How to choose a GPS tracker?

A GPS tracker is the device that far not everyone encounters in their daily lives. The GPS tracker is a specific device and its purpose is also quite specific. Why a tracker GPS? Basically, it is to track the person himself or his car.

A car tracking is not secret when it is a company car. Maximum work optimization is relevant for every company, but if the time spent on business trips is used unproductively, the company incurs losses in terms of both time and fuel costs. GPS tracking equipment in such cases is very helpful in disciplining employees who, instead of working, drive a company car on their own business.

How to choose the most suitable GPS tracker? It all depends on your needs. If you want to follow a person, then you should choose as small device as possible. The advantage of a small item is that you can easily put it in a pocket, backpack, handbag or other personal item and always know where the object you are tracking is located.

With the need to track a car, the choice increases. There are several aspects to consider when choosing a car tracker. First of all, evaluate how often you will be able to charge the device. Keep in mind that in order to load the GPS tracking device, you will need to remove it from the car, charge it, and then put it back in again. Understandably, this requires regular access to the car.

If you have the opportunity to frequently charge your car tracker, you can choose tracking devices with a shorter standby time. The shortest standby time for the GPS Tracker is 8 hours. GPS trackers with a shorter standby time are usually smaller, making them easy to hide, and also cost less.

If it is not possible to charge the GPS tracker frequently, then choose a tracker with a long standby time. Among our equipment a GPS tracker with a T5 magnet has the longest standby time. Its standby mode is up to 2 months. Accordingly, due to such a long standby time, the price of this GPS tracking device is higher. For the best value for money, a GPS tracker magnet is perfect. Its standby time is up to 60 days. Tracker GPS has other advantages as well. Its body has a powerful magnet that allows you to attach it to the bottom of the car, so you don't have to worry about getting inside the car. The special bag included in the set will provide protection against dirt and moisture. It is also possible to connect this personal tracker to a server and always see where the car is located. A tracking device connected to the server discharges significantly faster, but this can easily be solved by connecting it to a constant power supply.

As mentioned above, some tracking devices can be connected to a server. In which cases is a server required? A server is needed when every detail of a car’s route is important. With the help of the server, you will be able to constantly see how the car is moving. You will also have the opportunity to view the route history, which is very convenient if you did not have the opportunity to check the location of the car at an important moment. GPS devices without a server send the location of the car only after sending a command via SMS or call. This means you can find out where the car is at just a specific minute.

We recommend that you also connect car tracker connected to the server to a constant power supply., The car GPS discharges quickly, because it is constantly sending a signal to server. So even the personal tracker with the longest standby time can discharge in a matter of days. You can also connect some tracking devices without a server to the constant power supply, if necessary. This will guarantee you that the mini GPS tracker will not discharge at a particular time.

All in all when choosing a GPS device, it is important to decide what you are going to need. Do you want to keep track of the object or just know the location at specific moments and whether you have the ability to charge it. Then, taking into account the technical tracker GPS data, all you have to do is choose the one that best suits your needs.
