The KML-5000 Passive Tracker provides recording of vehicle or equipment location for later retrieval.

Kantronics' KML-5000 Passive Tracker includes a GPS receiver and a data-logger. Once installed in a vehicle, it can record up to 36 eight-hour days of GPS data (location, velocity, time) in a non-volatile internal memory. At your convenience, the captured history can be transferred from the internal memory to a removable memory card for transport to a personal computer for viewing and analysis.

This product is optimized for uses such as logging the travel of a fleet of vehicles (e.g., used by pharmacy reps, account reps, bus drivers). Important features include low cost (since no cell phone or radio is used), convenience, and the ability to capture accurate, complete location data.

The KML-5000 includes interface software allowing you to use the data captured by the Passive Tracker log directly with the powerful Microsoft MapPoint® 2004 business mapping software. Together, this duo can provide accurate reports and analyses of delivery routes, help you devise more efficient routes, improve driving habits, reduce insurance costs, and more.

KML-5000 Features

  • Unattended operation
  • Compact, unobtrusive package
  • Data easily extracted without removing the logger
  • Low power consumption
  • Includes interface software for use with Microsoft MapPoint® 2004 business mapping software
