What is GPS? (And what is GPS tracking?)

GPS stands for “global positioning system”. Real-time location data is received via satellite, providing turn-by-turn positioning, so that fleets can more efficiently monitor, manage, and dispatch their workers.

When it comes to telematics, GPS is particularly crucial for providing on-the-spot location data, navigation, and driver monitoring for those who manage fleets in the construction, food distribution, heavy equipment rental, and oil & gas industries.
