Hello everybody!!

Can anyone please help me to know the difference between vehicle tracking system and vehicle tracking unit? I need this as I am going to install vehicle tracking to my fleets.

Hi Richeyhatton, as i far as i understand it, is that the tracking system is for tracking multiple vehicles, the user will get automatic tracking info sent to them on the vehicle movements via the internet, where as the vehicle tracking unit has to be contacted and interrogated to give details of ithe vehicles current position.

Tracking system is for fleet operators.
Tracking device more for tracking one vehicle.

If i'm wrong i'm sure i will be pulled up by others.

Twisted Evil
The main difference between the two products is the following; a vehicle tracking unit is the hardware, normally a small box with a GPS & GSM antenna, which is located covertly within the vehicle. These "units" are often monitored by a third party and are primarily for security. A vehicle tracking system will add a software package onto the basic tracking unit. The software package will allow authorised users, such as your companies fleet manager, to track the vehicle via a secure website and mapping software. As well as real time tracking various reports can also be run to show the vehicles start and stop times & speeding reports etc. Most tracking systems require the user to sign a 2 - 5 year contract but Chameleons Asset Track vehicle tracking system dose not tie the user into any long term contracts.
