Tracstik Pro

$169

The Trackstick Pro is a tiny GPS recorder intended as a low cost alternative to real time tracking devices. Tracksticks are GPS data loggers capable of continuously recording their own location histories for extended periods of time. The Trackstick Pro can be hard wired, covertly installed or run off of the included cigarette lighter plug. It is the perfect solution for companies and individuals looking for a way to track, record and validate the location of anything that moves. As with all of Telespial Systems products, the Trackstick Pro integrates seamlessly into Google Earth for unrivaled mapping and use worldwide.

TrackStick Pro™ personal GPS location recorder is supplied with a cigarette lighter plug (detachable for direct wiring to the car) and a 3-foot USB cable for downloading the stored data. 

The TrackStick Pro™ keeps detailed records of routes traveled for quality-control and security purposes. The datalogger works with public Web map systems such as Google Earth and MapQuest, eliminating the need for users to update map software or pay software licensing and maintenance fees.

The 3" x 2" x 1" travel logger records location, speed, heading, altitude, date, and time at preset intervals of 1 to 15 min unless the device is stationary.

The TrackStick Pro's™ 4-Mb memory holds up to 16,000 records (4 times that of its predecessor TrackStick Standard™), which can be downloaded to a PC via the included USB cable and Windows software. The software also integrates recorded data with on-line map software and displays routes annotated with travel statistics.

Output file formats include RTF, XLS, HTML, and Google Earth's KML. The location recorder receives L1 (1,575.42-MHz) GPS signals and has accuracies of 15 m horizontal and 22 m vertical.
