READ THIS BEFORE USING THE LANDAIRSEA TRACKING KEY
1. KNOW HOW GPS WORKS
. The LandAirSea Tracking Key uses GPS to find
its location. In order to lock onto the location, the GPS should have a direct line of sight
to 3 locations in the sky and these locations are changing constantly throughout the day.
Make sure that there isn’t any metal completely blocking this upward / outward line of
sight. GPS signals will go through plastic, glass, rubber, fiberglass, cloth material, or
anything else not made of metal. The more metal obstructions that are above and around
the GPS sensor the longer it will take to lock onto the location (GPS sensor is inside the
Tracking Key). Make sure you choose an optimal location to place the unit for good
tracking results. An example of placement for the Tracking Key is the glove box but
depending on the design of the vehicle, it may take longer to lock onto the location. If
the glove box is very low inside the vehicle with a lot of obstructions, it may not be able
to track. In this case you will have to find a better location to place the GPS unit.
2. TAKE A TEST DRIVE (VERY IMPORTANT)
. Place the Tracking
Key outside with new batteries. Make sure the unit has a clear view of the open sky.
Wait a minute or 2 for the device light to start flashing. Once it starts flashing, take the
unit on a test drive for at least a few miles. Now download your test data by following
the Quick Start Guide for Software Installation and Downloading Data.
Location of the GPS Unit
On the front or rear dash board
Probably one of the best locations to keep your unit
if you do not need to conceal the device. You can
place the unit in a box of tissues or in something on
Under the Front or Rear Dash
It is important to remember that the unit must be
high enough up in the dash board to make an
effective lock. Spotty data will indicate that your
placement may need to be adjusted.
In the Glove Box
This is good location to keep your unit.
Effectiveness may vary from one vehicle to
another, but if placed properly it should work in the
glove box of almost any vehicle.
Under or on the Seat.
Placement under the seat will vary from vehicle to
vehicle. If you must place the unit under the seat,
make sure you test it for a day or two to make sure
it will work in your vehicle.
Under the Vehicle
Placement under the vehicle will vary from vehicle
to vehicle. If you must place the unit under the
seat, make sure you test it for a day or two to make
sure it will work in your vehicle. LandAirSea does
not guarantee that the Tracking Key will work in
this location. If the unit is not properly gathering
data you may have to adjust your location.
