The Route Tracker is a small, self-contained device that includes an embedded GPS antenna and receiver as well as J1708, J1850 and J1939 data bus connections, allowing it to capture and store vehicle operational information and location data for automated fuel tax reporting and other location-based applications.

An integrated Bluetooth transceiver lets the unit be used as an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) for automated driver lots when paired with hand-held devices capable of Bluetooth wireless communications, according to developer Turnpike Global Technologies. Printers, base stations, keypads and other devices equipped with Bluetooth can also be used with the device, which can also communicate over WiFi local area networks. In addition, Bluetooth can be used to access cellular-based wide-area wireless networks for remote monitoring.

Web-hosed applications for Route Tracker offer access to a wide variety of driver and vehicle reports including diagnostics records, route verification, idle-time score cards, driver productivity reports, and hours-of-service reports that meet current federal requirements for automated driver logs. Other applications currently available for the Route Tracker include integration with third-party dispatch systems, automated driver payroll, and driver messaging.
