How does it work?

Network & Satellite

Our system requires cellular coverage in order to transmit real-time locational coordinates. However, the tracking device is always recording positional data. That means if a user is in an area where no coverage is present, the personal GPS tracker will continue to record data that can be accessed as soon as the user moves back into an area where cellular coverage is present. All the historical data is saved, stored and accessible for a later time.


Global Positioning System (GPS)

The GeoGPS Tracker's Radio Frequency and GSM-GPS networks cover the vast majority of all over the world, including several neighbouring countries. Tracker equipment is also present at all border posts.

  • GPS satellites provide signals.
  • Communication satellites relay your message to specific satellite antennas around the world.
  • Satellite antennas and a global network route your location and message to the appropriate network.
  • GeoGPS messenger's onboard GPS chip determines your GPS location and sends your location and preselected message to communication satellites.

GPS Tracking Basics

  • GPS device for location - A GPS tracking device is installed in each vehicle you want to track. There are many options with small portable GPS devices, vehicle mounted GPS devices and software clients for vehicles that are equipped with laptops or PDAs.
  • Updates position to Server - The position information received by the GPS device is sent to a GeoGPSlink in real time. This is usually done over a GPRS or using SMS in a mobile communication network. You can also use a satellite communication link in areas with poor mobile network coverage.
  • Tracking the positions - Vehicle positions and vehicle status information sent to the GeoGPSlink are shown in real time in a web browser. You can also send alerts over email and SMS for examples when a vehicle is speeding, fuel is stolen, a vehicle leaves or enters an area, and so on. Reports are also available to show vehicle usage, alert history, etc.

Coverage Map

GeoGPS works around the world, including virtually all of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia, portions of South America, Africa, and North-Eastern Asia and hundreds or thousands of miles offshore of these areas.


Equipment & Warranty

We're taking back tomorrow through our partnership with you, our extensive recovery teams, and with our highly sophisticated world class technology. Tracker units will not interfere with the complex electronics found in modern vehicles, such as the vehicle's electronic management system, on board computers and mission critical (safety) computers, due to the fact that the technology has been tested around the globe for electromagnetic compatibility by reputable institutions such as the European Telecomunications Standards Institute (ETSI). All Tracker installations and hardware are guaranteed for a year.


In Addition

Our GPS works accurately in all weather conditions, day or night, around the clock, and around the globe. GPS signals may be blocked by dense forest, canyon walls, or skyscrapers, and they don't penetrate indoor spaces well, so some locations may not permit accurate GPS navigation.
