GPS is a satellite-based radio navigation system developed by the US Department of Defence. Anyone travelling with a GPS receiver can determine their own position and velocity, thanks to orbiting GPS satellites that are free to use, 24/7, anywhere in the world.
TomTom was one of the first companies to bring this technology to everyday products, pioneering its use in turn-by-turn navigation. They’ve been innovating ever since and have developed, among other things, GPS for vehicle tracking for our business customers. They’re GPS vehicle tracking system is enhanced by a communications channel that links your fleet to the office and provides detailed vehicle tracking data. This information is neatly presented online so that you can quickly see where your vehicles are, manage job dispatch and workflow via Bluetooth®, and improve fuel efficiency through the analysis of driving styles.
Linking vehicles to the office with GPS for vehicle tracking
Every TomTom LINK 510 (in-vehicle tracking system) has an integrated GPS receiver to enable GPS for vehicle tracking, and a GSM transmitter to broadcast the location coordinates of your vehicles and fleet. Back in the office, fleet managers simply log on to TomTom WEBFLEET® – our secure online application – to monitor the journey of each vehicle equipped with a vehicle tracking system. Location data is refreshed every minute, so you always have the up-to-date information you need to make important operational decisions.
Monitoring driving styles with GPS for vehicle tracking
The TomTom LINK 510 vehicle tracking system also has a g-force sensor to detect acceleration and abrupt movements such as harsh braking and over steering, along with current speed and idling time. By tracking these movements [via WEBFLEET®], you can quickly see which driving behaviours are pushing up your fuel bill and take steps to encourage a more efficient driving style.
Enhancing GPS vehicle tracking systems
For an enhanced GPS vehicle tracking solution just add one of our professional navigation devices. They enable two-way communications with the office for easier time management and job dispatch. This is done by connecting to the LINK 510 unit using Bluetooth® and lets the drivers know when they need to change their driving style through Active Driver Feedback.
