Traccar GPS tracking software review
Traccar is a self-hosted and completely free and open-source GPS tracking system. It also includes a web-interface which allows users to view and configure devices online. The server version is written in Java, and can be used across most operating systems. There is also ongoing support to continue adding new devices as they are released onto the market.
When looking more closely at Traccar, we can see that it is a complete GPS tracking server setup. Also, it should be noted that there are no hosted options available at this time, which means that those looking to use this platform must be technologically savvy, have a support team, or outsource the hosting to a third party provider. While not a total deal breaker, this is something to consider when looking to set up a private GPS tracking software. This also means that there is no direct support from the company if an issue arises, and you are reliant on you own team or a third party to maintain and upgrade your server as necessary.
Traccar software advantages
For those willing to take the plunge into a self-hosted only option, Traccar does provide some great functionality for those looking to get into the business of asset tracking. It’s user interface is easy to use, but the downfall in that is also that it’s functionality can be limited at times and leaves users wanting more. A company that I have found that seems to balance ease of use, yet still retains optimum functionality would be navixy.com. There are also some other providers such as GPS Gate which seem to come close to striking this balance in some areas, but are often priced much higher and are still somewhat frustrating to use.
