Types of car positioning devices and specifications

Navigation devices for cars are classified into two main categories, namely standard positioning devices and wireless positioning devices. For each device, technical factors, specifically the specifications will let the user grasp the basic characteristics of the locator. From there, you can choose the right equipment for your car.

For car positioning devices, the basic parameters that the user needs to understand include the chip and frequency band and some other types of parameters. Chip is a part integrated in a positioning device, also known as a GPS chip (short for Global Positioning System — a global positioning system). The principle of operation of the chip is to receive satellite signals and have the function of transmitting that signal. Based on the distance from the car positioning device to about 3 different satellites, one can determine the position of that device on the ground accurately. The acquisition of information from GPS positioning chip is held 2 times / day.

The band on the devices has the function to determine the positioning frequency and the frequency of signals emitted from the device, allowing the accuracy of the device’s position on the ground. Some positioning devices use positioning chip and band with different parameters. Example: Location device TG102E: using Micro SIM; GSM 4 bands 850/900/1800/1900 MHz; X7 car navigation device using GPS chip is MT600 with GPS sensitivity of -159 dBm; VT202 positioning device uses 4 bands 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

Software package included with the purchase of the navigation device

For car navigation equipment, bundled software packages are divided into 4 levels including: FREE (from Free + 1 to Free + 4), CHEAP (from Cheap + 1 to Cheap + 4), BASIC (from Basic + 1 to Basic + 4), STANDARD (from Standard = 1 to Standard + 4) … Depending on your needs, you can choose a suitable package.

Product warranty period

The car locator is stamped with warranty, on the stamp is marked with the warranty month and year boxes and marked in the box. The warranty period of the device is from 6 to 12 months.

Some other note

In order to ensure the installation of a good quality car navigation device, users should note the following points:

Equipment purchased must meet the standards of the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Information and Communications. The Ministry of Transport has specified 38 business establishments licensed to trade in car navigation products in Vietnam. Therefore, vehicle users need to find out exactly and go to the right reputable addresses to buy products. In addition, these positioning devices must ensure A — GPS function can work well and stably on the national telecommunications infrastructure of Vietnam.

The device should be stored away from high humidity, avoiding strong impact. You should also check your device’s SIM and network connections regularly to make sure the connection is stable and flexible. One of the causes of an interrupted connection could be lost power. Therefore, the connection to the car battery is also an issue that needs to be checked regularly.

Car navigation equipment (also known as black box) is essential and popular with most cars today. To ensure safety, the driver needs to carefully consider and select a reputable address to ensure the quality of the device.
