FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2013) - Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. has announced it is in the process of developing a new software to measure engine run-time. The engine run-time feature will enable customers to monitor vehicle usage during both scheduled work times and off-hours.
The GPS Fleet Tracking & Monitoring System with On-board Diagnostics is ideal for companies wishing to comply with safety regulations for over-the-road drivers.
Federal mandates require that a trucker drive no more than 14 hours in a 24-hour period. This means that every day, a trucker must stop driving for at least ten hours. Any less than ten hours of time off means a trucker is sleepy and responds poorly to changing situations on the road. But this new software ensures that drivers are complying with these safety standards.
An estimated 5% of truck drivers moonlight, or take a second driving job after their primary one. Though this is not illegal in itself, it means that the second job cuts into the mandated ten hours of downtime a trucker must have.
The other advantages of the software features, as planned by the Rocky Mountain Tracking engineers, include reducing engine run-time with unattended vehicles and monitoring unauthorized use of vehicles. A company will know for sure that its employees are using their vehicles and equipment only for work-related tasks, and only during their scheduled working hours.
"Our goal is to simplify the jobs of fleet managers by offering them the tools necessary to reduce task management and operating costs," says Brad Borst, president of the company.
Companies that use the GPS Fleet Tracking & Monitoring System with On-board Diagnostics will spend less time monitoring job performance and truck safety, and they'll have a better picture of what happens with their vehicles. Besides simply tracking, they'll know that the equipment is being used in a safe, efficient manner.
About the company: Rocky Mountain Tracking was founded in 2003 and specializes in GPS tracking software and devices. They have provided more than 50,000 products and services to companies around the world and utilize devices that meet only the highest GPS standards.

FORT COLLINS, Colo., June 12, 2012 -- Rocky Mountain Tracking, a leading provider of GPS asset tracking devices since 2003, is proud to announce the release of the Smart Tracker Plus. The Smart Tracker Plus is similar to the extremely popular Smart Tracker, except the former has new, enhanced features. A waterproof casing, long lasting battery life and remote activation capability makes this an ideal GPS tracking device for construction companies, tractor trailer operators, and other industries that rely on their heavy machinery every day. Especially those companies that simply cannot afford to operate with the theft or disappearance of such valuable equipment.
There are more than 77,000 reported cases of heavy equipment theft each year alone in the nation. Usually items are not ever found again; some estimates point to a 7% recovery rate. Just like the Smart Tracker, the Smart Tracker Plus features remote activation and locates. That means customers can leave their devices un-activated, without a monthly service charge, until an event occurs that requires them to activate service.
The Smart Tracker Plus addresses many concerns that the users of the Smart Tracker had. For those who leave generators, backhoes, tractors, skid steers, and other equipment outside on the job, the new, waterproof casing is a definite plus. It has the ability to handle heavy precipitation, harsh weather, and extreme temperature variances. In addition, the Smart Tracker Plus features a built-in, backup battery. This backup battery has a superior lifespan over other GPS trackers; it can last up to 3 weeks without charging. This is also a huge relief for those who need to recover their lost or stolen equipment, even if it is missing for a long period of time.
In the case of a missing or stolen item, owners can logon to Rocky Mountain Tracking's NavIQ web-based asset tracking software, activate their device, purchase locates, and promptly locate the item. This device also features 23 geo-fences or "virtual perimeters" that customers can set on their GPS asset tracking device. In addition, the Smart Tracker Plus has an additional, optional component that can interrupt starter of a vehicle or machine. These are all important benefits for those that do not need to track their equipment on a daily or even weekly basis, but need vigilant protection in case of an emergency.
As the leader of GPS tracking devices, Rocky Mountain Tracking has helped thousands of customers find lost and stolen equipment and vehicles. To find out how you can protect your investments in the case of unforeseen circumstances, learn more about our products, or contact a customer representative, please visit the RMT website: http://www.rmtracking.com or call 888-242-0500.
Fort Collins, CO March 12, 2008 -- RM Tracking has released a Spanish language version of its proprietary NavIQ, a market-leading GPS tracking software.
"Launching a Spanish NavIQ is part of our perennial campaign to bring the immense benefits of GPS tracking to more and more customers," says Brad Borst of RM Tracking.

The reports highlight weekend and after-hours usage, identify drivers who are routinely exceeding set speed limits, and identify excessive idling.
NavIQ's interactive mapping solution generates fast maps, custom map data, and global coverage. With support for over 56 countries in Europe, the Middle East, North and South America, NavIQ is truly a global solution.
"We already have a large number of customers benefiting from our tracking in Mexico," says Borst. "We anticipate a large increase in the number of customers we support in Mexico with the release of our NavIQ GPS tracking software in the Spanish language.

RM Tracking's reliable RMT Rover GPS tracking device helped track down a mentally disturbed woman as she drove across Maryland, keeping her out of harm's way and possibly saving her life.
Fort Collins, CO March 3, 2008 -- RM Tracking's reliable RMT Rover GPS tracking device helped track down a mentally disturbed woman as she drove across Maryland, keeping her out of harm's way and possibly saving her life.
"When it comes to sensitive family matters, GPS tracking can assist in many ways," says Brad Borst of RM Tracking. "In this instance, having the device installed in the car meant that one man still has his wife and a son has not lost his mother."
RM Tracking's customer had installed the RMT Rover device on his mother's vehicle, being worried about her, as she had been suicidal for some time. When she went missing, he phoned Cory Cowger, a Level I Tech Support supervisor, to help track down her vehicle.
Cowger began tracking the woman's vehicle from NavIQ, the web-based GPS tracking software, giving live position updates to the family and the Maryland State Police. "For about an hour, we watched her travel across Maryland," says Cowger. The GPS system led the Maryland State Police to her and got her pulled over before she could harm herself. The woman's husband "started crying and couldn't thank me enough for how our tracking system and my diligence saved his wife's life," says Cowger.
"I credit Rocky Mountain Tracking's GPS system and excellent customer service to saving my wife's life," said a grateful husband. "This has been one emotional year, and I feel confident that if I did not have this GPS system, my wife would not be alive today."

