WHRZT! Adds GPS Designed for Towables Market

Fri Aug 26, 2016

Dallas, Texas – The towable RV market will see a new addition to security and location-based services with news of WHRZT! (Where’s it), the Dallas based technology startup, releasing the WJB-100, their first GPS device designed for the towable market.

WHRZT! has designed the WJB-100 to be hidden in plain sight in the lid of a standard Seven Pin Junction Box found on most towable RVs. The user simply replaces their current lid with the WHRZT! GPS lid, wires the device to power and ground, and starts tracking. Users can then see the location of their trailer whenever they want, receive movement alerts via text or email, and even set up Geo Fence boundaries that will send an alert if breached.

“Our first product, the WBB-100, was a huge success, but we found that people were continuously asking for something to fit their towable RVs,” WHRZT! CEO Jim Nalley says. “It gives us great pleasure to release the WJB-100 in hopes of keeping our customers happy and connected to their valuables.”

The WJB-100 is not only discreet, easy to install, and at an affordable price point, it is accompanied by an impressive tracking portal packed with innovative security features. Stay connected with text and email alerts, see the location of a towable as often as every minute, assign a name, picture or personal note to a trailer, or even go back and look at the location history.

“The WHRZT! solution allows towable RV owners the ability to monitor and secure their RV at all times, whether it’s in storage or in a driveway” WHRZT COO Gary Menees says. “Not only can individual RV owners use this service; it is also ideal for anyone in the towable rental business.”
