I Love My GPS

No need to stop for directions at the next gas station–or the one after that. Handheld navigators are headed for Main Street.

Nearly 30% of American households either have a Global Positioning System device or plan to buy one this year, according to an exclusiveMarketing Daily survey prepared by Synovate.

Similar to other new technologies, early adopters tend to be higher-income. One out of five, or nearly 20% of respondents with incomes of $75,000 or more, said they have a GPS device. About 10% of people earning $25,000 to $75,000 own a GPS, and 3% of people earning under $25,000 have one.

The Marketing Daily/Synovate survey found that nearly half of GPS owners consider safety to be the product’s most important attribute. Other interesting nuggets:

  • Nearly 40% of owners said they get less frustrated because of their GPS
  • 39% have tossed aside navigational aids such as MapQuest and Yahoo Maps
  • 32% said they use printed maps, AAA and compasses less often
  • 27% said they no longer have to ask for directions
  • 15% of owners said their GPS has changed their life.GPS owners are somewhat receptive to receiving marketing information on their GPS systems–but only if they ask for it.

    Among respondents who own a GPS system, 44% said they are interested in having the device guide them to area restaurants and attractions. But 75% said they “would hate it” if their navigator started receiving unsolicited advertising.

    “The GPS is an emerging form of advertising, like wireless and video games. But the companies have to carefully balance revenue potential with infringing on core functionality,” said Ross Rubin, an NPD analyst.

Good GPS advice for businesses.

Many people depend on GPS these days to guide them instead of traditional road maps.

The community of Nipawin, a popular tourist destination, is encouraging businesses there to register with the GPS websites, so that when tourists roll into town, their business shows up as a point of interest.

And it might be good advice for all business owners to heed.

Ivan Stankowski, the chair of the Economic Development Committee for Nipawin, has done some research on the project and says it’s a great way to advertise your location.

Stankowski also owns the Chrysler, Dodge dealership in Nipawin and says more and more vehicles are coming with built in navigation systems.

It likely won’t be long before GPS systems will be just as common in vehicles as CD players are.

Get started today with GPS Registrar at to register your business on all GPS maps.

Why GPS is an important business tool?

Be everywhere your customers are with GPS Registrar Inc.

GPS tracking systems are intended for tracking both automobiles and people. Utilized as part of a businesss fleet management strategy, they can enhance efficiency and reduce costs. They also allow a company to monitor its vehicle fleet, wherever they may be. 

The principle technologies behind GPS Tracking systems has been adapted from full mobile systems and location (GPS) systems. GPS tracking works on the triangulation protocol between the source of the signal (ie the GPS vehicle tracking system installed in the fleet vehicles) and Low Earth orbit satellites to pinpoint a vehicles position within one foot.

The advantages of using vehicle tracking as a fleet management technique are numerous.

Fleet management is about maximising efficiency, decreasing costs and maintaining excellent customer relationships. It’s also about your visible reputation out on the road, particularly if your vehicles carry your companys insignia or display your business name. Vehicle tracking systems can help in all these areas by making certain your drivers are taking the most efficient routes, are not wasting fuel by speeding excessively and are not damaging your companys reputation by driving in a manner that shows your business in a bad light. There is actually also a strong safety aspect associated with GPS systems, especially in remote or hazardous locations.

GPS tracking can instantly alert a business to any problems or emergency situations. If a automobile is involved in a road traffic incident, some GPS systems will alert the control centre immediately, and therefore emergency services can be mobilised rapidly, even to the most remote places. They can act as a beacon for search and rescue if the vehicle has left the road and is hidden from sight. Thus giving your drivers the peace of mind that their personal security is being taken care of by the business, building a greater level of trust between drivers and management. This is also more likely to encourage a more healthy attitude to on-road use along with a much more responsible approach to the job – not to mention contributing to your health and safety obligations.

Vehicle tracking systems are simple to install and cost effective, making them simple to incorporate in an overall fleet management strategy. Since the technologies is now commonplace, there are systems that are suitable for fleets of any size – from a small business running only a couple of vans to a significant fleet with different types of vehicles.

Modern technology, including GPS tracking systems, have been made to make driving more efficient and safer. It is especially relevant to fleet management and can help a company run its fleet far more efficiently than in earlier years. From issues of safety through to helping a new driver know more about the most efficient routes and vehicle security, GPS tracking should be thought about to be an essential part of fleet management.

Drive Like a Movie Star with GPS Angel

For around the price of a single speeding or red light ticket ($129), California-based (of course!) GPS Angel offers a unique new service that promises to watch over you as your personal guardian against speed traps or red light cameras.

The service uses a simple GPS device, dubbed the GPS Angel V4e. The device ready to use, right out of the box, just plug the power cable into your car’s cigarette lighter. It comes pre-loaded with thousands of known locations where drivers might want to slow down or pay more careful attention. In addition, users can mark their own locations or points of interest, by simply tapping a button on the top of the device.

The GPS Angel also comes with a USB cable, allowing users to download location database updates to their device or annotate their marked locations using a proprietary application downloadable from the company’s Web site.
The service is currently available only in the US and Canada and is road legal in both countries.

New – GPS study finds that real-time traffic updates save drivers four days per year

You know what we hate? Sitting in gridlock when we could be, you know, out doin’ stuff. At the very least, it’s the antithesis of the “wind in your hair,” Dean Moriarty-esque image we’ve carefully cultivated over the years. “If only,” we say to ourselves, “there was a way to find routes that were free of congestion.” Sure, we’ve heard all about your fancy real-time traffic updates — but how well do they actually work? According to a study by the GIS data and services company GPSRI, drivers that use GPS systems with real-time traffic info spend 18% less time behind the wheel than those who do not (that’s a whopping four days over the course of a single year, or enough time to watch 1 1/2 Peter Watkins films). In addition, the company says that smarter navigation has been shown to lower CO2 output by 21 percent — which is a good deal, no matter how you slice it. There’s been no study yet to determine how drastically driver performance would decrease if Bob Dylanwas the voice of your PND, but we’ll definitely keep our eyes out for that one.
