Memphis Police Using GPS Tracking to Fight Domestic Violence
Memphis is in investing $900-thousand dollars in the fight against domestic violence. The funds will be used to purchase around 800 tracking devices to help the police track offenders and protect would-be or former victims. With around 18-percent of the city’s murders attributed to domestic violence, the hope is that the use of GPS tracking devices will reduce the overall number of homicides in the city.
GPS Tracking Reveals Seagull Habits
We’re always looking for unusual and creative use of GPS tracking devices, and happened across this. A British study utilized GPS trackers and GPS tracking software to monitor the movement of seagulls in St. Ives resort. What’s interesting is that the results showed that all 4 seagulls tracked had very different habits– with some flying out to sea, and others foraging for food on nearby farmland. The tracking devices tracked the seagulls for a combined total of more than 20,000 miles.
Air Force Fixes Control System for GPS III
Next year, and the launch of the first of more than 30 GPS III satellites marks the beginning of GPS III. The new satellites boast increased security and better tracking. Perhaps one of the most impressive features is “spot beaming”, a way of creating a localized area of increased power for military use.

If you have ever driven in a strange city or mapped a route to an unfamiliar area, you already know how valuable GPS technology, particularly 3G tracking, can be. A GPS device can provide real-time maps, up-to-the-minute information on traffic jams and road construction and give you turn-by-turn directions starting right from your driveway.
Delivery companies use GPS technology in a number of different ways, and these days even the smallest delivery firms can afford to outfit their vehicles with GPS trackers and GPS tracking software. Many firms use their GPS trackers to keep tabs on their workers and make sure the routes they are using are the most efficient. 3G GPS tracking technology can quantify everything from the number of miles driven to the fuel efficiency of the delivery vehicle to the time the driver spends on each delivery.
Company managers then use that information to make changes that will save them money. Something as simple as changing the delivery routes to avoid road construction can reduce idle time, improve fuel economy and increase the number of packages each driver delivers each day.
The use of GPS tracking technology also allows company managers to analyze vast stores of data. Going through reams of data by hand is next to impossible, but computer technology makes crunching the numbers and developing more efficient routes fast and easy.
The world of delivery has been changing rapidly, and the number of changes is only expected to grow in the future. Consumer expectations and the rise of next-day and same-day delivery are two trends that are not likely to go away, and that makes the use of GPS technology even more valuable. If your company is not yet using GPS trackers, you may want to add these simple devices to your fleet and see how they can improve your business and your bottom line.
No matter where you live, garbage removal is an essential service. Not only is waste management important for ascetic purposes, but it is a health issue as well. Uncollected trash attracts rodents, promotes illness and causes a host of other problems. If you run a waste management company, you are providing a vital public service to the people and businesses in your area.
Doing such an important job as efficiently as possible is essential. If the garbage goes uncollected for even a day, problems will quickly arise. That is why so many waste management companies are incorporating GPS fleet tracking software into all their new trucks and retrofitting their old equipment to work with the new technology.
Once the GPS tracking software is in place, company managers can see exactly where each truck is on its route. They can reroute trucks as needed and choose the most efficient routes for their drivers. They can also make sure their drivers are working at maximum efficiency and that they are sticking to their assigned schedules and routes.
GPS technology can help waste management companies in another important way. Construction delays and issues with roadway maintenance may seem like small problems, but having a garbage truck stuck in traffic for 5 minutes could throw off the entire route for the rest of the day. With the GPS fleet tracking software in place, company owners can use mapping technology to see problem spots and route around them.
Safety is another important benefit of GPS fleet tracking software. Garbage trucks are large and unwieldy, and that makes hiring safe drivers and training them properly even more important. Fleet tracking technology allows company supervisors to make sure drivers are operating their vehicles safely and responsibly.
Running a waste management company is not easy, but it is important. Whether you run a small string of trucks or a statewide fleet, incorporating GPS fleet tracking software into your business can provide a host of benefits for you and your customers.