Press Release Summary: The device was used to track the teenager’s speed, and will be used to fight a ticket that cited the teen traveling at almost 20 mph over the speed limit.
Press Release Body: Fort Collin, CO October 31, 2007—17 year old Shaun Malone was recently given a speeding ticket by a police officer whose radar gun determined his speed to be 62 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone. Usually, tickets like these are simply paid by the motorist, but this case (Citation and Court case # PET416346; Superior Court of California County of Sonoma Traffic Division) is different: the teenager had an RMT Rover tracking device from Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. installed in his car by his step-father and retired sheriff’s lieutenant, Roger Rude. The data gathered by the global positioning device shows that the vehicle was traveling at a drastically different speed than that reported by the police officer. Rude contends that Shaun was driving at the posted speed limit of 45 MPH as recorded by the GPS and some sort of error occurred with the radar enforcement process. The police officer may have pulled his step-son over in lieu of another nearby vehicle that was traveling at the clocked speed of 62 miles per hour. Rude believes that whatever went wrong with the radar process is not as important as the fact revealed by the GPS RMT Rover tracking device that Shaun was travelling at 45 MPH, not the 62 MPH the police officer noted on the citation. This should be sufficient evidence to establish “reasonable doubt” in this case.
The tracking device includes software that determines both the location and the speed of the vehicle, and in this particular case shows that the teen was traveling at the speed limit within 100 feet from the location where he was cited for speeding. The GPS tracking device installed by Rude was intended to monitor the speed of the teenager and decrease his risk of being in an accident caused by unsafe driving habits; however, neither Rude nor his step-son ever expected that it could provide pivotal evidence in his favor, proving that he was, in fact, driving at a safe speed.
Rude and his step-son plan to use the software’s speed log to argue that the police officer’s radar gun inaccurately read the speed of Shaun’s car, or more likely that the officer had tracked the speed of a different vehicle. Their case will hinge on the fact that the GPS data has no room for human error, whereas radar guns operated by police officers do. The fact is that even police officers with the best intentions can sometimes rely upon inaccurate data when writing tickets. Thanks to RM Tracking, motorists can now have the hard, statistical evidence they need to ensure that the outcome of the case is determined by indisputable facts rather than becoming a case of their word versus the radar gun’s reading. The judge will make a ruling in this case sometime in November.

Fort Collins, CO - May 18, 2006
Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. (RMT) announced today that businesses are saving thousands of dollars per month with GPS vehicle tracking devices.
"Businesses have reported a reduction in fuel usage as the biggest advantage of GPS tracking," said Brad Borst, Founder and President of RMT. Monitoring and reducing speeds, routes, and idle time are just a few things that fleet owners can do to lower the fuel bill. Each mile per hour above 50 MPH increases fuel consumption by 1 ½ percent. Higher speeds also cause more tire heat, which puts more wear on tires. Wear on tires will almost double at road speeds of 70 MPH or greater. RMT's GPS tracking systems report all vehicle activity and immediately alerts fleet managers by cell phone and email of speeding and unauthorized use of company vehicles.
Business owners are most concerned with fuel & maintenance, employee overtime, and employee productivity. RMT provides a real time GPS vehicle tracking solution that is significantly reducing excess costs for businesses:
1. Fuel & Maintenance - The average operating cost per vehicle is about $1.50 per mile. A company can reduce at least 25 miles per week for each vehicle with a GPS tracking device.
2. Employee Overtime - The employee overtime rate is estimated at about $30 per hour. On average, a company can reduce at least 1 hour of overtime per week with a GPS fleet tracking system.
3. Employee Productivity - On average, each vehicle could complete at lease 1 extra stop, job, or delivery per week with a live GPS tracking unit.
For an average size fleet of 10 vehicles, this means an estimated monthly savings of over $6000 with RMT's GPS tracking solution.
RMT is now testing a new Mileage (odometer) tracking feature for the Discovery LITE GPS fleet tracking system. The mileage tracking will allow fleet managers to observe vehicle performance and maintenance from the convenience of their computer. RMT expects to offer the mileage tracking to its thousands of customers by the end of the month.

TeenDriverInsurance.com recognized RM Tracking and the GPS tracking solution the company provides as a major component in keeping teen drivers safe on the road.
Fort Collins, CO April 2, 2008 -- TeenDriverInsurance.com has announced RM Tracking, a provider of GPS tracking systems, as a Preferred Vendor, and in return RM Tracking is offering TeenDriverInsurance.com customers a generous discount on their teen tracking devices. RM Tracking is the recipient of this honor because of the positive impact the provider's products can have on teen driver safety, and this partnering through the Teen Safety Program is expected to save many young drivers' lives. Due to the increased accountability a tracking system places on teens, young drivers are less likely to drive recklessly, speed excessively, and engage in other risky behaviors on the road, which greatly decreases the risk of being in an accident. In fact, many states offer lower insurance rates to teen drivers who have a GPS vehicle tracking system installed because of the reduced risk of accidents that can cause costly damage and serious injuries.
The leading cause of death among teens is auto accidents, claiming approximately 6,000 young lives a year. This is attributed to teen drivers' inexperience and immaturity, leading to risk-taking and dangerous behavior, including speeding. Passengers in the car provide distractions from the road as well, and young drivers' inexperience in dealing with these situations as well as peer pressure to take risks often cause accidents. However, teens tend to make better decisions when under the supervision of a parent or, when that's not possible, while being monitored by a GPS teen tracking device that displays their driving habits to their parents.
Teen Driver Insurance is a web portal where parents can find a local insurance agent that is specifically trained and dedicated to helping parents make their teens safer drivers and protecting their assets. One way in which they protect these families is by encouraging them to take a number of precautions that can limit risk, one of which is installing a GPS tracking device from RM Tracking. Clients who implement safety devices such as a tracking device to monitor their teens' driving habits can receive substantial discounts on auto insurance, which can be elevated greatly when there's a teen driver in the home. RM Tracking's high quality RMT Rover Teen Tracker operates flawlessly with RM Tracking's state-of-the-art NavIQ software that tracks the device's location in real-time and monitors speed, seat belt usage, and much more. It is because of RM Tracking's Teen Safety Program and their first-rate software that TeenDriverInsurance.com chose the company as a Preferred Vendor. TeenDriverInsurance.com clients can now visit RMTracking.com to receive substantial discounts on a Rover or other GPS tracking system.

