With 2020 officially here, a new decade has arrived. The previous decade saw tremendous advances in the world of satellite technology along with the unparalleled growth of the internet. Now, GPS trackers are more widespread than ever before. GPS trackers are going to play a pivotal role in 2020 as their uses continue to expand. Even though GPS trackers are always going to be used to locate positions, they can do so much more than this.

First, GPS trackers can be used to provide access to emergency assistance when required. For example, if someone has a car accident in an isolated area, GPS trackers can be used to relay someone's position to emergency dispatchers. This means that emergency services will be able to arrive on the scene more quickly than before. This might end up saving lives.

Second, GPS trackers are going to reduce the rate of vehicular theft. Anti-theft is quickly becoming one of the core uses of GPS trackers. When GPS tracking regularly installed on vehicles, anyone who has his or her car stolen will be able to locate it with ease. Already, reports are being issued of vehicles that have been recovered using GPS technology. Expect these reports to become more widespread in 2020.

While GPS trackers can be used to effectively locate someone's position, they also play a critical role in mapping and surveying. In the past, companies used to have to travel to a physical location, pull out a box full of equipment, and attempt to survey the area. Now, with GPS, this advanced equipment can take care of this task. This reduces time, cost, and stress.  

One of the core uses of GPS trackers in 2020 is going to be the tracking of various fleets. Many companies count on fleet tracking GPS systems to make sure their vehicles are following the assigned route. Making sure cars and trucks take the most efficient path saves time, fuel, and money. This can be used to reduce a company's overhead costs, improving the bottom line. This equipment can even be used to guarantee the safety of people who take taxis.

These are only a few of the many uses that GPS trackers are going to have in 2020. The role of these advanced systems is only going to continue to expand in the future. As technology develops, it will be interesting to see what new applications this technology is going to have.
