Public transportation providers are routinely using GPS trackers in a number of ways, including saving fuel, providing accurate arrival and departure times to customers, increasing driver safety.

Your New Car

Some automotive dealers are now placing GPS trackers on new vehicles to aid in recovering the vehicle if repossession is ever necessary.  Although laws vary from state to state, GPS tracking systems are highly-effective in leading law enforcement or other professionals to the exact location of any vehicle fitted with a GPS tracking system.

Expecting a plumber or another in-home service provider?  They just may be using GPS trackers on their vehicles for providing you with the fastest service possible and accurately predicting when they will arrive at your home.  With GPS tracking systems, company dispatchers can track all of their service vehicles to save time, money, and fuel.
