The GPS Tracking Key 2 captures the complete movement history of a vehicle or asset. A passive GPS tracker with the ability to determine the precise GPS location of a vehicle or asset to within 2.5 meters of the device, and records detailed travel activities every second. Its ultra-compact size and powerful magnet mount also allows for placement virtually anywhere on or inside a vehicle. It can record up to 2 weeks of driving data with an average driving of 2 hours a day on 2 AAA batteries.

The information provided includes:

- Routes traveled

The recorded tracking information can be viewed by retrieving the device and plugging it into a USB port on your computer: as a written activity/text report; displayed over a digital street map; or - the most popular option - displayed over satellite image on Google Earth. Detailed printable driving reports and animated historical playback can also be generated with the included software.

The GPS Tracking Key 2 has been the preferred choice for a wide range of tracking applications, such as government agencies, law enforcement, fleet management businesses, suspicious spouses and parents of teenage drivers.
