|:: Why should I select
HunterPro as my provider?
HunterPro is one of
the largest B2B Complete Solution Provider for
the Americas, Africa and Asia, and is able to
provide a secure, cellular based, GPS based, for
a complete and accurate AVL realtime tracking
application. We're experts in vehicle recovery
with companies along the Americas very satisfied
with our products and loyal to our company.
The main reason for this success is the accurate
balance between pricing, stability, ease of use
and quality. All components of the system has
been carefully selected and integrated in a seamless
If you are you interested in running your own
AVL business then HunterPro is the answer. The
AVL business offers a good income with a high
initial investment. If the initial investment
is low then the income will be low too. In this
case as our prices are very cost effective, and
our products are stable. A main difference from
other products where you have to reset them manually
because they freeze. Anyway we don't want you
to believe without testing, so order your evaluation
kit and find out how stable, fast, precise and
small is our vehicle unit.
Other than selling a product, we're selling a
business to make your own use of the product.
This change in concept has increased sales worldwide.
Our products have very good recovery rates since
they're not based in radio / telemetry for location.
Rather than that they are based in the most widely
available cellular networks and on the precise
and real GPS signal. While other solutions can't
offer a more accurate location than 200-500 meters,
we offer less than 10 meters precision on a daily
basis, and realtime tracking on demand - with
a delay of less than one second to obtain position
once polled (in GPRS).
We offer an excellent recovery ratio and range
of operation (often nationwide and with the use
of roaming it will cover even several countries/states).
You won't pay a monthly fee because is a turnkey
solution, a difference which makes HunterPro GPS
the correct option to establish your own AVL business
or your personal base station.

|:: How can this system
detect the robbery?
If the vehicle has
a car alarm, and it was activated previously,
the fact that there is a door open event, or glass
break, or even shock sensor will trigger the alarm.
Let's assume the alarm's siren output is connected
to one of the GPS intputs for event. The GPS unit
will detect the event and deliver an SMS to the
base station. Base Station will receive report
of robbery through the correct input, and will
display pop up window on screen and location at
that exact moment of time. This will take 3 seconds
(as long as the SMS itself) upon door open.
If the vehicle doesn't have a car alarm, it will
be unable to differentiate when the door is open
by the car owner or by the theft. But it will
still be able to detect shock sensor, or glass
break sensor. But without a car alarm you've probably
less chance to detect a robbery than with it,
but car alarms are nowadays very inexpensive and
provide remote control and additional functionality
for the GPS unit, such as the one you mentioned.
There is a possibility to use the internal alarm
of the GPS unit, but this will require the Base
Station (Call Center) to send an SMS to the unit
eveytime after the user leaves the car at night,
and before the user gets into the car on the morning,
which is unpractical.
The fact that the thief doesn't notice at all
that there is a car alarm or a GPS unit present
is desirable, so the system should let the thieve
stole the car, and a hundred of meters after that
the operator at the Call Center will stop the
fuel pump remotely, thus the car thief will have
to rush from the site, before police officers
or private safety guards arrives.
This method is really good compared to just blocking
the engine right after the thief open the door.
Because this action will make him seek and disable
the security device(s) in order to be able to
steal the car.
In the other situation he won't even notice nothing
is going on and will be focused on driving the
car after what he believes was a "succesfull robbery".
I would also do not install any flashing LED to
indicate presence of car alarm, or any other device
|:: What is a GPS and
why should I need it?
GPS system consists in several satellites
orbiting the Earth.
These satellites can provide a signal to the HunterPro
GPS (hidden inside the vehicle), which will process
that signal using complex geometrical projections
in order to obtain the position of the vehicle
(latitude and longitude), real-time speed, altitude,
quality of the position, time, date and other
data. All GPS receivers used in the market have
a precision of 20 meters in the position obtained.
This position can then be sent to the Base Station
using one or more wireless protocols (for example:
sending a message (SMS) in a GSM cellular network).
And with the use of a secure protocol the Base
Station can then interact with the vehicle and
for example: kill the starter/ignition/engine
in case of robbery, detect Panic button pressed,
So if you want to know WHERE and HOW are your
customer's vehicles or even your own vehicles,
you will need a GPS. And because a GPS receiver
alone won't be of any use remotely (and the same
applies to a GPS handheld), you will need all
the hardware and software which is able to give
the maximum out of it, and will provide the user
with a friendly environment and 24/7 customer
|:: How would I track
my car, if stolen?
From your PC with
the XP-GPS software provided. Just by pressing
the Connect button once you have everything configured,
and waiting for the icon of the vehicle to appear
centered of the map of your country/city.
|:: Do I have to subscribe
to a monthly service or is it a one-time fee?
No, it is a one-time
fee. You only have to pay cellular billing costs
for each vehicle unit monthly, as with any other
|:: I want to charge
my customers a monthly fee of $20 for example.
several countries our company has been deployed
They charge a monthly fee of 20-30 dollars for
providing Automatic Vehicle Location within their
Call Central and 24/7 Customer Care.
