Gotrack sounds like a cellphone plan...it does all this stuff, but first you have to buy the unit and then a data plan!

Can use a little help on installation. I understand needing gnd and +12 then there is white wire to come off inition. I guess this is what they use for
determining time spent at a location. Question is....on chev how far into the steering column will I have to go to get that signal.

Mine is a locator and works real time. I got it running out of the cir outlet
and seem like a miracle. It identified my truck as setting in front of my house just like it was. And it did that in just a few minutes after I turned it on.
No more hiding from the boss.

Omega gps 4550. You can set a geophysical fence and if your trucks go out of your designated service area, you get a text. You can also set a max speed and if exceeded you will get a text. Can also track unlimited for 5 years for $79. Unit cost more than others but works great.

Buying GPS in vehicles is a total waste of money... unless your worried about your vehicle getting stolen... which insurance should take care of at that point...I'd worry about GPS in your equipment and then investing thousands of dollars in firearms and ammunition and alibi's!!!
