Selected by CIO Review as one of the Top 20 Most Promising Automotive Tech Solution Providers in 2014.
Going above and beyond, Spireon has built the Talon GPS Vehicle Tracking Device to not only meet industry standards but exceed them. Which means that it exceeds customer expectations, as well, perhaps the most important benchmark of the two.
This record of excellence exemplified in the customer service scores (extremely low product returns and a high resolution rate) and record-breaking sales numbers (over 538,000 units shipped thus far), and it is all thanks to the Talon’s history of innovative features.
While remaining cost-effective and quality-built, the Talon has met all of the industry’s most rigorous standards for safety, quality and performance including the rigorous FCC certification. Built with all of the latest advances in GPS technology, the Talon meets TRP (Total Radiated Power), and TIS (Total Isotropic Sensitivity) certifications while also becoming the first device in the industry to be PTCRB-certified. With this certification, the quad-band Talon offers asset management the ability to work well across multiple wireless carriers in the United State, Canada and Mexico with future reach potential into Central and South America.
Designed from its inception to be both rugged and effective, the Talon is the only device on the market that is ultrasonically welded together and sealed. This makes the Talon not only heat- and cold-resistant but insulated and safe from all environmental factors and any possible tampering. With a small footprint and subtle appearance, the Talon easily blends in with the already existing equipment in any vehicle. Talon also delivers all the performance customers demand. With the industry’s fastest warm fix rate of 18 to 22 seconds, the Talon quickly captures and shares vehicle data, especially the all-important location. Even when a vehicle has not been driven for more than a month, the Talon rapidly re-syncs and continues working with an astounding cold-fix time of less than 40 seconds.
Spireon has also brought several new innovations to the industry with a specially designed SIM card holder. Unlike other GPS devices on the market the Talon’s SIM card holder is made of metal instead of plastic, keeping it safe from warping due to possible extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Containing an internal resettable fuse, Talon is protected from sudden surges of power, a weakness many electrical products are prone to. If a sudden spike in power causes the fuse to reach 90 volts, the fuse automatically resets to provide uninterrupted communication.
The Talon is the undisputed answer to the demands of the subprime automotive finance market, mitigating the risk while still taking care of the customer on every level. Exceeding all industry standards, meeting FCC regulations and having all the required certifications, the Talon not only performs but innovates. Today and down the road.