Fort Collins, CO April 16, 2008 -- Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc (RMTracking) has developed a new solution for pet tracking. The company has now released the PT-200 with a new canvas case specifically designed to be attached to an animal collar. The PT-200 uses the company's NavIQ web-based software to provide real-time GPS pet tracking. The PT-200 is one of the smallest portable tracking devices.
Statistics show there are approximately 273 million pets in this country, with 10 million of them ending up lost or in shelters each year. When an animal goes missing, it can be very difficult to find. Animals are often disoriented and frightened and can't find their way home. The PT-200 uses RMTracking's high-powered, full-featured NavIQ software to reliably report your pet's whereabouts at all times, so there's no need to worry if your dog or cat gets out of your backyard. NavIQ reports a pet's location in real time, proving far more effective at recovering lost animals than putting up posters or canvassing the area to bring a beloved pet home again. Multiple PT-200 GPS tracking devices can be managed from one tracking account.
The PT-200 GPS tracker utilizes CDMA technology to provide reliable tracking in all environments, whether indoor, outdoor, in kennels, or in remote areas without requiring the use of an obtrusive antenna. It simply slips inside the custom canvas pouch and attaches to your dog's collar. The PT-200 weighs only 4.6 ounces and its compact size is only 3.31 x 1.75 x 1.0. It is small enough that a pet may not even notice it is there, tracking his/her every move. The PT-200's rechargeable battery will last up to 21 days without being recharged. The accuracy of the device is within about 3 to 16 feet.
Rocky Mountain Tracking is proud to offer the pet tracking application to its product line. Brad Borst, President of Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc said, "Our goal with the PT-200 is to provide pet owners with peace of mind to ensure the safety of all animals. Microchips are being implanted in animals, but the microchips are only used to identify the animal. Microchips are not GPS locating devices, said Borst." The PT-200 is most common for dog tracking, but it can be used to track small and large animals of all sizes.
Rocky Mountain Tracking is a GPS tracking software developer and provider of world class GPS tracking solutions for all tracking applications. Each device is powerful and uses highly advanced tracking software to provide accurate and easy-to-read tracking data. The company's products can be used to increase safety on the road, monitor shipments, track pets for their safety, recover stolen vehicles, supervise a person's movements, and much more. For more information about RMTracking's pet tracking device and software, visit RMTracking.com.
Albany -- A state appeals court says police don't need a warrant before placing GPS tracking devices on the vehicles of potential suspects.
In a 4-1 ruling, the Appellate Division of state Supreme Court declared it constitutional to place the devices on vehicles as long as they're in public view.
The court upheld the conviction of Scott Weaver of Watervliet, who was found guilty of a 2005 burglary and grand larceny.
Weaver argued that police violated his constitutional rights by placing a battery-operated GPS device on his vehicle's bumper without his knowledge. He argued the evidence from the device shouldn't have been admissible in his trial.
The court said it would have been inadmissible only if the device was inside the vehicle or hidden somewhere on the car.

Fort Collins, CO June 24, 2008 -- In an era of skyrocketing oil prices, a company's wisest investment for its fleet is a GPS tracking device, which can save thousands in fuel costs.
"When oil is hitting $140 a barrel and people are predicting prices as high as $200, it can be comforting to know that your vehicles are saving every drop of fuel possible," says Brad Borst of Rocky Mountain Tracking (RMT). "With RMT's numerous GPS tracking features, you can look forward to thousands of dollars in fuel savings every month."
The features of RMT's NavIQ GPS tracker software can, among other abilities, monitor vehicle speed. Every mile per hour increase above the optimum vehicle speed of 50 mph, results in increased fuel consumption by 1.5 percent. Users can also monitor idle time; half an hour of idle time dissipates an entire gallon of precious gasoline.
Most importantly, companies can track routing, ensuring that their vehicles are taking the shortest route between two points. NavIQ, RMT's flagship product, allows users to enter a destination address, find the closest vehicle to that address, and view a detailed map and text routes, with an option to search by fastest route and shortest route.
In addition, companies with employee take-home vehicles can cut down on unauthorized use, with NavIQ-generated graphs and reports of the dates, times and locations of all vehicle use.
"For an average fleet of 10 vehicles, companies are saving as much as $8,000 per month with GPS tracking devices," says Borst. "In an economy like todays, every dollar counts, and fuel savings can give your company a genuine edge over the competition."

