How to Choose a GPS Tracker - Learn How to Track a Vehicle With GPS


There are many reasons people might need a GPS tracking device:



  • PARENTS who want to monitor their child's location 

  • PARENTS who want to track where their vehicle is at

  • EMPLOYERS who want to track of their company vehicles

  • SALESPEOPLE who need to keep logs of their driving history

  • FLEET OWNERS who need to track where their delivery vehicles are at

  • or ANYONE who wants to be able to track their vehicle history or locate their vehicle if it's lost or stolen!


The most important step in determining which GPS tracking device is best for you is by asking yourself one question:


Do I want (or need) real-time location information?


Real-time
location information means whether or not you need to know where your
tracker is at any given moment. This question is important, because it
will determine which of the two types of GPS trackers to get.


There are two types of GPS devices: REAL-TIME/Active GPS trackers and Historical/Passive GPS loggers.


If YES, then a GPS Real-Time/Active Tracker is probably best suited for your needs.


If NO, then a GPS Historical/Passive Logger is more likely what you need.


Below is a summary of the differences between the two types:


Real-Time/Active Tracking GPS Trackers:



  • Location Updates - Every 10 seconds to 5 minutes, depending on model

  • Map Interface - Google Maps or Bing Maps

  • Device Cost - Varies, but usually slightly more expensive than passive loggers

  • Monthly Fees - Yes, cost varies by provider

  • Contract Required - Sometimes. Not all providers require this, but some do.

  • Detailed Driving History Reports - Yes, you can save and print these.

  • Live Speed Alerts - Yes, get notified if your child or vehicle exceeds a certain speed

  • Geofencing/Safe Zones Alerts - Yes, get notified if your child or vehicle enters or exits a certain area

  • Device Power - Both rechargeable battery power and hardwired vehicle models available


Historical/Passive GPS Loggers:



  • Location Updates - N/A, data is retrieved when you plug the device into your PC

  • Map Interface - Google Maps or Bing Maps

  • Device Cost - Varies, but usually slightly less expensive than passive loggers

  • Monthly Fees - No fees, just the one-time purchase price of the unit

  • Contract Required - No, there are no contracts because all you pay is the device purchase price

  • Detailed Driving History Reports - Yes, you can save and print reports

  • Live Speed Alerts - No, real-time information is not available with historical loggers

  • Geofencing/Safe Zones Alerts - No, real-time information is not available with historical loggers

  • Device Power - Powered by rechargeable battery


There's
no doubt that owning a real-time active tracker is more expensive than a
GPS logger. But if you need real-time location information, then a
real-time active tracker is the best way to accomplish this. nuvi 765T, Garmin GPSMAP 62St, Garmin Zumo 550, EDGE 500, Garmin nuvi 885-885T, Garmin TOPO US 24K, Garmin nuvi 1390LMT, Garmin nuvi 1250, Garmin Oregon 450t, Garmin Edge 500

How to Choose Between a LED and Plasma TV


Everything there is to know about LCD and plasma TV is just a click
away! If you are considering purchasing a flat screen TV, here's all
the advice you'll need.


LCD and Plasma flat panel TVs have evolved
considerably in recent years. Even if the plasma technology retains an
advantage in the rendering of more natural colors, deeper black, and
very large viewing angles, LCD technology, including LED backlighting,
also produces enhanced rich colors and deep blacks.


Rendering Color


Generally,
plasma technology offers richer and more natural colors. However, with
some upscale LCD TVs, the gap is narrowing considerably. This applies to
models that offer extremely qualitative backlight, including those with
LED technology (which use LEDs for backlighting instead of fluorescent
tubes). However, the entry-level LCD displays a less extensive range,
with drifts of color.


Deep blacks and contrast


Historically,
plasma screens have a head start on the LCD on the depth and shades of
black (no backlight to turn off completely pixels), and show a better
contrast ratio. But from a purely visual point, this advantage can not
be verified in the dark. The minutes of black may also show themselves
better on LCD screens in a lighted room. Obviously, this information can
be disproved by the exceptions relating to the quality of the TV.


Gloss, matte and satin


Note
that the bright tiles, also called Glossy, enhance contrast and density
of black in a dark room. But they are more sensitive to light
reflections which can be very bothersome during the day. Matte tiles for
their part restrict these reflections and accentuate the deep blacks
and contrast. The right balance is found in slabs called satin which
combines the advantages of two other types of tiles.


Lifespan and Consumption


In
terms of lifespan, the plasma has made progress since its longevity is
similar to that of LCD screens: approximately 25 years at 4 hours of use
per day. It is however advisable to opt for a plasma if you live in
high altitudes. The LCD is better for the average consumer especially
models with LED backlighting. Count an average of 200 Watts for the
32-inch, 250 watts for the 40-inch and 350 watts for 52 inch.


Use


If
you are fond of home theater, plasma is an excellent choice. It keeps
the price advantage compared to LCD panels for very large (> 46
inches) screens. These are also less affected by the phenomenon as
marking residue image disappears more or less quickly depending on the
model (Logo channel, dashboard video games...). This phenomenon is most
marked in the first hours of use, a bit like running a speaker. You
should be careful in the first six months. However it should also be
noted that this marking phenomenon is reversible and that the recent
television offer through their menu, tools to address this problem.


The
LCD is more suited to everyday and heterogeneous use (TV, DVD, video
games). But more and more technology oriented films tend to deep blacks
and natural colors of plasma. It is a hard choice but hopefully, you'll
make the right choice for your flat panel tv. Samsung LN19C350, Samsung LN26C450, Samsung LN32C550, Samsung PN50C550, Samsung LN32C350, Samsung UN55C8000, Samsung UN46C6800, Samsung LN32C530, Samsung UN55C6800, Samsung UN46C6500

Free Australian Maps for Garmin GPS

Not often you find free maps but a very smart guy nicknamed Shonky Logic decided to create maps that Garmin haven't considered for Australia. Australia is renowned worldwide for it's vast tracks and ancient landscape, something that many Australian's find they need to be part of by getting in a 4WD, Bike, walking or Caravaning and visiting. Australia's outback though is not a place you want to get lost, something many visitors and tourists find they don't take heed of ensuring they have enough of the essentials such as plenty of water, food and communication. Like anywhere you go remote, it is always good to let people know your itinery so that if they don't hear from you at a specific time it makes it so much easier to find you in the thousands of square kilometres of land that no one visits.

GPS has exploded onto the recreational market, it is the fastest growing technology worldwide. You find it in your watch, shoe, mobile phone (Cellphone), Emergency Beacon (EPIRB), planes, trains and automobiles. Everyday, without realising it, you will have come across GPS and thankfully many people have realised the benefits of these little devices in such circumstances where there is often no tracks or roads, maybe a river, an odd rock or tree, and maybe even a Kangaroo!

Garmin is probably the largest manufacturer of recreational GPS worldwide but they are still developing maps for the world. However, Australian's couldn't wait any longer and so, the development of Shonky Maps. The term or name of the maps is not accurate because there is nothing shonky about it at all. The map is based on the Geoscience Australia (GA) Natmap Raster Maps, and GA is the Federal Australian Mapping Agency. The original maps are designed to work with products such as OziExplorer, TrackRanger and many more similar products. However, the Natmaps would not work on Garmin GPS until now.

If you are looking for free maps of Australia for your Garmin, containing lots of detail including highways, major roads, river, tracks and much more then you must acquire a copy of this map.