Let me tell you that business is good if you get
a low cellular fee by negotiating with the cellular
carrier, and in the other hand if you have a plan
of reaching at least 2000 pcs. within 2 years
it will be a profitable business.
This business is a financial business, based on
having lots of customers paying a monthly fee,
although there is an initial investment for you
or for your company, the revenues are very high
and you can take and keep a slice of the market.
But I recommend that you charge 20 dollars per
month. So once you reach the 2000 customer barrier:
2000 x 25 dollars = 50,000 (let's suppose you
spend 10,000 in infrastructure, personal and cellular
lines cost: you win 40,000 dollars per month).
You will have a very profitable business (aroung
480,000 dollars per year).
Reaching the 2000 barrier is difficult and requires
financial support for the initial investment,
but it is a great opportunity to enter the AVL
business seriously and before other companies
do the same.
|:: Could a car thief
disable the tracking system?
I should say NO, but
the truth is that no system in the world is '100%
Anyway we've thought in many conditions were the
HP-GPS should protect you better: if you install
a backup battery and the thief disconnects the
main battery source, the system will call you
immediately and notify "Event Z".
The only way a thief can stole a car is to be
able to place it inside a container, where there
is no GPS signal or cellular/satellite coverage
whatsoever. No system in the world can prevent
this, except if you install a shock sensor on
our HP-GPS unit, which will notify whenever a
shock is detected in your car, or you may add
a glass break sensor as well. Altogether with
a good car alarm, could be evasive enough to prevent
the robbery. You can add a gas device which will
scare the subject (but this could be you or someone
from your family), a microwave sensor, etc, etc.
You must think about a system which is safe enough
for preventing the robbery and at the same time
being able to track your car in case of robbery
so you would call the police and be able to tell
them where exactly your car is located in real-time.
|:: Would it work anywhere?
As long as there is
cellular coverage, if you live in the US you will
have an excellent national coverage as well as
in other countries (such as Canada an Mexico)
where the AMPS system is still in use. Many countries
in the world are now supporting GSM, but you must
find out with major cellular carriers.
|:: How fast could it
relay information to me? (via email or real-time?)
Real-time, in AMPS
it will take longer for the call to be made (10-15
Once connection is established you will have a
1 per second refresh in real-time. In GSM its
almost instantly (2-5 seconds) because it uses
the SMS gateway. Messages are very small so they're
transmitted quite fast.
|:: How much do I have
to charge my customers?
We have partners in
Argentina, Ecuador and Mexico where many of them
charge an initial "connection" fee of $120. Then
they charge a monthly fee of $30 for each unit.
The vehicle unit remain a property of the company
in some cases, in other they sell them altogether
with an annual contract of service.
This will give you earnings in just 6 months as
soon as you install very fast all the units. Lets
say you purchase 500 pcs at $ 280 / each:
This is an example of an annual investment related
to this business:
1st month: 280 x 500 = -$ 140,000 (Purchase of
2nd month: 120 x 250 = +$ 30,000 (Initial connection
of 500 pcs 1/2).
3rd month: 120 x 250 = +$ 30,000 (Initial connection
of 500 pcs 2/2).
30 x 250 = +$ 7,500 (monthly fee for 250 pcs).
4th month: 30 x 500 = +$ 15,000 (monthly fee for
5th month: 30 x 500 = +$ 15,000 (monthly fee for
6th month: 30 x 500 = +$ 15,000 (monthly fee for
. . .
12th month: 30 x 500 = +$ 15,000 (monthly fee
for 500 pcs).
The more vehicle units you buy, the more money
you will invest, but the more revenues you will
have in the future in your AVL business.
Imagine the income when you purchase 500 pcs.
annually for 5 years:
1st year: $ 47,500 (you have 500 customers).
2nd year: $ 227,500 (you have 1000 customers).
3rd year: $ 407,500 (you have 1500 customers).
4th year: $ 587,500 (you have 2000 customers).
and so on...
This offers a great potential as you may see.
We don't charge anything of your customers' monthly
fee. Our business is to sell vehicle units, your
business: to buy, install and rent them for a
monthly fee providing AVL services. Although all
of this requires an initial investment, the revenues
are very high compared to other businesses in
|:: How can I setup the
units and start my own business?
HunterPro GPS units
needs an enabled cellular service to operate correctly.
So the first step will be to negotiate a price
with your preferred cellular carrier (if possible
choose the one which has the best coverage in
your country) telling him the cellular protocol
of the HunterPro GPS units and the quantity. Tell
him that those cellular lines will be used ONLY
to send and receive data. If your units are GSM
based, the process is much simpler: you have to
obtain as many SIM cards as you need.
Once the units are enabled, you have to install
them hidden inside the vehicles.
