Battery Mounted Insurance Telematics Device
Product Description: 

The GB100 is a device designed for self-installation by a customer. It simply mounts directly onto the vehicle’s battery with only two wires to attach. This approach allows for either a very low cost installation or for the insurance customer to self-install. Its built-in GPS receiver has very high sensitivity, a fast time to first fix and supports 1 Hz (every second) location sampling during vehicle motion. Its quad band GPRS/GSM subsystem supports 850/900/1800/1900 MHz and enables the GB100’s location to be monitored in real time or periodically tracked by a backend server and mobile devices. Its built-in 3-axis accelerometer allows motion detection, incident detection, 1600 Hz* pre/post incident data collection and extends battery life through sophisticated power management algorithms. System integration is straightforward as complete documentation is provided for the full featured @Track protocol. The @Track protocol supports a wide variety of reports including emergency, geo-fence boundary crossings, driving behavior, low battery and scheduled and compressed GPS position.
