What happens when your car is stolen? Likely it is gone for good. Even if it is eventually located, it is usually no longer in driving condition. But what if there was no need for a lengthy and uncertain search for your stolen car? With a GPS tracking system, you can exactly where your car is at all times. These systems are known as “Global Positioning Systems” and they can provide a visual representation of where your vehicle is at any given time. The important thing to do with the GPS tracking system is make sure you have it properly installed in your car. And once that is taken care of, you can find your car no matter where it goes. 
A GPS tracking system in a car consists of very few components, and it is very easy to install. A GPS receiver is needed, as this is what connects the vehicle to the satellite (and then the satellite relays the information to your location). Additionally, it is necessary to have two antennae: a GPS antenna, and a cellular antenna. You can directly power these items by hooking into the car’s power, or you can make use of a replaceable battery pack. 

The only other things one needs for a GPS tracking system for the car is the proper software and some sort of device for receiving the information. This is most often a computer or laptop. It is even possible to receive the information on your car’s whereabouts on a mobile phone. A map appears, and your vehicle is represented on the map in a readable format. It is also possible to get an address of the car’s location. This makes tracking a stolen car rather easy, and makes it possible that the likelihood that you recover your car increases. 
Many people are using a GPS tracking system in Trinidad and Tobago to better protect their cars. 
Additionally, there are even companies that use this technology to offer services to their customers. OnStar is one of the main companies that make use of GPS tracking system technology on behalf of customers. 
But you can have that ability yourself if you choose the added vehicle protection of a GPS vehicle device and that is why companies like us at Gaffar GPS Solutions exist today.

 
 
GPS Tracking Helps in Trinidad
Ever had those awkward times where you had to take directions to some new place and you had absolutely no idea where you had to go? I had that embarrassing moment several time but I rarely get into those situations now thanks to GPS tracking.

Several times I would have to go meet with my parents or siblings when they go to some new place and I would be completely lost as to where I had to go.  I am terrible at taking directions and especially for new places so the result would be me just being confused and embarrassed and I still would not know where to go. I would find myself calling to make sure I am in the correct place and wondering whether I took a wrong turn. 

Then there where the other times where the directions you get doesn't even help. You would get the "Look for the sign with xxxxxxxxx and then take a right turn after" and then "Drive about 5km after you are on the road and look for the house with the big gate".

 At times like that I would wish there were an easier way for this to be done. Fortunately there is now, I can simply log into the tracking system and find the exact location of the other vehicle, then it is a simple matter of just planning our route. Many times I would even discover much shorter routes than the one the first car took. 

I was even much more confident when I was driving in this new area and didn't worry as much about that dreaded wrong turn. I could easily find the exact road I was on through the tracking system and switch to satellite view to get a better idea of where exactly I was.

Now I'm sure you are saying well that would only work if the other car had GPS tracking installed. While this is true I also had times where I had to take directions and all I had to do was pull open the tracking system and find the exact roads which they were talking about. One client even said that they stopped using any other maps all together since our system will have that map plus others so it's just a matter of using the preferred map. Luckily our maps at Gaffar GPS Solutions has almost all the roads in Trinidad and Tobago with new content being added on a regular basis.

Another solution which works if I had to follow a friend or family member was to simply toss in my personal tracking device and see their exact location. After I get to them all I had to do was to just take the device and put it in my pocket since it is smaller than my cell phone. I even gave my little brother the device to carry with him when he goes out to ensure his safety and so that whoever is picking him up will know exactly where. That is why I bought it in the first place but found it to be useful in so much other areas so I had to get more.

Well this was just some of my first hand experiences of GPS tracking for personal use and there are much more uses for it. If you have anything you would like to add, suggest or ask please feel free as this is why I added this section in the website.

We at Gaffar GPS Solutions strive to keep you informed about the technology which you are investing in and how it is beneficial to you. If you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance or even some free advice feel free to Contact Us.

American Signature, Inc, a furniture company in the eastern US, implemented GPS tracking for 50 of its 130 total stores in 2009. As a result of the improvements made to their delivery systems through fleet management software , the company has since seen a 15% reduction in miles traveled per store, a 20% reduction in overtime for the delivery teams, and an 11% increase in dollars of merchandise delivered per mile traveled (Aberdeen Group, 2009).

The use of fleet tracking systems in the US is expected to double in the next four years, from 13.3 million to 30.4 million in 2016 according to ABI Research. “The commercial telematics market continues to enjoy good overall growth as smaller fleets and new non-trucking segments such as delivery, service and public and private transportation are being addressed by vendors offering more affordable solutions,” said Dominique Bonte, VP of Telematics and M2M at ABI.

As more options for fleet tracking emerge, the communication and management capabilities of GPS technology benefits manufacturing businesses both large and small. Businesses can use it to find the most direct driving routes, adapt to current traffic conditions on the fly, and streamline their procedures to be both timely and cost-effective. That is why most businesses in Trinidad and Tobago are embracing GPS technology with open arms

Today's most advanced car security systems is GPS tracking with capabilities that are extremely helpful in locating an apprehended vehicle.  Beyond the ability to pinpoint the vehicle's location, these GPS tracking systems offer many two way communication options to car owners.  Owners are automatically notified via phone call or text message if a car has been broken into.  Owners can also contact the cars remotely through the GPS trackers  

From anywhere in the world, these car alarms GPS tracking devices can be armed or disarmed with a phone call or text message. You can manage your vehicle in Trinidad and Tobago from wherever in the world you are located. Doors can be locked or unlocked by dialing into the GSM alarm.  And, the car's status in many areas can be remotely determined.  Wondering if the doors are open or shut?  Wondering if the car alarm has been engaged?  With the capabilities of GPS tracking you can wonder no more.  These systems can even tell you if the engine is running, regardless of its location. 

A highly desirable security feature of the GPS tracking devices is that they allow the car's owner to remotely immobilize the car at any time and from any location to thwart a robbery attempt.  The car owner can also engage or disengage the vibration sensor, and even determine the reason why the car alarm activated before notifying the owner via phone call or text message.

Within moments of a break-in, the GPS tracking car alarm will call or text the car's owner to advise them of the situation.  Because these systems are able to discern the particulars of the break-in situation, the owner notification also offers the owner important information about how to proceed.  And, if silent mode has been selected, these things can be accomplished without ever alerting the thief that the alarm has engaged.

The additional cost of adding GPS tracking to your car alarm is actually quite reasonable when compared to the cost of otherwise trying to recover an apprehended vehicle.   These GPS tracking car alarm features are being utilized in Trinidad and Tobago by individual car owners as well as car rental and fleet management firms to manage their assets in a cost-effective, proactive manner.  Any car alarm will offer some peace of mind to the car's owner, but these GPS tracking features take this to a whole new level in the global marketplace.
