GPS Trackers: What you Need to Know

How GPS Tracking Systems and Tracking Portal Work

People buy GPS trackers for all sorts of reasons. What they do not know is that GPS tracking systems are not the same.   It is easy to argue that as long as your gps tracker works just fine, nothing else matters. Nothing can be further from the truth than such an argument. Understanding how your gps tracker works and the system it uses will help you to know where your money goes into and if you are getting value for it.   Other key advantages include:


Easy Fleet Management

Fleet managers often have a hard time of ensuring their drivers are always disciplined when using company vehicles.  With a good gps tracker, it will be easy to keep a driver from over speeding. This will in turn save money and fuel as over speeding consumes lots of fuel. The tracker will also ensure that a driver does not use the vehicle for his or her side businesses.


Asset Tracking


Knowing the whereabouts of your assets can give you the peace of mind that your assets are safe and will reach their destination.  All you need to do is to ensure that the asset you are tracking is linked to a GPS tracking portal that will always give you regular updates of where you asset is.  This could be minute by minute updates, or as many people prefer, half an hour updates.   Remember to choose a convenient mode of alter. SMS and email alerts are common. You can use both or stick with one that is convenient for you.


Quality Devices

All GPS tracking companies will tell you that their GPS tracking devices are good and of high quality. They will then try to grab your attention more by telling you they use high technology tracking systems and advanced tracking portals. All these can only confuse rather than help you.  While quality GPS tracking systems may include all these things, it is still easy for GPS tracking companies to miss out on one important factor; water resistant value tracking GPS systems.


GPS Tracking Systems and Tracking Portal for Pets

It sounds funny, but there are GPS tracking systems meant for pets.  You only need to attach it to your dog’s collar or harness and rest easy that you will always track where your dog is. A pet’s gps tracker is not different from other trackers. If anything, it comes complete with a tracking portal which will update you constantly.


Choose the Right Company

It is not enough to just have a gps tracker on your assets. Make sure that the company giving you the GPS services is reliable. At the end of the day, you want to have the peace of mind that your property is where you want it to be.  Only a good company can assure you that.


The Magnetic Clip Attachment is an additional accessory that can be purchased for the Micro GPS Tracker device.

The Magnetic Clip Attachment fits right onto the Micro GPS Tracking device and can secure it to any magnetic surface.  The Magnetic Clip Attachment keeps the Micro GPS Tracker open and visible to the eye, therefore it is water resistant but not completely water repellent.  The magnetic clip can be attached underneath a car passenger seat to the metal bar, inside of the glove box, center console, or in the trunk of the car where there is exposed metal.  A place that is overlooked in the trunk is the area surrounding the spare tire.  The spare tire is rarely seen and has many areas that can aide in the hiding of the Micro GPS Tracking device when pair with the Magnetic Clip Attachment.  This gives you peace of mine when attempting to track your newly driving teenagers, or the sometimes forgetful elderly.

The Magnetic Clip Attachment is also ideal for attaching the Micro GPS Tracker to the top side of the frame underneath the car.  Make sure it is secure and will not fall off, and you can have the device on the outside of the car where it is unnoticeable and can be tracked with our software.  The Micro GPS Tracker Software is easy to use and requires no downloading.  It can be accessed via Desktop, Laptop, IPhone, Android, IPad, Tablet or any Windows or Mac device.
