How to choose the best GPS tracker?
We offer several types of GPS trackers, including GPS personal trackers, GPS vehicle trackers and tracking solutions; each one with its own features and capabilities. Depending on the specific usage and objectives you are planning, some devices will perform better than others. Contact us now for more info.
How does our GPS Tracker work?
Our GPS Tracking devices contain two modules:
1. GPS module: This module will allow the locator device to get its location from the GPS satellites.
2. GSM module: This module acts almost as a cell phone. It transmits the information received from the GPS module to the cellular networks and from there to our servers. Once the information is received in our servers, special software processes it and presents it to you in our GPS Tracking web system.
What types of tracking systems are there?
There are two types of GPS Tracking Systems:
• Real Time tracking systems: This type of system will collect the information of the vehicle and send it immediately or every 30 seconds to the servers that will process the information. This type of system is ideal when it is a priority to have an on-line, instant control of the vehicles activities.
• Passive tracking systems: This type of system will collect the information of the vehicle and store in the memory of the GPS device. It is ideal for those cases when requirements are less strict.
