Can someone help me pick? Also, if theres a better one out there what is it? i know that i want the text to speech feature, but not sure what other features are important/nice to have. im also not sure which is better/ has more memory. the ones with the built in memory or the ones that have sd cards. HELP! I dont want to spend more than $350. the two that i am currently torn between are the garmin nuvi 350 and the garmin nuvi 260w…basically i want to know what the diff is between the two, which would you all reccommend, is there a better one out there for what i want to spend, and what features are a must have in a gps??

    Anyways, I own a company and I’ve caught my workers in a lie of telling me what time they returned from a job site. They claimed 4pm and all of them had it on their time cards, and yet I saw them returning home at about 1:30pm.. I’m in search of a really great GPS tracking system with great battery life, and be able to see where they are, and what time they’re returning back to the shop.

    Thank you!

  11. My dad owns a used car dealership. He recently purchased a GPS tracking device off Ebay relatively cheap. The intent is to install GPS systems in the more expensive cars we sell so that if people skip town or move we have a way to locate the car for repossession. My question is how do units like this work? From my understanding you have to buy a SIM card and install it in this thing. Then from there you can send a SMS text message to the SIM card and it will respond with Latitude and Longitude of the unit.

    Neither one of us really understand completely how this works. Where we could get our hands on a SIM card or if there is a way to get one without a monthly fee or anything like that.

    Also is there a GPS tracking unit we could buy that wouldn’t need a SIM card that we could just track online or something? We don’t really need anything fancy and would prefer something with no monthly fee. It’s likely that we’d never have to use it but if someone takes off with a $10,000 car we’d like to be able to track it down.

    Any suggestions?

  13. I am developing a GPS tracking system for tracking individuals, and require a small self powered unit, which i may place into a custom wearable enclosure with on-board power, rfid, power source and to fit in a watch sized package.

    The device must contain a slot for a SIM, power supply, antenna (etched on the PCB possibly) and a RFID chip. I will require scalable units to purchase, and need support in modifying and testing of the final design.

    I am a mechanical engineer, and product design consultant. I will specify the product brief, packaging and mechanical constraints for the package. I requrie help and suppliers for the electronics.

  46. Although, Glonass is fairly new however there’s a lot of noise about it over GPS especially when Nokia and Apple have tied with this Russian Major.
    I am still wondering which technology is better for Vehicle Tracking/Fleet Management.

    Thanks in advance for your comments.

  47. I have a job interview soon with a car rental place at the air port to uninstall and install GPS Navigation systems. I’m MECP certified, and I have installed countless GPS “tracking” systems (easy). But i’ve never installed a GPS Navigation system. How much more difficult is it? I’d imagine it’s just some more wires like radio antenna, and splicing the stock radio wires into it, as well as installing the screen. I just want to be ready.

  48. I need to get a 12V+ constant, 12V+ ignition and ground. How can I remove the ignition tumbler to get access to these wires?

  49. Does anyone have any experience, which are the latest after-market vehicle theft recovery (tracking) systems that also get good reception and work on a convertible? The mounting of the antenna is particularly problematic on older (classic Mercedes) convertibles because the steel dash shields the antenna and other locations, either don’t provide enough space or create other problems.

    I would like to be able to not only track the car on-line, but also by calling in to check for its current location (for instance, when I am parked in a parking garage in the mall, etc.

    I am not interested in LoJack or Teletrac as they do not work well. Also, I would like to be able to track the car myself via internet.

    My main problems with the past systems that I have used is that they often did not work, especially when the car is near an airport, inside a garage or in other “dead zones”.

    THANKS!
    Tom
