An Over-Speed Warning Beeper is built into many of the Plug N Track GPS devices and warns drivers that their speed has exceeded the pre-configured threshold speed (default 120.7 km/h or 75 mp/h). If the speed of the vehicle continues over the pre-configured threshold for a duration of 15 seconds an over-speed event is recorded. Two distinct in-cab audible warnings alert the driver to an impending over-speed event and a third to confirm an over-speed event. An over-speed event is reset when the speed of the vehicle falls 24 km/h (15 mp/h) below the configured threshold.
You can request that the Over-Speed threshold be adjusted in 5 mp/h (8.04 km/h) increments or disable it entirely by emailing Plug N Track GPS technical support with the Serial #/ESN of the device.
An aggressive acceleration / deceleration event is defined when the vehicle's speed increases / decreases by 14.5 km/h (9 mp/h) within a 1-second time frame.
You can see aggressive driving events on the Plug N Track GPS dashboard when looking at the trip history. You can also set Alerts on the dashboard to notify you by text or email whenever an aggressive driving event occurs. Aggressive Driving events are also recorded and included in a variety of reports to help you to assess the performance of your fleet.
An excessive idling event is detected and defined when the vehicle's ignition is on and travel speed is less than 8 km/h (5 mp/h) for longer than 10 minutes.
You can set an Alert on the dashboard to notify you by text or email if an excessive idling event occurs. You can also configure the Alert with a variety of variables such as inside or outside specific landmarks you have created, particular days, or times of day. This will help you control excessive idling and save you money in fuel and unnecessary wear and tear on vehicles.
Yes. If the ignition is Off and the Plug N Track GPS device detects movement at any speed greater than 32 km/h (20 mp/h) for 10 seconds or longer a potential towing event is triggered. That event is stopped when the GPS calculated speed is less than 8 km/h (5 mp/h for 2 minutes or longer.
You can set an Alert on the dashboard to notify you by text or email for any potential towing events to protect your vehicle assets.
The detection of a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) is defined by the On Board Diagnostics (OBD) equipment of the vehicle. If the OBD detects a trouble code the Plug N Track GPS OBDII device records this event. Diagnostic Trouble Codes for the make and model of the vehicle can be translated via many online sources including a wide variety of Apps.
You can set an Alert on the dashboard to notify yourself by text or email for any DTC's detected. This ensures you stay on top of vehicle issues and keeps your drivers safe and customers happy.
Fleet businesses that invest in and utilize the features of Plug N Track GPS reap the benefits and realize long-term returns on their investment. Because however, there are also many short-term goal orientated scenario’s for GPS vehicle tracking, Plug N Track GPS has a "no return" policy. Examples of short-term goals might be where a business wants to know if a particular employee is misusing a company vehicle while off the clock or someone interested in using a GPS device to find out if a spouse is cheating on them. In both scenarios, the user could find what they are looking for within hours and therefore would no longer need the GPS tracking device they purchased. This has led to abuse of money back guarantees.
