Vehicle Tracking: What You Need To Know

Do you need GPS vehicle tracking for your company? If you are operating a fleet of two or more vehicles, wish to improve the efficiency and safety of those vehicles, and have a passion to reach your customers more effectively and efficiently, then the answer is yes. GPS fleet vehicle tracking helps companies keep tabs on their vehicles and their drivers, so they can better maximize these assets to reach their customers and clients effectively. It also helps reduce fuel waste, improve maintenance practices and make customer service more positive.

Watch out for those companies offering "evergreen" contracts, as fleet tracking technology and the needs of your business are ever changing. What you need today may not fit your needs in the future, and our flexible contracts allow you to make adjustments as needed.

How Does GPS Vehicle Tracking Work?

Track Your Truck vehicle tracking solutions combine sophisticated GPS tracking technology with flexible, advanced mapping and reporting software. A GPS-enabled vehicle tracking device is installed on each vehicle to collect and transmit tracking data via a cellular or satellite network, whichever works best for your operations.

The device then delivers the data to the Track Your Truck hosted application, NetTrack, which you can access through the web at any time. You receive real-time vehicle tracking updates, including location, direction, speed, idle time, start/stop and more — allowing you to manage a tighter schedule and a more efficient fleet.

  • Track Your Truck’s Coyote tracking device updates the internal position every second and sends a new GPS update every two minutes
  • Track Your Truck’s SkyRunner unit transmits the GPS message via the Iridium satellite network, which covers North America, to the Track Your Truck 24/7 Network Operations Center
  • Track Your Truck’s Skyhawk II unit transmits the GPS message via Globalstar’s LEO satellite network to the Track Your Truck Network Operations Center
  • Track Your Truck vehicle tracking features include real-time mapping with automatic refresh, live tracking from your cellphone, and detailed truck activity reports
