Coban GPS306 description
Coban GPS306 is an OBDII tracker. It can be is easily installed into the car diagnostic port.
Location and tracking
GPS306 model is embedded with GPS and doesn’t have support of GLONASS and alternative systems. It either doesn’t support Assisted GPS (A-GPS) technology. As the back-up, when no satellites signals are available, it uses Cell ID location (also known as LBS-tracking).
There are only two basic tracking modes, which do not provide too much flexibility: by time interval and by distance.
Also, the tracker supports turnings. It will update the positions automatically to web server once the vehicle changing driving direction over pre set angle (30 degrees) to form a smooth trajectory consistent with the actual road, this function is only effective in GPRS mode.
GPS306 can read from OBDII port such data as vehicle speed, engine RPM, coolant temperature, board voltage as well as “Check engine” (MIL) and DTC error codes. Here is an example of how it looks in GPS tracking system:
With Quad-band GSM 2G module GPS306 can be operated all over the world.
GPS306 has a small SOS button. To send the SOS signal it’s required to hold the button pressed within 3 seconds.
GPS306 uses OBDII Connector Type B and voltage range 9-40V, which makes possible to install GPS306 both on cars and trucks.
GPS306 also features a built-in rechargeable backup battery. When fully charged it ensures about 1-2 hours of device operation (in normal conditions).
When being unplugged from the OBDII socket the device sends notification to server.
Local and remote management
GPS306 tracker can be fully controlled over GPRS, including configuration of tracking modes and controlling outputs. There is also a wide list of SMS commands in a human-friendly format, on which device always replies back. It supports remote APN settings configuration by SMS.
You can also configure GPS306 from a PC, but you will require a special serial cable, which is not included into a standard package. No special software is required: device is detected as a flash drive and all configuration can be done by editing a text file on it.
GPS306 has two LEDs
GPS306 features a micro SD slot, so you can install a micro SD card into it and store all data there. Later you can analyze it, using proprietary software.
Also GPS306 features a built-in microphone for acoustic surveillance.
GPS306 does not detect harsh driving behaviour and towing.
