Last week, we reviewed a few lasers, and this week we have a GPS tracking device from LandAirSea. Â It’s the small black box shown above which is placed on or around a vehicle to track it’s movements. Â The device is passive, which means you have toÂ retrieveÂ it and download the data, it doesn’t transmit in real time.

- Storage Capacity: 100 hours
As noted on their site, the GPS accuracy is superb. Â You can zoom way in on Google earth and view a narrow path you walked on into a doorway. Â It was significantly more accurate than I expected.
I had a few minor issues with the device though. Â I noticed a few times where the device seemed to lose a sattelite connection momentarily and my path would actually jump from one place to another. Â Also, sometimes it would record my walking speed as 15mph. Â One final problem was that it couldn’t get any reception from within my trunk. Â Although it’s recommended on their site to place on the car exterior or within the glove box, it’s something worth noting.
Regardless, it’s really accurate for such a compact device. Â Another really neat feature is the ability to import your data into Google Earth. You can playback your route and watch as you progress throughout your day and how long you stopped at various locations. Â However, it’ll set you back at least $250, but if you’re looking for a quality tracking device, this GPS tracking pro is a pretty solid choice.
