GPS 54 is a tracker that allows people to monitor a vehicle, asset or person in real-time. The tracking system was engineered to record the movement of a child walking to school, the driving activity of newly licensed teen, company equipment and pretty much anything! Measuring 2.2 x 2.2 x0.8 real time GPS tracker 54 can provide location updates as quickly as every 3 seconds, making it ideal for those wanting accurate monitoring data of a car, asset or individual. The manufacturer claims that the GPS 54 provides its users, “peace-of-mind by allowing you to track the whereabouts of anything or anyone, 24 hours a day”. They even go as far to say that the GPS 54 tracker is 100% Waterproof. Here is what our testing concluded from the GPS 54 review!
TEST ONE: Online Interface Functionality
One of the most important things for buyers is that when they purchase a technology product is that the device is not too complex. That means user-friendly controls and functionality. So that is where our test began. Once the GPS 54 was charged (the device comes with a wall charger like that of a cell phone) and activated (activation took about a minute to complete) our then team explored the online interface. The desktop version of the online interface was fantastic and very easy to navigate. GPS Tracking Review had no issues with basic GPS functions such as setting up geo-fences, creating speed alerts or accessing historical driving activity. So we were certainly impressed with desktop version. For the mobile version we downloaded the SilverCloud App and found that it was great if you wanted to view where a vehicle was located, but was a little cumbersome when it came to accessing reports. This was just because the screen size though and something we have found to be the norm across all GPS trackers. Therefore, our recommendation would be to use the app for viewing live tracking data or setting basic alerts, but if you want to get into the meat and potatoes of the detailed reports that the best bet is to use a desktop computer.
Overall the online interface functionality was very good. However, we were most impressed that the interface had a “Live Chat” option built in for support. Not to mention, the device also came with free technical support available 7 days a week. That was a huge plus for us!

TEST TWO: On Vehicle Tracking
The next GPS 54 review/test was placing the tracker on a car and seeing how it performed. Since the car tracking device was engineered with an exterior magnetic mount our experts decided to test GPS 54 on the outside of the vehicle. More specifically, underneath the Toyota Corolla we used for the review. Here are some bullet points of the GPS 54 real world testing:
- The magnetic mount was VERY STRONG. The device NEVER fell off
- GPS tracking data was continuous without interruption
- The small size of the tracker made it great for covert car tracking
- The battery-life actually EXCEEDED the 50 hours of movement tracking (57)
Overall GPS 54 performed pretty darn close to the manufacturer’s claims. We were very impressed how easy it was to simply slap the GPS tracker on a vehicle then monitor it from our iPhones. Very impressive.
