Frequently Asked Questions


General Questions

Q. How do Live GPS Tracking Devices Work?

A. Live GPS tracking devices work by combining two popular types of technology - GPS and cellular signals. When you turn a GPS tracking device on, it acquires satellite signals from up to 8 satellites. This allows the device to determine it's current location anywhere in the world. Once the device has determined it's location, it sends that data over the cellular network to your GPS tracking account. 

Q. Why do live GPS trackers have a monthly service fee?

As mentioned above, live GPS tracking devices transmit data over the cellular networks so that you can see where the device is in real time. The monthly service fee covers the cost of transmitting this data, just like how a cell phone transmits data.

Q. How is a historical GPS logger different from a live tracker?

A live or "real time" GPS tracking device transmits tracking data in real time, allowing you to see where the tracker is at "right now". A historical GPS logger is similar in that it captures GPS positioning data, however it does not transmit that data live, it simply stores it internally to internal memory. To view the data from a historical GPS device, you need to retrieve the device and connect it to your computer to download the data.  

Q. Do your tracking devices work in my country?

Our live GPS tracking devices work in over 60 countries throughout the world. For a current list of all countries currently supported, view the International GPS Tracking page. Historical GPS logging devices work throughout the world since they log data to the deviece itself and don't require a cellular network.


Getting Started

Q. How do I activate my live GPS service?

Your device isn't activated until you call our GPS service line - this allows you to purchase your tracker and activate it whenever you are ready to use it. When you are ready to turn on your service, call the activation line number inside the product box. Be sure to have your device ID number handy, as well as the credit card you wish to use to bill your monthly service costs.

Q. How do I access my live GPS tracking information?
