Basic requirements

You will need a GPS tracking device or a smart phone with our GPS tracking app for each object you want to track. A GPS tracking device receives the position information from the GPS satellites and forwards it to our online GPS tracking plaform. There are also vehicle mounted GPS tracking devices, asset tracking devices and personal tracking devices that include both GPS and a mobile data module. Your GPS tracking device must have an internet connection in order to send its position data to abbotrack GPS tracking software. The most common option is to use a data subscription in 2G, 3G or 4G mobile networks. All GPS tracking devices or smart phones use mobile data SIM cards.
