GPS Trackers as Security Essentials

While the biggest market of GPS trackers at the moment are commercial vehicles, there is a fast growing new market now which is composed of private owners who wish to have the security and peace of mind that comes from being able to locate their vehicles AT ALL TIMES.

GPS vehicle tracking systems provide the following benefits to private vehicle owners:

1. Provide close to real time monitoring of their vehicles location, speed and heading

2. Ability to listen in on events inside the car.

3. Ability to monitor vehicle stops and door or trunk opening and closing.

4. Restrict vehicle movements to a specific zone.

5. Disable vehicle from remote location, even from a cell phone.

6. Keep records of all vehicle movements indefintely.

7. Ensure that driver performance is within safety standards, through speed monitoring and idle time.

8. Determine proper route for vehicle from current position.

These are but a few of the major benefits for private vehicle owners.

One of the things that we at Philtrack are most proud about is the way we were able to bring down GPS vehicle tracking to very affordable, unheard of levels.

Philtrack basic services for private vehicles cost as low as P42 pesos per day.

Basic services already include the unlimited web tracking, listen in capability, SOS panic button functionality, performance reports, speed monitoring etc.

Given such benefits at such a low price, Philtrack GPS Vehicles Tracking Systems are essentials for your private vehicles and their precious occupants, your family.

Are There GPS Services Already In The Philippines?

We have heard a lot of people saying that GPS is not in the Philippines yet.

For some, what they really meant was there are no maps for the Philippines yet.

For others, they are actually under the impression that GPS is only available to the more advanced countries.

So let's address these issues one at a time.

About the first concern, there are maps for the Philippines already. Google maps in particular has a pretty accurate and detailed mapping for the Philippines particularly for Metro Manila. The provinces have good maps already which are sufficient for tracking purposes. We know this because we have client on every major island group in the Philippines.

Philtrack clients are in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. And in all these locations, our clients have expressed their satisfaction and gratitude to Philtrack for empowering them with the 24/7 ability to track their fleets and not be at the mercy of their drivers.

For the convenience of our blog readers, here are links to a couple of Philippine maps that are excellent for both navigation and tracking.

Moving on to the second concern, GPS is not for advanced countries only. GPS stands for Global Positioning System and this system relies on a sophisticated network involving satellites and ground stations.

So to be truly effective as a means of navigation and positioning, GPS is by nature worldwide. Anywhere you are on this planet, as long as you have a clear view of the sky you can get your position via GPS.

So to answer the question posed at the start of this article, YES we have all the resources needed to make use of GPS, from the satellite signals to the detailed maps. Philtrack on its part, uses its technical expertise to combine the GPS technology with GPRS and GSM and the World Wide Web to create the most technically superior GPS tracking solution in the Philippines today.
