The topic of wireless tracking for your fleet is one which is growing in relevance, and with good reason too.
Why is this?
Companies in the UK are benefiting from the advantages wireless tracking brings with it, from geofencing, driver dispatching to driver identification.
Getting going with wireless tracking couldn’t be easier, thanks to the Vimcar Dongle. Learn more about the advantages of wireless tracking with the Vimcar Dongle in this guide.
How does your business benefit from the OBD Dongle?
In the past, vehicle trackers were fairly heavy-duty and needed to be manually attached to each vehicle’s battery. Not only did this take time, but it also meant that wireless trackers were slow to be installed and detached.
The Vimcar Dongle, however, is specifically designed to be as easy to install as possible.
First of all, the device is about the size of a keyring and comes equipped with OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) plugin technology. This means that you can simply plug the device into the OBD interface in each of your vehicles, typically located around the top right of the footwell.
Secondly, the Vimcar Dongle saves you time.
The device can easily be installed into each vehicle in a matter of minutes, straight into your OBD interface. This also means that you or your drivers don’t need to dedicate a number of hours or require expert knowledge of your vehicle’s mechanics to get going with wireless tracking.
Moreover, you can swap each OBD Dongle from vehicle to vehicle with ease. You can simply plug the device in and out of the vehicle of your choice. Thus, installing wireless tracking into each vehicle is as easy as plugging a USB into your laptop.
