The item in question is a GPS battery operated vehicle-tracking device. It is denoted as the HT560 Falcon model. It utilizes an RF signal with a 2.4Ghz-spread spectrum. This enables it to function as a two-way communication device with a range of 1-2 miles. As a GPS vehicle-tracking device it also enables the user to store records and track multiple vehicles simultaneously. It will provide the user with five GPS fixes once the tracked vehicle is motionless.

The applicable subheading for the GPS tracking device, model HT560 Falcon will be 8526.91.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Radar apparatus, radio navigational aid apparatus and radio remote control apparatus; Other; Radio navigational aid apparatus Other.
