If You Are an Uber or Lyft Driver, This is Why You Need a T3

Are you an Uber or Lyft Driver, or have a loved one who is? If so, you are often on the road alone, many times late at night, and sometimes in remote areas, allowing people you have never met before into your vehicle.  There’s always a risk involved when picking up strangers, but a T3 can help keep you or your loved ones safe.

While it’s something nobody wants to think about, if you don’t make it home from your shift, your T3 emergency contacts can easily pinpoint exactly where your vehicle is located, or even track your whereabouts during your shift.  And in the case of a carjacking, the T3 gives you the ability to deactivate your ignition and send real-time info to the police.  The carjacker won’t get very far, and your vehicle will be recovered.

The 911Tracker T3 Vehicle Recovery System will also alert you instantly if there is unauthorized movement in your vehicle or a pre-installed vehicle alarm goes off. Within seconds you can connect to the 911 operator closest to your vehicle and share the GPS location, speed, and direction your vehicle is traveling. No call center is used – saving you time and money.  No other anti-theft system can do this!

There is no activation fee, no contract or cancellation fees, and you always get our 911Tracker 30 day Risk Free Guarantee. You can cancel your current plan and begin a new plan at any time. We also provide complete security and we never share your information with anyone.

TECH TIP: The T3 owner can add, change, or delete the phone numbers for their authorized emergency contacts at anytime.

 

A T3 for when Seconds Matter

Seconds matter, especially in an emergency situation when a life is on the line. A recent Wall Street Journal article discusses the difficulty 911 call centers have in pinpointing the location of a call to 911 coming from a cell phone, and the technology Google is testing out to improve the accuracy. “Federal regulators estimate shaving a minute off response times could save as many 10,000 lives each year.”

If you have the T3 call 911, the 911 operator will be able to see exactly where your car is located.  When the T3 user (either owner or their emergency contact) is talking to the 911 operator, either the T3 user or the 911 operator just presses 3 and the T3 speaks the pinpoint GPS location along with the speed and direction of the vehicle. Emergency responders can get to the exact location of the emergency and help save lives.

The T3 Vehicle Security System is different than any other anti-theft system. No call center is used, saving the T3 owner time and money. Not only can it be a lifesaver in an emergency situation, but the T3 will alert you if there is any unauthorized movement in your vehicle.

There is no activation fee, no contract or cancellation fees, and you always get our 911Tracker 30 day Risk Free Guarantee. You can cancel your current plan and begin a new plan at any time. We also provide complete security and we never share your information with anyone.

TECH TIP: When the T3 owner has contacted police about theft of their vehicle, the owner can send a secure message to the T3 to disable the vehicle starter and help police catch the thief.

Road Trip Resolutions

Did you make a new year’s resolution to take more road trips this year? Whether you are looking for warmer weather, scenic views, amusement parks or wildlife discovery, here are three to start with now:

The Big Bend: Named after a large bend in the Rio Grande River, this park is located in west Texas and borders Mexico, covering over 800,000acres. Winter is a good time to set up camp if you are not a fan of the brutally high temps that come with summer. The weather varies in winter though, while it can be mild, subfreezing temperatures can also occur – so be prepared! While you’re there take the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, the most interesting of the paved sightseeing routes in Big Bend National Park, “giving the greatest variety of habitats, geology and a variety of interesting short walks and interpretive pull overs,” according to visitbigbend.com Plan here: https://visitbigbend.com/category/bb-national-park/

The Florida Keys: Want to get away from the arctic chill? Just keep driving south onto the Overseas Highway. The trip should take close to four hours from Miami to Key West. Take in the beautiful views as you cross over the Seven Mile Bridge that connects the Middle Keys and Lower Keys, and if you want to get out of the car for a bit, take a walk along the Old Seven Mile Bridge, where there is plenty of wildlife to spot.  When you get to your destination, learn to sail, snorkel, and try some key lime pie. And if you’re a cat lover, you’ll want to visit the Hemingway House of Cats.  For ideas on where to stop along the way, visit: https://travel.usnews.com/features/the-ultimate-florida-keys-road-trip

Southern California: Want to make everyone happy on your road trip? This one is loaded with everything from amusement parks to discovering the desert, to national parks, so everyone will be able to check something off their list. Create your detailed itinerary using suggestions found here: www.visitcalifornia.com/trip/ultimate-southern-california

Winter Car Essentials


It’s cold out there! Taking a road trip this winter? Road conditions are more hazardous this time of year. It’s important to be prepared if a snowstorm hits, ice forms on your windshield, or your car breaks down. Here are some suggested essentials to keep in your car during the winter season:

-Cell phone and portable cell phone charger (so you’ll have enough juice to call for help)
-Water and non-perishable snacks (these are always good to have on hand)
-Blankets & hand warmers (to stay warm if you break down)
-Flashlight and extra batteries (if you break down in the dark)
-Windshield scraper (clear windows are a must while driving)
-Shovel (in case you have to dig out your car)
-Jumper cables (a must to revive a drained battery)
-First aid kit (this is good to keep in the car year-round to treat someone who is hurt)
-Tool kit (a small one doesn’t take up much space and is useful in fixing minor problems)
-Salt or sand (to help tires get traction)
-A T3 Vehicle Security System (Did you know you can set emergency contacts to receive T3 notifications?)

Stay safe and warm out there!

Stay safe on Halloween & mischief night

Halloween is such an exciting time for kids and families. But it, along with mischief night, can also be a bit dangerous. Follow these tips to keep yourself, your loved ones, and your possessions safe.

Mischief Night is typically a time for pranksters to have some generally harmless fun. Occasionally though, vandals use this time to cause destruction to your vehicle. Now is the time to take some precautions to protect your car.

-If you have a garage, be sure to park your vehicle in it. Although pranks usually just involve egging the car or putting crisco on the door handles, these things can damage the vehicle’s paint.

-Be sure to keep the lights inside and outside your home on. This may deter pranksters and vandals since it implies someone is home and watching.

-Keep valuables safe in your home. It is never a good idea to leave things like wallets, purses, and electronic devices in your car.

-Take a look at your insurance policy and check your coverage. If a vandal gets really destructive and decides to spray paint your vehicle, comprehensive car insurance will protect you.

-Install a T3 tracker on your vehicle in case someone gets very bold and decides to take your car for a ride. With this device, you will be alerted the moment your vehicle makes an unauthorized movement or a pre-installed vehicle alarm goes off. The alert will show you the GPS location, speed, and direction your vehicle is traveling. You can then easily connect to the 911 operator closest to the vehicle allowing you to speak directly to the police within seconds.

On Halloween there are lots of people out and about, both on foot, and in vehicles. Here are some ways to keep yourself, and those around you, safe.

For those driving-

-Be careful, and pay close attention, especially between 4pm and 8pm when trick-or-treaters are out in full force.

-Drive slowly in residential neighborhoods, possibly even slower than usual in case children dash out into the road.

-Be extra aware of traffic signs and speed limits.

-Watch closely for children crossing the street. In all of the excitement, they may come out from in between cars and not use crosswalks.

-Keep your headlights on, even during daylight hours so that your vehicle is highly visible.

For those walking-

-Teach your children how to safely cross streets by using crosswalks, not walking out between cars, and making sure they’re visible to drivers before they cross.

-Take flashlights to make yourselves more visible. You can also put reflective tape on costumes or put glow stick necklaces and bracelets on the kids.

Don’t let the implications of mischief night or Halloween scare you. Enjoy the time with your family, but stay alert and aware of your surroundings. For more information on the T3 and how to protect your vehicle visit our website, https://www.911tracker.com/.