Installation is a very simple process which involves
the connection of the GPS antenna, cellular antenna
(if necessary), and GROUND. The GPS antenna should
be hidden too, but keep in mind the system won't
operate correctly if you install the antenna under
metal surfaces/objects because the signals sent
out from the satellites are very weak.
If you need a Panic button, you can use the X
Input and connect a tact switch to it properly.
The process is similar to a car alarm installation,
but much easier.
The user will only have to be able to click a
button on the GUI (for instance: "Connect") and
he/she will be to see the real-time state of its
vehicles remotely. So the learning curve is very
suitable for first time users in this kind of
|:: What about configuration
and use of the software?
The next step will
be to create your customers database using HunterPro
Run the application, press the Edit button located
at the left window, and then you can add, modify
or delete existing customers. The PIN number should
always be "012345" unless specified by us directly.
And the cellular number should be the number of
the cellular transceiver inside the unit which
have been assigned by your carrier.
Once everything is configured correctly (shouldn't
be more difficult than this), select the customer
you wish to poll using the arrow-buttons at the
bottom of the left window, and then press the
"Connect" button at the bottom of the right window.
If everything is correct and both base station
and vehicle unit have service, the real-time state
of the vehicle will appear at the bottom of the
screen. Both location and heading will be shown
as an icon in the middle of the vector map, which
will be refreshed at a rate depending on the cellular
technology and the configuration of the remote
Several applications can then be thought for this
system. The most widely used is what is called
AVL which means Automatic Vehicle Location. But
with HP-GPS you can have additional feature: real-time
fleet monitoring, remote messaging to an LCD (XP-GPS),
virtual geographic fencing or "geofence" (XP-GPS),
remote hearing and conversation (HP-GPS AMPS),
automatic fleet dispatch, remote download of the
route followed by the unit in the last 48 hours,
All complex tasks which make all of this solutions
possible are done in the background by the XP-GPS.
And because we're an open company we offer research
and development services (with an additional cost)
for adding extra functionality or embedding your
own ideas into the XP-GPS software.
|:: What do I need to
become a reseller?
The only condition
for becoming a reseller is to purchase 100 pcs.
You will be provided with all the information
necessary to setup your base station fully. Unlimited
email support is provided at no cost.
If you need an exclusive contract for your country,
the condition is a minimum purchase of 500-5000
pcs. annually (depending on the country).
Find out the best cellular coverage available
in your city/country (AMPS, CDPD, CDMA, GSM or
TDMA). You can find the correct quotation for
the cellular network of your choice below.
Maps are not included and can be purchased directly
from us as we're a strategic partner of a GIS
corporation which has lots of maps and availability.
The Base Station is free with your order providing:
latest release of XP-GPS software, Cellular/Landline
interface, plus all the necessary to setup your
Base Station accurately.
|:: Which map formats
Although our software
supports several map formats, we STRONGLY recommend
TAB maps from MapInfo or from an authorized reseller.
We don't do conversions from other maps into TAB
since this can lead to several errors (missing
coordinates, wrong/missing street labels, etc).
100% supported map format is "TAB Map prepared
for MapX". So you must ask for a Geoset File (.GST)
prepared for your map for the fastest redrawing
times, with "Autolabels ON" in each layer which
contains relevant info so its labels are shown
automatically (e.g. street layers).
This is necessary in order for each layer to display
correctly, with correct colors, correct layer
order, and producing a fast map redraw on each

shown in a list. User can sort them and process
each one, having a complete control of all the

It is a hi-tech GPS
system which supports an easy to integrate ASCII
protocol, and is remotely programmable in a user-friendly
You can command it easily from HyperTerminal for
example, or you can integrate this product into
your application. The command specification used
is TAIP-like, being 100 % TAIP compliant in some
As you may see in our website, we've added LCD
support to our units, and released the XP60 GPS
with more features than its predecessor the HP60.
Remote messaging is now available, and the user
now have remote confirmation buttons for dispatch.
Also, a virtual geographic fence (which we call
GeoFence) can be added so the when vehicle enters
or leave the pre-programmed zone it will report
it to the base station.
|:: Which are the differences
between HP60 and XP60?
Both HP60 and XP60
are intended for Automatic Vehicle Location, Fleet
Management, or Remote Dispatch. This products
can be installed in trucks, cars, vans, or any
vehicles with power available. For 24VDC vehicles
please instruct us first. Stand alone battery
can be added externally so if the main battery
power is lost for any reason (unauthorized maintenance
or robbery) the vehicle unit can report this to
the base station along with the position of the
vehicle and real-time events information.
HP60 and XP60 products are very similar and provides
practically the same functionality. You should
buy XP60 only if you would like to integrate our
hardware into your software, or if you need GeoFence,
an LCD display, or a dispatch solution.
The HP60 is an excellent product, cost-effective,
rock-solid firmware, very responsive, and very
easy to use. All of this to provide a fast service,
