How GPS Fleet Tracking Works
GPS fleet tracking is possible thanks to the Global Positioning System (GPS) – a combination of satellites positioned around the globe. The receivers/devices that we place in your vehicles are able to communicate and send signals with these satellites and in return the exact location of a vehicle can be determined.
The fleet tracking software we have created is able to collect this data and present live web-based tracking at your fingertips. InTouch GPS is able to provide both GPS tracking hardware and software to collect countless information about your fleet.
How Fleet Tracking Works:
- GPS Tracking Device Determines Vehicle’s Location
- GPS Tracking Device Records Data
- Information is Sent from the GPS Tracking Device
- The Information Gets to You

Using Cell Phones For Fleet Tracking
Your smart phone is handy when you are in a metropolitan area and need to locate the nearest coffee shop, but if you need continuous and reliable updates on where your fleet is, twenty-four/seven, don’t be fooled into believing that a cell phone is the answer.
A cell phone is actually the opposite of the answer to your fleet tracking needs and could be a complete waste of money in the end. Cell phone tracking systems are notoriously non-specific in the locations they provide. Also, the GPS feature on a cell phone will drain the phone battery more quickly than it would otherwise be drained. And if your drivers are out-and-about with a dead smart phone, they might as well be on a deserted island, as far as information is concerned.
Last but certainly not least…a tracking system from InTouchGPS will not tie you down to a contract and only costs minimal per month and we don’t charge a penny for our devices. So don’t just take our word for the fact that your cell phone tracking can’t even come close. Try out our system and find out what you’re missing!
