  • GPS Trackit is a low-cost solution with robust features.
  • There are no long-term contract requirements.
Thumbs Down Cons
  • Although there are plenty of third-party driver training apps you can connect, they lack full integration with the GPS Trackit platform, so they’re hard to personalize.
  • The GPS refresh rate of 60 seconds is slow compared with those of many competitors.
  • GPS Trackit is not accredited by the Better Business Bureau, although it does have an A+ rating with the agency.
Editor's Rating8.8/10

GPS Trackit is a competitively priced fleet management platform that stands out for numerous reasons, including flexible subscription plans and low per-vehicle costs. However, the company’s video telematics investment makes the platform exceptional. This budget-friendly provider boasts stellar video telematics functions that go beyond its more expensive competitors’ offerings. Its superior dashcam hardware impressed us, particularly the VidFleet AI+ model with built-in eye-tracking technology. We also like that you can livestream in high definition from up to four cameras with one vehicle rig. GPS Trackit is a superb choice for businesses interested in a video-based GPS fleet-tracking system.

Why We Chose GPS Trackit as Best for Video Telematics

GPS Trackit is a well-executed fleet tracking and management platform with an intuitive dashboard, competitive pricing, and a suite of functions that managers and administrators can master quickly. However, we were most impressed by the platform’s wide range of high-quality dashcam hardware options for stellar video telematics.

For example, the sophisticated VidFleet AI+ dashcam detects and records incidents on the road and in the cab using artificial intelligence and eye-tracking technology. We particularly like the splitter, which allows live transmission of up to four HD cameras at once – a unique offering in the market. GPS Trackit is hands down the best GPS fleet management service for businesses interested in using video to monitor and improve fleet operations.

In addition to remarkable hardware, GPS Trackit offers everything you’d expect from a fleet management solution; this includes features that address maintenance issues, fuel efficiency, vehicle health and driver safety. Users can also enjoy route optimization tools, customizable alerts and fuel card integration. With GPS Trackit, you get a GPS fleet tracking system with all the typical features, with the bonus of outstanding video telematics.

What We Like About GPS Trackit

  • GPS Trackit’s selection of dashcams and GPS tracking equipment is first class, with the unique ability to stream up to four cameras from one vehicle.
  • You can sign up for as little as 30 days with GPS Trackit or access cheaper prices on a 12-, 24- or 36-month deal.
  • GPS Trackit has excellent reporting features and a good online reputation.

What We Don’t Like About GPS Trackit

  • Although there are plenty of driver training plug-ins, they lack full integration with the GPS Trackit platform and are hard to customize.
  • The GPS refresh rate of 60 seconds is slow compared to many competitors.
  • GPS Trackit is not accredited by the Better Business Bureau, although it does have an A+ rating with the agency.

Ease of Use

The GPS Trackit desktop fleet manager interface is clear and crisp. The following options appear on the left side of the screen at all times, making for easy navigation:

  • Status: See current vehicle locations and status information in list form.
  • Maps: View current vehicle locations and status information in map form.
  • Reports: Prepare and schedule driver, vehicle, and fleet reports.
  • Video: Review video sent by Vidfleet cameras.
  • Manage: Create and assign drivers, and add locations and unit settings.
  • Behavior: View and run reports on general driver behavior and see driver scorecards.
  • Maintenance: Manage vehicle maintenance and driver necessities, including Department of Transport physicals or license renewals.
  • FSM: In the FSM (field service management) tab, dispatchers and field employees can communicate via the dashboard and app.
  • ELD: Manage all ELD (electronic logging device) functions within the platform.
  • Account: Create and edit users, roles and third-party contacts.
  • Marketplace: Access the platform’s third-party integrations. (Many will incur additional charges.)

When you select a tab, you’ll see the relevant information and functionality on the right side of the screen. We like how the screen sometimes splits into a third area to provide more granular information, so you don’t have to leave the page and navigate elsewhere.

