Networkfleet Announces New Low Cost GPS Vehicle Tracking System
Rugged, automotive-grade device works with Networkfleet full-featured Web-based application
Networkfleet, Inc. announces the soon to be available Networkfleet 4200, a low cost GPS vehicle tracking system for commercial and government fleets. The new system is designed for fleets that need reliable location tracking, but do not require the patented remote engine diagnostics offered by the Networkfleet 3500 wireless fleet management system. Both products use the same full-featured, easy-to-use Web-based application to provide access to vehicle information.
The Networkfleet 4200 gives fleets a vehicle tracking system that includes a rugged, automotive-grade device backed by Networkfleet's full service and support. Designed by Networkfleet's experienced telematics engineering group and built in the U.S., the 4200 is tamper evident and hermetically sealed, allowing it to withstand harsh environments. The 4200 works on all vehicles and is built to pass SAE J1455 certification, an industry standard for electronic equipment design in heavy-duty vehicles.
"At Networkfleet, we want to provide our customers with options that will meet their needs. We designed the 4200 for those who want a lower cost GPS solution, but prefer to purchase it from a leading provider that backs up their products with service, support, and stability for the long term," said Keith Schneider, president of Networkfleet. "With the addition of the 4200 product, government and commercial fleets of any size can find a Networkfleet solution that works best for their operations."
The Networkfleet 4200 will be available for purchase immediately following the completion of external network certification processes, which are estimated to be finalized in the middle of the third quarter of 2009.
