GPS vehicle trackers offer better management of fleets and personal vehicles. The advances in technology have made GPS trackers sophisticated with features that drive away a lot of apprehensions. The need to have updated information on a real time basis of the actual location of a vehicle is fully met by a GPS tracker that works on cellular technology. Additionally, a GPS tracker helps vehicle owners to monitor other important aspects of the vehicle either during motion or when it is stationary. This makes the GPS tracker a wonderful device to have onboard a vehicle. Here is a closer look at some of the features of a GPS tracker.
Fleet management system permitting authorized access of information from multiple locations
Managers of fleets often have to disseminate information about the precise location of vehicles to multiple entities. A GPS tracker offers automated updation of location on multiple devices that are authorized to receive the information. This dispenses with the need for manually informing multiple resources. Information on a real time basis is provided to users, which makes it easy to plan and handle the movement of consignments or vehicles.
Anti theft features
It is important to safeguard the vehicle from any theft attempts. Even the most policed state in the world will most likely witness a large number of attempts or thefts of vehicles. It is therefore necessary to install devices that prevent and intimate owners regarding attempts to steal vehicles. GPS trackers have additional features such as motion and ignition detection, apart from a power cut alarm. This warns owners of suspicious activity. Depending on the nature of the alarm, the features provided in the software permit owners to power off the vehicles remotely and immobilize them.
Speed control without having to rely on speed governors
While speed governors are useful devices, they may at times come in the way of emergencies. With GPS tracking devices it is possible to be aware of the speed at which your cars are driven by drivers or others in the family. With this information it is possible to warn or inform the drivers to cut down on speed, thereby effectively improving the safety of the occupants of the vehicle. Alternatively, it permits owners to take necessary action to replace errant drivers.