Fort Collins, CO July 15, 2008 -- If it hadn't been for the wonder of GPS technology, Stephen Stough would have had to hunt much more feverishly for a stolen BMW.
"Without the GPS tracking device, it would have been impossible to find the vehicle given the proximity to where it was taken from," says Stough, giving credit to RM Tracking's GPS device rather than his own investigation skills.
Stough International, a private investigative firm, was called in to recover the $16,000 BMW 740 I Sporty Sedan, which was bought fraudulently using another person's bank account information. The buyer defaulted on the payments and drove the BMW 600 miles away to Atlanta.
Payment defaults being a civil offense, Stough, as a private investigator, was asked to recover the BMW. This proved to be a cinch, with RM Tracking's powerful GPS capabilities.
Traveling to Atlanta to track down the car, Stough called upon the assistance of Cory Cowger, a technical support supervisor at RM Tracking. Cowger gave Stough live positions of the vehicle from the web-based tracking software, such as, location of the vehicle, direction of travel, and speeds. As soon as the vehicle came to a stop, Stough was able to recover the car without incident and return it to its owner.
"There were about 1.5 million auto repossessions last year, up by at least 10 per cent from 2006. But repossession is not always easy when vehicle owners move or leave the state," says Brad Borst of RM Tracking. "Unlike the 20-year-old technology that is still on the market, RM Tracking's GPS tracking solution offers advanced technology with live web-based tracking - every auto recovery agent's true friend."
Fort Collins, CO July 17, 2008 -- Eighteen-year-old Shaun Malone has a few people to thank for being able to plead "Not Guilty" to a speeding offence - his parents, who installed a GPS device in his car, and Rocky Mountain Tracking, the service provider of that device.
"Because of our GPS tracking data, Malone and his parents can protest the imposition of an unfair speeding ticket," says Brad Borst, Founder and President of Rocky Mountain Tracking, and who is also a former Police Officer.
A police radar had found Malone driving at 62 mph in a 45-mph zone. However, Malone's parents, who had installed the Rocky Mountain Tracking GPS device in his car to monitor his driving, found that the device tracked him driving at, and not above, the speed limit.
The most telling testament to the accuracy of the Rocky Mountain Tracking Rover GPS tracking device came, ironically, from a GPS expert who originally helped find Malone guilty in a trial-by-affidavit. Dr. Stephen Heppe, the expert, had written a report affirming that, going by the GPS data, Malone had to have been traveling faster than 45 mph.
The GPS device sends out a signal every 30 seconds, as well as an email alert whenever the driver exceeds the speed of 70 mph.
However, when he took the stand to begin his testimony, Dr. Heppe corrected that written report, saying that the Rocky Mountain Tracking device was "very" accurate, to within a couple of meters on location and to within 1 mph on speed. Dr. Heppe also pointed out that the GPS device released instantaneous data, and not data averaged over a distance.
"This case has caught the attention of the nation, and it will set a precedent on how police departments use speed traps in the face of an increased GPS presence," says Borst. "The accuracy and reliability of GPS has helped bring this important issue into the limelight."
In an era of spiraling fuel prices and pinched wallets, a GPS vehicle tracking device can help companies and fleet-owners squeeze every drop of value from their liquid gold.
Fort Collins, CO August 12, 2008 -- In an era of spiraling fuel prices and pinched wallets, a GPS vehicle tracking device can help companies and fleet-owners squeeze every drop of value from their liquid gold.
"A number of fuel-saving measures involve using a vehicle efficiently and wisely," says Brad Borst of Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. "With a GPS tracking device, companies can ensure and enforce efficiency and wisdom of use with their vehicles."
Borst suggests five ways to reduce fuel consumption. The first is to drive slower. Studies have shown that fuel economy drops by 17.1 percent as speeds increase from 50 mph to 70 mph. Every 5 mph of additional speed over 60 mph costs drivers "an additional 30 cents per gallon in fuel costs," says Sen. John Warner of Virginia.
Vehicles should also idle less, since 15 minutes of idle time uses half a gallon of gasoline, and even 30 seconds of idle time uses more fuel than turning off and then turning on the engine. Additionally, a vehicle with clean air filters and fully inflated tires uses up less fuel.
Companies also benefit by planning direct routes and by avoiding road construction issues that cause delays. Finally, shopping around for the lowest gas prices can save by as much as 60 cents per gallon. Web sites, such as, Mapquest provide a convenient way to map out the lowest gas prices.
"Companies using GPS tracking devices can tackle every one of these issues - knowing when and how fast vehicles are speeding, how long they're idling, which vehicle was fueled where, and what route they should take to save time and fuel," says Borst. "This simple investment can pay significant dividends and improve bottom lines."
Fort Collins, CO September 17, 2008 -- A unique use of Rocky Mountain Tracking's Rover GPS device helped Gene combat his girlfriend's drug addiction.
"Gene is a perfect example of people who can put our GPS devices to innovative uses even in their private lives, to solve a particular problem," says Brad Borst of Rocky Mountain Tracking. "Rocky Mountain Tracking's numerous GPS tracking features enable precisely this kind of flexibility and innovation."
Gene bought the Rocky Mountain Tracking device (available online at http://www.RMTracking.com) over the phone from Jeff Tomlinson, a sales manager. Once installed in her car, the live Rover device allowed Gene to see, on his computer, every detail of his girlfriend's travel: location, direction, speed, and tracking history. It also created a geo fence, which showed when she went outside a specified area.
Thus, when she left home to buy drugs, Gene would be able to follow her and show up at the location. "I would show up and nobody knew how," he says. "You can't imagine all the things she said to me when I told her - but of course, that was the addiction talking, not the person."
After a while, Gene adds, the people selling the drugs wouldn't even have anything to do with his girlfriend because they knew he would be following right behind her.
"The bottom line was that I needed something to help me, and the Rover device did for me exactly what I needed," says Gene. "The tracking device helped me help her, so that she could finally do what she had to, to save her own life."
Fort Collins, CO - October 7, 2008: From testimonies at the speeding trial of 18-year-old Shaun Malone in Sonoma County, Calif., it emerged that Rocky Mountain Tracking's GPS device may have helped uncover an illegal speed trap.
Malone had been charged with driving at 62 mph in a 45-mph zone, but Roger Rude, who had installed the Rocky Mountain Tracking GPS in his car to monitor his driving, found he had been driving at, and not above, the speed limit. The device reports speed, location, date and time at set intervals. A history report from the device has left a trail of evidence to back Malone.
Rude, a retired sheriff's lieutenant of 32 years, bought the RMT Rover GPS vehicle tracking device to encourage his step-son to drive safely. The device which Malone once thought to be his enemy has now come to his defense.
The officer testified on the stand that he believed the GPS was accurate. He also admitted that the radar reading indicated on his radar gun could have been caused by something else other than Shaun's car.
The GPS had already been validated for accuracy from an expert. Dr. Stephen Heppe said on the stand that the Rocky Mountain Tracking's device was "very accurate," and that it released instantaneous, as opposed to averaged, data.
Averaged data seems to be more the problem with the stretch of highway that Malone's attorney called an illegal speed trap. Andy Martinez said that the state's study of driving speeds illogically averaged the speeds on two different sections to come up with the speed limit. Setting the speed limit below the average speed of most motorists on a specific stretch amounts to an illegal speed trap. This could invalidate hundreds of speeding tickets issued in the same area, including Malone's.
The court has not yet made a final ruling, and may not make one until December.

