What is the signal refresh rate?

I'm not sure if my terminology is correct, but what I'm asking is how often will I receive data in the event of a stolen vehicle? I've looked at several systems, with rates ranging from 220 times per second to 1 posting every 10 to 20 minutes. The faster the response, the easier it is to track the vehicles movement in real time. This information is very important and should be included in the general description.

    The device is set to locate once every 5 minutes. however, you can call customer service (at any time) and ask them to change the rate to every minute. I did that for my vehicle. I personally really like the 1 minute setting.

    Also, the PocketFinder has a feature called, "Instant Zone", which allows you to create a geo-fence from your iPhone or iPad with the touch of a button. That way, if your car is stolen, you'll get an email/text within a minute of its leaving the zone.

    Hope that helps!
