GPS stands for Global Positioning System, a satellite-based navigation network that provides location and time information to nearly anywhere in the world. The technology itself is remarkably sophisticated, but the concept is simple:

When a vehicle, asset, or individual is equipped with a GPS tracking device, its location, movements, environment, and behaviors are collected and communicated to Earth-orbiting satellites, all via a cellular network.

Once collected, all of this data is transmitted over the cellular network to RACO GPS?s data center, where we gather and process it on our secure servers.

We convert the transmitted latitude and longitude data into clearly readable addresses and locations, translating it into useful information that we then deliver to your computer or mobile device.

Since this entire process takes place over the course of mere seconds, you can use the information you receive about your vehicles, assets, or employees to make real-time decisions, maximize efficiency and service, and reduce downtime.
