In the past, items that went missing or were stolen had a notably low chance of being recovered. This was especially true for vehicles, which were often never seen again after falling into the hands of car thieves.
Today, though, GPS tracking technology makes it easier than ever before to know the exact location of your vehicle, causing thefts to fall dramatically.
GPS trackers have more utility than deterring thieves, though.
Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about how you can use this technology to track lost items.
It’s easier than most people think to get started using a GPS tracker. In many cases, you simply need to add batteries and configure your tracker settings.
Afterward, you’ll be able to put it to use.
Our Oyster2 GPS tracker is renowned for not only its ease of use but also for its notably long battery life. In fact, three AA batteries can last up to five years.
You can program the tracker to update you once every 5 minutes or once every hour while it’s in motion. If the tracker is stationary, the default setting is to provide an update once every 12 hours.
Since our Oyster2 is waterproof, it isn’t limited to being used on land-based vehicles or equipment. Users are able to track boats just as easily as a car or truck.
It also comes equipped with a ‘driver scorecard’ feature that rates driving performance based on the vehicle’s movement patterns. This makes it particularly useful for parents who wish to keep an eye on their teen’s driving habits.
The Oyster2 also has a smartphone app that lets you remotely manage settings, functionality, etc.
What Else Should I Know?
For added security and peace of mind, the Oyster2 tracker can also be programmed to provide instant updates as soon as movement occurs. This is ideal for someone who stores their equipment or vehicle in a remote location for an extended period of time.
The GPS service provided by LoneStar Tracking is outfitted with end-to-end encryption. This makes it impossible for other parties to access your location (or the location of your device) without knowing your login credentials.
Our service is also facilitated by partnerships with cell phone companies, allowing the Oyster2 to function properly anywhere within the United States. For those who need service outside of North America, though, we have solutions that can accommodate this scenario.
