GPS Tracking 

DPL Telematics
DPL Telematics offers a combination of compact GPS tracking and integrated OBDII to increase driver safety and productivity while reducing idling and fleet costs. The small GPS unit has no external wiring or antenna and plugs into the existing OBDII port of most vehicles, installing in seconds. OBDII data empowers fleet owners to remotely track and receive safety alerts such as air bag deployments, driving without the seatbelt, harsh braking, rapid acceleration, speeding and towing. Automatic vehicle status and location updates are a standard feature that create a daily driver log of activity and can be mapped as a "bread crumb trail." ODBII also monitors the vehicle's supported temperatures, pressures and diagnostic fault codes, which are wirelessly transmitted and archived on the software for remote asset diagnosis. The unit monitors the 11 vehicle emission system components, eliminating smog retesting since any failing system will be proactively identified and can be corrected prior to the emissions test. 800/897-8093; www.dpltel.com.
