Eagle GPS (www.eaglegps.ca) is an asset tracking platform relying on wireless communication between GPS devices attached to an asset (e.g. car/truck/bicycle/container/etc.), therefore moving together. Eagle GPS Mobile facilitates the integration of mobile devices (cell phones, tablets, etc.) with Eagle GPS asset tracking platform (therefore without the need of a GPS tracking device), transmitting to the server (as configured through the app) the following: mobile device identifier (detected automatically), user ID, latitude, longitude, altitude, heading, speed (subject to mobile device capabilities, configuration and user permissions) and timestamp (UTC). That data is sent out only when initiated by user and the user can stop it anytime, either by pressing a button or by terminating the app. Depending on device, the transmission may continue in the background, when the application is hidden or minimized, even after logging out (a user name and password are required to use the application).
