How selected tracking interval affects on GPS device's power consumption?

Quick answer:



Tracking intervals between 0-15 sec


- GPS device's power stays on and doesn't go into hibernation mode

- Position is updated continously with the selected tracking interval

- Has the highest power consumption



Tracking intervals between 16-60 sec


- Allowes GPS devices to hibernate if needed

- Prepares for upcoming position updates slightly ahead of time

- If wanting to balance tracking with power consumption, then 20sec tracking interval is the most optimal



Tracking intervals of 60+ sec


- Allowes GPS devices to hibernate if needed

- Position is calculated once every minute to keep the GPS fresh and travel-meter km counter updated
