Blackline's First Dart Production Run Sells Out

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Blackline's First Dart Production Run Sells Out09:00 EDT Wednesday, October 31, 2012CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2012) - Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) is proud to announce that it has sold-out its first production run and has commenced shipments of Dart covert trackers to private investigation, vehicle tracking, and asset security customers. Dart's proprietary technology empowers users to efficiently and economically monitor the precise location and security of vehicles and other assets from a web browser or smartphone. Covert tracking devices are often mounted to the underside of a vehicle and exposed to harsh conditions. "In contrast to competitive products that require an extra case to provide protection from water spray and mud, Dart features an integrated, weatherproof enclosure, preparing it for duty out of the box," said Cody Slater, Blackline's CEO. "Investigators will be pleased with Dart's internal battery that is twice the size of competitor products such as the Spark Nano, Livewire FastTrac, and P-Trac Micro trackers, providing increased battery life." Dart is easily attached to the underside of vehicles with the help of an optional high strength magnetic mount. In true "Get Smart" style, the included Cones of Silence™ quiet the traditional, unwanted sound of attaching a powerful magnet to the underside of a vehicle, greatly increasing investigator safety.Functionality delivered by Dart includes various modes of tracking, automatic location-based alerting when Dart enters or departs from an area, motion detection alerting, and internal data storage that buffers up to 12,000 location messages when outside wireless coverage for upload upon reconnection. A selection of Dart service plan options is available - please call for details: 1-877-869-7212. Joining Blackline's award-winning Javelin® and Flat Track® professional-grade covet trackers, Dart places emphasis upon compact form-factor and affordability while retaining top-tier tracking performance and functionality. Dart is currently on display at booth 100 at SecureTech, Canada's premiere national conference and exhibit targeting the $14B annual Canadian public safety and security market, running from October 30 to 31, 2012.
