How can I trace my Vehicle?

You can use any mobile device like your mobile phone or even your laptop to locate the vehicle. The mobile phone or device has particular application installed and may have work on Active or Passive system for tracking.

A Passive System is powered by the vehicle engine and is useful in providing information only when the vehicle’s engine is switched ON. Information about the vehicle current location is then transmitted to the targeted PC where it is displayed on the screen.

On the other side, an Active System is alive all the times and will indicate location of the vehicle even when the vehicle’s engine is switched OFF. It does not matter whether the vehicle is parked in an underground parking or locked in a garage.

As the mobile phone has a shorter memory and other resources, they become slow in response while dealing with traffic in bulk. However, in fewer vehicles, mobile phones are considered the best for handling the information. Moreover, mobile phones provides mobility and have more signaling coverage than PCs, could be used anywhere while on the move. Tracking large numbers of vehicles data deals in bulk data transfer and storage. Hence PCs with good processor and large storage are recommended for the system.

It sends communication signals to the desired mobile device or PC which has particular software installed via satellite connection. The software then displays the exact location of the targeted vehicle on your mobile or PC.

In cases where it is required to monitor vehicles in bulk, it is better to use a PC for displaying the vehicles position. Mobile phones are however slow in response and has less display area on screen as compared to PCs. Hence PCs are mostly used to monitor vehicles in large.

The communication can be performed through any of the 24 hours available twenty satellites. Availability of twenty odd satellites ensures the global coverage and reliable connection.
