Frequently Asked Questions

GPS tracking is the method of tracking the location or whereabouts of an asset which may include a vehicle, a person or a piece of equipment.

GPS tracking utilises the GNSS – Global Navigation Satellite System. This network exploits a number of satellites that communicate through microwave signals which are in turn relayed to a GPS device to know the location, time, duration and speed of an asset or vehicle that is being tracked.

A GPS tracking software is generally employed to render the recorded data and the software translates the logged location data in forms of dots on a map. With the software, it’s quite easy to determine the route history, track a vehicle in real-time and determine the estimated time of arrival based on the asset’s location data.

A GPS tracking system helps in tracking the precise location of the given asset can be tracked using a dynamically generated map interface.

GPS tracking isn't entirely free since it involves usage of a mobile data connection that is offered as a paid service by a telecom operator to send location data of an asset or a vehicle to end-user.

GPS tracking as a solution is permitted in workplaces as long as it doesn't invade privacy and infringe or violate any workplace laws applicable to the given country.

The GPS network exploits a number of satellites that communicate through microwave signals which are in turn relayed to a GPS device to know the location, time, duration and speed of an asset or vehicle that is being tracked. Thus, the system is highly accurate, precise and updates location data in real-time.

Usually, a plug and play GPS tracking device is placed under the dashboard of a car. The device can also be hardwired for added safety and security.

GPS tracking helps fleet businesses save more on labour and fuel through real-time vehicle tracking, end-to-end fleet management, automated delivery and dispatch, along with historic data reporting and custom alerts and notifications about assigned drivers and vehicles.

GPS Tracking requires data networks to transmit precise location turn by turn. The only reason you might find an error in GPS tracking is due to lack of network coverage in a particular area or in locations that are underground and beyond the reach of satellite tracking.

Generally, a standard GPS tracking device can as small as the size of a Tim Tam, Australia's most loved chocolate biscuit.

It is illegal to block or tamper with a GPS tracking device, based on the laws for the applicable country. However, a GPS blocker can be used to override a GPS signal based on its strength. The use of GPS blocker is subject to laws applicable to the corresponding country.

GPS tracking requires the use of both hardware and software for proper functioning. The hardware constitutes the GPS tracking device that is placed on a vehicle or an asset that requires tracking whereas the tracking software installed on a phone via a data-enabled app is used to tracking the location of the vehicle or the known asset.

GPS tracking enhances security, safety and accessibility of vehicles or tracked assets. The data shared is protected by an unhackable encrypted network. The location data for the tracked vehicle or an asset is only accessible to the registered end-user that elevates better protection and trust.

GPS tracking is the method of tracking the location or whereabouts of an asset which may include a car, a person or a piece of equipment. A car fitted with a tracker device is accompanied by a GPS receiver and a wireless transmitter which might be a 4G activated cellular sim card that transmits the recorded location at predesignated intervals to a remote data server, thus, telling you the exact location of the tracked vehicle.
