4G LTE stands for “Fourth-Generation Long Term Evolution”.
You’ve probably heard the buzz around 4G LTE that wireless carriers have been promoting for a while now and for good reason.
It’s the most advanced mobile network available, primarily in terms of speed and the ability to transmit data such as vehicle locations and various analytics.
Our devices are 100% 4G LTE – since 2017.
Experts are saying that 4G LTE will power GPS devices for the next 10 years+.
Why did Advantage GPS switch to 4G LTE in 2017?
The 3G, EVDO and CDMA network have already begun to sunset.
4G LTE networks provide expanded coverage and faster speeds that allow us to deliver stronger vehicle connections and more accurate data insights.
With our Evo and Revo 4G LTE devices, you’ll be able to quickly identify risks and take immediate action to protect your vehicle assets.
Because we have direct relationships with all the major carriers, we’re able to give you the most powerful technology without the premium price tag.
Rural areas are already begin to feel the degradation in service.
What will happen to my current devices?
Although the carriers have committed to supporting 3G, CDMA and EVDO technologies through 2021/2022, we all know what happened during the 2G sunset. Experts say to be cautious, the carriers are in a 5G race.
The sunset is already happening. This means soon you’ll experience areas of blackouts.
The advantage of switching to Evo or Revo 4G LTE products today is that you get the most advanced and powerful technology available today and long into the future.
Most GPS Providers are charging a premium price for it, we’re not.
How does 4G benefit me?
Our risk mitigation platform powered by 4G LTE gives you the advantage of having a true mobile broadband experience that’s up to 10x faster.
You also get all the benefits that come with of having Advantage GPS enterprise-grade technology including:
Expanded coverage throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada for stronger vehicle connections and more accurate data insights
Enhanced, carrier-grade security that protects sensitive customer data, keeps you in compliance and gives your car buyers peace of mind
Lower power consumption to extend device life, backup battery included
4G will power IoT devices like GPS tracking units well into the future therefore, your assets are protected for 3, 5 and 6 year notes.
What’s different about the device?
There’s no change to the physical appearance of the product or how it gets installed. Although, we also launched a 4G LTE wire-free device call Revo which makes installation obsolete.
4G gives you faster data transmission speeds and better network performance while requiring less power and extending the device life. For complete peace of mind, we also include a backup battery just in case.
What makes your devices and solution better than what I have?
We are on a mission to eliminate outdated technology.
Our solution is specifically designed for the vehicle finance market and was developed by the pioneers and innovators of automotive telematics, Procon Analytics.
Unlike other GPS providers, we in-source instead of outsourcing. The design and production of Advantage GPS hardware and software are kept in-house to ensure consistent quality in our supply chain.
We have specialized teams that work in sync to ensure that every aspect of our solution meets or exceeds your expectations.
Plus, we offer premium 4G LTE, without a premium price.

I heard there’s a 5G product coming out, is that true?
Yes, the wireless carriers are working on 5G.
We will be prepared for the next generation thanks to our scalable architecture that enables us to seamlessly evolve.
When the next wave of technology is released, we’ve got your back no matter what.
How much extra will I need to pay?
We are offering 4G LTE at no upcharge.
We have the lowest price available and devices that are ready to ship today.
Is Advantage GPS future proof?
Absolutely. The architecture of the entire Advantage GPS system, both hardware and software, is scalable.
Our system was designed and built to support 4G LTE technology today and provide a scalable solution that’s compatible with tomorrow’s advanced technologies, including 5G and beyond.
My GPS provider offers “locate on demand” – do you have that?
Yes, our solution provides you with a locate on demand button.
Unlike other GPS providers who include a heartbeat once a day or every 23-25 hours and then charge you for a locate on demand, our system provides automatic vehicle locates every time you log in. You’ll also see the last reported location of a vehicle.
Advantage GPS provides you with 5 minute locates, you’ll have more accurate data and real-time insights to help you mitigate risk. Because Advantage GPS devices report in at five-minute intervals during vehicle movement and we capture and display each location that a vehicle has stopped, you’ll have more accurate data and real-time insights to help you mitigate risk.
