How GPS works
GPS satellites circle the Earth twice a day in a precise orbit or path. Each satellite transmits a unique signal and orbital parameters that allow GPS devices (trackers) to decode and compute the precise location of the satellite. GPS receivers use this information and trilateration to calculate a user’s exact location. Essentially, the GPS receiver measures the distance to each satellite by the amount of time it takes to receive a transmitted signal. With distance measurements from a few more satellites, the receiver can determine a user’s position and display it electronically.The GPS location calculated by the GPS tracker device is then transmitted to a server connected to the Internet via a cellular network such as Vodafone, MTN or AT&T via 2g, 3g or 4g.Mobile phone apps installed on your phone read the location data from the Internet Server and display the location on a map on your mobile phone.

Once your position has been determined, the GPS unit can calculate other information, such as
Speed, Bearing, Track, Trip distance, Distance to destination, Altitude, Sunrise and sunset time,And more
