  Question: I do not want my drivers to be aware of the Mobiletekz GPS tracker in the car. Can I install it and track without them knowing?   Answer: The answer is "yes!" A good installation is virtually undetectable by the vehicle user. It is important to follow the instructions given in the installation guide to ensure the tracker is both hidden and fully functional.
       
  Question: Is it difficult to install?   Answer: It is easy to install for somebody who is handy. The GPS vehicle tracker needs to be placed under the dashboard (with zip ties) and the antenna needs to be placed under the 'A' pillar of the car. The installation guide provides easy to follow instructions. Most customers are able to install the tracker in under an hour. If you are not particularly handy then most automotive garages can install the GPS tracker for around $100.
       
  Question: What if my driver speeds or goes outside the geofence and I am not at my computer?   Answer: You can receive alerts to your cell phone telling what the alert is for and their location. For speeding it will say what the speed is. For breaking a geofence, it will give location to within 50 feet, time of day and speed.
       
  Question: How often does the Mobiletekz GPS system locate my vehicle?   Answer: Your vehicle is located every 1, 2, or 5 minutes while it is in motion (Depending on the service you purchase). Sometimes your vehicle will be out of cellular coverage but you will still receive these locations when your vehicle comes back into cellular coverage. However, there will be times when your device is hidden from GPS satellites so you will miss these locations but that should be infrequent. Click here to see how it works.
       
  Question: How accurate are the speed and geofence alerts?   Answer: The device reports its location every 1, 2, or 5 minutes while in motion. The reported speed is the speed when the location is taken so you will receive a speed alert if your driver is speeding at the instant of the location. The smaller the location interval the smaller the interval your driver can speed without detection. Similarly, with geofence alerts, the entry or exit of a geofence is determined when a location is taken. The smaller the time interval between locations means the sooner you will know when a driver has entered or exited a geofence.
       
  Question: How many geofences are supported?   Answer: You can have 50 geofences for each GPS vehicle tracking device and 50 global geofences per account. Each geofence is square and centered around an address that you specify.
       
  Question: How many alert recipients are supported?   Answer: You can have 3 alert recipients for each device. A recipient may be either an email address or a cell phone number. If a recipient is a cell phone then the message will be delivered as SMS.
       
  Question: Where will the Mobiletekz unit work?   Answer: The Mobiletekz GPS tracking device will work in the US, Canada and Mexico (special pricing and activation needed for Canada and Mexico use).
       
  Question: What type of mapping does Mobiletekz use?   Answer: Mobiletekz uses Google mapping which includes a standard map, satellite, and hybrid (lays map over satellite image).

  Question: How do I use the Starter Disable feature?   Answer: Locate the starter wire. Connect the white wire on the relay to the starter wire (starter side). Connect the red wire from the relay to the ignition side. Connect the green wire to the starter relay.
       
  Question: How do I use the Door Unlock feature?   Answer: Connect the brown wire from the tracking unit to the power unlock wire. The tracking unit sends a negative pulse to unlock the doors.

  How Mobiletekz can help you?
  You might be asking yourself what the benefits of GPS tracking systems are for you as a business owner as well as the obvious advantages for your dispatching or fleet management staff. What you should know is that the implementation of a GPS tracking system has a variety of features that have a positive effect on many other departments and divisions.
   
  Any business that has a fleet of vehicles, farm, shipping, limousines, taxis, or construction equipment would benefit from the installation of GPS tracking devices. Not only are they extremely useful for vehicle tracking, they can be used as a people locator. GPS uses a network of 24 satellites in staggered orbits around the Earth. At any time, from any location on the planet, four of these satellites are "visible" -- capable of receiving and sending signals. This means tracking devices can by used at any moment in time for vehicle tracking or as a people locator to track staff.
   
  Once the unit is installed, it will communicate with the 4 satellites and transmit the following information: latitude, longitude, altitude and time. The location data is transmitted via cellular modem to the Mobiletekz database where it is translated and placed on a "Google" street map to be viewed by you in your account. The process repeats as the receiver moves and the unit constantly updates the information. If there is a vehicle tracking unit in a fleet of taxicabs, for example, the central dispatcher can monitor each vehicle's location, stop time, route taken and speed. An even more critical application would be to have these GPS units installed in a fleet of ambulances or police patrol cars.
   
  Another extremely important application for GPS involves tracking stolen vehicles. With tracking devices installed, vehicles can be rapidly located and recovered, often within minutes of the theft. GPS vehicle tracking devices can also be found on boats, planes, movie-making gear and laptop computers. GPS technology has unlimited benefits and uses. No matter how small or large, a company only stands to profit by using the type of technology that GPS tracking.
