Review Of 54 Live GPS Car Tracker

GPS 54 Tracker Review

One of the most popular selling live GPS tracking devices to hit the market in the last 5 years has been the GPS 54 developed by LandAirSea. Naturally, with so much buzz surrounding this particular product our experts at GPS Tracking Review were anxious to get their hands on the micro car tracker to test and verify the claims by the manufacturer. So was this tracker another one of the many cheap vehicle tracking systems or was it the real deal? Well here is what our team had to say about the product and its performance!

What Is The GPS 54 Car Tracker?

GPS 54 is a tracker that allows people to monitor a vehicle, asset or person in real-time. The tracking system was engineered to record the movement of a child walking to school, the driving activity of newly licensed teen, company equipment and pretty much anything! Measuring 2.2 x 2.2 x0.8 GPS 54 tracker can provide location updates as quickly as every 3 seconds, making it ideal for those wanting accurate monitoring data of a car, asset or individual. The manufacturer claims that the GPS 54 provides its users, “peace-of-mind by allowing you to track the whereabouts of anything or anyone, 24 hours a day”. They even go as far to say that the GPS 54 tracker is 100% Waterproof. Here is what our testing concluded from the GPS 54 review!

TEST ONE: Online Interface Functionality

One of the most important things for buyers is that when they purchase a technology product is that the device is not too complex. That means user-friendly controls and functionality. So that is where our test began. Once the GPS 54 was charged (the device comes with a wall charger like that of a cell phone) and activated (activation took about a minute to complete) our then team explored the online interface. The desktop version of the online interface was fantastic and very easy to navigate. GPS Tracking Review had no issues with basic GPS functions such as setting up geo-fences, creating speed alerts or accessing historical driving activity. So we were certainly impressed with desktop version. For the mobile version we downloaded the SilverCloud App and found that it was great if you wanted to view where a vehicle was located, but was a little cumbersome when it came to accessing reports. This was just because the screen size though and something we have found to be the norm across all GPS trackers. Therefore, our recommendation would be to use the app for viewing live tracking data or setting basic alerts, but if you want to get into the meat and potatoes of the detailed reports that the best bet is to use a desktop computer.

Overall the online interface functionality was very good. However, we were most impressed that the interface had a “Live Chat” option built in for support. Not to mention, the device also came with free technical support available 7 days a week. That was a huge plus for us!

TEST TWO: On Vehicle Tracking

The next GPS 54 review/test was placing the tracker on a car and seeing how it performed. Since the car tracking device was engineered with an exterior magnetic mount our experts decided to test GPS 54 on the outside of the vehicle. More specifically, underneath the Toyota Corolla we used for the review. Here are some bullet points of the GPS 54 real world testing:

  • The magnetic mount was VERY STRONG. The device NEVER fell off
  • GPS tracking data was continuous without interruption
  • The small size of the tracker made it great for covert car tracking
  • The battery-life actually EXCEEDED the 50 hours of movement tracking (57)

Overall GPS 54 performed pretty darn close to the manufacturer’s claims. We were very impressed how easy it was to simply slap the GPS tracker on a vehicle then monitor it from our iPhones. Very impressive.

GPS 54 REVIEW CONCLUSION

After 3 days of testing the GPS 54 we actually think this is probably the best tracker on the market for consumer applications. This is the ideal product for a family who wants to track a child, record outdoor travels, monitor where a teen is going, track the vehicle of a small business or heaven forbid, track a cheating spouse. GPS 54 tracker is very user-friendly and for $99 and $24.95 is really a great value for the small investment. The tracker DOES NOT have a hard-wire option so it might not be great for large businesses looking for a complete fleet management solution or diagnostic reporting, but anyone interested in a small, covert, accurate and cost-effective GPS car tracker will really love this device! We give it 4.5 out of 5 stars!

SilverCloud Tag Review

GPS Personal Tracker Designed For Child Safety

 

SilverCloud-TAG-gps

Although vehicle tracking devices designed for fleet management have dominated the GPS tracking industry over the past decade, the engineers at LandAirSea Systems believe a new GPS solution called SilverCloud Tag will open the market up to a wider array of personal tracking applications. According to the manufacturer’s website, SilverCloud Tag is a device that can provide real-time data that is helpful in teen driving applications, but also designed small enough to be placed in a backpack or pocket. This unique design has the manufacturer believing it will open the doors for less common monitoring applications such as child tracking. With the manufacturer claim suggesting SilverCloud Tag provides the type of versatility that can assist businesses and families increase security, the experts at GPS Tracking Review were looking forward to a comprehensive evaluation and review of the personal GPS device.

SilverCloud Tag Features:

  • One Minute Or 30 Second Data Plan Options
  • Compact Size
  • Real-Time GPS Updates & Alerts
  • User Friendly Online Software

First Impressions Of SilverCloud Tag

Upon receiving SilverCloud Tag the first observation was the pocket-sized housing and sleek design. Clearly, this GPS tracker was engineered so a person could carry the device with ease or covertly place the tracker on a vehicle/asset. The compact size would easily allow a user to hide the GPS tracker in a purse, vehicle glove box, knapsack or random compartment of a vehicle. Here are the exact dimensions of SilverCloud Tag:

GPS Activation

All real-time GPS tracking devices transmit data and therefore require a data plan. A couple good things about SilverCloud Tag is that service plans are month-to-month (no contracts are ALWAYS a plus) and each data plan option provides UNLIMITED updates. The faster the update interval the higher the cost of the data plan. For the testing process GPS Tracking Review selected a one minute data plan at a reasonable rate of $29.95 per month. After the data plan was selected and username + passcode were created it was time to wait for the tracker to be officially activated so it could begin tracking. The activations website stated the process could take up to 24 hours, but took less than 3 hours for GPS Tracking Review.

