GPS Tracking Services Offer Many Advantages

April 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 197

The use of Global Positioning Systems, GPS within cars these days is becoming more and more commonplace. Motorists are finding that their new car often comes ready equipped with Satnav and GPS tracking facilities as standard. They are revolutionising public transport networks, postal delivery services and leisurely drives in the country but what are the advantages you can expect from using a GPS device.

Here are eight advantages from using GPS:-

1) Never getting lost, whether fitted to a car, commercial vehicle or boat, a GPS device will ensure you are never lost again. The satellite tracking systems and digital map displays will mean you know exactly where you are at all times, making finding your way or getting back on track a lot easier these days.

2) GPS comes fitted with a traceable panic button that should you find yourself in danger or an unforeseen emergency you can activate the device and alert family, your work place or the relevant authorities such as the emergency services that you are in trouble. These act as an additional layer of security to the driver, which is especially useful when travelling in remote areas or renowned trouble spots.

3) Never suffer the embarrassment of not being able to find your car at the airport or in the middle of a large shopping centre car park. GPS can be used to track down your car in even the most crowded of town centre car parks and busiest of football stadiums.

4) Theft, while annoying, inconveniencing and costly, losing your car with a GPS tracker means that there is a greater likelihood of you recovering the vehicle and hopefully in quick time before it is damaged or burnt out by joyriding criminals. The police can track cars fitted with live feed GPS and the offenders brought to book before the engine has cooled down.

5) Movement sensor, GPS is used to check building stability and monitor hillside or bridge stability. The same idea can be used to trigger an alert should your car move unexpectedly. You can set the system so that should your car move or leave a pre-determined area it warns you that there is something wrong.

6) Insurance savings, companies these days are offering policies that monitor your car usage, mileage and standard of driving and calculate your premiums based on your actual driving ability and not worked out retrospectively based on your previous years driving.

7) Fuel savings, by monitoring your driving activities, speed and journeys you can see how much money is being spent on petrol each month and offer advice as to where you can make savings by taking alternative routes, adapting your driving style or even leaving the house at a slightly different time to avoid trouble spots.

8) Commercially GPS has improved courier delivery times and accuracy, as it is easy to pinpoint where you parcel is and for the driver to confidently find your house. Travelling on trains and public buses is better as GPS tells you how long you have to wait and when the next ride is due.

Being a keen fisherman Alex has benefitted from using his GPS tracking device to find his way around lakes and rivers. In his professional capacity he has been advising companies of the best vehicle tracking systems available.
