GPS-208   GSM GPRS Cellular In-Vehicle Tracking Device


GPS-301   Cellular OBD Diagnostics and GPS Tracking Device

What is a Cellular Tacking Device?

A GPS tracking device utilizes the Global Positioning System satellite system to receive location specific data and transfer that data to tracking software for visual interpretation over a cellular network.  The manner in which information is presented will ultimately determine how thoroughly a business incorporates a GPS tracking device and makes use of the available information.

Not every tracking software is the same and while many buyers focus on the price of the tracking device, the real return on investment is in the tracking software and the features it provides.

What is Real Time OBD Diagnostics?

On-Board Diagnostic systems are in most cars and light trucks on the road today. During the '70s and early 1980's manufacturers started using electronic means to control engine functions and diagnose engine problems. This was primarily to meet EPA emission standards. Through the years on-board diagnostic systems have become more sophisticated. OBD-II, a new standard introduced in the mid-'90s, provides almost complete engine control and also monitors parts of the chassis, body and accessory devices, as well as the diagnostic control network of the car. All cars and light trucks on the road today have an OBD port, usually used by a garage to diagnose vehicle issues and located under the steering column.

CES GPS-301 OBD II Cellular GPS Tracking Device, OBD Plug In

The CES model GPS-301 plugs into the vehicle OBD port and monitors the port for engine information and exceptions, together with GPS location information. This data is then transported over the cellular network and available to you. In the USA cellular support includes Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Similar cellular systems are deployed worldwide.

GPS-301 Cellular In-Vehicle Tracking Device, OBD Plug In

The GPS-301is a miniature, self contained, low cost Automatic Vehicle Location unit that operates over any cellular network with OBD plug in for vehicle diagnostics. It provides GPS Tracking based on a time parameters, speed, distance, Ping and vehicle diagnostics information.

  • GPS-301 On-Board Diagnostics Overview

The CES Wireless GPS-301 plugs into a vehicle's On-Board Diagnostics (OBD II) port and monitors the OBD II system using communication protocols. For vehicles with a hidden OBD port, we offer a cable that can connect with the port and the GPS-301. In the USA cellular support includes Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Similar cellular systems are deployed worldwide.

An On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) system controls engine functions and serves as the diagnostic control network of the vehicle. You can configure the GPS-301 to provide notification messages based on events triggered by:

Accelerometer change
3 levels for acceleration
3 levels for deceleration
2 levels for left turn
2 levels for right turn

Any motion while ignition is off (tow alert)
Set report interval while under tow
Set time not moving to clear alert

Check engine light (MIL alert)
This is an on/off event. MIL codes not provided.

Engine RPM
3 levels

GPS information
Standard info (lat, lon, speed, bearing, date, time)

Idle time
Set speed threshold at which to consider vehicle is in idle state (i.e. 2MPH)
Set time below threshold to consider vehicle is idle
Set time above threshold to consider vehicle is no longer idle

Low fuel
Set fuel level (by percentage of capacity) at which to generate low fuel warning

Vehicle battery voltage (low battery warning)
Set voltage level at which to generate low battery earning

Vehicle speed
3 levels

Engine coolant
Set threshold for coolant temperature
Set time over threshold to generate alert
Set time below threshold to clear alert
