How GPS Vehicle Tracking Works

What is GPS?

The Global Positioning System “GPS” is a group of 27 Earth-orbiting satellites. The U.S. military originally developed and implemented this satellite network as a military navigation system but since the year 2000 civilian users have been allowed to receive non-degraded signals. It provides location and time information in all weather conditions, anywhere on or near the earth.

How Does GPS Tracking Help You Manage Your Fleet?

How the Plug N Track GPS device works.

The Plug N Track GPS device, simply installed in the OBDII port of your vehicle, has a built-in GPS receiver and cellular modem. The GPS receiver uses the satellites signals to pinpoint its exact location and time, which it transmits along with all other information it has collected (vehicle status and events), over the cellular network to the secure Plug N Track GPS servers. If the device is out of cellular coverage the information is stored (up to 10,000 positions) and sent as soon as its within cellular range, so you never lose your GPS and vehicle data. The GPS and vehicle information gathered is processed securely by powerful servers hosted by a premier partner in Peer 1 Hosting.
