Original Press Release:
Navman Wireless Releases New Qube 3 GPS Unit for Fleet Tracking
3rd Generation Device Adds Advanced Tamper Detection, Backup Battery & More GLENVIEW, Ill., -- Navman Wireless today announced the immediate availability of Qube 3, an upgrade to the GPS vehicle tracking device that is a core component of the company's OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system. Featuring the lowest failure rate in the industry, the Qube has now been enhanced with advanced tamper detection, eight-day backup battery, built-in motion sensor and related alerts.
Now in its third generation, the Qube transmits real-time vehicle location and activity information to Navman Wireless' OnlineAVL2 software over the cellular network for in-depth reporting that helps managers lower fleet operating costs, reduce fuel consumption and increase productivity. The Qube unit installs in each car, van, truck, bus or other fleet vehicle, with a small footprint that allows it to be concealed if desired.
New features in Qube 3 include:
-- A tamper-resistant cover that protects all connections and thwarts employee efforts to disable the GPS signal in order to hide unauthorized vehicle use. If the cover is meddled with, the system detects the interference and automatically sends real-time email or text alerts to designated personnel.
-- An eight-day backup battery that enables continued GPS tracking even if a thief cuts the wires that connect the Qube to the vehicle. The new battery is built into the Qube device to prevent removal.
-- A built-in motion sensor that detects and alerts dispatchers or other personnel to off-hours vehicle movement. This feature can help managers prevent theft, moonlighting and personal use of the vehicle.
Like the earlier model, the new Qube also records vehicle speed, mileage, ignition on/off, entry and exit to geofenced areas, and other critical data that helps managers monitor and measure driver and fleet performance. It stores up to 100 geofences and 1,600 standard events, and has an operating range of -20 degrees C to +70 degrees C.
In addition, the Qube 3 optionally connects to Navman Wireless' mobile communication devices for drivers. Those devices - the M-Nav 760 messaging/navigation and MDT-860 messaging-only units - integrate with the OnlineAVL2 software for instant communication between dispatchers and drivers in the field.
"Our Qube tracking device has proved to be the most reliable unit in its class with a failure rate of less than .6% compared to 10, 20 and even 30% reported for other systems," said Renaat Ver Eecke, Vice President and General Manager, Navman Wireless North America. "This upgrade retains that same dependable technology to ensure that fleet managers have the data they need to optimize operations, from real-time vehicle location displayed on a single map in our OnlineAVL2 interface to detailed reports that can be used to reduce waste and drive new efficiencies."
The Qube 3 is available on a monthly lease that eliminates the need for upfront capital investment or as a one-time purchase. It was designed and is manufactured exclusively by Navman Wireless. More information is available by calling (866) 527-9896 or emailing email@example.com
