of a vehicle was determined entirely by the GPS device. The result was that sometimes, due to poor GPS reception quality, an event such as Driving or Speeding could display an incorrect speed. Although we made a lot of progress improving speed accuracy, false alarms still occasionally got through. So we went back to the drawing board.

There are two things to know about things. You can know where something is, or how fast it's moving... not both... at least not at the same time. This is a fundamental truth of physics.

GPS provides location; not speed. GPS speed is inferred by a small sample of locations over a short period of time. The more accurate you monitor speed, the less you can know about where it happened. We finally realized that the GPS device can only do so much and we have repurposed them with a simpler task to only provide location; accurate location.

How did we calculate speed before?

2nd and 3rd generation equipment

The GPS device was programmed to analyze it's speed by looking at a few

GPS accuracy and reliability

When you buy one of our GPS tracking devices you want one that provides accuracte information all the time everytime. However, the quality of the information is based on GPS data collected.

PDOP, HDOP, VDOP... what is DOP? DOP is the term used to describe how reliable (or accurate) the location, speed and heading are for any given GPS record. DOP is an acronym for Dilution of Precision.

As more satellites are visible to a GPS receiver, the higher the precision, and thus lower dilution. The ultimate goal for accuracy is for the receiver to see as much of the sky as possible and gain a fix from as many GPS satellites as possible.

However, there are many circumstances that can compromise a clear view of the sky. Just as you may have perfect vision, if something like a billboard is obstructing your view, you can't see what's behind it. GPS is no different.

When a GPS receiver can see a broad view of the sky from horizon to horizon and everything above, it has the best chance of a high precision. If the receiver can only see straight above it will result in poor DOP, or if something is
