 The GPS Mail Logger records the global position of your mail throughout the delivery process. Once you receive your mail, plug in the GPS Mail Logger’s MicroSD card and find out where your mail has been in seconds. With time stamps and recorded downtime you can find out where your mail has been and if it was delayed or misrouted. With GPS you get your mail’s exact satellite location, how fast it was traveling, and even its altitude throughout the delivery process. With this data, the GPS Mail Logger can help you evaluate your delivery company’s effectiveness.

  • IF it is anything like my GPS I can’t see how it would ever pick up a satellite signal when burid in a sack in a postbox
    / truck/ plane/ train or building. So youd probably only get the first and last 100 yds when Posty is on foot !

  • And at that price it would probably be cheaper to post a junior colleague with a note book along with the original package!

  • Richy: :-) Or follow the postie yourself with a pair of binoculars and a compass?

  • I bet delivery companies would love to hear your feedback based on this device.

  • svp pour ne pas ajouter une option de choix de langue pour lire votre site par exemple ;la langue francaise .merci
