Ever wish you had a tool that could prove your suspicions were valid? Next time you sense suspicious activity with your vehicle, make sure PTS goes along for the ride. PTS can track a vehicle to the nearest address, tell how long the vehicle remained at any given destination and provide details of suspicious vehicle activities. Don't spend Thousands of $$$ dollars on a private investigator. They buy this same products and use it to get the information you need.
How The PTS Vehicle Tracking System Works
The PTS unit uses GPS satellite signals to provide extremely accurate positioning, typically between 10 feet and 50 feet of actual vehicle location. The miniature GPS receiver rides aboard the vehicle recording the exact whereabouts of the driver, including the address of each destination, names of streets traveled, how long the vehicle remained at each location and the speeds traveled.
When the vehicle returns home, the PTS GPS receiver is easily removed from the vehicle and downloaded to any Windows® computer. The travel route can be viewed on your computer screen. A detailed map is built into the PTS software allowing the unit to display a variety of travel data, including every turn, locating every stop, the exact time and duration of each stop, mileage and, of course, speed.
Where to place the 'PTS" vehicle tracking unit
If you purchased the PTS Vehicle Tracking System, then you can place the actual unit anywhere you like. However, make sure you place the GPS antenna in a location where it will have good reception. The diagram below should give you some hints on where you can place the GPS antenna.
If you mount the GPS antenna inside the vehicle’s bumper, try to mount it as high up as possible and preferably in the corner. Just remember, you cannot have a metal surface directly above the GPS antenna.
It is not recommend to mount the GPS antenna in the following locations:
1. In the trunk. If you mount the antenna in the trunk it will be almost completely enclosed by metal surfaces. The tracking unit will not work.
2. In a bumper that is completely made of metal. Again, the metal will affect the results.
