HOW DOES GPS TRACKING WORK?
A: GPS tracking uses a vehicle tracking system, which is an electronic device installed in a vehicle to enable the owner or a third party to track the vehicle’s location. Most modern vehicle tracking systems use GPS modules for accurate location of the vehicle. Many systems also combine a communications component such as cellular or satellite transmitters to communicate the vehicle’s location to a remote user. Vehicle information can be viewed on electronic maps via the Internet or specialized software. Telematics GPS uses a cellular communication component to communicate the vehicle’s location to our servers. Unlike many GPS tracking service providers, our GPS tracking device continuously sends the position of the vehicle at set intervals (1, 2, or X minutes depending on your plan). Therefore, you always have a history of where the vehicle has been.
