GPS Mini Trackers?

Hi there, I'm with a 100+ used independent and looking into purchasing GPS mini trackers for our fleet. Seems like the pricing has come down and might be a good way to know where everything is at all times. Anyone have any experience using these, if so appreciate knowing what brand, best pricing, tracking software used, etc. - Ideally we would want a good dashboard control panel software to see all the vehicle at 826feb30-91a4-4eb3-b0d5-fa0016558aac.png a glance, do searches, sorts, etc. Thank you!

Those seem awfully cheap for what they are. Far cry from the bricks of yesterday.

One thing I took notice to, which may not be a huge deal for what you're using them for - the battery life is somewhat limited.

Rechargeable battery life is up to 5 days (the more it moves the lesser the days) tracking real time every 1-5 minutes. If real time tracking is not needed, battery lasts 30-75 days tracking 1-3 times per day (using battery save mode).

You also have the monthly service charge but I wonder if they offer a "fleet" option: Monthly fee of 19.95USD is required or as low as 9.95USD for long term prepaid plans

I'm thinking you may want something more robust, more engineered for fleet services.
