You'll probably want to check out the video demo for GPS Insight. I was astounded by the amount of information that GPS Insight can track. Imagine this, you owned a car and someone borrowed it to go to somewhere, you can literally know whether they are at home, idling the car, speeding or stopped by somewhere and that data is updated every 2 minutes. Utilizing Google Mapping software, the map is pretty much comprehensive and in some places, 3D. It's amazing.
Benefits of using GPS Insight are:
- Gets direct engine diagnostics (fault codes, speed, fuel consumption, odometer readings, idle time, etc.)
- Cost only $1.50-2 per day per vehicle
- No more labor paid when people aren't really working, fuel savings, routing efficiencies, etc.)
Overall, GPS Insight is simply a remarkabe product.
