Nowadays we all carry mobile devices with us wherever we travel in the world and these mobile devices are becoming more and more powerful allowing us to link into social media, surf the web and even control the heating and alarm systems in our homes.
It’s no surprise then that GPS car tracking devices are available on the market today that follow this popular trend and can help us to monitor our vehicles from the convenience of our favourite mobile device.
Mobile device GPS Car Tracking
When you install a GPS car tracking device on your vehicle you will have the option to monitor the location of your vehicle from your computer or mobile device.
Apps are available for your mobile devices that allow you to receive updates and follow the location of your vehicle at preset intervals of time. Like the fleetminder GPS Tracking app:
When you are working during the day and leave your vehicle parked unattended you will be happy to know that you can still monitor your vehicle while you are away and receive updates on its location.
Two way SMS communication with mobile devices
GPS car tracking devices are now available with the capability to send two way SMS communication to your mobile devices.
No matter where you are as long as you have your mobile device you can receive updates on the status of your car from driving alerts to alarms.
You will be able to send SMS commands to your vehicle as well such as sending an activate alarm signal in the event your vehicle is moved by an unauthorised driver.
The features in modern GPS car tracking devices allow us to know where our car is at all times whether it was towed away, or driven somewhere by an unauthorised driver, or taken from the home garage whilst we were away on holidays.