Fort Collins, CO – October 9, 2008: In a span of just five years, Rocky Mountain Tracking has grown to dominate the GPS vehicle tracking field, with its sleek NavIQ software and a range of tracking applications.
“We attribute our success to our core values, dedicated employees, the commitment we have to our customers to provide them with ONLY the best product and service,” says Brad Borst, Founder and President of Rocky Mountain Tracking. “With us, you don’t just get what you pay for – you get more because we sacrifice profit margins for quality, which is why our customers keep coming back and allow us to serve them.”
The company started with nothing five years ago on October 1, 2003, and has grown to a customer base of more than 10,000, including local, state and federal government agencies; large and small businesses of all types and individuals. Our tracking solution has been given credit for saving millions of dollars with management of vehicles, employees, and other valuable assets.
Each year, Rocky Mountain Tracking has exceeded its previous revenue statement and continues to grow at a steady rate. Its proprietary, state-of-the-art GPS tracking software, called NavIQ, integrates only the top 2 per cent of GPS devices from all over the world. Rocky Mountain Tracking offers around 10 different tracking devices, bundled with software and services to fit a number of different applications.
“At Rocky Mountain Tracking, we have been praised for exceeding the expectations of our customers,” says Tara Borst, Co-Founder of the company. “But this is only the start of what we believe will become the most innovative solution in the industry.”
Fort Collins, CO and Covington, LA - October 30, 2008 -- Rocky Mountain Tracking's flagship NavIQ software has now been integrated with the RMT WatchDog, a satellite GPS tracking system manufactured by Axonn, LLC.
"We are very excited about the release of the RMT WatchDog on NavIQ, which is raising the bar for web-based vehicle and asset tracking systems across the world.," says Brad Borst, President of Rocky Mountain Tracking. "With the RMT WatchDog, a satellite tracking system, our users can track from any computer with an Internet connection. Supported in over 56 countries in Europe, the Middle East, North and South America, NavIQ is now a truly global tracking solution."
The RMT WatchDog combines GPS and RF technologies with the capabilities of the Globalstar Simplex satellite, providing seamless coverage that is unavailable with GSM and CDMA devices. An innovatively designed battery - which lasts seven years - delivers a long-service, "place-and-play" solution.
"We see Rocky Mountain Tracking as an ideal partner for Axonn," says Chad Holsinger, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Axonn. "We have a real synergy with their services and our asset management hardware; together we create a best of class asset management system."
By placing the RMT WatchDog on any trailer, container, tool or other equipment, owners can track their assets across the world in real time from the comfort of their own office. It is a purely one-way form of communication, replacing more costly and power-hungry two-way devices where needed. It excludes the need for installation with a wiring harness, antenna, or external power, making installation easy and efficient.
The addition of the RMT WatchDog satellite GPS tracking device makes NavIQ even more powerful, providing its users with a range of full-color, interactive maps and dynamic reports and graphs, to better understand the movement of an asset. The NavIQ web client monitors and records live updates and alerts from the field, and RMT WatchDog's vast geographic satellite reach comes as a strong advantage.
This comes as a boon for equipment and trailer owners, who face serious risk of loss when equipment and trailers are in use at a job site. In 2005, a survey showed that around 72 per cent of equipment owners faced some sort of theft - a startlingly high statistic. Just as dishearteningly, less than 15 per cent of stolen equipment is ever recovered, and theft has increased by 20 per cent since 1996. Recently, another survey pegged the cost of heavy equipment losses at $1 billion every year.
"All these assets can be protected and tracked down with the RMT WatchDog for as little as $0.25 per day," says Borst. "It's a classic case of making sure you don't step over a dollar to save a dime." For more information, visit http://www.RMTracking.com.
Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) December 10, 2008 -- With the help of a Rocky Mountain Tracking GPS tracking system, Jerry Burns has saved the life of his wife Laura, who has been beset with mental health issues for years now, four times since last September.
"All behavioral health facilities should know about the advantages of Rocky Mountain Tracking's products and services," says Burns. "We could save so many lives with their services and products."
When Burns came home from work, he discovered that Laura and her car were missing. Calling Laura's cell phone proved to be a dead end, because it was turned off. The car, though, was equipped with a Rocky Mountain Tracking Rover GPS tracking system, which allowed Burns to go online and track the location of the vehicle.
Since he was not near a computer, Burns contacted Rocky Mountain Tracking to help assist him in locating his wife's car. Within seconds, Rocky Mountain Tracking's support team located the car through NavIQ, its online GPS tracking system software.
Burns then contacted the police and told them he believed his wife was trying to commit suicide, directing them to the car at the city park. The police responded immediately and found Laura's car; she had parked her vehicle and was about to swallow eight bottles of pills in an attempt to take her own life when police found her.
"It was our information that helped Burns get a police dispatch which protected the lady from endangering herself," says Josh Chittenden, the Rocky Mountain Tracking technical support executive who took Burns' call. "He was very thankful for our services and said we had been there to help them more than once in this situation. He said that we saved a life today."
Fort Collins, Colorado - January 29, 2009 - Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. (RMT) is releasing its newest tracking application for GPS-enabled cell phones. "Anyone with a Blackberry or Windows Mobile device can track their cell phone from any computer through web-based tracking software," says Brad Borst, President of the company. The technology used for this purpose is a full-featured, tracking software called NavIQ Mobile. Global in range, NavIQ Mobile allows the user to have access to a wide range of features. The tracking software is available in over 56 countries in Europe, the Middle East and the Americas.
With the introduction of the NavIQ Mobile technology, the safety and security benefits to the individual user are significant.

Enhanced 911 or E911 mandates that all new cell phones support location identification technology. When you dial 911 from your cell phone, for example, the public safety answering point or PSAP, can pinpoint your exact location within a few meters.
The launch of NavIQ Mobile now offers a more advanced technology which provides more information, such as, address, speed, heading, longitude, latitude, date, time, and a history of everywhere it has been. RMT's state of the art NavIQ Mobile software application provides live tracking, fast maps, custom map data, and full color graphics. NavIQ Mobile also boasts such comprehensive tools as animated pans, 3D perspective zooms, and fly-over routing. Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. is undoubtedly the leader in GPS tracking applications, offering all of these features in a way that is truly unsurpassed in the tracking industry.
Obviously, the ramifications for both business and personal use are enormous given the wide ranging scope of this newest level of technology. GPS-enabled cell phones allow business owners to not only keep a watchful eye over their employees, but also to track their entire fleet of vehicles used by their mobile workforce. The personal safety advantages of cell phone tracking are just as impressive. Cell phones have become an essential part of the everyday routine and they are a vital tool that could actually save your life. Parents will also find this technology as an added bonus when it comes to keeping tabs on their teens in a non obtrusive, yet convenient way.
A primary advantage with the roll-out of NavIQ Mobile is the elimination of purchasing additional tracking hardware. Even if you do not currently have one of RMT's other GPS tracking devices, NavIQ Mobile offers tracking of your existing cell phone as an attractive and affordable option.
Installation of NavIQ Mobile to a cell phone takes only a few minutes. For more information or to install NavIQ Mobile to your cell phone, visit: http://www.rmtracking.com/gpsproducts/navIQmobile.html or call their offices toll free at (888) 242-0500.

Borst goes on to say, "In these tough economic times, it is absolutely essential to have access to a device that allows you to locate a stolen vehicle swiftly and competently, with the minimum amount of hassle for all parties involved." The Smart Tracker is both discreet and cost effective, making it the perfect defense against vehicle forfeiture.
One of the most innovative aspects of the Smart Tracker is that it has an operating voltage of 6-32 VDC or continuous direct current. Vehicles most commonly targeted for theft such as ATVs, snowmobiles, and tractors -- which were previously unable to use GPS devices which ran on more than 6 VDCs -- can now be easily safeguarded. The Smart Tracker utilizes the NavIQ tracking software, which is global in range, and available in over 56 countries in Europe, the Middle East and the Americas. NavIQ allows an unlimited number of assets to be tracked from one account simultaneously. This cutting edge software offers an array of detailed reports, maps, graphs and charts.
The Smart Tracker also offers 32 geo-fences or "virtual perimeters" for a specific geographic region or area. Additionally, the Smart Tracker will allow the end user to track "on-demand." This novel approach to tracking allows commercial users, such as car dealers, to now have the option to activate and locate certain devices as needed, in order to locate and/or recover a particular vehicle. For example, a dealer may choose to deactivate the vehicle's starter from the convenience of their computer until further payment is made, at which time the starter can then be engaged, allowing the vehicle to once again be used.
The Smart Tracker successfully combines both affordability and device intelligence, along with the users' specific application requirements. Coupled with superior GPS performance and reliability that Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. is noted for, the Smart Tracker is the ideal solution for all your GPS tracking device needs.

