Networkfleet, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hughes Telematics, Inc., has unveiled its new Networkfleet 4200, which it described as a low-cost GPS vehicle tracking system for commercial and government fleets. Plans are to have it available for purchase following the completion of external network certification processes, which are estimated to be finalized in the middle of the third quarter.

The new tracking system is designed for fleets that need reliable location tracking, but do not require the patented remote engine diagnostics offered by the Networkfleet 3500 wireless fleet management system. Both products use the same full-featured, web-based application to provide access to vehicle information.

According to the company, the U.S.-built 4200 is tamper evident and hermetically sealed, allowing it to withstand harsh environments. The 4200 works on all vehicles and is built to pass SAE J1455 certification, an industry standard for electronic equipment design in heavy-duty vehicles.
