A GPS vehicle may look just like a regular vehicle. It may drive just like a regular vehicle. But, for certain businesses, GPS vehicles can prove much more useful. These cars and trucks can drastically improve performance and efficiency.

A GPS vehicle uses GPS technology to record information like its speed and location, which you can then access to closely follow the vehicle's activity. If you manage a fleet of cars and trucks, using these vehicles can give you the power to keep a close eye on your drivers. This extra information can be the key to making everything run much more smoothly.

How to Turn Any Car or Truck into a GPS Vehicle

To create a GPS vehicle, simply take a normal vehicle and install vehicle tracking equipment. This technology uses global positioning systems to determine a vehicle's location. As this location changes over time, it's then easy for the system to calculate the driver's speed.

At this point, the GPS unit must transmit the information to your computer. In the more expensive real time tracking systems, it transmits the information instantaneously, to be read on your computer. The cheaper passive systems just keep a record of the vehicle's location and speed over time. You can later download this information to your computer.