GPS Trackit can be used on desktop and mobile devices, allowing fleet managers to check in from anywhere. The dashboard features maps, metrics and all necessary fleet management information. It also breaks down key analytics into simple graphs and digestible information, helping you gain relevant insights from your data.

Features

The following features stood out to us as exceptional:

Dashcam Hardware

GPS Trackit’s dashcams are among the best we’ve seen. All three options are excellent choices for businesses that need comprehensive, high-quality recordings of driver and vehicle behavior.

  • VidFleet One: This model features a 360-degree field of view with forward, driver and side views. The camera can detect tampering, geofences, sharp turns, speeding, acceleration, harsh braking and vehicle impact events. We like that the driver also has an event trigger button to press in an emergency. VidFleet One automatically uploads safety-related video footage and responds to fleet managers’ requests for videos. It comes with a 128-GB SD card that can be upgraded to 512 GB, a built-in microphone for audio recordings and a speaker for driver alerts.
  • VidFleet AI+: This model is similar to the VidFleet One device, but its forward view is 130 degrees at 4K Ultra HD (HDR), and the driver field of view is full HD. It also has an impressive eye-tracking camera that can detect driver cell phone use, seat belt wearing, smoking, drowsiness and distractedness.
  • Forward-facing: This camera has built-in audio recording and a 150-degree wide-angle lens. It has 128 GB of local storage.

While most GPS fleet tracking providers rely on a single dual-camera dashcam, we love that GPS Trackit’s multichannel splitter can record and transmit images from up to four HD cameras back to the dashboard. This means you can get, quite literally, a well-rounded view of driver behavior and vehicle events.

High-quality footage can be priceless if an accident occurs. At the very least, these video telematics are valuable for assessing where and how your drivers must improve, so you can save time and money. While virtually all vendors in this space facilitate some level of telematics, almost no others do it with the kind of dashcam hardware and video quality offered by GPS Trackit.

Safety Reports

We like that GPS Trackit provides multiple reports on your fleet. You can view drivers’ safety reports, vehicle health reports, onboard temperature reports, speed reports and other vehicle diagnostics indicators. The safety reporting features are impressive, which is one reason GPS Trackit is such a strong value pick – it doesn’t sacrifice quality at the expense of a reasonable price.

That said, you may want to check out our Motive review if you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck with regards to driver safety and accountability.

Fuel Performance

GPS Trackit can analyze and optimize your fleet’s routes for smarter fuel usage. You can view driver behavior through a fuel performance lens and gain insights to help reduce idle time for your fleet. It can also help coach drivers to be more fuel-efficient. Additionally, GPS Trackit provides a fuel card integration with Wex and syncs with ProMiles; now you can closely manage fuel spending, control access and monitor your fleet’s fuel consumption.

Maintenance

GPSTrackit can generate reports for vehicle diagnostics. It handles the basic management of crucial vehicle components, including airbags, brakes, coolant, cruise control, ignition, oil pressure and other marquee diagnostics. You can also troubleshoot engine issues and set alerts to manage preventive maintenance.

Alerts

GPS Trackit lets you set alerts for idling, speeding, ignition, maintenance reminders and driver behavior. Because the software works on mobile devices, you can receive notifications while on the go and manage your fleet from anywhere. We like that you can customize your alerts around driver behavior to stay updated on the most pertinent information about your fleet.

Pricing

GPS TrackIt offers a range of pricing and terms for its fleet management solutions to cater to different business needs. The company provides free hardware with a subscription deposit, ensuring a cost-effective start for businesses looking to implement GPS tracking solutions.

We like that the company offers a 30-day, money-back guarantee and a 90-day right agreement cancellation – another opportunity to exit your situation if the platform isn’t right for you.

GPS TrackIt offers a month-to-month subscription and three subscription plans for durations of 12, 24 and 36 months. Longer subscriptions benefit from pricing discounts.

