Mar 18, 2009

Lightning GPS have announced their latest GPS tracker, the super-small Spark Nano.  Roughly the size of a 9V battery, the Spark Nano claims to bring military-grade GPS tracking to the consumer market; it also has a panic button, in case of emergencies. 

 

An internal rechargeable battery is good for up to five days of continuous tracking, and the casing is waterproof and "extremely durable".  Meanwhile the monitoring software allows you to set up automatic zone alerts - which send out emails and SMS messages when particular locations are entered or left - and can be accessed from a full browser or mobile device. 

There's also speed alert monitoring, useful if you're tracking a teenager or employee driving and the Spark Nano takes approximately 40 seconds to get a GPS fix when powered on.  The Lightning GPS Spark Nano is available now, priced at $299.95; service plans cost from $49.95 per month, with the panic button service a $5 extra.

 

Press Release:

Demand for tiny GPS Trackers has spread from police and military investigators to soccer moms wanting to keep an eye on family members.

http://wwww.lightninggps.com [Lightning GPS] , the primary supplier of covert GPS Tracking to military and law enforcement is moving aggressively to meet this demand.

http://wwww.lightninggps.com [Lightning GPS] announced today that it would release the tiny "Spark Nano" GPS Tracker to the general public. Venturing into the consumer sector is a radical move for Lightning GPS, a company well known as the main provider of covert GPS Tracking to Police Departments, the Military, and DHS.

Sometimes tiny just isn't small enough.

"Everyday we field desperate calls from parents who are begging us for implantable GPS Trackers that they can use to track their family members," says Jason Lazarus, VP of Research and Development for Lightning GPS. "There is a very real demand for this technology that is just not yet available to the public."

With its "nano" size and friendly look & feel, the Spark Nano GPS Tracker has a strong appeal with everyone from parents to Professional Investigators who desire stealth tracking. About the size of a 9-Volt battery, this rugged, waterproof tracker can go anywhere and track anyone.

"We asked customers what they wanted and the message was clear," says Lazarus. He explained, "Consumers want all the features and accuracy of a professional GPS Tracker without the cost or complex software associated with most military grade GPS Trackers. Our team successfully developed a system that combines all of the professional grade GPS Tracking features in the smallest possible, easy-to-use package."

The new web-based tracking system designed for the Spark Nano is so easy-to-use, that http://wwww.lightninggps.com [Lightning GPS] launched a http://www.lightninggps.com/gps-tracking-devices/spark-nano-real-time-gps-tracking-device-4.html [Free Live Demo] that requires no training at all to get started.

This is the first "consumer friendly" military grade GPS Tracking system available to the public. Its versatile design and user friendly interface makes it perfect for tracking employees, vehicles, or family members. There is even a Panic Button to make this tiny GPS Tracker a personal safety beacon that alerts people when the wearer feels they are in danger, pointing out exactly where they can be found. The same powerful features professional investigators expect such as e-mail/text alerts, and even geofence to get alerts when entering or exiting geographic areas are built in.
