GPS tracking offers many helpful tools to make fleet businesses better. One, sometimes hidden, gem with GPS tracking is their ability to offer an easy way to see where a device has traveled at any point within the past 90 days. This feature, called Historical Playback, gives quite an in depth history in a few minutes, without having to run individual reports. Let’s dive in a bit deeper with one example of how Historical Playback could be beneficial to your fleet business.

Find Data For An Exact Date: Let’s say a circumstance arises which requires you to look up specific details about where a vehicle went throughout the day, but it was 65 days ago. That’s not a problem with GPS tracking Historical Playback. First, you simply click into the Historical Playback area of the control panel and choose the device in question using the drop down menu. Above that you can type in the exact day you need and, if necessary, get specific about the range of time.

While this is the main reason GPS tracking is adopted by many, there is so much more these devices can do and there isn’t an extra cost involved for using things like Historical Playback.
