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,” said WHRZT! CEO, Jim Nalley in a press release. “It gives us great pleasure to release the WJB-100 in hopes of keeping our customers happy and connected to their valuables.”
