What is mobile phone’s role in vehicle tracking http://vehicletrackers.org/what-is-mobile-phones-role-in-vehicle-tracking/ Sun, 31 Jan 2010 04:43:48 +0000 http://vehicletrackers.org/?p=14 One of the most asked questions we receive from our customers is “Why shouldn’t I just use my mobile phones to track my vehicles?”. This is an interesting question that I fully understand. Since most people and companies have mobile phones with them all the time, there is a natural attraction.

The problems with mobile phones to track vehicles and trucks are numerous. Of course, it depends on the needs of the customer.

First, for many companies, their assets are in the vehicle that is being tracked. Unfortunately, you cannot rely on a mobile phone being in a car, truck, or van. So, if the vehicle is stolen, there is nothing in place to track it.

A second issue is mobile phone battery life. It is incumbent  on the driver to keep the mobile phone charged.  If all of our drivers were reliable enough to keep their phones charged, we wouldn’t be talking about this!

Thirdly, the mobile phone can be undermined in the sense that it can be put in a toolbox disabling the signal.

Fourthly, the mobile phones do not allow you to track idling, ignition starts/stops, or allow for things like starter disabling.

The great benefits to a wired-in device are related to reliability and features.  With a wired device, you always know the device is in place.  You also get the benefits of a having access to vehicle information.

What is a vehicle tracking system http://vehicletrackers.org/what-is-avehicle-tracking-system/ Sat, 30 Jan 2010 16:39:08 +0000 http://vehicletrackers.org/?p=8 A vehicle tracking system combines the installation of an electronic device in a vehicle, or fleet of vehicles, with purpose-designed computer software to enable the owner or a third party to track the vehicle’s location, collecting data in the process.

Vehicle tracking systems usually are powered by internal power supplies, like alkaline or lithium ion battery pack, you can also hardwire them to the vehicle to direct power supply. Cigarette lighter adapter options can be used on almost all models. You can download tracking system data directly to a laptop or desktop via USB or transfer over a cellular network live, it all depends on if the tracking device is a passive or real-time tracking system.

What is Passive Tracking

Passive tracking devices which provide a cost-effective approach to vehicle tracking allow users to monitor assets without having to pay a monthly fee. Since passive devices do not transmit data and only receive GPS coordinates, second-by-second tracking features are common. When the user wants to review the recorded data they simply remove the GPS tracking system from the vehicle and manually download the data via USB port.

What is Real-Time Tracking

For consumers who need to monitor a vehicle in transit, a real-time tracking system is the only solution. Login to a secured website, enter a user identification and password, and then access the GPS tracking data from home, office or smart phone. The vehicle tracking data is easily accessed and recorded to secure servers for future access.
