Your Tramigo device references its location to the nearest landmark – a public building, intersection, restaurant or other place you are likely to be familiar with – instead of just sending hard to understand GPS coordinates.
Some tracking devices use street mapping and claim that by getting the exact street address, for example “87 Brompton Rd”, you’ll get a more accurate description of your device location. Not only does this require you to connect to a remote server to reference the data (once again, it won’t work without Internet) it ignores the fact that you probably don’t work at the post office and don’t communicate places by their street numbering in everyday life.
Ask yourself: Do you know the street address of the store down the street, city hall or even your friend’s house?
That’s why most people choose the Tramigo Landmark “Harrods Department Store” rather than “87 Brompton Road”
Because Tramigo Landmarks are preloaded and sent direct from your device, you’ll be able to understand the location of your device even when you don’t have Internet access to load maps.
With Tramigo, you’ll still be able to view locations on top of maps but won’t be dependent on them. We created Tramigo Landmarks so you don’t have to zoom in and out of maps on small mobile device screens or lose track of your valued assets just because you lost connection.
If you are using tracking to guide and coordinate your company fleet, TLD landmarks will give you an easy way to relay locations over the phone to personnel in the field. Telling a courier to go to city hall is easy, but can you imagine saying that the next waypoint is at -1.457378’,3.124990”?
