3GStore.com is proud to offer our new
GPS Module for the Kyocera KR1 Router
The Kyocera KR1 has been our most popular EVDO Router and we've sold
and supported thousands of units since its introduction. With the KR1
router mounted in a vehicle, everyone on board has easy access to the
internet. Having a 'rolling hotspot' was already more than enough
reason for many customers to buy their KR1 and a Sprint or Verizon card
with monthly EVDO service.
Today, 3Gstore.com is announcing a new way to benefit from the KR1
Router with EVDO service: Our new GPS Module for the Kyocera KR1 Router
provides customers the ability to use Google Earth to do RealTime GPS Tracking, with NO additional GPS tracking fees!
Our GPS Module consists of a transceiver that connects to the KR1's
data port using our proprietary cable, custom KR1 firmware, and
detailed PDF instruction manual. When properly installed, the KR1 uses
the transceiver to determine the vehicle's realtime GPS position and
makes that information available to Google Earth as often as once every
Unlike many similar offerings we've found available, our solution does
not require any monthly charges specific to GPS realtime tracking.
However, the feature is dependent on the EVDO service that the KR1 is
normally used for. EVDO monthly charges are $60 to $80/mo and allow
customers to have unlimited access to web sites, email, instant
messaging and other popular internet services. With our GPS Module,
3GStore customers who use their KR1 with EVDO service for internet
access in their vehicle, will pay NOTHING EXTRA PER MONTH FOR REALTIME GPS TRACKING.
Installation is simple. Place the Garmin magnetic mount GPS on your vehicle's roof:
Attach the Garmin to your KR1 and plug the KR1 into your vehicle for power:
There are many reasons for businesses to consider the combination of the KR1 with our GPS Module:
No more lost drivers and more "On-Time" deliveries.
Lower fuel costs and less wasted mileage means overall lower maintenance costs.
Improved customer service/satisfaction since you know where everyone in your fleet is at all times.
Lowest total cost of ownership, if business already has KR1's deployed to fleet.
And of course, with EVDO through KR1, staff has unlimited access to internet. Email, chat, google... anything! anytime!
The GPS Module is also great for anyone who just wants to:
Let friends and family track progress of your latest adventure.
Let bloggers show their audience where they are as they travel to different events.
Let RVers track each other as they drive across the nation.
Let parents track their children everywhere they go.
Let spouses know where their other half really is.
See where they are at, while they are driving!
How does our product compare to what else is out there? We found some
sites selling GPS realtime tracking service that offered a lot of fancy
reporting and interactive features. These services all generally
charged $20/mo to $120/mo for their GPS specific services and none of
their devices allowed unlimited internet access to high-speed 3G EVDO
We also found sites selling portable battery-operated devices that
claimed to offer "realtime tracking with no monthly fees", but these
devices didn't really offer what we call reatime tracking. Instead,
they collected data into a unit that you had to retrieve from the
vehicle and then download the data from, before you could see the
information about the trip. Hard to believe they call that realtime.
What we didn't find was any service that offered true GPS realtime tracking and no monthly fees.
With our GPS Module and your Kyocera KR1 Router with EVDO service,
you do have to pay a monthly fee, but its not specifically associated
with GPS realtime tracking, nor is GPS tracking the only thing you can
do for that monthly fee.
With our solution, your vehicle is equipped with high-speed EVDO
broadband internet access, and GPS realtime tracking, at no extra
If your company wants our solution bundled with reporting or other
interactive features based on GPS information like latitude, longitude,
altitude, vehicle speed or points over a time period... please contact
us with your specific needs.
What is the cost?
The KR1 GPS Module sells for $295.00 (KR1 not included). If you
purchase the Kyocera KR1 from 3Gstore.com (or already have in the
past), deduct $50, your price is $245.00 If you also purchased a
Verizon or Sprint EVDO Modem with service from us (or already have in
the past), deduct another $50, your price is now $195.
So, if you are just getting started, you would purchase a Kyocera
KR1 for $199.99, a supported Verizon or Sprint EVDO modem from
3Gstore.com ($0 - $100) and of course the KR1 GPS Module for $195.
What EVDO Modems are supported?
We support most of the older EVDO Rev 0 and newer EVDO Rev A modems from Sprint and Verizon, including:
Add a new "Network Link" to Google Earth (DynDNS Info)

your KR1. We have a service to upgrade your firmware, setup DynDNS so
