GPS Insight Partners With Garmin(R) to Provide Support for the fleet(TM) 590, a 
Connected Fleet Management Device 
SCOTTSDALE, AZ  -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/13 --   GPS Insight, the
leading technology provider of GPS fleet tracking software, has
partnered with Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, to
provide support for the fleet 590 connected fleet management device
within its award-winning platform. The portable GPS device combines
tracking capabilities for fleet management and the simplicity of
Garmin navigation. GPS Insight has been selected by Garmin to
integrate with the fleet 590 as it becomes commercially available
soon. 
Now fleet managers can purchase one device that does both tracking
and navigation instead of purchasing two separate devices. Since the
fleet 590 is portable and does not require a direct hard wiring to
the vehicle, all professional installation costs and customer
downtime are eliminated. 
The fleet 590 integrates a black box, cable, and antenna. The 5-inch
touch display and Garmin's intuitive navigation interface make it
easy to see driving-related information at a glance, helping to limit
driver interaction. The device plugs into the cigarette lighter for
easy transfer from vehicle to vehicle. The fleet 590 detects driver
behavior and allows the fleet manager to assess the driver's safety
characteristics and driving habits. Based off the embedded 3-axis
accelerometer within the device, speeding, excessive braking,
jack-rabbiting and sharp turning can be logged. 
Robert Donat, Founder and CEO of GPS Insight, said, "We are thrilled
to be working with Garmin to bring their fleet 590 device to market
and utilize it within GPS Insight's award winning Fleet Tracking
Platform. The ease of installation, reliability and accuracy of the
Garmin, and compelling price point will make it a great choice for
many fleets choosing to track their fleet, as well as automate
dispatch and communications to their drivers." 
"The Garmin fleet 590 is our first portable and connected fleet
management GPS that combines the necessities of fleet management with
the simplicity of Garmin navigation," said Chad Sallman, Business
Development Manager for commercial solutions at Garmin. "We're
pleased to partner with GPS Insight to integrate this device into
their powerful telematics framework to provide a comprehensive fleet
management solution."
