TIPS: GPS on smartphone when enabled contributes to battery consumption. If this will be a concern, set the frequency interval to a greater value, so the phone will not constantly use the gps. the default is 60 sec (1 min).

Authors’s note: If you need help setting up a GPS server for personal use, drop me an email. jack2jackass@gmail.com.

Author’s Note: If you need a Global SIM best suited for such usage. I have been using SIM Cards from a company called Emnify (Goolge It!). They sell simcards over Amazon and has an easy to activate guide.
