How Much Data Does GPS Tracking Use

Does Location Use Data?

The old saying is that no question is a bad question, and that is what the GPS experts tell the hundreds of consumers and businesses who contact the TSD facilities every single day. Every GPS expert at TSD understands the many benefits GPS tracking technology can offer, but at the same time also understands that there is a great deal of misinformation about the technology that is circulating around as well. These things include myths such as the government having devices that are small enough to track everywhere a person moves via GPS, and live monitoring systems that can transmit location even while enclosed in a metal safe. One of the biggest misconceptions that many people have about real time GPS devices that were designed specifically for tracking is that they require a memory card to store data. Although many technological devices require the assistance of an SD card in order to store data, the GPS monitoring systems offered by Tracking System Direct do not require any additional accessories and store all location-based data to internal memory.

Many wireless tracking systems have the unique ability to store upwards of 100 hours worth of data to internal memory. However, what is even more impressive about systems such as the GPS Tracking Key is that they will automatically store data, and have over-write capabilities that never require a user to manually erase stored data. The user does not need any additional accessories or memory cards to store data upon, recording and storing all data to the sophisticated internal memory designed into the circuitry of the devices.

If GPS Data Is Stored To Memory, How Is It Accessed?

GPS tracking data that is recorded and stored to internal memory can easily be accessed anytime via manual USB download where the data can be displayed in text report format or over a satellite image program such as Google Earth. GPS data that is transferred from the unit to a personal computer can then be stored and saved in a file format on the user’s PC, allowing the user to erase the data on the internal memory of the monitoring system.
