4 Types of GPS Tracking Systems 

When choosing GPS tracking systems, it's important to understand the basic types of GPS tracking systems and how they work.  Read below to find out more about 4 common types of GPS tracking systems.

Hardwired GPS Tracking Devices
Hardwired GPS tracking systems are typically used in vehicles.  These GPS tracking systems utilize the power of the vehicle's battery for operation.  With the brain of the unit hidden under the hood or your dashboard, these GPS tracking systems sometimes come with antennas that must be attached to the vehicle.

GPS Loggers
GPS loggers are GPS tracking systems that are used to record information to be retrieved at a later date.  For example, a GPS logger can be used to track a vehicle or a shipment, but the information cannot be retrieved from the GPS tracking system until it is manually uploaded to a computer.  These are also known as passive GPS tracking systems.

Personal GPS Trackers

Personal GPS trackers are GPS tracking systems which look like small cell phones.  They’re designed to be handheld, clipped to a belt, or tossed in a purse for individual use.  GPS tracking systems for personal use are often purchased for the purpose of personal protection for adults and children.  Many personal GPS tracking systems include a panic button for quickly alerting family or authorities in emergency situations.

Real-Time GPS Tracker

Real-Time GPS trackers are GPS tracking systems which continuously transmit information so that users can track their location all the time.  Real time GPS tracking systems are highly-sophisticated and require the use of tracking services and GPS tracking software.  With real time GPS tracking systems, satellite mapping is used to show the location of the GPS tracking devices.