*Activation was completed online via the manufacturer website.

Beginning The GPS Tracking

With SilverCloud Tag marketed as a personal tracking solution that can assist parents in keeping tabs on their kids, the first test was to put the GPS tracker in the backpack of a middle school student. This student selected to carry the device was a child of one of the GPS Tracking Review team members and was informed to keep the tracker in their backpack for the remainder of the day. What the GPS Tracking Review team saw when SilverCloud Tag was in the backpack placement was a consistent and accurate path showing the student walking to school as well as movements made while on school grounds. In fact, SilverCloud Tag was so accurate it showed the exact classroom the student was in. Clearly, the accuracy of the GPS tracker was on par with the manufacturer claims. Therefore, it was time to move on to the next phase of testing: geo-fencing alerts.

Geo-fence alerts are created when a virtual boundary is selected via the online software. When the GPS device moves outside this geo-fence or safe zone an alert is triggered to the user. This alert can be sent via email or text message. GPS Tracking Review set a geo-fence (very easily it should be noted) that covered the perimeter of the middle school. The goal was for the GPS Tracking Review team to receive instant notification when the student left school grounds. What GPS Tracking Review discovered was the moment the student walked off school grounds the alert was sent within seconds. The alert was accurate, timely and definitely impressive. In fact, the GPS Tracking Review team could see this type of technology being utilized in the future to promote student safety.

 

Taking SilverCloud Tag On The Road

lthough marketed as a personal GPS solution, the manufacturer totes SilverCloud Tag as being more than capable of handling the vehicle tracking needs of a business or parent concerned about teen driving safety. Therefore, the next and last placement testing was the vehicle of a teen driver. Once again, a family member of the GPS Tracking Review team was selected for this experiment. What was discovered was the SilverCloud Tag performed very well as a pure vehicle tracking device. The tracking system recorded mileage driven throughout the day, how fast the teen driver was traveling and a number of other number crunching stats that would be helpful for a business such mileage by state and more. However, the key attribute of SilverCloud tag as a personal GPS, the small size of the tracker, was a shortcoming when it came to vehicle tracking as the limited battery-life would not be desirable for long-term fleet management applications. Another drawback along the same lines is the device’s power limitations. This is because SilverCloud Tag cannot be hooked up to a cigarette lighter adapter or on board diagnostic port (OBDII).

 

Conclusion

SilverCloud Tag calls upon a very user-friendly SilverCloud Online mapping software that can provide a real-time monitoring solution for parents who desire to enhance personal safety for kids as they travel back and fourth to school. The GPS system is also an above average vehicle tracking solution as well, although other options might be more appropriate for fleet management applications. Overall the SilverCloud Tag is a good device and certainly provides significant value considering the $199 price point. GPS Tracking Review would recommend this device to users and confidently extends a 4/5 star rating for the GPS tracker.

S911 Lola GPS Review

GPS Tracker Shop Touts  Mini Personal GPS System

With so many different GPS monitoring solutions on the market capable of doing everything from boosting fleet management to enhancing personal safety, manufacturers, distributors and online readers are always contacting GPS Tracking Review to reinforce or refute claims of GPS device performance. One GPS monitoring device that has built up a buzz over the past year is a system offered through GPS Tracker Shop called the S911 Lola System. According to the product description on the company website, the GPS is the world’s smallest tracker with two-way voice communication and has multiple features designed to increase personal safety. With applications related to senior and child safety on the rise, GPS Tracking Review purchased a S911 Lola System and put the tracker through a rigorous testing and evaluation process to determine how effective the personal monitoring device really was.

S911 Lola System Features & Specs

S911 Lola GPS Arrives

When the S911 Lola arrived, our experts were first very impressed by the product packaging. With so many GPS companies reselling junk units engineered in China or simply putting their domestically developed GPS systems in a cardboard shipping box, the S911 Lola definitely has the appearance of a product with value. However, shiny wrapping paper and a cute box isn’t enough to distract the specialists at GPS Tracking Review.

Before the S911 Lola GPS arrived the device had to be programmed with a panic button number, cell phone number for text message alerts and email address for email alerts. This was one of the very first things the evaluation team felt was a positive because when it comes to personal safety, multiple avenues to alert for assistance are important. Therefore, as soon as the mini tracker battery was charged the first thing tested was the alerting features.

  • Panic Button: when the panic button was pressed during testing it instantly dialed out to the number GPS Tracking Review programmed, allowing the two parties to communicate with one another via speaker phone through the mini tracker.
  • Text Alert: after a geo-fence was created using the online interface, the virtual boundary was intentionally breeched. Within about one minute the programmed cellular number was alerted with notification of the breech via text message.
  • Email alert: the email alert worked as efficiently as the text alert,¬† however the length of time to receive the alert was approximately one minute longer. This more than likely had to do with the transmission of data via email servers, something not related to product efficiency and taken into consideration. Continue Reading »
