The third generation of Navman Wireless’ Qube GPS unit offers advanced tamper detection, eight-day backup battery, built-in motion sensor and related alerts.

The Qube 3 is a core component of the company’s OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system. It transmits real-time vehicle location and activity information to the OnlineAVL2 software.

“Our Qube tracking device has proved to be the most reliable unit in its class with a failure rate of less than 0.6% compared to 10, 20 and even 30% reported for other systems,” said Renaat Ver Eecke, vice president and general manager, Navman Wireless North America. “This upgrade retains that same dependable technology to ensure that fleet managers have the data they need to optimize operations, from real-time vehicle location displayed on a single map in our OnlineAVL2 interface to detailed reports that can be used to reduce waste and drive new efficiencies.”

The tamper-resistant cover protects connections and prevents employees from disabling the GPS signal. The eight-day backup battery will continue transmitting data even if the device is not connected to a power source, and the built-in motion sensor detects and alerts dispatchers to off-hours vehicle movement.

The Qube records vehicle speed, mileage, ignition on/off, entry and exit to geofenced areas, and other critical data. It can store up to 100 geofences and 1,600 standard events. In addition, the Qube 3 optionally connects to Navman Wireless’ mobile communication devices for drivers.

The unit is available on a monthly lease or as a one-time purchase.
