GPS Connect launches Web Location Tracking application for Mobile Devices

GPS Connect's advanced Web Location Tracking application is a key part of GPS Connect location tracking service and provides customers with an industry leading set of real-time and historical location tracking functions.

In order to use GPS Connect Web Location Tracking one needs a computer connected to the Internet and running one of the modern Internet browsers (Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 3+, Opera 9+, Safari 3+, or Chrome).

But what if you are on the road and have no access to a computer or the Internet? Does that mean that you would not be able to monitor locations of your tracking devices carried by ones you worry about or installed on your vehicles or mobile objects? It could have been a case before but not anymore since GPS Connect released a new Web Location Tracking for Mobile devices.

Mobile Location Tracking

Web location tracking for Mobile devices (or Mobile Location Tracking) is a web application intended to be accessed from a mobile device capable of Internet browsing via cellular network or by other means of communication (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.). GPS Connect Mobile Location Tracking works on smart phones (Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, iPhone, Nokia, etc.) and regular cell phones with web browsing capabilities (Mobile location tracking requires that device's Internet browser supports XHTML or HTML).
