GPS Trackers Provide Auto-Theft Recovery For Golf Carts
Golf carts aren't the first thing people might think would be equipped with GPS tracking systems but more and more golf cart owners have recently began using GPS trackers to monitor their recreational assets. This is because some golf carts can cost tens of thousands of dollars and more! However, it's not only golfers who look to gain more security for their golf carts by using GPS tracking, but also businesses.
Golf carts are frequently used on construction sites, school campuses, security posts and other grounds where quick mobility is essential, making them true business assets. These vehicles once only thought of as helpful in allowing golfers to navigate from tee box to fair way to green (with the occasional drive out of bounds) more easily are now critical for managers, security officers and other personnel on the job. The only problem is that many thieves also recognize that it is nearly impossible for police and law enforcement to recover stolen golf carts. This is because unlike stolen automobiles, golf carts aren't traveled on roads and highways, making it a challenge for cops on patrol to notice stolen property while conducting daily observations. Criminals understand that law enforcement agencies simply don't have the time or resources to commit a comprehensive investigation of a stolen golf cart and that is what makes the four-wheeled vehicles such a desirable target among thieves.
Asset Protection With GPS Tracking
Real-time GPS trackers are frequently used among consumers and businesses seeking to upgrade vehicle security. Over the past decade, GPS tracking devices have become routinely used with high levels of success in protecting vehicle assets of businesses and families. This is why it was only a matter of time before the GPS monitoring hardware transitioned into providing a satellite eye over other valuable assets such as golf carts. This is because many golf carts now carry a high dollar value, resulting in many golfers taking steps to enhance security for those recreational vehicles. "Equipping a GPS tracker to my golf cart was something I never would have imagined myself doing, but after hearing stories of golf carts being stolen in our area it simply made sense to take extra precautions", said a golfer who now uses a live tracker for his golf cart. "However, what was really cool was that since the GPS tracking data from my golf cart is accessible online, my wife or friends can see where I am at on the golf course anytime they want."
Golf cart tracking might not be the next growing application for real-time GPS tracking but it does show that diversity in which locational technology is being used to safeguard a wide assortment of personal assets.
When it comes to GPS tracking technology consumers want the most efficient products possible. This means highly accurate data, fast update rates, multiple driving reports, real-time alerts and of course the ability to remotely monitor vehicle tracking information. Mobile phones are now the method that most people surf the Internet, social network and connect with the people most important in their lives. This is why it should be no surprise that consumers and businesses investing in GPS trackers demand that they have the ability to review real-time GPS data from their smart phones.
GPS tracking data can be viewed from a smart phone in two different ways: the first being through the use of an app downloaded upon the cell phone and the other via mobile web version. In order to access this data the user only needs three (3) things:
GPS Device Attached To Vehicle
Active Data Plan (Tracker Transmitting Position)
With Mobile Phone Once a GPS tracker device is activated and transmitting data on the target automobile the live locational data is housed on remote servers. This eliminates the need for any software. The data is stored securely and can be accessed with the use of a pass-code and username which allows the user to access their personal GPS tracking data from any device connected to the Internet, including tablets, computers and smart phones.
Software based GPS tracking for cars is a thing of the past. People want their data instantly and they want to monitor everywhere they are so that means making a platform where data is housed online and accessible through mobile computing technologies such as smart phones and tablet systems. Mobile technology is the wave of the future and that wave is only going to get bigger and bigger, resulting in all real-time GPS devices that call upon software to fade into the history books of technology.
