In this 21st century, you probably have heard 2G GPS Tracker, one way or the other GPS tracking is a very popular term today. It is almost normal for in the world that people are connected to things, use GPS to locate their vehicle’s locations or monitor their asset or route with GPS apps such as Google Maps. But what exactly is meant by GPS trackers and how does a GPS tracker work?
In this article, iStartek will let you know a broad understanding of GPS tracking since iStartek is one of the manufacturers and suppliers of GPS Tracker in China. Further, we iStartek a company that develops GPS trackers for Rental cars, Trucks, public buses, e-bikes, explain common applications of GPS with examples chosen largely from the mobility sector such as cars or e-bicycles.
What is a GPS Tracker:
A global positioning system (GPS) is a direction-finding device that is normally put on vehicles for instance a car, a person, or an asset to determine their relative locations.
GPS is currently a worldwide radio-navigation system that depends on around twenty-four satellites 6 and their stations on the ground. The System gets its control from the US defense department as its development was for military operations only. Currently, there are many GPS services across the world since every civilian user is allowed the System without charges or restrictions.
Can 2g GPS Tracker still have many functions as 4G GPS Tracker
The only difference between 2g and 4g GPS Tracker is that 4g could have 4g, 3g, and 2g network modules in one but 2g could only cover 2g network however when it comes to the functions they could still have the same functions as GPS Trackers, for instance, iStartek VT200 2G GPS Tracker have the following functions which are same as VT200-L 4G GPS Tracker:
Harsh acceleration alarm²
Harsh deceleration alarm²
Harsh turning alarm
Impact Alarm: Alarm when there is any accident²
Set ACC ON, ACC OFF time interval: You may configure the time for ACC ON and OFF
GPS tracking is a method that involves finding out the exact location of something and monitoring it. 2G GPS tracker contains a GPS component that collects the GPS signals and computes for example the vehicle’s coordinates or the machine to be tracked. A tracking system, for instance, can be placed on vehicles, cell phones, or any GPS-tracker-oriented devices; GPS on these devices can be either be permanently fixed or be portable.
