Monitor your teen’s driving characteristics with our Teen Tracker device, so you’ll always know whether they’re speeding, visiting places you disapprove of, or doing unsafe stopping and starting.
All these tracking solutions include a one-time payment for whatever kind of tracking device is being used (unless you’re renting), an activation fee, and an affordable monthly payment plan, which is well worth your investment. Most units can be programmed to monitor either very simple characteristics, or very detailed and sophisticated aspects of driving.
For most trucking companies, the ideal solution for accomplishing necessary monitoring of the fleet, as well as staying in compliance with federal regulations, is to rent one of our low-cost tracking systems. When renting a fleet tracking unit, for instance, we can offer the lowest cost rental plan of any fleet tracking system on the market.
There would be no hardware costs associated with this because the cost of the unit is included in the monthly fee. There is also no contract necessary, so you’re not committed to a year or two years of service, and you will instead have the option of withdrawing at any time. When you have these units installed on your vehicles, you will be able to track all vehicles simultaneously, either on satellite images or Google maps.
You’ll have access to all the relevant information such as stop and start times, locations, mileage, and speed. Best of all, you’ll probably earn a significant discount from your insurance company, which will completely offset the cost of installing tracking units in your vehicles.

Electronic logging became necessary as of December 18, 2017, when the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) mandated that all vehicles must have electronic on-board recording devices (ELD’s) installed. In addition, it became necessary to automate all reporting regarding Hours of Service, so that drivers could be monitored and stay within constraints for driving hours.
The whole purpose of this was to have an iron-clad reporting system that could be surrendered to law enforcement officials upon request, as well as to submit automated logs at weigh stations along any given route. If you’ve been having trouble staying in compliance with these mandates, GPS Technologies has the perfect solution for you, so that all your compliance tracking needs will be covered.
When you become part of our ELD system, you’ll have your own unique login, so that all the log reports can be tracked, as well as all your drivers. You’ll have readily available reports for Hours of Service, and there will even be alerts triggered whenever individual drivers exceed the limits of these hours during a given time frame.