GPS tracking software is used by a number of different businesses, but some businesses are able to benefit from its use even more than others. The ones that stand to enjoy the biggest gains from the software include those that operate a large fleet of vehicles on a daily basis. For instance, those that operate mail delivery vehicles as well as corporations that provide company vehicles can benefit tremendously. In addition, it is used by many local, state and even federal agencies, as several municipalities use it for the vehicles operated by first responders such as fire, paramedics and police.
More specifically, mail delivery companies use it to ensure that their drivers are on the correct routes and that they are operating the vehicles as efficiently as they possibly can. The entire idea is to get the packages to the customers as quickly as possible while simultaneously minimizing the amount of fuel that is consumed throughout the day. The same is basically true for those companies that provide vehicles for their employees, although it may not seem as pertinent at all times. When it comes to municipalities that use the software, there are a number of potential benefits. First responders have to get wherever they are going as quickly as they possibly can. Therefore, they have to choose the right course of travel at all times. It also allows dispatchers to know exactly where they are in case they find themselves in trouble and in need of immediate assistance.
When the software is used, everybody has the opportunity to benefit. Employees are kept safer, knowing that they can be rescued if they have a mechanical problem with the vehicle. Companies have the chance to save money because automobiles are driven fewer miles and less money is required to pay for maintenance and fuel. The company then has more money to pay employees better wages or provide more comprehensive benefits packages. When it comes to the specific types of businesses that have been mentioned, the benefits are often the difference between success and failure.
The HVAC industry has been growing by leaps and bounds, but not without its challenges. Running an HVAC company requires dedication and commitment, along with training and expertise. The owners of such companies much wear many hats and perform many tasks, from keeping track of the trucks on the road to fielding calls from happy (and unhappy) customers.
That is why so many HVAC company owners have been installing GPS tracking systems and seeing the benefits firsthand.
One of the biggest benefits of GPS tracking software for the HVAC industry is the ability to manage an entire fleet and an entire workforce from afar -without having to go out on jobs or become a micromanager. The ability to manage a workforce and vehicle fleet remotely frees the owners and managers up for more important tasks and allows them to serve the customer better.
In fact, GPS tracking software can actually improve customer service, so it may be able to help with disgruntled customers. If a truck is late getting to a job, the owner can tell exactly where it is and reassure the customer that help is on the way.
In addition to all these benefits, GPS tracking software can help in another important way. Theft is always a problem for owners of HVAC equipment – all that expensive equipment and valuable materials are tempting targets for thieves, especially when the trucks are parked and unattended.
Installing GPS tracking technology in each truck makes it easier for the police to track a stolen vehicle and recover the expensive tools and materials. This benefit alone could more than pay for the cost of installing the tracking technology and software.
With so many benefits, it is easy to see why so many HVAC company owners are upgrading their fleets with GPS tracking technology and software. From improved security and better time management to superior customer service and reporting capabilities, GPS software provides a number of valuable benefits to the HVAC industry.
A bill proposing a pilot GPS tracking program for state vehicles is moving through the Michigan state legislature. If approved, the bill would approve a pilot program for approximately a hundred of the state’s vehicles. If the pilot program were proven to be successful, GPS tracking could then be installed on all state vehicles at an approximate annual cost ranging from $500K to over $1M. The bill was drafted in part due to suspected misuse of state time, vehicles, and resources, including one case where state time and vehicle privileges were abuse on 84 occasions. If enacted, officials expect the vehicle tracking devices and GPS tracking software to save fuel, eliminate mileage reporting, and assist in monitoring employees.

A New Mexico school district is investigating a claim made by a parent that a district school bus was speeding when it passed her on a local highway. School district officials said all buses in the district have GPS tracking devices installed, and with the use of GPS tracking software it is possible to pinpoint the speed and location of any bus at any time. While the district did not disclose what details were revealed via GPS tracking, they cited that the speeding bus incident will be handled internally as a personnel matter. GPS tracking software also has been used in the past to protect drivers from false accusations.
