NOW ON SALE $579.99


The PTR is a miniature GPS tracking system that operates up to 120 days on 6 internal AA batteries. The PTR is easy to deploy and the water-resistant case gives you the flexibility to place the unit inside or outside the vehicle.

The PTR uses reliable High Speed "GPRS" Cellular for two-way communication, data verification and memory downloads to the server. With a 2000 position internal memory, the PTR will store GPS data when cellular coverage is interrupted and automatically update the server (download history) when coverage resumes. This assures that you get all the travel information from the vehicle.

Unlike other Internet based systems, we provide a powerful software package with the latest "GDT" maps to run on your laptop or PC. This gives you faster access to your units, allows you to look at your entire fleet at one time, and generate reports and routes at will. Every time you launch the software it connects to our server and retrieves any new data automatically so you can go on about your business.

The PTR is motion sensitive and begins to gather GPS data when the vehicle starts and sends the position data over the Internet to a server. The Ranger sends it's position every 2, 5, or 10 minutes as selected by the user. The data is sent using GPRS data service and a two-way connection is made. The data is stored on the server and is available anytime you connect.

How Does The PTR Communicate?

The PTR uses the latest cellular data technology (GPRS) to provide reliable communications. The PTR contacts the server and sends location and status data as well as any data held in memory. The server acknowledges receipt of the data and then delivers any new instructions to the PTR. This is a true two-way “real-time” connection (“SMS” is just one way with no acknowledgment).

If the PTR looses cellular service for any reason, travel information is held in memory (2000 positions) until the server is reached. It is then sent on for processing. Since bad cellular connections are always possible the internal memory assures that you get all of the travel data from your units.

How Do I Get The Tracking Information?

When you start your computer you sign on to the Internet in your usual way. Then you start the PTR software and it automatically connects to the server. All of the data from your units is sent to your computer automatically in just a few seconds.

As the data is processed, the location of your units is displayed on the map and the routes and transit addresses are available for you to view, playback and print reports. The PTR software uses the latest available maps from “GDT” providing accurate location and street information.

The PTR software will reconnect to the server every 2 minutes to gather more data from your units. If you keep an open Internet connection and leave the PTR software running in the foreground or background, the most recent location information on all of your units will continually be displayed.

How Do I Activate The PTR?

The PTR is designed to be used in North America using Cingular/ATT service and you must be in a Cingular/ATT coverage area. The unit is delivered with an internal SIM already programmed for activation.

To activate the PTR, review the service plan information that is included with the unit. Once you have decided which plan meets your needs, call the toll-free number and provide billing and credit card information as well as the SIM I.D. and Unit I.D. (both are noted on the paperwork). We will process your request and enter the activation information. Activation usually takes 2-4 hours.

The Service plans are billed in advance and your credit card will be automatically charged every 3 months for the service you choose (except short term plan). An invoice will be emailed to you quarterly for your records. .

Why Do I Need A Service Plan? What are the service plans?

The PTR uses the latest two-way cellular data service and this service is only available on a yearly plan from the provider. Most of our customers plan to use the unit on a regular basis and the basic plan costs just $25 per month for approximately 4000 locates (1 year service plan required) . This is more than enough information for most customers – yet it is a fraction of the cost of other technologies. We also offer an unlimited usage plan for high volume customers.
