A Business News Daily Review

Product and service reviews are conducted independently by our editorial team, but we sometimes make money when you click on links. Learn more.

After conducting extensive research on GPS fleet tracking services, we recommend GPS Trackit as the GPS fleet tracking service with the best value in 2019. To understand how we selected our best picks, you can find our methodology, as well as a comprehensive list of GPS fleet tracking services, on our best picks page.

GPS Trackit's service is based on a month-to-month plan with no long-term contract, so businesses have the flexibility to work with GPS Trackit on a short-term basis. Another plus for businesses is that the pricing structure incentivizes GPS Trackit to provide you with the best service and support possible, since you're not locked into a long-term agreement. It also offers all its pricing information directly online, which shows it's a transparent company.

GPS Trackit offers a 30-day money-back guarantee: Businesses have a month to try out the service, and if they aren't satisfied, they'll get a full refund. GPS Trackit doesn't charge a cancellation fee either. This plan structure is unique in the GPS fleet tracking industry, but GPS Trackit's services are what separate it from competitors and establish it as a great value.

Here's why.

Software: The software has refresh times ranging from 30 seconds to a minute so you can stay informed about your fleet. It can be used on desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile devices, letting you check in on your fleet no matter where you are. Screenshots of GPS Trackit's software online show that it separates key metrics and data into dashboards for useful insight.

Hardware: GPS Trackit's hardware is more advanced than the simple OBD II port, plug-and-play hardware, but the company says its hardware is still easy to install and most customers elect to do it themselves. You can read more about the installation process and watch an instructional video on the hardware here.

Safety: GPS Trackit provides the standard safety features, including driver scorecards, safety alerts and advanced safety information. It tracks harsh braking and acceleration by your drivers as well as speeding and excessive idle time. You can set up reports and alerts to keep you up to date on vehicle maintenance and marquee safety events. You can even monitor in-vehicle temperature if you're transporting heat-sensitive items.

GPS Trackit also provides the following features:

  • Pro
    • GPS Trackit has a great online reputation.
    • This company provides robust features for a low cost.
  • Cons
    • GPS Trackit doesn't offer OBD II plug-and-play devices, which are the simplest to install.
