Linxup GPS Tracking Solutions: How It Works

Let's take a closer look at the science behind GPS Tracking Solutions and the Global Positioning System technology that powers the tracking solutions. Find out how your Linxup GPS tracker technology works.

GPS Technology in Action

GPS is powered by a worldwide radio navigation system made up of 24 satellites above the Earth, beaming signals to ground stations, which enables microwave signals to communicate with your GPS device and calculate your vehicle's speed, travel route, and more. The latest Linxup GPS Tracking Solutions and Devices operate on the 4G network.
