The unit contains a SIM card which uses a mobile phone network to send data to tracking data servers. Because it is web-based, FleetTracker makes real-time location and engine status updates possible, but customers can also opt to download the data as a report. You can choose to use either Google Maps or Navteq for your map interface as well as set up alerts and alarms for when the vehicle goes over the speed limit or when it passes into specified areas.
