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 these drives. The app turns the phone into a tracking unit.

To see live positions, historical data, reports, or dispatch drivers use the Web console located at Mobile apps are not connected to each other. The mobile app is a tracker intended for the driver and not for the fleet manager. The app doesn’t anyhow connect to your vehicle.

Standard hardware GPS units

If you’re searching for a service to track a standard hardware GPS unit MyCarTrack supports all major hardware location trackers (GNSS) from established brands like Teltonika, Ruptela, Galileosky, and more. See here for more details.

How to start?

  1. The mobile device is collecting GPS positions and other telematics-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 partially process and minimize 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
