GPS tracking services has only recently been opened out to general public for use by the United States military ever since they were using it as their primary navigation system. With a total of 27 satellites available, one can imagine the kind of accuracy that it provides in terms of data of positioning and that too in real time.
And this is where real time GPS vehicle tracking or tracking assets in the form of inventory is made possible as the GPS uses a system that only requires one to own a GPS receiver and have an unobstructed line of line of sight to four or more satellites at any given point of time in order to be able to calculate its co-ordinates accurately.
