Sim Based Tracking System

Truckia offer sim based fleet tracking software solution that is designed to track the fleet operations on different locations coordinates obtained from the driver’s mobile network.

Standout features beyond the traditional vehicle tracking solution include:

Confirmation of the consent by drivers to be able to track only during the trip without violating confidentiality.

Cost-effective as it does not require capital expenditures on equipment/devices/phones.

Better visibility for the aggregate / rental market.

how its works

1. Select the vehicle you are interested in.

2. Add mobile number. for each of these vehicles. Select an operator. You’re done. You can now view your assets in real-time. However, keep in mind that the person holding the SIM card must consent to its tracking after the tracking and broadcasting are completed within 2-3 hours.

What is GSM or Sim based vehicle tracker?

Recent advances in GSM vehicle tracking software have enabled this technology to replace GPS alternatives as to the most suitable solution for many scenarios. Even in systems that collect location data via GPS, GSM vehicle tracking can transmit important information such as location, heading, speed, idle, engine start and stop times and much more.

What are the key differences between GSM and GPS tracking?

The development of mobile location technology focuses on two key technologies: the global system for mobile systems and the global positioning system. GSM is used to send and collect data from central units through data calls. The GPS receives position information from the satellite but is unable to contact the central unit.

Technology used in GSM & GPS

GPS receivers detect signals transmitted by satellites and determine your exact location. In contrast, GSM technology uses signal strength and triangulation of base stations to determine the position of something. There are many GPS-based electronic devices, while GSM technology is mainly used in mobile phones. You can use each technology as an automated utility and implement it in secondary devices as personal data assistants.


The availability of signals for positioning and positioning accuracy constitutes a fundamental difference between GPS and GSM. Generally, GPS devices require a clear view of the sky, although you can get reliable information with great accuracy even in the presence of obstacles. However, GPS devices will have problems if they are surrounded by tall buildings. In contrast, GSM uses locally isolated base stations for positioning in tunnels and crowded places where GPS cannot find information. If there are no base stations, GSM devices cannot determine the location..

Mobile Tracking

GPS is the latest in mobile tracking technology. It can track the location of a mobile device or phone in real time using digital maps such as Google maps and compatible apps, and is mainly used in smartphones. GSM, on the other hand, triangulates the location of a cell phone in the network using the phone’s international mobile equipment identifier or IMEI number.


If your phone has a GPS indicator, it should be at the top to check using real GPS satellites. If your phone doesn’t have a GPS chip and it’s off, GSM localization tests the situation using three locations close to GSM. The GSM distribution system provides general status and stores the phone as well, but cannot provide accurate status information.
