In the case where vehicles take detours, the service automatically sends alerts to the companies informing them of the new route, which is quite useful especially for companies that distribute water, food and petroleum.
To activate this service, a GSM modem has to be installed in the vehicle integrated with a GPS receiver, which can also be useful in the unfortunate cases of theft. In that case, an SMS is sent to the device with the user’s information and secret code, and in turn the device activates the service by accurately locating the vehicle and sending an SMS with its location.
