Techniques for Dealing with Gps Jammers

The utilization of GPS technology has brought about a significant transformation in how companies handle their fleets of vehicles. With the ability to track vehicles in real time, managers can now stay informed, a critical advantage for businesses that heavily rely on transportation. Fleet GPS tracking has proven to be instrumental in improving productivity and efficiency.

The utilization of Azuga's cutting-edge tracking system brings forth a multitude of benefits, encompassing meticulous route planning and proficient fuel management. However, the presence of fleet GPS jammers can impede your progress. Let us delve further into the realm of GPS jammers and explore preventive measures to ensure uninterrupted fleet operations.

What are Fleet GPS Jammers?

Small transmitter devices known as GPS jammers enable drivers to obscure their location. These devices operate by transmitting radio signals on the identical frequency as your fleet GPS device, causing interference that disrupts the GPS device's ability to track the vehicles' positions. Despite being against the law, the user-friendly nature of GPS jammers results in numerous drivers ignoring the legal implications and using them.

How Do GPS Jammers Work?

A GPS jammer disrupts standard GPS signals. This disruption makes it difficult for devices to determine their location accurately. A driver can activate a GPS signal jammers with three easy steps:

  1. They plug the jammer into the auxiliary power outlet.
  2. The driver then places the unit near the fleet GPS tracker.
  3. When the driver activates the jammer, it creates an interference signal that lasts over a 5-10 meter radius of the fleet GPS signal.

Of course, you want to prevent your fleet drivers from using GPS jammers. Not only are they bad for your business, but they can also have serious consequences. They are illegal because they interfere with essential services like navigation and emergency communications.

Three Tips to Combat GPS Jammers
  • Tip #1: Privacy Mode Authorization
  • Some authorized drivers use their work vehicle for personal tasks, like taking it home or running errands during lunch breaks. In these situations, they might prefer not to be tracked. GPS tracking devices often have a "privacy mode" feature, allowing drivers and dispatchers to hide their location and activity temporarily. This feature helps protect their privacy without resorting to using GPS jammers.
  • Tip #2: Jamming Detection for Added Security
  • Advanced GPS tracking devices, like Azuga's Fleet tracking software, can detect GPS signal jamming. This feature safeguards against vehicle theft and aids in recovering stolen fleet vehicles.
  • Tip #3: Tracking Employees Using GPS Blockers
  • Even without jamming detection, you can still catch employees using GPS blockers. When an employee activates a GPS blocker, it shows as a missing or interrupted trip on the tracking map. Additionally, you can set up alerts for GPS signal errors to notify management when interference occurs. Using a blocker would likely draw more attention to their actions.
