Digicore launches its Plug & Play vehicle monitoring system

obdii plug n play vehicle monitoringDigicore is best known for supplying In Vehicle Monitoring Systems, better known to the mining and ancillary industries as IVMS/ GPS Tracking. Additional to the supply of IVMS/ GPS Tracking, Digicore has launched their Plug & Play vehicle monitoring system. Although the Plug & Play vehicle monitoring system does not replace IVMS/ GPS Tracking, it is a great supplement to IVMS/ GPS Tracking where the full range of features are not required.

The Digicore Plug & Play solution includes similar driver behaviour type data to that of the traditional IVMS/ GPS Tracking, but excludes specific functionality such as driver ID, seatbelt usage and handbrake usage. That being said, the Plug & Play solution still includes powerful geofencing functionality – similar to the IVMS/ GPS Tracking system.

An IVMS/ GPS Tracking system requires installation into a vehicle and due to the location of most operators, a major contributor to the cost of IVMS/ GPS Tracking was installing it. With the Plug & Play solutions, this problem is overcome as it is plugged directly into the vehicle’s diagnostics socket – also known as the OBDII port.

While IVMS/ GPS Tracking is focused more towards larger enterprise and ancillary industries, the Plug & Play unit is in reach of all market segments due to a lower cost and ease of installation. Digicore reports that some of their IVMS/ GPS Tracking customers have already started implementing it into their fleets where full spec IVMS/ GPS Tracking isn’t required.

A main feature that is worth mentioning of Digicore’s Plug & Play unit includes FBT reports. When used with the Ctrack Mobi software, trips can easily be marked as business or private and comments per trip can be added.
