Is live GPS tracking really “live?”

The standard update frequency for GPS Insight tracking is 2 minutes but the frequency can be adjusted to be more or less frequent based on your business needs. Though consumer tracking software such as Google Maps or Waze can provide an approximation of location in real-time, the industry standard for fleet GPS tracking is to update at intervals of between 2 and 5 minutes. 

Asset tracking updates occur less frequently than those of vehicle tracking, helping to keep the costs of asset tracking low. Update rates for assets are measured as pings (on-demand communication) instead of by time. Lower ping rates amount to lower costs.
