How Does GPS Tracking Work?

GPS stands for Global Positioning Satellite. In a nutshell, there are two components needed for GPS tracking: satellites and a GPS receiver or tracking device. There are 27 GPS satellites orbiting the Earth. Each satellite weighs around 3,000 to 4,000 pounds and is over 12,000 miles away! The tracking device sends a signal to several of these satellites and then calculates the distance to each of them. This method is called triangulation, and it can pinpoint your exact location on Earth with amazing accuracy.
