When you are browsing GPS-Trace Orange from your home or office, you will most probably see that object is not moving, and current speed is 0 m/ph. If you have left your GPS tracker in your car and now you see it moving in the GPS-Trace Orange web-site, than it's probably stolen. If you are tracking your stolen vehicle, or any other object that is currently moving, like your child or relative, than information on the GPS-Trace Orange map would be updating just 1-2 seconds after receiving information from GPS tracker.

With Geofences you are able to make a virtual perimeter on geographic areas that have specific interest for you. The main reason to have Geofences is to control whether the units stays within it or not, so that when the geofencing unit enters or exits the area a notification is generated.
