4 Tricks To Get The Most Out Of The GPS Tracker Map

OKLAHOMA CITY (April 13, 2016) — Making the decision to install GPS tracker devices for a company fleet can be rewarding for more than one reason. The most basic feature is something many people, most likely, take for granted these days. The modern-age society has become so used to having digital maps that people, including fleets, may not stop to think about how truly great having this live GPS tracker map truly is for business and how they can get the most out of using this map feature. Here are 4 tricks to get the most of the GPS tracker map.

1.) Variety of map views: The nice part about GPS tracker maps is that users can take their pick from the simplistic Map View (most commonly chosen), the aerial view called Birdseye, the Satellite view, or the Hybrid view. So, it’s simplistic view or a more realistic view, but either way the goal is to be able to see everything that is going on out there on the road and with any one of these choices management will be provided with a great view of a location.

2.) Getting directions: Drivers will never get lost when using GPS tracker maps. If the planned routing tool isn’t handy enough, there is always the option for two-way communication between the dispatcher and the driver. Drivers will have all the details of a route needed to get to their destination quickly and safely.

3.) Traffic updates: It’s important for a fleet team to make it to scheduled appointments or events. Using a GPS tracker map feature for traffic updates means that a driver will have access to information about the traffic ahead. The details reveal how heavy the traffic is in the region requested.

4.) Simple to use: As if having all of the mentioned capabilities weren’t good enough, the system is simple to learn how to use. With very little training users can jump right in and start controlling the most basic aspects of the map.

The live, 3G map helps to connect fleets. It’s like having the whole world in one’s hands. The best part is that it can even go mobile so if management always happens to be stuck on their cell phone, they can still receive updates about what happens in the field. If businesses haven’t “plugged in” to the latest technology provided by USFT's GPS tracker system, those businesses could be missing out on a lot of savings and they aren’t witnessing how to get the most out of GPS tracker maps.
