GSatTrack has supported overlaying custom data on top of our standard map for a while. As previously noted, GSatTrack supports KML, GeoJSON, GPX and Image Overlays to help customers enhance their map views and provide valuable at-a-glance context for locations assets may be occupying. We’ve now improved upon that great feature by adding support for two additional formats: Tile and Web Map Service (WMS) layers.
While customers were previously... More
Account holders with large amounts of assets often organize their assets into related segments. These segments can be based on any number of factors: geographical location, such as city- or region-based groups; device type, often the case for equipment maintenance; intended use; or more. In any case, GSatTrack offers alerting and reporting on a flexible basis to assist by simplifying the setup and reducing maintenance on creating and managing... More
Managing large accounts with a multitude of assets can be a daunting task. Account holders often have several users who require access to related assets. For example, fleet managers or regional supervisors who have purview over assets within a specific region or section of a company. Assets may be somewhat transient too, such as with subcontracted assets, and new assets may be added and other assets removed as contracts or staffing changes with... More
GSatTrack can allow you to leverage your hardware device's General Purpose I/O ports to maximum effectiveness. Configuration is fast, easy, and intuitive, bringing to light another reason to choose GSatTrack as your default tracking portal regardless of the hardware you currently employ.
General purpose input/output (GPIO) is a common feature across many models of tracking hardware. GPIOs allow users to decide how the physical ports or pins on a... More
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an enhanced method of securing your account with GSatTrack. Once configured and enabled, two forms of identification are then required to log into your account:
A trusted device
Requiring two different forms of identification – something you know and something in your possession – increases the security of your account, dramatically reducing the chances of an unauthorized party accessing it.... More
Tracking providers often highlight their versatility in getting data into their systems by accepting a wide variety of data formats and protocols from a multitude of devices. GSatTrack is no exception to this, allowing one to integrate hundreds of different device types under a single platform. The flip-side, however, to getting data into a singular system is often how one can get data back out of the system in order to integrate with legacy,... More

Alerts are a powerful feature of any tracking and reporting platform. Alerts allow users to be notified in real-time about specific conditions met for an asset or group of assets that is noteworthy in some way. And often alerts are used to indicate issues that require a real-world response whether immediate or otherwise – such as when a driver is operating a vehicle recklessly, a driver needs emergency assistance, or a vehicle is simply due...

There are many scenarios in which it is important to know when the relation-of-assets or groups-of-assets change with respect to one another. For example, if you have a convoy of trucks, shipping containers, or even people and need to know when one or more of those assets becomes separated from the rest. In the past this would normally require a portal operator monitoring the group of assets, but now GSatTrack supports automated alerts for when... More
For both small and large fleets of vehicles, efficient asset routing is an important factor in running a successful business. Ensuring drivers follow predefined routes is also often vital for several reasons; efficiency, safety and meeting regulatory requirements are just a few.
GSatTrack makes it easy to monitor asset routes with the ability to create a geofence from a driving directions route. There are a couple of ways to calculate a driving... More
