Keep Your GPS Tracking Devices In Good Health

Your GPS vehicle tracking system should help you monitor your vehicle assets’ location and status. That’s a given. But GoldStar CMS takes GPS vehicle tracking even further, allowing you to monitor the health of your GPS tracking devices as well as the vehicles in which they’re installed.

GoldStar CMS vehicle tracking software serves up a wealth of useful, valuable information about each GPS tracking device installed in your vehicles, presented within an easy-to-read map-based user interface. This gives you instant, at-a-glance views of key device health indicators including GPS signal reception, cell phone coverage and battery life levels.

Having instant access to this information is key to being able to locate a vehicle when you need to. For instance, knowing that the battery life is low means that the GPS tracking device could stop working soon — leaving you unable to track and easily recover a vehicle if need be. This information allows you to alert the customer, let them know their battery life is low, and encourage them to come in for a new battery. Or let’s say the user interface tells you that the cell phone signal for a particular device is iffy. This could mean that the vehicle is in a very rural area, out of good cell phone range — something you definitely need to know.

GoldStar CMS’s Device Health Indicators also let you see when the GPS signal is strong or weak — an indication that the device wasn’t installed properly and isn’t connecting to GPS satellites. This information tells you that you need to check the device install and make the necessary adjustments.

With these Device Health Indicators at your fingertips, you’ll never have to wonder if a GPS tracking device is working the way it should. If there’s an issue with a device, you’ll be able to see what’s causing it without having to take the time to make a call to customer service. You’ll also be able to quickly take the right action to remedy the situation, such as call a vehicle in to replace a dead battery or re-install a device.

Device Health Indicators are the perfect example of how we’ve evolved GoldStar CMS into a proactive vehicle tracking solution that goes beyond basic GPS locators for cars to help you make smarter, faster decisions, save time and money, and focus your efforts on selling more vehicles to more customers.
