GPS Tracking Accuracy For Slower Vehicles

Optimizing GPS Tracking for Slower Vehicles

Are you experiencing challenges with GPS tracking for your boat or slower-moving vehicle? We understand that slower speeds can sometimes lead to less accurate tracking. This article is here to guide you through the intricacies of our filtering feature and offer solutions tailored to your needs.

Challenges with GPS Tracking for Slower Vehicles

GPS signals are sensitive to small errors in locations and speed, often resulting in a few meters of difference. While our devices utilize a filtering feature to address these changes, it is primarily optimized for vehicles with speeds exceeding 10 km/h. Slower vehicles, such as boats, may experience filtered points, impacting tracking accuracy.

Your Options

  1. Keep your devices as they are:
    • Benefits: The units will continue to display the current location of your boats.
    • Potential Issues: Tracking may appear less smooth when moving slowly through the water.
  2. Remove the filtering feature:
    • Benefits: Slow-moving trips will be tracked more accurately.
    • Potential Issues: Without filtering, small errors in location and speed may create the appearance of constant movement while stationary.
  3. Install the unit's "Ignition Sense Wire":
    • Benefits: Toggle the filtering feature based on the engine's status, filtering points only when the motor is off.
    • Potential Issues: Requires an auto-electrician for installation, involves additional time, hassle, and cost. Installation Guide.
