Tracking Genie ®: GPS Vehicle Tracking System in India
Frequently Asked Questions
1.What is GPS? GPS is a space based radio navigation system developed by US defence services. These consist of constellation of 24 earth orbit satellites that transmit microwave signals to a GPS receiver. From these signals the receiver calculates the latitude, longitude, altitude and time for each specific user.
2.How does GPS work? The system works on triangulation to find a location. We need minimum of 4 satellites to calculate the latitude, longitude, altitude and time for each specific user.
3.How do we get details on our PC/Laptop/Smart Phone? The GPS receivers passively receive signals and convert them into meaningful data. This data is transmitted to your PC/Laptop/Smart Phone with the help of server through GSM connectivity.
4.Where is the GPS receiver installed and is it easily visible? It is placed inside the vehicle facing the SKY in such a manner that it is not easily visible to all.
