Trac-King GPS device from Rocky Mountain Tracking


trackingThere are dime a dozen GPS navigation and tracking devices in the market these days that it can get pretty hard trying to figure out which is more suitable for your personal use. Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. (RMT) has recently added to the number of GPS devices in the market, although their product has the potential to be the most innovative device yet. Known as the Trac-King (GPS Tracking) device, this convenient and portable-passive GPS will be powered by a couple of AA batteries, where those simple, readily available batteries will be able to juice up the Trac-King for up to 80 hours of continuous movement on a single battery cycle. Useful when you’re on long road trips and visiting countries where power outlets are not easily available -there’s nothing quite like the widespread availability of AA batteries to help you out here. Of course, it would be better to obtain rechargeables that can be juiced up using solar panels.

The Trac-King was specially developed to be a more advanced version of the Tracking Key and 3100, where both of them are passive devices has seen RMT move around 12,000 units over the past 2 years. The Trac-King is capable of tracking virtually every second of movement, and this data is accurate to within a few meters, in addition to taking note of times, addresses, direction and speed of travel, and stop duration. Guess bosses who want to know where their employees have gone to as well as parents who can’t bear the thought of their kids being responsible drivers when away from home will find the Trac-King useful.

All tracking data is stored within the device itself, where the user can retrieve it at a later time by downloading the information via USB to a computer. You can choose from a daily log, route display from street maps, or route display on satellite imagery using Google Earth when it comes to viewing the collected data. The Trac-King is pretty hardy, coming in a completely water resistant ABS plastic casing and has been magnetized to install it within or outside of a vehicle.

This is a terrible company. Their website is very slick, but they don’t have a clue. They sent me a tracking unit that didn’t work then another, then additional parts, (and they made me pay shipping for the replacement parts) but after 10 days and hours on the phone with technical support all they could come up with is that their GPS units don’t work in a lot of areas. I was on the phone with technical support when they disconnected me. I called right back and a guy named Brad told me that it was five pm and they leave promptly at five, even if it means hanging up on a customer. Unbelievable. Gary in sales was pleasant, Rita in customer service was pleasant, Travis in tech support was pleasant, but this Brad character wiped all that out with his attitude and comments. Stay away from these people. Not very good products and absolutely terrible customer service. If I could have left no stars I would have. One star is too many.

This customer lives in an area where there is no cellular coverage which is why his device didn’t work. We did everything we could to help him. We even sent him a new replacement device and SIM card with a different network. Our company maintained professionalism while the customer chose to be verbally abusive (including profanity) to our employees. As always, we immediately offered a full refund to the customer.

Whether you use a passive tracker like the Trac-King or real-time device like the Victoria tracking system, you are sure to get the info you are looking for!

I can see the cellular tower from my house. It’s about a mile and a half away. I have great cellular coverage. Cellular coverage was not the problem. Poor equipment and terrible customer service was the problem.

I am getting confused… From what I have read this device is a passive tracker and doesn’t need a SIM card… Am I wrong?

I agree with Travis. I purchased a GPS device from RMT after being convinced that the device I had was obsolete and could not be supported by their software. The device was set to go off every minute prior to signing any monthly service agreement and after only placing battery in device or charging up the device. Before going online and activating the device I was charged $750 for overages. The device could have been set to go off every hour, day, or not at all. As Travis I tried to resolve the problem over the telephone unsuccessfully. The company takes on a very defensive stance instead of working out problems amicably with their customers.
