SAN DIEGO -- February 27, 2014

Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent
wireless solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Vehicle
Tracking Systems (VTS), a premier fleet management systems provider, to
deliver its MT 4100 and MT 3050 devices to support the VTS Silent Passenger
application. The partnership will also support VTS’s migration from GPRS to
CDMA technology.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS:

  *MT 4100: The MT 4100 is a flexible, full-featured M2M device for fleet
    management that delivers key product features that drive the most
    demanding fleet management applications. Once fitted into a vehicle and
    integrated with a fleet management application, the MT 4100 delivers on
    critical features to drive efficiencies and reduce operational costs. The
    MT 3060 provides superior GPS location performance using an on-board smart
    agent event engine for accelerometer based driver behavior reporting,
    geo-fencing, messaging and other events. The MT 4100 also features
    multiple I/O ports, 1-Wire® interface, Garmin Fleet Management Interface
    (FMI) and an M2M API that simplifies fleet management back-office
    integration and compatibility with the on-board smart agent event engine.
  *MT 3050: The MT 3050 is an on-board diagnostics OBD-II plug-and-play
    telematics solution built for both fleet management and Usage Based
    Insurance (UBI) applications. The MT 3050 features Novatel Wireless’ on
    board rules engine that supports customer-defined exception-based rules
    for applications such as ignition, geo-fencing, trip reporting and other
    events. It also has built-in threshold events to capture metrics critical
    to effective fleet monitoring such as excessive engine RPM, rapid
    acceleration, harsh braking, vehicle speed and excessive idling. The MT
    3050 delivers enhanced performance utilizing an innovative antenna design
    and disconnect alert feature using an in-device backup battery.
  *Silent Passenger: The VTS Silent Passenger application is a fleet
    management program that makes it easy to efficiently monitor vehicles.
    Silent Passenger integrates detailed, up-to-date maps with real-time
    traffic information and turn-by-turn directions. Silent Passenger is a
    web-based solution and as such, users have the convenience and mobility of
    accessing the solution from any computer, anywhere, with no software
    installation necessary.
  *Premier Wireless Solutions (PWS) will serve as the distributor for the
    solutions, providing Novatel Wireless solutions to VTS.

advanced fleet management programs. VTS’s integration of these solutions will
provide M2M tracking capabilities for the Silent Passenger application,

management solutions.”
