GPS Tracking Resolution

Tracking resolution refers to the frequency at which your vehicles position is reported to the Plug N Track GPS system. The more frequent the plan reports the higher the resolution of tracking.

Is higher tracking resolution a good thing? The answer is, it depends. Some fleet operators whose vehicles are primarily highway driven or aren't as concerned with the whereabouts or routes that drivers take may not benefit as much from additional position reporting. Other fleet operators whose vehicles are driven more in the city, provide dispatching, or simply want a more finite log of the whereabouts and routes taken by their vehicles will benefit tremendously from higher tracking resolution.
