GPS Tek attended the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas from 8 to 11 January 2013 and found the latest and greatest GPS products. In the coming weeks we’ll be posting review articles on some of the leading technologies.
LiveView GPS Tracking Devices
The LiveView GPS booth had 3 outstanding products:
- LiveTrac G5 – hardwired, permanent GPS tracking unit for any vehicle. 5-10 second updates over GPRS/GSM signal.
- LiveTrac EZ – portable GPS tracking unit for vehicles which plugs into diagnostic port and sends updates over GPRS/GSM signal.
- Mobile phone locate – allows you to locate your mobile phone 30 times for $20. Uses the phone’s GPS to show its location on map within approximately 30 ft. No app on phone required as it works by sending message to phone then displaying location on a computer.
