    Looking for info on GPS tracking systems for vehicles and equipment. I don't want monthly payments. Has to be hardwired. We're most concerned about being able to find stolen equipment, but it would be nice to be able to see where our equipment is and track start/stop times.

    Yep, i didn't want it either, but the monthly charge is how you access their site for the information on your trucks/equipment.. the gps itself doesn't do you much good.

    We pay like $40 per truck/machine. for the summer, it surely feels like a waste, but helps immensely in winter. anyone with dozens of accounts or sub contracted accounts needs to have them these days. Two years ago it was a maybe, 2015, you need them.
