A Staple in GPS Technology

As GPS systems increase in popularity obvious consequences occur. For one, the increase in features and technological advancements. Another, the hallmark of a popular technology is the decrease in price. This new GPS tracker, the Mini GPS Sendum, is representative of both increased features and decreased price. On first glance, it might look like an inordinate amount of money. However, if this were to come out say two years ago, you can bet it would be close to double the price. It is small - about 3 inches long - the size of a pager. With an internal antenna and rechargeable battery power it requires no external connections, making it easy to conceal and operate.
Based on the "GPS One" Assisted GPS (AGPS) technology, the pt200gps has a receiver sensitivity up to 20 dB higher than conventional GPS based devices. This higher location performance, combined with the ability to fall back to a network determined fix, supports position information from locations not previously viable: inside shipping containers, vehicles, trailers, warehouses, and buildings. Implementations include monitoring people on the move in a large city, not previously possible due to "urban canyons", or shipments throughout the supply chain.
Now, back to what you really want to know. This little piece of work is priced at about $800, with a minimum order of 5. Ouch!
