How GPS car tracking devices work
GPS car tracking work by receiving GPS data from satellites and then transmitting location and other data to either the mobile phone network or to another satellite system.
In both cases the data is then sent to a cloud-based server for viewing by the fleetminder Live Tracking software login.
On demand GPS location can be obtained from your car using our FREE fleetminder mobile phone app. Look for our GPS vehicle tracking app by searching for “fleetminder” on your app store.
