Every year the president of GPS to Go, Russ Salo, is very excited to be able to chair the Pleasant Park Public School annual family night BBQ. This year was too much fun and the weather plus a fantastic roster of teachers & parent volunteers made this years event a smash! Thanks to the Co-Chair Dave Armstrong for his unwavering support and dedication ( plus he really rocks the big gas grill). Here is the picture of our President’s son Richard with one of his dear friends from Russ’ Shrine clown unit Bob “Big Squirt” Conrad (sorry folks but Russ was unable to don his own Shriner clown costume as “Waffles”)

See you all in 2012 (June 8th I believe we decided)

P.S. And if you are curious, here is the picture of our President, Russ Salo as a clown from another event.

Ride for Dad event has grown over the years to be a huge National event (we remember when it was just 25 or so bikers just in the Ottawa Valley area )

GPS to Go was so honored this year to receive Community Builder Award for supplying free GPS Tracking for the National chase vehicle “Big Bertha” which allowed participants across the country to look live through our website and see where the ride was in real time. No more looking longingly down the highway wondering when they were gonna show up.

We shot a video that shows a slightly comical spoof on Employee tracking. What is really going on with your employee’s when you call them in the field only to hear they’re just 2 minutes away and stuck in traffic. Enjoy and share!! And if you wonder about where your employees are, contact us and we can help track them!

 

Happy tracking,

Here we see a really nice and effective way to install the GO5 Compact GPS unit into a Big Rig Tractor Trailer with the use of our plug in cable for heavy vehicles.

With a tie wrap and the 9 pin connection cable, as you can see plugged here into the dash of this truck. We had this big rig up and tracking in a matter of minutes.

Thanks to everyone over at Abbotsford Ability Moving & Storage for choosing GPS to GO.
