Know Someone Who is Navigationally Handicapped?

My co-worker's wife just called him at work because she got lost and couldn't figure out how to get home from downtown Tampa. Let me repeat myself: HE WAS AT WORK.
Our company's CEO had a similar situation with his daughter. Their neighborhood was under construction and her usual route to school was blocked. She had to detour around the obstacle, and their neighborhood is a maze.  She didn’t want to be late for school, but couldn’t get her bearings.
My child called with a flat tire on the highway, and had no idea where he was.  He knew the highway, but wasn’t sure what mile marker he was near.
All three were helped using DashTrac.
In less than two minutes – any DashTrac user can log into their account, quickly determine a vehicle’s exact location, the speed it is traveling and the direction they're moving in. It’s so easy just to talk them through their dilemma in a safe, calm and dependable way.
How cool is that?

New! Landmarks and Geofencing

Landmarks

Landmarks and Geofences are a thing of beauty. It’s simple. A landmark is a specific geographic spot you choose on the map.  DashTrac lets you draw a circle around that point. So, say you want to “Landmark” your son’s girlfriend’s house. You will receive an alert when his vehicle enters that circle. A Geofence?  It’s the actual circle. There are multiple ways to use these features.

KEEP IN: Set up the landmark/geofence combination to alert you during specific hours if the vehicle leaves the determined perimeter. Geofence your child’s school, spouses’ place of employment, your company during work hours, etc.  Think your employees are sneaking off during business hours?  Now you have proof.

KEEP OUT: Set the Geofence so that it will send an alert if Johnny visits Mary’s house on a school night. If you are suspicious of someone’s behavior and want to be alerted if they come within a certain perimeter of a specific address – DashTrac will let you know.

 

Here’s the best. If your child has a curfew – you can receive an alert if their car comes home late! We know this works because our corporate president’s son made a boo-boo last week. He was “watching over” his twin sisters while the parents were out. Seems he came home two hours late. BUSTED. This child knows the device is in his car! Go figure.

Unique to DashTrac, Landmarks and Geofences – with alerts - are useful in any scenario. All of the information is validated with GPS accuracy using a small GPS tracking device that fits easily into your vehicle's OBD port. Find out more by visiting our homepage.
