GPS Trackers for Cars
The use of GPS car trackers is becoming increasingly widespread. While such devices are frequently used by haulage companies to keep tabs on their goods vehicles, they are also ideal for businesses with employees who use company cars for work-related purposes. Rental car companies can also benefit from installing car tracking devices into their fleet of vehicles to ensure that their customers are adhering to the prescribed company policies and road laws.
Nevertheless, car trackers are not exclusively used for commercial purposes — individual car owners may choose to have a device installed into their own private vehicle with the aim of reducing fuel costs, emissions and time spent on the road.

UK Car Tracking Devices
Today, car tracking devices are commonly used for both private and commercial purposes across the UK. If you’re a business using car tracking devices, you must ensure that your drivers or employees are aware that they are being tracked while using the vehicle. Furthermore, employees or drivers may only be tracked during working hours and must provide written consent.
This is because the data collected by GPS devices is considered to be personal data, which must be handled according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This European law states that personal data cannot be collected and used without permission and failure to comply is a criminal offense that may result in a hefty fine.

GPS Tracking for Cars
Installing a car tracker into your vehicle can bring a whole host of benefits. Firstly, GPS systems for cars enable you to plan your journeys more effectively and determine not only the shortest routes but the fastest ones too. GPS trackers also give you the ability to pinpoint the whereabouts of your car at lightning speed and minimise the risk of it being stolen or falling into the wrong hands. On top of this, owning a car tracking system means that you’re always ahead of the game when it comes to vehicle maintenance. You’ll be alerted when your car is due for a service or MOT, which in turn reduces the likelihood of unforeseen repairs and their associated costs.
If you’re a business owner with cars that are driven by your employees, a tracking device is a reliable way of monitoring their driver behaviour and ensuring that they are following the necessary company procedures and road laws. You can set up alerts so that you’ll be notified each time the driver commits any non-compliant behaviour, such as sudden braking or speeding.

Frequently asked questions
Broadly speaking, telematics brings together two sciences — telecommunications and informatics. Today, the term is most often used to refer to telematics devices that are used in commercial vehicles, including trucks and cars. These devices garner and transmit data relating to the use and maintenance requirements of the vehicle.
A GPS tracker is a portable device that uses a network of satellites called the Global Positioning System to determine the geographic location and monitor the movements of cars, trucks and other such vehicles.
Standard car tracking devices are available to buy from a large number of suppliers, both on and offline. To find out more about FleetGO car tracking and purchase an intelligent, tailor-made solution, contact us today.
Car manufacturers, telematics companies, and car insurers all require telematics in order to have a better understanding of how cars are being used.
In recent times, telematics have been used for multiple purposes such as:
- To allow insurance companies to set premiums based on a driver’s driving habits
- To provide feedback on the performance of a vehicle
- To provide technical assistance when needed.
Telematics has many benefits over the traditional model. It offers connectivity, security, and convenience to drivers.
Telematics is also known as the “Internet of things” because it allows for internet access from a vehicle. The system can be used to allow access to a driver’s location, vehicle speed, fuel level and so on. This benefits police forces in locating stolen vehicles or drivers who go past their speed limit or people who don’t stop at a red light.
The policy makers of a country have a big say in how telematics should be used in cars. They use the power of law to ensure that no one is using telematics for malicious purposes.
The government is required to regulate who can collect data from the vehicles and what kind of data. The law also determines what kind of data can be accessed by various agencies. For example, the location data of vehicles have been regulated for over a decade now and only access to this data is granted on certain circumstances.
With telematics, car insurance companies can offer more accurate pricing to drivers based on their driving habits. It also helps the driver to be more aware of their own habits and provides specific feedback that can help them to improve.
