AnyTrack today launched the GPS-100 (pictured at right) for both everyday users and businesses that want to track people or their vehicles. The card-sized box contains both a GPS receiver and a cellular transmitter; using CDMA cellphone networks, the device can relay its position indoors when interference would block normal mapping. Checking its whereabouts only requires a computer with secure Web access. Battery life is also long at up to three weeks on standby, AnyTrack says.
The GPS-100 itself is typically available for $229 but is currently being sold for $199. Its accompanying tracking service requires either $15 or $20 per month depending on how often the owner wants to check locations, with the basic Lite plan offering 15 checks per month and the premium Frequent plan offering 50.
