How is GPS tracking system working?
GPS satellites send out coordinates to your GPS device (GPS tracker or Smartphone), then it transfers data to GPS-Trace Orange server. Our system handles this data and puts your location on the map.
Is your GPS tracking service really completely free?
Yes, we are not asking for any fee either for the services GPS-Trace Orange provides or for using Wialon GPS tracking software. Use of GPS satellites and signals is free for civilian use as well. The reason, we've started free GPS-Trace Orange tracking service is that after buying Wialon – a professional GPS vehicle tracking software for ourselves, we've understood that we're not using its possibilities for more than 5%. GPS-Trace Orange was inspired by projects such as Wikipedia or OpenStreetMap who provide information and services free of charge. We have decided to make this free GPS tracking service so that users all over the world would be able to record information about their location and share it with each other.
