How the Truck GPS Fleet Tracker works
When you purchase this tracker it comes with a SIM card already installed powered up and ready to go. The SIM card comes with free data credit to last roughly 12 months when setup at 3 minute tracking intervals. You can even track it coming towards you in the post. There is a desktop web portal where you can track live on your PC or alternatively you can track on your mobile phone app. The cost of the SIM is already included in the purchase price for 12 months. After 12 months should you wish to extend the SIM data you just top-up online with the username and password provided to you by Munster GPS
If you have a fleet of trucks you will be able to locate each one at any given time. You will also be able to set them up so the tracker will alert you if the truck exceeds a pre-set speed or if the truck goes outside a pre-set route/area.

Truck GPS Fleet Tracker Installation
If you are using the battery only version then just find a place in the truck where it can’t be seen but where it is most likely to receive a satellite signal. There is a strong magnet incorporated in the tracker structure to allow attaching quickly to the chassis.
For the DIY enthusiast the tracker (wired version) is very easy to install in your vehicle. You have 2 wires to connect 12/24v and earth. Make sure a fuse is placed between the DC DC converter and the battery to protect the battery in case of short circuit.

The app and web portal are operated by the manufacturer and not by Munster GPS. In the unlikely event of down time or app deletion we cannot be held responsible as it is under control of the third party. We will however point you in the direction of an alternate web portal. We have been working with the same manufacturer since January 2014 and so far there has never been downtime. Trackers cannot be installed in any vehicle without the driver and owners consent