The current pricing per vehicle is as follows:

Implementation/Onboarding

Your implementation process will involve the following:

  • Software: Like most GPS fleet management systems, the GPS Trackit platform is browser-based, so you don’t need to download software to your PC or Mac. Of course, you must download the iOS and Android mobile apps if you’d like mobile access.
  • Hardware: Much of the company’s equipment can be self-installed into your vehicles’ OBD-II ports. However, some technology may need hardwiring, particularly if you’re fitting multiple devices. While we like that the vendor will deploy installation teams for hands-on implementation assistance, this service will likely come at a price.
  • Integrations: GPS Trackit offers 60 third-party integrations in categories that include: accessories; asset tracking; cameras and advanced driver assistance systems; compliance; driver management; field services; insurance and warranties; maintenance and diagnostics; and telematics. If you’re interested in contrasting its integrations with other top solutions, read our Azuga review (48 third-party integrations) and our review of Samsara (over 200 integrations).
  • Open API: We like that GPS Trackit’s open API allows the easy and quick transfer of vehicle location, performance, and engine diagnostic data to your other business software. Its backbone is LTE, Google Maps and Amazon Web Services cloud technology, all of which provide quick data transfer and maximum uptime. The platform permits deep integration of its data across apps, but you may have to use a developer to take full advantage of this capability.

Customer Support

The GPS Trackit customer service team is available 24/7 by phone, email and the platform dashboard. We like how the company promotes its phone number right on the website’s contact page; many competitors we reviewed weren’t so forthcoming.

Additionally, an extensive online knowledge base contains hundreds of short, to-the-point articles demonstrating how to use the platform’s features and functions. Not every provider offers an online knowledge base with this level of depth. As you can see in our Force review, this vendor’s online resources pale in comparison to GPS Trackit’s.

Limitations

GPS Trackit’s GPS equipment has a 60-second refresh rate. This is slow, but not as slow as the up to five minutes the Teletrac Navman platform provides. For some companies, second-by-second information may not be necessary. However, if it’s important to you, GPS Trackit may not be the right service for your business.

Also, similar to ClearPathGPS, the GPS Trackit system lacks an integrated training component. Although there are six training apps, including CarriersEdge and ClearDrive, in the vendor’s app marketplace, these courses don’t provide customized training for an individual driver’s common infractions.

Methodology

In our search for the best GPS fleet management services, we investigated numerous options using a consistent set of criteria. Our goal is to help businesses choose a GPS fleet tracking system that fits their needs. Our examinations focused on pricing, hardware, desktop software and mobile apps, the setup process, ease of use, features, and refresh rates. We also considered customer support quality, integrations and scalability. GPS Trackit’s investment in video recordings, including its advanced hardware – together with its relatively low pricing – made it our top option for businesses seeking a GPS fleet-tracking solution that emphasizes video telematics.

FAQs

GPS Trackit's pricing costs as little as $12.99 per month for asset tracking and $24.99 per month for fleet tracking if you sign up for a three-year contract. Month-to-month pricing is higher. The company also offers 12-month and 24-month contracts.
You can track someone using a combination of GPS and cellular phone technology. The GPS pinpoints the person's location, and the cell phone signal sends that information back to you. This is the technology GPS Trackit uses for its fleet management system.
Yes. You can use a GPS tracker without a subscription, but there are limits. GPS tracking hardware relies on cell phone signals to return information about the location of a person or vehicle. You can buy hardware that includes a year's worth of free tracking, but to continue using the service after the free period has ended, you usually have to subscribe.

Bottom Line

We recommend GPS Trackit for:

  • Businesses interested in using high-tech video telematics to monitor and improve their fleets.
  • Companies that need to record from three or four different cameras per vehicle.
  • Businesses that don’t place a high importance on refresh rates.

We don’t recommend GPS Trackit for:

  • Businesses that need up-to-the-second fleet location updates.
  • Companies that want a system that automatically customizes training courses based on driving behavior.
