Best GPS Devices for Your Small Business

As a small business, finding ways to protect your assets is always a worthwhile investment. However, if you're thinking about using GPS technology to manage, monitor, and protect your property, it can certainly be overwhelming to figure out where to start. To help you in your search for the best GPS trackers for small businesses, here's a look at our top picks. 

Why Should Small Businesses Use GPS Trackers to Protect Their Property?

A GPS device can help your business keep tabs on your vehicles, boats, golf carts, specialty equipment, and valuable shipments, whether they're in storage or on the move. The possibilities are near endless, but what if you're on the fence about investing in GPS technology?

The key benefits of using GPS to manage and protect your property include: 

  • Real-time location tracking helps you monitor usage, which can help you keep tabs on employee performance and even prevent unauthorized use. 
  • Geofence alerts tell you when and if an asset leaves your property, immediately alerting you to potential theft
  • Speed alerts help you recognize and penalize unsafe operations, allowing you to reprimand employees before it turns dangerous. 
  • Continuous location updates make it easier to recover lost or stolen property, which means less interruption to your business.
  • The presence of GPS trackers can reduce your insurance premiums and deter employees and customers from misusing your equipment. 

Now that you know the benefits of using GPS trackers for your business, the next step is finding the most cost-effective solution.

Best GPS Trackers for Small Businesses 

As a small business, the last thing you want to do is invest in a set of GPS units only for them to break or not deliver on all the features you require. Here's a look at the best GPS trackers for small businesses that are built for durability. 

Best GPS Unit for a Vehicle's OBD-II Port 

Whether you're trying to track a company car or an entire fleet of trucks, finding a unit that's small, capable, and out of the way is essential to getting the most out of your GPS investment. When it comes to vehicle tracking, nothing beats a GPS unit that plugs into the OBD-II port, which is generally located somewhere under the dash near the pedals. This port is easy enough to access to install the unit but somewhat out of sight and out of mind for your drivers and any unauthorized individual who may find their way into the cabin. 

The key thing when choosing a GPS unit for your OBD-II port is that it needs to draw power from that port, meaning you don't need to rely on batteries or run additional wires. With LandAirSea's Sync 4G LTE GPS unit, it's a simple plug-and-go operation that can be set up in your vehicles in mere minutes. Some of its features include:

  • Geofence alerts tell you if the vehicle leaves your set boundaries
  • Alerts to inform you when the vehicle arrives or departs in a particular zone
  • Speed alerts warn you of unsafe driving behavior 
  • Access to historical data supports performance reviews and claims 
  • No batteries or charging required 
  • Affordable subscription starts at $8.95/month for 4G LTE tracking
  • No activation fee

If you're looking for a compact, easy-to-set-up GPS device that's fast and reliable, look no further. Learn more about this device here

Best Compact Battery-Powered GPS Unit

Sometimes, plugging into a power source just isn't feasible, especially if you're trying to track a smaller asset like a critical shipment. When you want a small, discreet unit that you can simply charge up and use, the LandAirSea 54 with ShareSpot should be your first choice. This unit was designed to be durable enough to withstand harsh conditions without bringing attention to its presence.

With a unit like this, you can always toss it into a box or bag for easy tracking, but it also comes with a powerful internal magnet to easily adhere to most assets and equipment without needing a mount. The other features of this GPS unit include:

  • Waterproof and dustproof design
  • Track location in real time using the LAS app or website
  • Turn off the LED lights for ultra-discreet operation
  • Battery life lasts 1–3 weeks, depending on your chosen location update frequency
  • On low power mode, the battery can last up to six months
  • Set alerts for boundaries, speed, and low battery
  • Operates on the 4G LTE network or using satellite 
  • An affordable monthly subscription based on usage

Best GPS Unit With Extended Battery Life

We designed this tracker to last as long as possible without compromising on location accuracy or features.

With this GPS unit, you can expect the following:
