You can check out GPS Fleet Guide - Find Fleet Management Solutions (http://www.gpsfleetguide.com) that compares different gps units. I personally recommend blackbox gps units, you can find info, pricing and purchase it at GPS Vehicle System (http://www.gpsvehiclesystem.com)

We use to run GPS tracking via Nextel cell phones in our fleet of trucks. Yes, they did need to be turned on and if they were low on charge they had a tendency to loose track. Another thing to think about with this method is that it was an extra service to have activated to do the tracking by phone. Also, if they did not have a clear view of the sky they would loose track so it wouldn't be a good idea to try and conceal one on a vehicle and get any reliable results.

I have always found the Nextel network to be a poor way to monitor vehicles and deliveries. Sure you can walkie talkie position on your employees, but that alone is not going to stop someone from moonlighting in my company vehicle. Don't most GPS fleet tracking devices require monthly monitoring? Do they all require a seperate monitoring plan for each device. If I were looking to monitor my company vehicles and construction equipment, that would require 16 units and 16 monitoring plans...right?

Welcome to the forum!

That's a good question. Actually I would recommend to start a new thread on the topic, it would be more likely to be seen and answered by someone with a perspective on it.

I think here would be appropriate forum sections...

Hey thanks Eric for the welcome, and the advice. I was researching on were I could get GPS vehicle tracking for the 16 company vehicles and equipment I manage and I was able to find an answer to my question. A great website with lots info. http://www.chicagoezgps.com (http://www.chicagoezgps.com/) This company is as far as I can tell the only one that allows you to access all your units with one monthly monitoring fee. With the price of gas nowadays...I should be able to recover the inital investment in the technology with the amount of money I save by controling the use of company vehicles after work. The monthly fee of $32.95 allows me UNLIMITED acess to ALL my devices anytime from anywere in the world. With my Blackberry I can acess all the info I need to manage my fleet of vehicles, equipment and monitor my employess.
Thanks

Going Green While Reducing Fleet Costs
Fuel use remains a major cost for fleet owners and contributes to environmental degradation. The only way to lower your fuel bill and help improve the environment is by reducing consumption. High-quality GPS Fleet Vehicle Tracking Systems (http://www.fleetmatics.com) include a variety of management features to help ensure that vehicles use fuel more efficiently.

Driver behavior directly affects fuel consumption with speeding and excessive idling as the two top offenders. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, maintaining efficient vehicle speed provides a fuel economy benefit of 7-23%.

In addition, the average cost for idling vehicles running at 800 rpm are .85 gallon per hour. Considering all factors, including any wear and tear caused by restarting, any vehicle that will be stopped for more than 60 seconds (except in traffic) should have the engine turned off.

By monitoring vehicle speed and idling, GPS vehicle tracking solutions provide fleet owners with a way to pinpoint and correct poor driving habits. As driving habits improve, fuel consumption will decrease.

Increasing Productivity
A recent study by the Aberdeen Group, a research firm that studies the effects of technology on business, found that organizations with fleets experience a 23% increase in the total number of service calls completed per day per technician once a fleet tracking system has been installed in their vehicles.

GPS fleet tracking can increase productivity in two ways: increasing response time to job sites and ensuring employees complete their jobs in a timely manner.

The best GPS systems provide minute-by-minute updates to pinpoint the exact location of every vehicle, every minute of every day. Fleet owners have the ability to give drivers the location of and the quickest route to any job site. They can also locate the vehicles closest to any job site and dispatch drivers in an efficient manner.

By localizing vehicle routes and improving route efficiencies, your company can do more business every day while also helping the environment.

In addition, GPS solutions can incorporate automatic timesheet features to help fleet owners keep accurate employee hours and eliminate paperwork. Owners can quickly determine the actual number of hours an employee spends in the vehicle, how long they spend at each job site, if they are using vehicles for private use during work hours (or unauthorized after-hours use) and monitor excessive stop times.

Many business owners find that the information gathered by GPS serves as a motivational tool. The system can be used to further increase employee productivity with bonuses and rewards based on tangible performance metrics.

How GPS Works For You
Acquiring a GPS solution for your business fleet is generally an easy process that usually works like this:

Once a business makes the decision to increase profits with GPS, a vehicle tracking unit (VTU) will be installed in each vehicle. With the best systems, there are no exposed wires or antennas, making the equipment virtually tamper and theft proof.

Utilizing satellite technology, the system begins monitoring and recording activity of each vehicle. Fleet owners or any authorized personnel can then access the information from any Internet-enabled computer.

The GPS interface should give you a clear view of the position of all your vehicles, as well as important information on vehicle activity. Quality systems will include historical reports are simple to generate and provide a concise overview of key metrics.

When used properly and combined with an employee awareness program, GPS fleet tracking will generate a clear return on investment and reduce your business’ environmental impact.

I have worked in the GPS fleet tracking (http://www.fieldtechnologies.com)(telematics) industry for over a decade. There are several good products out there, but FieldLogix is the best vehicle GPS tracking system (http://www.fieldtechnologies.com) I've ever used.

For personal GPS vehicle tracking, I like the Garmin Nuvi 2400 Series. It has a five-inch screen and the latest-generation Garmin features, including myTrends predictive routing that learns your favorite routes.
