GPS 2 300x180 - How Do GPS Tracking Systems WorkThese types of GPS Tracking Systems report back in real time showing the trackers position on a moving map display as often as a few seconds. The tracker obtains its position by using the GPS tracking systems (Global Positioning System) The GPS system uses 24 satellites travelling in 6 orbital paths around the Earth at a distance of 12,600 miles. These satellites transmit a low power signal The pattern of their orbit is calculated so that a GPS receiver on the earth’s surface is always ‘visible to at least 4 of these satellites. From these 4 satellite transmissions your GPS Tracker can work out its location to within a few metres. This is the same system used by car sat nav systems and is extremely accurate.

The tracker then sends its position data back to a web server via GPRS or 3G on the mobile phone network to report its position this can be as often as every few seconds or if regular updates are not required much longer time spans can be selected. The web server also stores all of the positions in a history file enabling you to see all of the trackers movements even from many months ago, enabling you to just leave it on the vehicle without logging in from your PC or phone and still be able to see what journeys it has made at your leisure. The tracking panel can be viewed from any modern PC as long as it has a internet connection. There is also a facility that allows you to view the tracker in real time from a tablet or mobile phone using Android or IOS Apps.
