DPL Telematics' New Plug-In GPS Tracking System With Anti-Tamper Protection

DPL Telematics now offers its Trackall OBDII Vehicle Tracking System with internal backup battery and anti-tamper features. The product is a wireless monitoring and remote tracking solution using a GPS unit that has no external wiring or antenna and plugs into the existing OBDII port of most vehicles.

DPL tracallNew anti-tamper features include a backup battery which delivers immediate disconnection notifications with location, as well as GPS jamming detection. The Trackall OBDII allows managers to wirelessly monitor all their vehicles continually and accurately using an internet-based software package and mobile app. The system features:  

Automatic Location Updates: Constant reporting is triggered by vehicle status, steering wheel turn, ignition and time intervals which create a daily driver log of activity and can be mapped as a “bread crumb trail”. 

Anti-Tamper Protection: To combat disconnection the unit uses its internal battery to send out an immediate notification and location if it is removed from the OBDII port, and continues to track for several hours.  It also detects GPS jamming and will self-correct if this interference is sensed.

Engine Data: The vehicle’s supported temperatures, pressures, check engine light and diagnostic fault codes are wirelessly transmitted and archived on the software for remote asset diagnosis. All data is accessible from any Internet connected device.

Utilization Data: Mileage driven, engine runtime hours, idling hours, PTO and RPM, fuel level and fuel remaining. These metrics help properly assess working time and track excessive idling.

Safety Alerts:Remotely track and receive immediate notifications such as air bag deployments, driving without the seatbelt, harsh braking, rapid acceleration, speeding, towing and more.

Security Alerts: Customer configured movement, tow and curfew parameters are standard functionality to reduce theft and unauthorized use of the vehicles. 

VIN Decoding: Upon installation the unit will download the vehicle’s VIN and populate the software accordingly, thus reducing the need for manual entry and potential error.

Emission Test Readiness: The Trackall OBDII constantly tracks the eleven vehicle system components required for an emissions test and notifies if any fail to complete their cycle. 

“The Trackall OBDII is the premiere “plug and play” GPS tracking solution available today, allowing anybody to perform an installation in seconds without any wiring or external antenna,” said Tony Nicoletti, Director of Strategy and Business Development at DPL Telematics. “Its simple installation could be construed as a weakness or driver temptation, thus the unit is carefully protected by powerful anti-tamper technologies to ensure its data integrity and reliability are maintained.”
