GV500N is considered as an advanced model than original GV500 because it has a newer firmware.
This device can read a diagnostic data from an onboard PC of the most vehicle models. On this criterion that GPS tracker is considered the best OBDII devices whole. This tracker supports the J1850 PWM, J1850 VPW, ISO 9141-2, ISO 14230, ISO 15765, J1939, CAN_USER1, CAN_USER2 and VW TP2.0 standards.
Also, it has the support of Assisted GPS that have a positive impact on the quality of tracking. It is most important for OBDII devices that are connected under the steering column where GPS signal is weaker.
It can work in a wide operating voltage range from 8V to 32V DC.
Location and tracking
GV500N comes with modern GNSS chip from u-blox, which has high sensitivity and receives signals of GPS, GLONASS and other systems. Besides it supports Assisted GPS (A-GPS) technology for faster location acquiring. To provide even better sensitivity the device is embedded with two GPS antennas (for manufacture dates starting from December 2015). The second antenna serves as a backup in case the main antenna does not perform well in some specific situations (OBDII trackers are often placed under the wheel's column where GPS signals are weaker). All of these give a positive impact on the quality of tracking.
As for the tracking modes, they are fully adjustable: by time and distance intervals, direction change. The device has power saving modes and well detects the movement status according to the Ignition stat (PIN #1) and smart proprietary algorithm based on internal G-Sensor.
OBDII diagnostic data
Queclink GV500N reads a lot of data from an vehicle's diagnostic system. The tracker supports many standards (J1850 PWM, J1850 VPW, ISO 9141-2, ISO 14230, ISO 15765, J1939, CAN_USER1, CAN_USER2 and VW TP2.0) and on this criterion is considered one of the best OBDII devices. With GV500N you can retrieve the following information:
- Fuel level
- Fuel consumption
- Dashboard speed
- Coolant temperature
- Throttle position
- Engine load
- VIN – Vehicle Identification Number
- and other
It also provides information about MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp – Check Engine) and DTC error codes.
The number of detected events far exceeds the typical amount for OBDII trackers. GV500N hardware and firmware process such events as Tow, Harsh driving (braking, cornering, acceleration), Long idling (with engine working), Detach from OBDII socket, Low external power voltage, Low backup battery, Signal jamming and others.
Advanced power management helps to provide lower power consumption and that device can work for many hours even in active mode.
For specific installations an OBDII extension cable can be offered.
