What is it?
Plug & Track vehicle tracking is a simple way to start tracking your cars and light commercial vehicles without the need for a permanent installation. The tracking units are called Plug & Track as the tracking unit simply plugs into the vehicles OBD II port or clips across the vehicle battery terminals.
Once connected to the vehicles power then tracking starts. As quick and simple as that.
Plug & Track – Self Install Vehicle Tracking
Plug & Track self install tracking units are ideal where a hardwired permanent installation is not feasible. This may be due to the vehicles in the fleet changing on a regular basis; a need to use rental vehicles or the use of sub contractors. In all cases you still need to manage the vehicles activity but want to reduce the cost of regular re-installations of the tracking units

If you need to track temporary sub-contractors, the Plug & Track option gives you access to all the monitoring and tracking data for both your temporary contractors as well as permanent staff. This gives you consistent data as well as peace of mind for new temporary vehicles.
A major benefit of using the Plug & Track where you need to replace vehicles in your fleet on a regular basis, you can easily move the tracking devices from one vehicle to another, and you can just log in and change the registration details associated with a specific vehicle ID. This saves you both time and costs.
Leased / Rented Vehicles
Many companies hire vans and vehicles to fill the gap for when vehicles are off the road for repairs or to meet a growth in demand from your customers. Using Plug & Track is a great way to ensure that the leased vehicles are tracked consistently with the rest of your fleet. Making sure there are no ‘gaps’ in fleet data – whether you used leased or owned vehicles.
