Since the Global Positioning System (GPS) serves as a receiver and not a transmitter, passive GPS trackers lack a transmission device such as a cellular module that sends the GPS data from the tracker. Therefore, passive GPS trackingdevices, also known as data loggers, primarily function as recording devices.
GPS data loggers typically have an internal flash memory, a memory card slot or a USB port that stores the GPS data gathered from the vehicle or asset to which they are attached. The GPS data can then be downloaded and viewed on a computer.The GPS data recorded includes speed, location and active driving time.
With LandAirSea's passive GPS tracking systems, the stored GPS data can then be downloaded onto a computer or laptop via a USB port. Users can then view an animated version of the route of travel with Google Earth.
These passive GPS tracking devices can be used by sports enthusiasts while jogging or backpacking to calculate the length and duration of a trip. They can also be used by parentsfor tracking their teenage drivers and by private investigators for vehicle surveillance. Passive GPS tracking devices give users the freedom of not having to physically track and monitor the target asset or vehicle.
