Mapon Mobile Tracker – turn your phone into a GPS tracking device

Mapon mobile tracker is a convenient solution that allows you to use basic GPS tracking and Mapon system features without the need to buy additional tracking devices. It is a perfect solution for families and also for businesses who need to solve specific problems.   Mapon mobile tracker can be used in many cases, here are few of the most popular ones that use the benefits of GPS tracking: 1) See your kids’ location and find out whether they are already on their way home 2) Follow your friends and family members location during their hiking trips or competitions. 3) See whether your kid has visited hobby class or went to friends instead. Receive notifications when your kids arrive or leave school or other territory specified by you.

Review your fleet routes within specific region and time interval

Mapon has developed a new report which displays historical data about all vehicles of the fleet that were in a specific location and during a specific period of time. The territory and time period can be easily customized so this report can be used for various fleet data analysis. The solution was initially developed for Riga City Municipal Police and has many applications. The police needed a quick and easy solution that would allow them to find out whether their vehicles had done patrolling in specific areas. Another problem was the processing of citizen complaints about police vehicles in specific locations and time without having information about police vehicle license plate. Requirements for these problems lead to a new report in Mapon system which can be used to track down all vehicles that have been within a specific region in a specific time interval. The usage is as simple as drawing a region on a map, selecting a date/time range and reviewing which vehicles have visited this region during the specified time period.
