What is GPS fleet tracking?
GPS stands for Global Positioning System. The technology was introduced by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) exclusively for military operations. Back in the 1970’s, GPS technology was used heavily by the armed forces to navigate using radio frequency waves. However, a few years later, the DOD decided to open up the technology for civilian usage.
At present, the commercial applications of GPS tracking are many. GPS fleet tracking, specifically, enables fleet managers to locate, track, and monitor their fleet of vehicles on a real-time basis.
How Does a GPS Vehicle Tracking System Work?
Can the solution be implemented on old vehicles?
Yes ! GPS Fleet Management Solution can be implemented on any vehicle regardless of its model make and year, it can be applied from motorcycles to stationary equipments (generator) and machinery.
How much does it cost?The solution is of wide scope and the cost of implementing mainly depends on the requirement and the quality of products in use. Based on the requirement the solution may involve one accessory or multiple accessories which determine the cost.

In case the vehicles spend in remote no network areas for some known interval, users are unable to access the real-tme (active) tracking information of their asset but this doesn't mean the data will get lost. All the events and track history will be logged in the offline memory of the GPS device and will latter be automatically transferred upon fixing active cellular data network
