GPS Tracking – FAQ
What is GPS Tracking?
GPS tracking is an automated vehicle location system. It allows you to quickly locate an item, such as a vehicle, trailer, front loader or any other heavy equipment. A GPS receiver is installed on the asset. It sends important information, such as location, date and time, speed, and direction to a computer server via wireless communication. This data is then displayed on a website with a digital map.
The wireless communication is provided by either Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint.
