Frequently asked questions
How often are GPS coordinates collected?
The GPS update latency can vary based on the rate of change in vehicle speed and direction. Updates are typically received as fast as two seconds when the rate of change-of-speed or direction is high. The slowest update frequency is 30 seconds, assuming the vehicle is in a location with slower network connectivity. To get real-time GPS vehicle tracking updates, select Live View from the Fleet View Map.

What’s the difference between a vehicle’s location history and a driver’s location history?
Vehicle locations are recorded by the Motive Vehicle Gateway, which is equipped with a GPS chip inside the device. When the vehicle is in motion, GPS coordinates can be collected as fast as every two seconds. Drivers who connect to a Vehicle Gateway will have their locations match that of the vehicle. Drivers who use the Motive Driver App without a Vehicle Gateway will have locations updated from their smart devices.
Please review our Help Center articles to learn how to view both driver location history and vehicle location history.
Can I use GPS vehicle tracking even when a driver isn’t connected to the Vehicle Gateway?
Yes. The cellular-enabled Motive Vehicle Gateway constantly collects and sends GPS and vehicle data to the Motive Fleet Management Dashboard even if your driver isn’t connected to the Driver App.
How far back can I view location history?
All location history data for drivers and vehicles is stored on Motive servers and is backed up numerous times across multiple data centers. Fleet managers can access location history data for the duration that the driver was using the Motive App and for the duration that the Motive Vehicle Gateway was installed in the vehicle.
