How MyCarTracks works?

MyCarTracks is a mobilebased tracking service where the MyCarTracks app is installed on the driver’s phone or tablet. It’s similar to sports trackers where you take your phone while running, but this time the app recognizes driving activity and records journeys. It’s not working as a standard hardware GPS unit that must be hidden in the vehicle. The app turns the phone into the tracking unit, it detects when the vehicle is moving and records all the movements.

To watch driver positions use the Web console located at mycartracks.com. Mobile apps are not connected to each other. The mobile app is a tracker intended for the driver and not for the fleet owner. The app doesn’t anyhow connect to your vehicle.

If you don’t know how to start, or you have the mobile app but it’s not connected to the web console go to the sign-up page and create your web account. The initial welcome wizard will help you to connect.

If you have a bigger fleet use our fleet setup tool, it’s really easy to set up the fleet. You can use an Account ID that can be provided to a driver and after he installs the app and enters this code everything is ready to go. He doesn’t have to do anything else.

All tracked data like GPS positions, mileage data, or IoT sensors data are sent using your existing data plan (3G, 4G/LTE) or Wi-Fi to mycartracks.com where they are securely stored. With the Web App console on mycartracks.com, you can view all your recorded data in an easy-to-use way, generate reports for tax, payments, or billing purposes, analyze and improve fleet performance and manage your fleet with the job dispatch.

  1. The mobile device is collecting GPS positions and other mileage related data.
  2. All recorded data are sent as packet data (Wi-Fi, GSM, etc.) from the mobile device to MyCarTracks Cloud where they are securely stored. Our unique algorithms are partially processing and minimizing data on your mobile device and therefore the overall mobile data consumption is only 1MB per 1000 – 3000 km (621 – 1864 miles). This makes the real-time localization also faster than with a traditional unit.
  3. You can access your data through PC, tablet, or phone at www.mycartracks.com.
