Getting Real-Time GPS Locations Data From Kindle
GPS is all around us, helping us navigate between places, allowing us to "check-in" at our favorite places via social networking, letting us geo-tag and of course giving us the ability to monitor important assets and loved ones. GPS tracking is now an everyday component in our lives and a critical function to many smart phone and tablet system apps. One popular form of tablet system is a device called Kindle Fire developed by the people at Amazon, and with the latest SilverCloud mobile app and web-based satellite imaging program people can now access real-time GPS data using the Kindle Fire!
What Is Kindle Fire
Kindle Fire is a tablet system designed by the people at Amazon to compete against Apple in the fast expanding tablet market. Carrying on with the successful debut of the Kindle e-book reader, the Kindle Fire offered a 7-inch touch screen interface display that provides users with easy access to the Internet, social networking, an avenue to watch streaming movies and popular television shows. Most importantly, the Kindle Fire is a cost-effective tablet computing solution which allows it to effectively stay competitive in a market quickly becoming satiated.
How GPS Tracking On Kindle Fire Works
Once a person places the SilverCloud GPS on the automobile they want to track, the user only needs to visit the Amazon App Store and download the free LandAirSea live tracking app. With this app a person can enter their pre-activated username and passcode to have instant access to their personal GPS monitoring data.
The LandAirSea app can even be downloaded upon smart phones and competing tablet systems.
For those who are unfamiliar with using apps, the online interface featuring live personal GPS tracking data and driving activity reports can also be viewed in a mobile version (programmed specifically to work on mobile devices without the requirement of an app) as well standard online version. This allows Kindle Fire users the ability to still access their real-time GPS tracking data by simply visiting the tracking website and entering in login information! The best part is since no software is needed the user can retrieve and review personal GPS tracking data from any Kindle Fire or web-enabled solution! This is especially helpful for businesses that want to provide multiple managers access to fleet activity.
GPS Tracking Is Easy
With so many intuitive GPS trackers on the market combined with sophisticated computing solutions and detailed satellite imaging programs, using a GPS tracking device has never been easier. With the expansion in 3G & 4G services, hot spots and businesses offering free Wi-Fi, anybody can have instant access to their personal GPS tracking data.
Fiat 500 Proves Bigger Is Indeed Better
In the past when most people car shopped they would typically put safety at the top of their concern level over things such as style, comfort or fuel efficiency. Then came economic troubles and skyrocketing gas prices which resulted in consumers thinking twice about purchasing sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and other large sized automobiles known more for safety and less for fuel efficiency. Of course, smaller vehicles are great for parking and reducing fuel consumption, but crash test studies show they also provide less protection in simulated automobile accidents. In fact, according to a recent publication by insure.com, the vehicle with the most expensive rate for injury protections and medical for accidents was the subcompact European import Fiat 500. Essentially this means insurance companies feel that the Fiat 500 is the most dangerous car on the road.
The Fiat 500 actually performed very well in crash test scenarios through the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), being recognized as a Top Safety Pick Award winner. However, insurance companies make their own assessments of risk when it comes to auto insurance coverage and the higher rates Fiat 500 drivers have is a direct result of real world vehicle safety. "The reality is that even though the Fiat 500 performed well in some crash testings the vehicle is still very small and susceptible to extreme damage if it were involved in a multi-auto crash", explained an insurance company representative. "Insurers simply feel more comfortable with larger, heavier motor vehicles than very compact vehicles, and that is why rates certain liability coverages will be higher for cars such as the Fiat 500."
Vehicles that were recognized as the lowest in personal injury coverage by the insurance company study were heavier automobiles such as the GMC Yukon and GMC Sierra 1500.
The reason for the better rating for larger automobiles is based on research that suggests smaller cars are put under more stress in two-vehicle accidents due to the lack of mass. The lack of absorption of smaller cars puts drivers and passengers inside those vehicles in greater risk of bodily harm.
The bottom line is that bigger is better when it comes to vehicle safety, according to the folks at the IIHS.
