The most crucial step in determining which GPS tracking device is most beneficial for you personally is by wondering one question:


Do I want (or need) real-time location information?


Real-time location information means if you need to find out where your tracker reaches any given moment. This question is very important, because it'll decide which of the 2 kinds of GPS trackers to get.


You will find two kinds of GPS devices: REAL-TIME/Active GPS trackers and Historical/Passive GPS loggers.


If YES, then the GPS Real-Time/Active Tracker is probably best fitted to your needs.


If NO, then the GPS Historical/Passive Logger is more likely that which you need.


Below is just a summary of the differences between the 2 types:


Real-Time/Active Tracking GPS Trackers:


Location Updates - Every 10 seconds to 5 minutes, depending on model

Map Interface - Google Maps or Bing Maps

Device Cost - Varies, but usually slightly higher priced than passive loggers

Monthly Fees - Yes, cost varies by provider

Contract Required - Sometimes. Not all providers require this, however, many do.

Detailed Driving History Reports - Yes, you are able to save and print these.

Live Speed Alerts - Yes, get notified if your youngster or vehicle exceeds a specific speed

Geofencing/Safe Zones Alerts - Yes, get notified if your youngster or vehicle enters or exits a specific area

Device Power - Both rechargeable battery and hardwired vehicle models available

Historical/Passive GPS Loggers:


Location Updates - N/A, data is retrieved when you plug the device into your PC

Map Interface - Google Maps or Bing Maps

Device Cost - Varies, but usually slightly less expensive than passive loggers

Monthly Fees - No fees, just the one-time cost of the machine

Contract Required - No, you will find no contracts because all you spend is the device cost

Detailed Driving History Reports - Yes, you are able to save and print reports

Live Speed Alerts - No, real-time information is not available with historical loggers

Geofencing/Safe Zones Alerts - No, real-time information is not available with historical loggers

There's without doubt that owning a real-time active tracker is higher priced than the usual GPS logger. But if you want real-time location information, then the real-time active tracker is the better method to accomplish this.
