What is 4G LTE?

  • 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 Evo 4G LTE device gives you the advantage of optimal performance now and into the future.

Why is Advantage GPS switching from CDMA to 4G LTE?

  • The CDMA network will be sun setting in 2022.
  • 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 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.

What will happen to my current devices?

  • If you are using a CDMA device today, the carriers have committed to supporting this technology through 2022.
  • If you are using a 3G device, it will be sunsetting soon after, although the carriers have not confirmed a date.
  • The advantage of switching to our EVO 4G LTE product today is that you get the most advanced and powerful technology available today and long into the future.
  • And where 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

What’s different about the device?

  • There’s no change to the physical appearance of the product or how it gets installed.
  • 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?

  • 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.

  • The Advantage GPS solution works with all wireless carriers.
  • We have a close relationship with all the major carriers because our goal is to deliver the best quality device at the best 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?

  • No, with Advantage you don’t need a “locate on demand” button which requires manual intervention and often costs you more money.
  • 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 see the last reported location of a vehicle.
  • Because 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.
