GPS Devices

What type of GPS devices do you offer?
We currently offer 3 GPS device variants.
OBD-II Port Device: This can be plugged into the vehicle using the OBD port. We include a 4G SIM cart with this which then provides GPS tracking.
Rugged GPS Hardwired Device: We send out an auto-electrician to hardwire this into your vehicle. This does the same thing. You might want this as if your car gets stolen it is not easy to pull it out making it more secure. We include a 4G SIM card with this too.
Battery Powered Device: This is more for tracking of trailers and/or equipment. This will send back a location of where the device is once a day. It can be activated to transmit the location much faster if the device or the trailer has been stolen. We include a 4G SIM card with this too. More information here
We use a Global Sim Card provider which automatically switches across to the best carrier in your area
The OBD-II port is usually located under the dashboard, beneath the steering wheel column.
Yes. You can connect the OBD-II port device yourself as it is very easy to just plug in. Our hardwire device however requires an auto-electrician to install the device into your vehicle.

Data and Security

How secure is Locate2u?
Locate2u has been designed with security built into its architecture from the ground up, ensuring that your data is completely secure, and only accessible to those you authorize access
We understand that the security and privacy of your location data is of the utmost performance. Locate2u has been designed with security in mind from the ground up, ensuring that only people you authorize have access to this data, and that when sharing your current location via our tracking page, those people can only see your location for the time that you authorize or as long as it’s suitable for them to see it (e.g. when providing a stop link showing your current location, once that stop is marked as complete or cancelled then they will no longer be able to see your location).
You also have control over when location data is collected by Locate2u. By default, our apps only collect your location data while you have active stops or links.
You can also see who actively has access to your current location from the links list in our mobile apps.
We store our data in Microsoft Azure data centres - currently in the US.
Your data remains in our system, but you can request its deletion as per GDPR provisions
You can adjust the settings to track your team during work hours only. You can enter specific hours per team member under the Team settings on the web platform.
