    I have 8-10 LandAirSea tracking Key and 3100 units. These work well, but I would really like to be able to give my contractors a unit that does everything that these LandAirSea units do (take a reading every second, ability to create maps, playback their track on PC, and create reports with total time driven, stops, and mileage.

    I would like a unit that has a screen, like the Garmin, TomTom, and Magellan units.

    For our application (driving from house to house delivering to mailboxes), it is particularly helpful to be able to see where you are on a map, and also show where you have driven.

    I have tried using the Garmin Nuvi 750, which does show where we have driven, has a screen….it also does keep a track of somekind. I have had trouble downloading it (I think the software with Mapsource is still pretty buggy) plus have been unable to get any meaningful reporting out of Mapsource. Also can’t playback. Further, there is no control on the Nuvi 750 as to when it begins tracking and ends tracking…it simply takes a reading every second it is on, up to 10,000 points, and then begins deleting and replacing at beginning again.

    The Nuvi 200 has a hack that allows you to use it for tracking (http://www.marcforrest.com/2007/11/15/garmin-nuvi-200-track-hack/). I have begun to try this unit for this purpose, but again, even with the data, not sure what software can produce the maps and playback that I really need. I like that you can start and stop the unit’s tracking (unlike the Nuvi 750).

    Any ideas?

    Your help is needed, as I need to purchase 6-10 units immediately.

    Thanks!

    I have a trackstick, but will be replacing. Reviews about all gps locaters would be nice. Why only Land and Sea?

    Dear Nate,

    I had a similar situation just recently. So I call some seller to get some information and education about those things. I ended up buying most of my units at universal tracking. Their Sales Manager was able to answer my questions and referred me to discrete wireless where I bought the units they didn’t have. I think he might at least be able to answer your question and gives you an honest overview of what’s out there available and an opinion about the products.
    Come back to me if you want his number but I think it’s on the website, http://www.universaltracking.com I guess, or just google it.

    I hope I could help…

    Best wishes,

    Oliver
