TRACKER launches Tracker Connect new plug & play telematics device


TRACKER (part of the Tantalum Corporation), continues to meet the demands of its customers, with the launch of TRACKER Connect, its plug and play telematics device from just £9.95 a month. The easy to self-install device, connects to the vehicle’s on-board diagnostic (OBD) port, eliminating installation costs. It provides fleet managers real-time driver and vehicle information, to improve fleet efficiency, saving time, fuel and money, whilst boosting customer satisfaction.  It also has the added benefit of TRACKER’s crash detection technology for instant and accurate accident reporting as well as the ability to read vehicle diagnostic direct from source.

Users can access driver and vehicle data quickly, at any time, in real time, via the secure TRACKER Connect website.  Drawing upon TRACKER’s award winning fleet telematics solutions, the website provides a reporting dashboard that can be customised to the specific needs of customers.   Customers can monitor driver behaviour, view maps and schedule detailed reports.  Driving style data helps firms reduce the risk of driver accidents and vehicle repair costs, as well as enhancing Duty of Care by encouraging safer driving.

The TRACKER Connect crash detection technology helps fleet managers save time and insurance costs with instant accident notification.   The technology’s intelligence can distinguish between bumps and kerbs and actual impacts, with reports provided on impacts via email and screen alerts.  These alerts enable fleet managers to quickly ascertain the safety of the driver and condition of the vehicle.

Should a vehicle develop a fault, data will be read via the TRACKER Connect device connected to the vehicle’s OBD and diagnostic information decoded and reported back to the website.   By acting quickly to critical or impending problems, users can reduce maintenance costs and help boost profits. In addition, automatic alerts mean fleet managers never miss a service or other key maintenance checks, helping their fleet run more efficiently for longer.
