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 31 satellites above the Earth, beaming signals to ground stations, which enables communication with your GPS device and calculates your vehicle's speed, travel route, and more. The latest Linxup GPS Tracking Solutions and Devices operate on the 4G network.

how gps tracking works
device gets location information from satellites


A GPS device, connected to a vehicle, asset, etc., receives radio signals from GPS satellites and calculates its exact location.

gps device transmits cellular data


The GPS device then transmits its coordinates, movement and speed to a cellular tower. (If not in cell range, the device stores the data, and sends when a connection is re-established.)

cellular data is forwarded to servers


The information is forwarded to the Linxup servers, where we analyze the location and movement data.

We then provide location, history, reports, alerts, and so much more on our easy to use, best-in-class customer portal.
