ReadbeforeusingKey/TrackingKeyPro

KNOW HOW GPS WORKS. The Tracking Key/Tracking Key Pro uses GPS to find its location.
In order to lock onto the location, the GPS unit must have a direct line of sight to 3 locations in the
sky and these locations are changing constantly throughout the day. Make sure that there isnt
any metal completely blocking this upward / outward line of sight. GPS signals will go through
plastic, glass, rubber, fiberglass, cloth material, or anything else not made of metal. The more
metal obstructions that are above and around the GPS sensor the longer it will take to lock onto
the location. Make sure you choose a good location to place the unit or antenna for good results.
An example of placement for the Tracking Key is the glove box but depending on the design of
the vehicle, it may take longer to lock onto the location. If the glove box is very low inside the
vehicle with a lot of obstructions, it may not be able to track. In this case you will have to find a
better location to place the GPS unit.

TAKE A TEST DRIVE (VERY IMPORTANT). Take the unit for a test run with the GPS unit on

your dashboard for at least a few miles. Make sure to wait for the GPS light to start flashing (this
will take 1 to 2 minutes after replacing batteries). This is an indication that the unit is working

properly. After 2 minutes of inactivity, the unit will go into a very low power mode which will not
drain the batteries. Now download your test data by following the Quick Start Guide for

Downloading Data.

Please Note: Do not put additional stress on the magnet mount by pulling straight from a metal
surface. You should gently tilt the unit by pulling away from the metal near the USB cap which will

easily release the magnet from the metal contact. Removing the unit this way will avoid damage.

Probably one of the best locations to keep your


unit if you do not need to conceal the device.
You can place the unit in a box of tissues or in
something on the dash.

It is important to remember that the unit must be


high enough up in the dash board to make an
effective lock. Spotty data will indicate that your
placement may need to be adjusted.

This is good location to keep your unit.


Effectiveness may vary from one vehicle to
another, but if placed properly it should work in
the glove box of almost any vehicle.
Placement under the seat of vehicle will vary
from vehicle to vehicle. If you must place the
unit under the seat or the vehicle, make sure you
test it for a day or two to make sure it will work in
your vehicle in the location you have chosen.

LandAirSea,Inc|UserGuide2010 15

LandAirSeaTrackingKey/ProUserGuide

GPSANTENNAPLACEMENTCHART
GPS accuracy is dependent upon proper placement of the Tracking Key. Optimum
performance is achieved when the antenna has a view of the satellite without metal
obstructions. The signal will usually be sufficient through plastic, fiberglass, carpet,
cardboard, or glass. Taking a few extra minutes to locate the best location for the antenna
will reward you with the best possible tracking data.
