GPS system is used to track the movement of something like a vehicle or even human beings but in actual we are tracking the movement of GPS Device which is fitted / carried by the vehicle or humans .

         

Each GPS device has an inbuilt GPS receiver which is connected with GPS Satellite through which device gets the GPS coordinates of the location . 

The device also have a GSM module through which device can communicates over GPRS , this GPRS is the communication medium by means of which device sends the data to the Data servers  for storage and further processing of Data.
