How do GPS Trackers Work?

GPS Tracking Devices use the network of satellites owned by the United states government. The satellites enable GPS trackers to determine their location to within a few meters.

 

The GPS trackers contain a SIM card which enables it to send its location data to you either in the form of a text message containing a google map link or by data to a mapping system that can be viewed on your PC, Tablet or Phone.

There are three main types of GPS tracker:

Personal GPS Tracking devices

Personal trackers are used to track people or pets. These small trackers would normally be carried or worn by the user. They can give great peace of mind to the family of a elderly relative. We have Alzheimer trackers and dementia gps trackers with SOS functions so help is just a button push away. Personal gps devices can be used in simple text mode or set up on our live tracking server so you can always know where you loved one or pet is at all times.

Anti Theft Vehicle Trackers

Anti theft trackers which will alert you the moment your vehicle moves and generally have no ongoing subscription fees. Many of these are powered from their own battery pack so need no installation and are easy to hide making them ideal for Caravan, motorhome or classic car tracking devices. These trackers will send you a google map location direct to your mobile phone so you can track anytime.
