Welcome to

Telematics is a general term that refers to any device which merges telecommunications and infomatics. Telematics includes anything from GPS systems to navigation systems. It is responsible for many features in vehicles from OnStar to hands free mobile calling.

Telematics enables wireless data communication and opens up a huge range of possibilities. It can enable you to have wireless television and internet on your vehicle. Telematics is essentially a range of different features, options and devices that are brought together by a single principle – data and communication.

Through telematics you enjoy many benefits in your vehicle on a daily basis such as roadside assistance and remote unlocking of your vehicle. Lets say you forgot the car keys in the vehicle, well with telematics and a quick phone call you could get your car unlocked.

Telematics is also used heavily in fleet tracking and management. More and more fleet owners are finding huge savings by adopting telematics technology.
