Networkfleet Inc. announced the soon to be available Networkfleet 4200, a low-cost GPS vehicle tracking system for commercial and government fleets. The new 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 easy-to-use Web-based application to provide access to vehicle information, according to the company.

The Networkfleet 4200 is designed to give fleets a vehicle tracking system that includes a rugged automotive-grade device backed by the company’s full service and support. Designed by Networkfleet’s telematics engineering group, the 4200 is made to be tamper-evident and hermetically sealed, allowing it to withstand harsh environments. The company says 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.

“At Networkfleet, we want to provide our customers with options that will meet their needs,” says Keith Schneider, president of San Diego-based Networkfleet. “We designed the 4200 for those who want a lower-cost GPS solution, but prefer to purchase it from a leading provider that backs up their products with service, support and stability for the long term. With the addition of the 4200 product, government and commercial fleets of any size can find a Networkfleet solution that works best for their operations.”

The Networkfleet 4200 will be available for purchase immediately following the completion of external network certification processes, which are estimated to be finalized in the middle of the third quarter of 2009.
