Do you want to track where someone is driving your vehicle? Do you need to keep track of valuable assets? Or do you always need to be able to locate the precious people in your life?
If you do, GPS tracking systems are usually the solution. When you don’t want to be obvious about tracking someone or something, you may need a battery-powered GPS tracker. They are discreet, and they are versatile.
Battery-operated GPS systems can be carried around in clothing, or in a purse or a backpack. They can be attached to the underside of a vehicle, under the hood, inside a console, or in a cubby hole.
These kinds of GPS units allow you to always see the GPS tracker’s location. They can be programmed with geofences, so you will know when a person or an asset enters or leaves predesignated areas.
There are also GPS tracking units that aren’t designed to be hidden. They can become an important part of an integrated dispatch system that helps a company track driver performance and engine efficiency as well as the location of all the vehicles in a fleet. But no matter what you are looking for in a GPS tracker, it helps to have an industry expert to guide you through all the choices.
Are GPS Trackers Worth It?
For parents of teen drivers and adult children of senior drivers, GPS tracking can be priceless.
With GPS tracking, older drivers and teens don’t “fall off the radar.” Concerned family members will know where their loved ones, and their cars, are at all times.
GPS tracking can also help parents of teens and adult children of senior drivers make sure their loved ones are driving safely. GPS technology can record not just when a driver is speeding, but when a driver is taking wide turns, making fast starts, or slamming the brakes a lot. GPS tracking can identify driving habits that need correction in time to prevent crashes. And when the worst happens, GPS tracking helps emergency workers find teens and senior drivers quickly.
GPS tracking also aids emergency response for commercial vehicles. But a dollars and cents analysis of GPS technologies for monitoring commercial fleets reveals many other potential savings.
GPS units aren’t just for tracking the movements of cars and trucks. They also can track the movements of trailers and their cargo, and the whereabouts of expensive equipment such as trailers, loaders, bulldozers, generators, and welding equipment.
The same technology that keeps a dispatch office in constant touch with driver-operators can also help asset managers keep tabs on equipment. GPS enables asset managers to instantly locate equipment and assists in recovery of equipment that has been shipped to the wrong location, misdirected. or stolen.
Many teens don’t like the idea of being tracked. They may seek to disable or remove GPS tracking devices that are mounted in obvious locations in the vehicles they drive. But there is GPS technology that keeps parents’ minds at ease without causing upset with the teen.
GPS Technologies can provide GPS trackers that operate in stealth mode. They can provide trackers that are integrated into the car’s electrical system, and never need to be taken out for recharging. Teen tracking devices can be synced with the parents’ phones for constant, unobtrusive safety monitoring.
Fleet managers quickly discover that investing in GPS tracking technology pays for itself.
GPS fleet tracking always helps fleet managers reduce fuel costs. But it also reduces the cost of insurance, repair expense, and administrative overhead.
One of the most common uses of GPS fleet tracking is making sure that company drivers operate their vehicles with the speed limit. Avoiding excessive speed increases fuel economy.
Every five miles per hour an operator of a light truck drives over 50 miles per hour adds 6 percent to file costs. Keeping tabs on commercial driver speed can lower fuel costs 7 to 14 percent.
Operators who stay within the speed limit have fewer crashes. Good driving history lowers auto insurance costs.
GPS tracking eliminates the need to keep paper logs. They eliminate human error in creating reports and save hours of driver time every month.
Accurate billing is easier with GPS tracking. And GPS makes it easier to keep customers in the loop with accurate estimates of ETAs and delivery exceptions.
Portable tracking devices are revolutionizing our lives. Air tags help us find luggage that has been lost by our airlines. Cat and dog trackers help us find missing pets. Wearable tracking devices help joggers keep track of their mileage, help hikers find their way out of the woods, and enable people with serious health challenges to get out and about safely.
