Sometimes your vehicle will be out of cellular coverage but you will still receive these locations when your vehicle comes back into cellular coverage. However, there will be times when your device is hidden from GPS satellites so you will miss these locations but that should be infrequent.

We store your data for 6 months and do not charge to access it anytime.
WHAT IS GEO-FENCING?
Geo-fencing allows you to set area/location triggers so when your vehicle enters (or exits) the boundaries defined; you will be notified with an alert.
CAN I CONCEAL THE TRACKERS FROM MY DRIVERS?
The tracker itself will be placed under the dashboard and the GPS & GSM antennas on the dashboard for a view to the sky. If you wish to hide the antennas, we can also place it under your dashboard. However, doing so may weaken the signal transmissions of your tracker due to the “extra” level of disturbance.
We suggest informing your staff and explain to them the benefits of GPS tracking. Once your driver knows that they are being tracked, they will feel safer and less liable to break company policy.
