How GPS Tracking Works
Global Positioning System or GPS is an assortment of 24 satellites, and works with the internet and a digital cellular network. These satellites are continually circling around the world and transmit location-related data to earth on a regular basis. GPS devices are used to receive this data which is subsequently transmitted to a GPS server using the combination of the internet and digital cellar network.
Tracking Actively or Passively
GPS Tracking can work as both actively and passively. In order to avail a tracking service, it's important to understand the difference and functions of both forms. With Active tracking, the receiver transmits signals to receive the data every 60 seconds which is subsequently sent to a remote user. Due to every- minute transaction, the information is always up-to-date, and is received in real-time format.
On the other hand, with passive tracking, the receiver stores data within it which can be downloaded by the user at the end of the day. When it comes to GPS tracking, most users prefer to use real-time tracking services. Though, it's costlier than the ordinary tracking methods, it makes the right choice for locating the objects besides offering a range of benefits to its users.
Covert vs. Open Installation

This feature can be particularly helpful for the businesses looking for an honest tracking for their assets.
On the other hand, with open installation process, employees are aware of being watched by their management. Furthermore, open installation is a proven way to help the employees know that their business owner trusts them.
