Deployment optionsSaaS/OnPremise
Devices supported500+
White LabelYes
Business functionalityAdvanced
Free trial30 days or 5 devices

GpsGate is a full-featured platform for GPS tracking. In order to use it you have to download and install the software which is quite different from the rest of the platform that we examine in this article. To test the platform you can choose between 30-days free trial if you opt for Hosted (Saas) solution and 5 devices for free if you go with On-Premise option.

GpsGate offers its clients a ready-to-go solution for GPS tracking and is also available for businesses and private users. The features of the platform include all necessary functionality to run a GPS tracking business.

Administrator part includes tab for managing applications, users, devices, plugins, maps, reports, etc. The UI looks a bit outdated but is pretty functional. The minimal package for 5 devices starts from $49,75/month, the solution is not cheap and every additional device is $9,95/month.

GpsGate is a very functional solution but its design is a big issue because it is obsolete. These concerns were also voiced by company’s clients and the platform has plans for making it better but as it stands for now – the necessity to actually download and install the software and the low design friendliness and usability make GpsGate a solution quite hard to begin to use in comparison with the rest of the platforms.