Fort Collins, Colorado - March 11, 2010 - Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. is again making headlines for its unique ability to successfully remain ahead of the curve in the consistently evolving world of GPS vehicle recovery technology.
Andrew Wallace of Fontana, California can attest to the lightening-speed accuracy and acutely precise GPS tracking technology of the Smart Tracker first hand; he successfully used it to recover his pick up truck earlier this month after it had been stolen from his place of business. Mr. Wallace gives full credit to the Smart Tracker for this recovery. The Smart Tracker device enables the user access to on-demand, live tracking from any personal computer with no annual or monthly service fee commitments. Combined with the use of Rocky Mountain Tracking's web-based software, NavIQ, the user can expect highly accurate readings and 'real time' location tracking; all allowing for quicker procurement of the stolen vehicle.
Fontana, California has one of the highest auto theft crime rates in the nation, with an average of 811 vehicles per every 100,000 registered, stolen each year in the years surveyed from 2000-2008. In comparison, the national average for the same eight year time frame was 320 vehicles per every 100,000 registered vehicles. For this reason, Mr. Wallace was quick to install the Smart Tracker device on his truck. Within minutes of Mr. Wallace becoming aware of his truck having been stolen, he was able to locate its whereabouts on his personal computer. The Smart Tracker uses state of the art, on-demand live tracking technology that configures an 'auto report' interval, allowing for the vehicle's exact location to be displayed in rich detail, thanks to our NavIQ online tracking software.
Mr. Wallace tracked his vehicle to a personal residence, where he saw the GPS generated image of his truck in the driveway, downloaded the address, and then alerted the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department to the vehicle's exact whereabouts. Mr. Wallace's vehicle was subsequently recovered, without further incident, within 6 hours of the initial theft. The individuals responsible for the theft are in the process of being prosecuted for the crime. Like most people who depend on their vehicle for their livelihood, Mr. Wallace is eager to get the word out about how the Smart Tracker alleviated what could have been a dire situation. Thanks to Smart Tracker, his truck was quickly recovered, and without damage. Mr. Wallace has just purchased two more Smart Tracker devices for his family's other vehicles, and he says that he will never purchase another vehicle without placing a Smart Tracker device inside it.
According to the FBI 2004 Uniform Crime Report, only 63% of stolen vehicles were ever recovered. It is important to realize that auto theft will happen, and accurate information leading to fast recovery is the only solution to protecting your assets. Rocky Mountain Tracking's Smart Tracker device is your assurance that in the unfortunate event of your vehicle being stolen, location and recovery will be a snap. There are no monthly fees associated with the Smart Tracker; simply activate the device when your vehicle is stolen.

MONROE, Mich., May 14, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ ----Rocky Mountain Tracking located a stolen golf cart equipped with a Smart Tracker GPS tracking device, while also leading police to a Michigan grow-op.
On the morning of May 12, 2010, a 2008 Club Car golf cart was stolen from Dale Brunt's business in Monroe, Michigan. The cart in-question was equipped with a Smart Tracker GPS tracking device that had been previously purchased from Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. Upon noticing that the cart was missing, Brunt immediately contacted Rocky Mountain Tracking.
Using the Smart Tracker's location software, Rocky Mountain Tracking technical support expert, Travis Torgerson, was able to locate the stolen cart. After locating the cart, Brunt immediately alerted law enforcement authorities. Police tracked the stolen golf cart to a Michigan residence where the cart was discovered -- along with a marijuana grow-op, and other stolen items, said Brunt.
Rocky Mountain Tracking President, Brad Borst, told press that, "Mr. Brunt's proactive decision to install the Smart Tracker on his golf carts is not only rewarding; his action has apparently solved a serious crime spree." Brunt's decision to purchase 30 Smart Trackers for his golf cart fleet was spawned by three previous thefts.
After researching GPS tracker devices online, Brunt discovered that the Smart Tracker had an on-demand option, which would allow him to equip his entire golf cart fleet with GPS tracking devices without paying a hefty monthly fee. He also liked the idea that the Smart Tracker has a "geo-fence" option.
Even though Brunt did not activate the geo-fence option at the time that his cart was stolen, all of Brunt's carts have now been geo-fenced. With this technology in place, Brunt will be alerted via text if any of his carts are stolen in the future.
Brunt believes that the Smart Tracker was the "perfect way to solve (his) problem." The Smart Tracker "worked way beyond (his) expectations." As for the grow-op that the Smart Tracker led police to, authorities are still working on the investigation.

Katy, Texas - May 20, 2010 - A truck thief in Katy, Texas, got a cool wake-up call when he discovered that the Ford F150 he stole from Airtronics Air Conditioning and Heating was equipped with a GPS tracker.
On the Friday, May 7th, a Ford F150 truck was stolen from Airtronics Air Conditioning and Heating in Katy, Texas. When employees at Airtronics realized that one of their trucks had been stolen, they went directly to their computer screens.
Prior to the car theft, Airtronics equipped all of their vehicles with Informer GPS vehicle tracking devices from Rocky Mountain Tracking. Using Rocky Mountain Tracking's NavIQ software, Airtronics employees were able to track the stolen vehicle to a gas station in Houston, Texas.
As Airtronics employees followed the truck by car, another Airtronics employee gave explicit directions by tracking the truck with NavIQ. While the truck was stationary, authorities were able to locate the truck, and apprehend the vehicle thief. When the police showed up on the scene, "it was a huge surprise to the joy rider who had no clue there was a GPS device in the company truck" an Airtronics representative told press. As soon as police had arrested the culprit, the Airtronics vehicle was brought back to Airtronics headquarters.
Rocky Mountain Tracking President, Brad Borst, stated that "Airtronics Air Conditioning and Heating is the real winner in this for their proactive approach to GPS tracking technology." According to Borst, "GPS not only provides asset protection; it helps maintain consumer confidence and provides a competitive advantage." The vehicle in-question may not have been recovered if the owners of Airtronics had not decided to equip their Ford F150 (valued at $20,000) with the Informer GPS tracking system.

