Wireless Matrix Corporation (TSX: WRX), a leading provider of GPS fleet

plug-and-play OBD-II device certified on the Verizon Wireless network to be
used for GPS fleet tracking business applications.

efficiency reporting, in addition to traditional GPS location data.
The direct connection to the vehicle’s on-board computer port eliminates the

fleets that want to enhance their operations.”
