GPS Tracking FAQs
You’ve probably heard about GPS tracking software before, with its application becoming more and more prevalent in today’s technologically advanced business world. Whether you’ve seen it on TV or in movies, read about it in trade publications, or heard about it from colleagues, it’s out there. And whether you’re responsible for the vehicle fleet of a large company, or a member of the public with only one vehicle to keep track of, a GPS tracking system can benefit you in all sorts of ways, from a financial standpoint to giving you peace of mind.
What is GPS tracking?
GPS tracking equipment consists of two parts. The tracking device that goes inside the vehicle and the software that interacts with it. The device in the vehicle transmits the location data to servers where the software reads and displays the information, allowing you to locate the vehicle, no matter where it is on Earth. Hence the name Global Positioning System, or GPS for short.
How does GPS tracking work?
The device sends out a signal at a pre-established time interval. That signal is transmitted out to a specialized software to read and interpret it as the location of the device. US Fleet Tracking’s system updates every ten seconds, giving you a complete and unbroken picture of the location and route your vehicle is taking in real time.
