Why GPS Tracking For Your Fleet Could Be Cheaper Than You Imagined

Can Your Business Afford GPS Tracking For Your Vehicles?

That's a question many small business managers will have asked themselves and almost certainly after seeing exorbitant yearly subscriptions and costly monthly contracts they'll have concluded no.

However these days there's a revolutionary new Pay As You Go GPS tracking system that costs just £3 a month and has no contracts or yearly subscriptions.

Even though the running costs are so little its range of features are anything but.

In fact TrackerHome offers;

  • A straightforward Web Platform that allows you to track all your fleet's vehicles on one login.
  • A free smart phone app that works on Android and iPhone. Allowing you to check your drivers whilst you're out of the office.

  • Downloadable data that shows driver's speeds, locations and working times.
  • Route repeat options that map out the route taken by your drivers so you can where they've been and at what times.
  • Real time tracking that can help you plan routes with traffic situations in mind.
  • A Geo-Fence option that records an alert when a vehicle enters a certain area.
  • Speed alert options that record when a vehicle exceeds a specific speed.
  • An immobiliser option so you can remotely cut the ignition crank

With all these features available to you the benefits can include;

  • Cheaper fuel costs due to more diligent driving.
  • Less time spent in traffic jams for drivers.
  • Quicker deliver times for customers.
  • Track any out of hours driving by drivers.
  • Recover stolen vehicles easier.
  • More detailed analysis of your drivers behaviours.

So with all this in mind the new question small business mangers will be asking themselves is “Can I afford not to have GPS tracking my vehicles?”

What's Your Ideal Car?

Now all of us have an ideal car and for many of us it stems from when we were young. But not many of us combined the two to create something rather unique. However that's exactly what mechanic John Bitmead done.
John decided to put his talents at car modification to make a grown up version of the classic Cozy Coupe.
The wacky creation cost a hefty £35,000 to make but judging by the happy look on John's face it was worth every penny!
The car itself is a fully transformed Daewoo Matiz and features every detail of the Cozy Coupe. John meticulously copied the yellow roof, glassless windows and even added the over-sized drinks holder. But one major difference he added was an 80cc engine - making the top speed 70mph. That's a speed we doubt even Usain Bolt could achieve in an original foot powered Cozy Coupe!
John was helped his brother Geoff and friend Nigel Douglas and had this to say about his creation;
"I love setting myself a challenge, and once I'd got the idea in my head I was determined to see it through.
'We were chatting one day about how more people have probably driven a Cozy Coupe than any other kind of car - and it snowballed from there.
'Since making it, we've taken it out on a few trips, and people can't believe their eyes when we come driving down the street in this red and yellow toy car."
Now if you fancy some modifications for your car why not visit us today at - perhaps you'll just need something a little less eccentric!

The Future Of Road Safety?

speed limiters and cruise control can currently improve road safety
Road safety is an ever evolving enterprise with boffins and commerce combining to help save lives in innovative an ingenious new ways. In this post we will take a look at Neil Greig's predictions for the future of motoring safety landmarks. Neil is the head of the Institute of Advanced Motorists and he foresees that by the end of 2014 the following changes will be in place;
  • An introduction of drug limits whilst driving and every Police station capable of testing for 'drug-drivers' using drugalysers.
  • Scotland will change its current 80mg per 100ml alcohol blood content drink drive limit to 50mg. This change will bring it in accordance with the rest of Europe excluding the rest of Britain. With this possible change the rest of the UK will surely follow suit.
Looking further forward and into the next 5 years Neil predicts the following changes;
  • Graduated drivers licenses for new British drivers. This system would be more akin to the current Australian set-up. There drivers go through the following three stages; acquire a learner’s permit, progress to a restricted  license and finally gain receipt of a full driver's license. The earlier stages involve certain restrictions such as no night-time driving.
  • The removal of hard shoulders to allow motorways all-lane running to cope with the increase in traffic.
  • More technical regulations introduced from the EU. Such rulings could involve making E-call emergency buttons in cars and anti-lock brakes on motorcycles mandatory.
And a deep gaze into his crystal ball shows Neil some interesting technological advances. His prophecies for beyond the year 2020 include;
  • The appearance of driver-less cars on UK roads. Currently Induct technology have launched an all-electric self-driving shuttle called Navia at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. With its current price at £170,000 it's too prohibitive for mass sales but like all things that will go down relatively.
  •  The idea of "Platooning" which will involve a lead lorry being driven and a convoy of driver-less HGVs behind.
  • Roadside sensors warning drivers of potential hazards such as ice and bends.
  • Cars fitted with Intelligent Speed Adaptation, to stop them exceeding the local speed limit, preventing up to 33 per cent of urban accidents. 
So the future looks rather safer! But if you're interested in extra vehicle safety now then why not check out our speed limiters & cruise control? For more information visit us today at
