Fleet FAQ? Fleet Tracking and Telematics

Q. How long can I expect my vehicles to be down to complete the installation, and in general, what can I expect when it comes to installation as far as who has to install it?

On average, a vehicle will experience down time to have a Fleetmatics GPS vehicle tracking device installed by a professional installation technician, which can be scheduled around routine maintenance. The system can be configured virtually and requires no additional IT investments from the fleet's company.
