Verizon Networkfleet is now offering configurable update rates (CUR) in its GPS devices to give fleet managers more control over their vehicle tracking operations.

The new update rates, which can be set in 15 second increments up to two minutes for the Networkfleet 5000 series devices, give fleet managers the flexibility to receive near real-time location data. The CURs can be set by the user and are fully integrated into Networkfleet’s online GPS fleet tracking and engine diagnostic monitoring system.

The new update rates give fleet managers the ability to view vehicle routes with more specific detail based on their particular needs and respond to customer service questions.

For both commercial and government fleets, more frequent location data for vehicles and assets can improve fleet operating efficiency and improve vehicle and driver safety, Verizon said.
