A configurable tracking mode may significantly help to build a more real track on a map and save a battery. An advanced GPS platform helps to set-up optimal adjustments using continuous or interval tracking mode for the best experience.
Some GPS trackers may also work in LBS networks like mobile phones and tablets using Cell-ID to locate itself. The LBS tracking mode is good for positioning in urban areas where GNSS signals may be blocked. Working with both GPS and LBS positioning a tracker may show good performance and more accurate tracks.
A GPS tracking system shows not only the positioning data, but also information about a device (and vehicle) status using different elements and sensors. The most common additional data are fuel level (and consumption) battery status, engine status, temperature and special data from a vehicle personal computer.
