Preventing and tackling car crime are top reasons people invest in GPS technology. The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) recently reported that vehicle theft is hitting near-record highs in the United States, with over 80,000 thefts per month in the first half of 2023. California, Texas, and Florida, in particular, saw extremely high car crime rates.
How do GPS devices help fight car theft? GPS stands for Global Positioning System and uses satellites to triangulate the position of any GPS-connected device. Attaching a GPS tracker to a car means that you can track the vehicle’s location no matter where it goes. Owners can also give police the vehicle’s last known coordinates of the vehicle to vastly increase the chances of its recovery.
Keep Your Family Safe With GPS Technology
GPS trackers are just as useful for tracking people. If your kids go on a camping trip with school or a club, you might worry that you can’t contact them once they’re completely off-grid. However, GPS technology doesn’t need a cellular or Wi-Fi connection to determine its position. The tracker will continue to record the whereabouts of the user and can transmit that information to an app or online platform as soon as a cellular or Wi-Fi signal returns.
You can encourage your kids to keep a tracker on them when they go away with friends, have a long walk to school, or go on their first vacation without you. It’s a great way to know where they are without asking them to check in all the time.
GPS Technology for the Great Outdoors
Biking, hiking, and climbing — are there any better ways to explore nature? Attaching a GPS tracker to a bike, a backpack, or climbing gear can help you fully enjoy the great outdoors without worrying your nearest and dearest.
In addition to giving you an extra layer of safety, GPS trackers can help improve workouts and make adventures more exciting. Keep your tracker on while you hike a new route around your favorite national park, and you can later map out that route using the data from the tracker. You can do the same with cycling routes or show the locations of sensitive wildlife. For example, you could use the information from a GPS tracker to mark points where birds are nesting and advise your running club to avoid those areas. In this way, GPS technology can provide a safer environment for animals, too!
How LAS Can Help You Stay Safe This Coming Year
LAS provides three reliable and intuitive GPS tracking devices with various uses. All of them connect to the SilverCloud app, so you can access innovative GPS features via your mobile device or computer.
LandAirSea 54 Compact GPS Unit
The LandAirSea 54 is the culmination of 20 years of careful research and development. This compact, self-contained GPS tracking solution is simple to set up and start using within minutes. The device uses ShareSpot technology to instantly share location information with friends, family, or colleagues. It has a built-in magnetic mount, so it’s easy to attach it to a bike, car, or other piece of equipment.
One testimonial states that the LandAirSea 54 is “…awesome and relieved so much more stress off of me knowing where my kids are when they don’t answer my phone calls.”
LandAirSea Overdrive Tracker With a Long Battery Life
The LandAirSea Overdrive has all the same features as the LAS 54 but is a little larger and offers a much longer battery life. This is reassuring for anyone tracking family members or drivers on the road for extended periods. Like the LAS 54, this GPS tracker has a built-in magnet mount. There are also cables available for both these tracking devices if you need to put them somewhere that doesn’t have a metal surface.
LandAirSea SYNC Vehicle Tracker
The LandAirSea SYNC is our tracker that connects straight into your car’s OBD-II. This tracker is specifically made for monitoring the whereabouts of vehicles, helping provide peace of mind and safety. When a car is being used by someone else, geofencing features can help allocate an area where the driver is allowed to use the vehicle. If the car goes outside this area, you’ll receive a notification.
A testimonial on the LAS SYNC states that:
“It has put my mind at ease knowing that my trophy-winning 55 Chevy is being monitored 24 hours a day along with geofence. Hats off to a great product.”
