Activation Obligation Required For GPS Tracker Purchase


Real-Time GPS Devices Require Instant Activation

how-gps-tracking-worksOver the past few years, Tracking System Direct has been providing the most sophisticated real-time GPS equipment to businesses, consumers and police agencies without requiring these buyers to pay for activation costs up front. The reason that the GPS company did not require immediate payment for activation was due to shipping. An immediate activation payment would mean the buyer was paying for GPS locational service even though they did not technically have the tracker device in their hands because it was in transit being shipped from the online store. After reviewing this policy thoroughly the Southern California GPS experts have moved forward with a new procedure that would require buyers to submit payment for activation the moment they invest in real-time GPS tracking system hardware, but also result in users having the ability to access tracking data much more quickly


Starting July 1st, anytime a SilverCloud GPS or the popular Sync Fleet Tracker is added to the Tracking System Direct online shopping cart customers will also see a $29.95 one-time activation obligation which will be required at the time of purchase. This activation is a one-time fee that covers the cost of the SIM card inside of the tracker device as well as connection upon cellular networks needed to transmit real-time GPS monitoring data. Once the order has been confirmed the buyer will then have 7 days to move forward with registering the tracking system online at LandAirSea.

“Real-time GPS monitoring devices are cellular-based solutions that require activation and data plans the same way all mobile phones do”, explained a technical expert for Tracking System Direct. “These live monitoring systems can transmit data as frequently as every 3 seconds and a cost is incurred for the transmission of that data. By requiring our valued customers to pay for the activation up front and select a data plan within the first week it allows us to more quickly get their devices operational. This means the customer can begin using their GPS vehicle tracker as soon as the device arrives instead of 24-48 hours after arrival which was the protocol in the past when customers would pay activation once the tracker arrived. We certainly feel this is something that our online shoppers will see value with.”

From Start To Vehicle Tracking

By requiring payment for activation at the same time as purchase of a real time GPS tracker  buyers will be able to begin tracking vehicles in the quickest time possible. Once the order has been placed and the GPS monitoring system has arrived, the buyer can simply go to LandAirSea, enter the serial number of the tracker, select the data plan that best suits them and begin tracking immediately! The GPS tracking data can then be viewed from any web-enable device including smart phones, tablet systems and personal computers. And as always, Tracking System Direct extends a one-year manufacturer’s warranty and free technical assistance for the life of every GPS product. Technical support is available 24/7.
