Top-of-the-line 4G LTE GPS Tracking Devices
Our GPS tracking devices just work. Plug them into the OBD-II port of each of your cars, vans, and light trucks, and that’s it. They do their job silently in the background, tracking your vehicles in real-time and sending exact location information to our platform via the 4G network.
Best of all, our GPS trackers are included with every Force Fleet Tracking subscription. No hardware to purchase outright, no connectivity fees, no activation fees. It’s as simple as it gets!
How our GPS tracking devices work
Your vehicles are rich sources of data. Force Fleet Tracking turns that data into insights you can use to run your business better.
Once plugged into the OBD-II port of your vehicle, our GPS trackers capture:
- GPS location — accurate to within 10 feet
- DTCs/Diagnostic Trouble Codes (aka “Check Engine Lights”)
- Fuel Level, Battery Level
- Driving behavior (harsh acceleration, rapid cornering, hard braking, etc.)
- Physical disturbances (if your vehicle is bumped, towed, broken into, or stolen)
These data points are continuously sent to our platform using the 4G cellular data network. You can access Force’s management platform from any device including your desktop and laptop or through our app on your tablet or smartphone.

GPS Tracking Device FAQs
Where is a GPS tracking device installed on a car?
A GPS tracking device is installed in the OBD port of a car (also known as an OBD-II port). These are commonly found on the driver’s side of the vehicle, under the steering wheel, above the gas and brake peddles. OBD-II ports are found in all vehicles sold in the US from 1996 and on—so unless your company fleet is comprised of classic cars or heavy-duty vehicles, your fleet will have the proper ports to support our GPS trackers.
OBD ports vary in color depending on the make and model of your company vehicles and may have a cover over the top of the port, so you might not be able to spot it right away.
Do GPS trackers still track if they’re unplugged?
If a GPS tracker is unplugged or becomes dislodged from an OBD-II port for whatever reason, it will stop tracking. Our GPS trackers rely on power of the vehicle to power the device, show where the vehicle is in real-time, and collect data such as driver behavior and vehicle health. The device will not transmit any information while it’s unplugged; however, Force’s GPS trackers are designed to send an unplugged alert to immediately notify the admin managing the fleet whenever a device is unplugged or disconnected from the vehicle. These notifications allow you to respond quickly to the issue and have the device put back in place promptly.
Enjoy a full range of GPS tracking features including full visibility into your vehicles in real-time, detailed trip history data, location alerts when a vehicle enters or exits a geofenced parameter, and live-tracking links you can share with your customers so they can see where their expected service vehicle is in real-time.Learn more.
