GPS tracking is a great way to learn where a spouse or employee is traveling to and how long they are staying. Additionally, this is a great tool to monitor a teenager’s driving habits such as the driving routes taken, how fast they drive and where the vehicle is currently parked.
In the modern world of GPS tracking, there are two types of trackers that are most commonly used, Active and Passive.
An Active GPS personal monitoring tracking device allows you to monitor the device at all times. You can see where it is in real-time. You can also recall history; such as address, how long it was there and how fast it was traveling.
A Passive tracker or Logger tracking system records the history of a vehicle. That history can later be downloaded and reviewed. You cannot locate a vehicle in real-time with a passive system. It does tell you where a vehicle was and for how long and the speeds at which it was traveling.
Benefits of Tracking Devices
If you suspect infidelity in a relationship, a GPS vehicle tracking device may provide you with the clues you need to determine if surveillance is necessary. Our agency will gladly guide you on choosing the right tracking device for your situation.
On the other hand, if using a passive tracking device to monitor your teenage driver, there may be a discount offered by your auto insurance provider. More importantly, you can be alerted when certain conditions are met, like speed, location, excessive idling and whether a seat belt is not being worn. Do you ever wonder what time your teen driver arrives to school or home from school? There are many benefits to vehicle tracking that contribute to safe driving, peace of mind and even the location of the vehicle in case it were stolen.
