GPS tracker: Searching capabilities
A lot of people have grown accustomed to having digital maps of some sort, but an online map app isn’t the same as having a real GPS tracker. Many of the navigation units are misinterpreted as being the real deal. When you’re lost, in need of gasoline during an overnight shift, or just need directions right away does your GPS tracker find what you’re looking for? Using a real-time device like one of ours will wield you all kinds of searching capabilities.
Management finding their employees in the field, or employees finding places they need to get to while driving around are both very simple tasks with the GPS tracker search feature. In fact, it takes only a matter of minutes for the system to populate the results of a search. For instance, imagine that a manager needs to see where a certain device or truck is located at a specific time.
The first step for the manager to take would be to click on the lower left part of the GPS tracker device screen and open the search box. From there, the manager would simply have to type in the name of the vehicle in question and an icon would immediately pop up to show where the vehicle was at, live right there in that moment. Pretty simple, right?
Now, what if a driver needs to find a gas station and it’s a late night drive in a secluded area. Sometimes, gas stations aren’t open in remote destinations, but with the simple phrase “gas stations” typed into the search box a list of nearby stores will pop up showing a color code of green if they’re open and red if they’re closed. Think of the time that could be saved by avoiding having to keep driving aimlessly wondering when the next station will be nearby.
The search feature may be one of the easiest GPS tracker features to utilize for time optimization and it’s worth learning to make use of it. To get in touch about getting set up with your own GPS tracker units, feel free to give us a call!
