When researching GPS car systems for your fleet, you have to consider more than just the monthly fees. There are many features and hidden costs to weigh prior to subscribing to a vehicle tracking provider. If you’re looking for the best GPS car system on the market, look no further than Vicmar.
Vimcar’s fleet tracking software — including special driver tracking software and fleet administration tools — has no hidden fees, is easy to install and is continually being updated with customer feedback in mind.
This article will explain what makes Vimcar so special and how easy it is to install our GPS car system.
What Makes Vimcar So Special?
Vimcar creates award-winning GPS fleet tracking software that is easy to use and can be self-installed in minutes. That means no trips to the shop are required and you can install the hardware at no additional cost to you.
Moreover, Vimcar’s GPS car system provides the most accurate data on the market. Our GPS software has a sending frequency of 20 seconds, so you’ll know where your vehicles are at all times.
Above all, we pride ourselves on the quality products we create for our customers. Our software is updated on a monthly basis with new and improved features, based on the direct feedback we receive from our customers.

Update #1: Driver ID
With Driver ID, you can easily track who’s in the driver seat. Drivers can be identified in real-time without any disruption to your business. Our Bluetooth beacons attach right onto your drivers’ keychains, and their location is transmitted to our fleet tracking software automatically.
With this information, you can respond to incoming jobs quickly and effectively. Plus, you can retroactively link each trip to a driver, not just a vehicle. Say goodbye to time-wasting, ad hoc calls!
Update #2: Driver Style Analysis
Driver Style Analysis (DSA) is a software that tracks your drivers’ safety and driving efficiency. The software tracks drivers through a mobile app that they must all install.
From there, Vimcar’s software will track and score each commercial driver based on factors like speeding, acceleration, idling and phone usage. You can then identify outliers and correct poor driving behaviour immediately.
Update #3: Private Flyer Mode
By law, fleet vehicles — like company cars — that are used for both personal and business purposes can only be tracked during business hours. Vimcar’s fleet tracking software, Fleet Geo, now comes equipped with a privacy mode that can be turned on and off by your driver. This makes Fleet Geo suitable for tracking any type of fleet vehicle!