October 7, 2010, Delmar, Delaware – Rocky Mountain Tracking experts track a stolen Freightliner Classic equipped with a GPS tracking device to a Baltimore, Maryland, location.
At 3:30 AM on October 6, a Freightliner Classic (valued at $70k) was stolen from Bob’s Garage in Delmar, Delaware. The truck, belonging to Rantz Trucking, had been equipped with a GPS tracking device previously purchased from Rocky Mountain Tracking. Around 8:00 AM on October 7, Rantz Trucking owner, KW Rantz, phoned Rocky Mountain Tracking to report the missing truck.
Using the Rocky Mountain Tracking’s unique tracking software, RMT specialist, Travis Torgerson, tracked the stolen truck to a location in Baltimore, Maryland. After notifying Rantz of the truck’s precise location, Rantz contacted authorities. Within moments, Delmar police were able to find the missing truck. The case (case number 0510052460) is currently under investigation by the Delmar police force.
Expensive big-rig trucks are ideal targets for thieves. These trucks are frequently stolen and re-sold for a bargain price, which is precisely what could have happened had Rantz not relied on GPS tracking technology. KW Rantz added GPS tracking devices to his fleet in order to protect his long-standing business – a decision that has now paid off.
For KW Rantz, Rocky Mountain Tracking’s software is not only a sound investment, but it’s also “great for keeping on top of freight movement including destination and arrival information.” Rantz also stated that the Rocky Mountain tracking team has been very “good to me” throughout this entire ordeal.

On the heels of the company’s “Free Tracking Key Giveaway” comes another contest for all Rocky Mountain Tracking Facebook fans: The Smart Tracker Giveaway. This time around, RMT is giving away one Smart Tracker GPS tracking system. The Smart Tracker (valued at $175) is primarily used to protect heavy equipment (skid steers, tractors, backhoes) and vehicles from theft.

By giving a Smart Tracker away to one Facebook fan, Borst hopes to showcase the device’s effectiveness.
There are more than 77,000 cases of heavy equipment theft throughout the United States each year. Usual recovery rate of stolen heavy equipment totals around 7%.

November 10, 2010, Fort Collins, Colorado – In a recent survey, Rocky Mountain Tracking discovered that long-time client, Ashland Towing, saves thousands monthly using RMT GPS tracking devices.
In an effort to further improve customer service, Rocky Mountain Tracking offered clients the chance to sound-off about RMT tracking technology. One long-time RMT client, Ashland Towing (located in Ashland, Virginia), reported saving $1500 to $2000 per month after equipping 10 vehicles with Rocky Mountain Tracking gps tracking devices.
Ashland Towing owner, Harry Field, also noted that the information provided by RMT’s tracking units allowed him to catch one employee driving 100 mph on a recent trip. As a result, Field believes that his drivers are “much more responsible about what they do.” Harry uses his GPS tracking devices to “keep speed down and safety up.”
Field also stated that his GPS tracking devices have effectively lowered insurance costs. Installing GPS tracking devices inside of trucks “…makes insurance companies want to have your business.” Vehicles that are equipped with GPS tracking devices are seen as less of a liability to insurance companies, which, in turn, lowers insurance rates.
Rocky Mountain Tracking's President, Brad Borst, stated "We were pleased to note that our technology has successfully saved Ashland Towing thousands of dollars per month...” Borst was also happy to find out that “RMT’s tracking devices can potentially save lives.” as was made evident by Field’s comments.

SHREVEPORT, La., Feb. 2, 2011 -- A Shreveport resident's Chevy Equinox was stolen at 5am on January 28. Thirty minutes later, the vehicle was pinpointed on a map with the help of a Smart Tracker GPS vehicle recovery device from Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc.
On the morning of January 28, 2011, Clayton Fullwood stepped outside of his home in order to start his 2007 Chevy Equinox (valued at $17k). Fullwood then stepped back inside of his home for five minutes. During those five minutes, a thief drove away with Fullwood's truck. Panicked, Fullwood phoned Rocky Hargiss of Track-it & Company, the car dealership where the Equinox was purchased.
As the truck thief would quickly learn, Fullwood's truck was equipped with a Rocky Mountain Tracking Smart Tracker GPS tracking device. Using his computer to access RMT's exclusive NavIQ software, Hargiss was able to spot the exact location of the Equinox and disable the vehicle's starter. After contacting the Caddo Sherriff's Department, the Equinox was recovered in minutes.
Hargiss began equipping vehicles with GPS tracking devices from Rocky Mountain Tracking in June of 2010. On January 28, 2011, Hargiss' decision to install GPS auto recovery devices was quickly rewarded.
Experienced thieves can steal a car in less than 40 seconds. Throughout the United States alone, a car is stolen every 26.4 seconds. When it comes to vehicle recovery, timing is everything. As Hargiss recently stated, "the entire vehicle recovery operation took thirty minutes to complete – that's unbeatable."

