How are GPS trackers used?

GPS trackers are used by fleet managers and vehicle owners to track the location of their vehicles. GPS tracking systems can provide useful information in a number of scenarios for managers, such as:

  • Tracking business data: Business owners and fleet managers who oversee vehicles on a regular basis can use GPS fleet tracking to monitor their movement and track mileage. This is helpful in understanding where employees and vehicles are at a given moment, or where they have traveled throughout the day. 

  • Vehicle location reporting: If a vehicle is stolen and has a GPS tracker installed, its location can be reported to the authorities who can recover it more quickly. 

However, vehicle trackers can do more than track vehicles, they can keep an accurate record of vehicle movements & time log, current vehicle whereabouts for safety reasons, provide useful data for mileage, hours spent on site and much more depending on the model. Combined with internal vehicle security cameras they provide a powerful deterrent against theft and in some cases may reduce insurance premiums. It is possible to set an alarm if a vehicle moves out of a set range or even a specific location.

Other options include:

  • Immobilisation
  • Ignition on/off
  • Panic button
  • Intercom

We do DIY kits or standard installation under the bonnet, more advanced functions may require an auto electrician eg immobilisation

Trackers aren’t limited to motor vehicles- any thing that has a suitable power source (often 12V vehicle battery) or if not then wide-range voltage or built-in high capacity battery options are available, can be powered by solar too. Ideal for caravans and motor homes.
