Latest Advancements in GPS Tracking Software
As global positioning technology continues to evolve, so too is the GPS tracking software often used with many GPS tracking devices. With the combined power of the Internet, and computer and satellite technology, GPS tracking software for use with any GPS tracking device has grown to include more options than ever before. Below you will find highlights of the latest features and advancements in the industry of GPS tracking software.
Real-Time Updates: Depending on the GPS tracking device used, GPS tracking software can provide real-time, on screen reporting on the specific location of a person, parcel or vehicle from any location in the world. This particular feature of GPS tracking software has provided a cost-effective GPS tracking solution for several industries including aviation, shipping and commercial fishing, where a GPS tracking device can likely be found attached to every company asset.
Mapping: Once considered to provide only crude renditions of the actual terrain, the mapping capabilities of GPS tracking software have improved greatly over the last few years. With many types of GPS tracking software fully integrating with readily available resources such as Google Earth and Microsoft Virtual Earth, GPS tracking software can now provide detailed real photo maps of the location of any GPS tracking device.
In addition, some GPS tracking software applications will now accommodate the use of customized digital, paper or marine maps in the event that standard mapping options do not provide the needed details.
Simultaneous Tracking: GPS tracking software can now be used to track and map the location of more than one GPS tracking device at a time. Using highly- sophisticated technology, GPS tracking software now offers the ability to see an entire fleet of vehicles, given that each one is fitted with a GPS tracking device, on one screen.
Web Applications: As the speed of Internet connections continues to increase, the ease of offering online-based GPS tracking software does as well. Some providers of GPS tracking software are now offering web-based access to GPS tracking software for a monthly subscription or yearly licensing fee. One major advantage of web-based GPS tracking software is that the software is constantly updated by the provider, leaving little or no maintenance for the subscriber to be concerned with.
In addition, some providers of web-based GPS tracking software will allow private-branding of their applications so that licensees can sell subscriptions to their own customers. This presents a unique opportunity for any GPS tracking device dealer or entrepreneur who wants to create residual monthly income based on selling GPS tracking software subscriptions to the customer who purchases a GPS tracking device.
GPS tracking software and GPS tracking devices, like most other forms of technology including computers and cell phones, have experienced great advancements in the last decade. As the cost of the average GPS tracking device continues to decline, GPS tracking is becoming more affordable and in demand for individuals and small businesses than ever before, making GPS tracking and GPS tracking software one of the smartest business choices of the 21st Century.