Fort Collins, Colorado April 27, 2011 - Rising fuel costs have some transportation companies nervous. Others are secure in the knowledge that Rocky Mountain Tracking’s GPS fleet tracking devices can effectively keep fuel costs down.
Many companies put faith in the reliability of drivers. Yet, thousands of fuel dollars go up in emissions daily. Recently, a Con Edison (a New York service company) spokesperson told press that company drivers don’t require constant monitoring, since these drivers are “…extremely responsible.”
This statement came after numerous citizens complained about the carelessness of Con Edison drivers who allowed trucks to idle while eating lunch, napping, and conducting other activities. Assuming that drivers won’t allow a truck to idle is a costly mistake.
A fleet of 200 trucks can burn up to $900 worth of fuel per hour spent idling.
Marcel Fauteux is the owner of Groupe Mapp International. Groupe Mapp transports dry and refrigerated goods across the U.S. and Canadian border. For more than five years, Groupe Mapp trucks have been equipped with GPS tracking systems.
Fauteux has found that his costs have “…dramatically decreased thanks to GPS tracking technology. Not only can I reroute trucks, cut idle time, and eliminate lengthy routes, but I can also keep a close watch on drivers.”
Unlike Con Edison, Groupe Mapp stays afloat by ensuring that fuel is wisely spent.
GPS tracking is also effective when it comes to smaller fleets. Ashland Towing, a towing company located in Ashland, Virginia, has saved thousands of dollars monthly by equipping all trucks with Rocky Mountain Tracking GPS tracking devices. Ashland Towing President, Harry Field, recently stated that GPS also allows him to keep “…speed down…” while also keeping Ashland Towing’s profits up.
At more than $4 per gallon of gasoline and $5 per gallon of diesel in some states, keeping fuel costs to a minimum is essential. Fluctuating fuel costs is an old problem, Rocky Mountain Tracking’s GPS Fleet tracking technology is the new solution.
As a trusted name within the GPS tracking industry, RMT has sold more than 50,000 GPS tracking devices to companies with fleets of all sizes. They have over 1700 GPS Installers in the United States.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Sept. 7, 2011 -- After falling behind on payments, the purchaser of a Nissan Maxima tried to hide the car from dealership owner, Conley Moret, by driving to another state. Moret was able to track the vehicle using a Smart Tracker GPS anti theft device purchased from Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc.
Conley Moret owns and operates a car dealership for people who have bad or no credit. As part of his sales agreement, all of Moret's vehicles are equipped with GPS tracking devices. Prior to August 28, 2011, Moret "didn't really believe in GPS tracking devices or believe it when other car dealers talked about the Smart Tracker device."
When Moret had no luck tracking down a 1995 Nissan Maxima that had not been paid off (valued at $3000), Moret thought that the device was not installed correctly. Even though he tracked the vehicle to a specific location, he could not locate the car when visiting that location.
In a desperate attempt, Moret decided to set a geo-fence for the vehicle. Sure enough, on August 28th, Moret was notified when the Maxima was driven outside of the set parameters. He was then able to track the car to San Diego where his delinquent customer stated, "I knew you would find me one day."
Moret told press that his client thought driving the Maxima to another state would prevent the Smart Tracker from locating the vehicle – a false assumption.
Though Moret had doubts, The Smart Tracker that he purchased from Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. "changed my business completely. "
The Smart Tracker GPS tracking device can be installed inside of any vehicle. This GPS anti theft device comes at no monthly cost and can be turned on or off as needed. As Conley Moret found out, "this device is brilliant!"
With more than 50,000 GPS tracking devices sold, Rocky Mountain Tracking, based in Fort Collins, Colorado, is the leader in GPS tracking and anti theft devices. For more information about RMT or the Smart Tracker, visit the Rocky Mountain Tracking website: www.rmtracking.com or call 888-242-0500.
Vallejo, Calif. November 14, 2011 -- A Rocky Mountain Tracking Smart Tracker led police to the location of a stolen $5000 industrial welder in addition to more than $20,000 worth of stolen goods.
On the morning of November 11, 2011, Jon Northrop (owner of Kristin Construction) discovered that his Lincoln 308G Ranger industrial welder was missing (valued at $5000). After contacting Rocky Mountain Tracking (Northrop was not near a computer at the time of the theft) to locate the stolen welder, RMT GPS tracking device specialists were able to track the welder to a residence in Vallejo, California.
Initially, Northrop contacted the local police department, but after several hours he decided to contact the Solano County Sheriff’s Department instead. This turned out to be a good move for Northrop as the sheriff’s department acted immediately. Solano County Sheriff’s Department case report number: CR 114869.
The Northrop sheriff deputies were unable to locate the welder at the initial Vallejo location as the thief was on the move. The GPS tracking device followed the stolen welder, via online tracking software, to a different location a few miles away where the welder was recovered on vacant property.
Not only were authorities able to recover and return the stolen welder, but a dump truck belonging to a different company (Blue Line Engineering) and valued at $20,000 was also uncovered. Returning to the first location, authorities were also able to uncover a number of other stolen goods including surveillance equipment, antiques, tools, and other items.
Northrop stated that he considered installing a LoJack on the welder instead of the RMT Smart Tracker, but decided the $175 Smart Tracker was worth the investment. Needless to say, Northrop’s investment strategy paid off. As Northrop later told press, he could hardly believe that a “$175 investment saved me thousands!”

LONG ISLAND CITY, NY -- Sep 27, 2012 - On September 24, 2012, Rocky Mountain Tracking used a car tracking device to recover a vehicle that was stolen from a New York Limousine company. The 2009 Chevrolet Suburban valued at $19,000 was stolen from Long Island City, N.Y. and was recovered shortly after in Inwood, N.Y. No damage to the vehicle was reported.
Minutes after the theft, the owner of the vehicle and Long Island City, N.Y.-based Limousine company who wishes to remain anonymous, noticed the vehicle was missing. Thankfully, the company had a vehicle tracking system in place.
He says, "I suspected that a theft may have occurred, but was not too concerned because the vehicle was equipped with a Smart Tracker GPS car tracking device. Mark at Rocky Mountain Tracking was very helpful and stayed on the phone with me for about 45 minutes so I could locate my Suburban."
The owner of the '09 Suburban checked Rocky Mountain Tracking's NavIQ asset and vehicle tracking system software and found his vehicle was located at 95th Ave. and 85th St. He reportedly went to this location and the vehicle was not there. After going as far as knocking on the door at that location, still no one could tell his where his Suburban was located.
The owner called Mark Hisley, RMT Lead Technician, and he told the owner that vehicle was moving. The vehicle came to a stop at Inwood, N.Y. and Mark disabled the starter remotely from NavIQ, effectively stopping the stolen vehicle in its tracks.
The Suburban owner responded to the scene of the stolen vehicle in Inwood and called the police. As he was waiting for the police to arrive, he observed the driver of the stolen vehicle outside under the hood removing the battery cables from the battery. The police responded and the vehicle was recovered.
After confronting the driver, the driver told police that he was not the person who stole the vehicle. He further explained that he took the vehicle from someone else due to an argument that occurred. Whether his excuse is true or not remains to be seen, as the owner of the stolen vehicle did not press charges on the suspect. The limousine company owner and staff were thrilled that the vehicle sustained no damages, and attributes the quick recovery without damages to the Smart Tracker GPS device. His advice to other companies is, "Always get a GPS tracking device for commercial vehicles; the $200 you spend on a GPS tracking device will save you a lot of money."

Fort Collins, Colorado (May 14, 2013) - Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc., located in Northern Colorado is sending its GPS tracking devices overseas to Zimbabwe, to help monitor anti-poaching patrols.
"I am always excited about reaching new markets, especially a new opportunity in Africa," said Tom Baranowski, RMT general manager. "We have seen GPS devices used in many unique ways, but this use, which ultimately helps protect endangered wildlife, is especially pleasing."
These GPS tracking devices will be used to effectively monitor game scouts and their movements at Howick Farms, a family-owned farming operation, specializing in soya beans, tobacco and game, located near the town of Rusape in Manicaland, Zimbabwe. The farmland reserved for animal use is quite remote and mountainous, which makes anti-poaching patrols most effective when conducted on foot.
The personal tracking devices are meant to locate patterns and to track game scouts as they move throughout these isolated areas. These devices will track where scouts travel and how often they are moving.
RMT has never participated in a partnership such as this, and is excited to see their tools being utilized in unexpected ways.
"The RMT team and I are thrilled to have played a role in seeing this project come to a successful conclusion," Baranowski said. "We expect to uncover additional unique uses for our GPS products in the future, but few will as gratifying as this one."
Poaching is a serious epidemic affecting Africa, especially South Africa and appears to be spreading to the neighboring country of Zimbabwe. According to Caroline Washaya-Moyo, spokeswoman for Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, last year Zimbabwe lost about three percent of its rhino population due to poachers (timeslive.co.za).
