How GPS Tracking Works…
GPS tracking is accomplished using the Global Positioning Satellite System, a digital cellular network and the internet.
The Global Positioning Satellite system is a network of 24 satellites circling the earth. These satellites transmit location data back to earth on a continuous basis. The LiveViewGPS' system devices are set up to receive this location information.
Once received the data is transmitted via a digital cellular network via the internet to our LiveViewGPS' system servers where the information can be viewed anywhere in the world.
Our personal tracking devices (PT-8100 and PT-8200) use Quallcom's GPS One technology, this allows these GPS tracking devices to be located in areas where a normal GPS signal would not work, such as inside buildings.
As technical as the GPS tracking process is, the data is delivered to you instantaneously. So you can track any vehicle, person or asset anytime, in real-time.
Satellite To Satellite Tracking:
A satellite to satellite tracking system requires no signal from a cellular data carrier. Coverage on our Sat-2-Sat trackers are nearly global. The systems work by receiving data from the GPS satellite system, data is received into the device and transmitted wirelessly back up to a satellite, where the information is ultimately sent to an internet server, where the data can be viewed. We currently have one device that use this technology, the Worldwide GPS Satellite Tracker SX1
