However, managing a fleet of a company can be a tough issue choosing the GPS trackers for cars might be challenging. It is important to know the usage of specific features, so recognizing all the famous brands in order to select the best gps tracker is crucial.
In this article we compare our brand Dolphin with two famous Lithuanian Trackers Teltonika and Ruptela in 2 simple and advance Models so all the customers are able to choose the right hardware regarding their needs and parameters.
In the topics of GPS trackers for cars , Dolphin GPS tracking devices with the corporate branding Do-107 is available in 3 models OBD, Basic, FMS. The basic Model of this brand has features such as Bluetooth for wireless connection to device and sensors as well as upgrading and communicating with the device, the ability to connect directly or via cable to 4 sensors and devices simultaneously, communication with the driver and two-way conversation inside car cabin, Monitor the driver’s behavior, and records the parameters of aggressive driving, circular drawing, polygon and four-sided geographic limits, two-way SSL, maintaining information security, and finally records all the parameters of the car’s function, can be installed on a variety of car fleets.
OBD II standard with the ability to connect to OBD of the vehicles and diagnose errors remotely. The remarkable feature of this product is to read OBD information of all types of internal and external vehicle fleets.
Finally, if you want to decide about the right GPS trackers for cars, vehicle Do-107, with the ability to connect to the CAN network of the vehicle and receive the information from the network, established the FMS tracker. Dolphin FMS is the advanced Model of this brand. This GPS tracker device is able to manage a fleet of every company. The GPS trackers can be connected to the CAN network of the vehicle and provide all the information about the vehicle’s operation. For better understanding of this model, please read this article.
To sum up All three models are similar in shape and box, as well as the number of inputs and outputs. This has made it easy for customers to choose their car tracker according to their needs.
All three models are similar in shape and appearance, and the number of inputs and outputs are similar. This has made it easy for customers to choose their car tracker according to their needs.
The Teltonika brand is made in Lithuania and its products are used widely around the world. However, the range of products offered by the company is quite extensive, only two popular models, the FMB920, as the basi also the FMB130 as an advanced model are discussed in this article.
Teltonika’s basic tracker model is available with Bluetooth feature in order to connect to other gadgets, internal batteries, and crash mode detection based on accelerometer data. Regarding Inputs embedded on the device, the FMB920 has the ability to connect to temperature and humidity sensor, hands-free calling and bar code scanners.
the inputs embedded on the device give the ability to connect to the temperature and humidity sensor, hands-free calling and barcode scanners. Besides This device has the ability to receive the all the information of vehicle CAN Network via OBD II dongle and send it to server. Driver performance recordings, sleep utilization, Bluetooth, USB and SMS updates, and recording of some parameters related to vehicle performance are among other features of this car tracker.
in comparing the GPS trackers for cars, The advanced Model of Teltonika GPS tracker, in addition to features of the basic model, provides users the ability to update and mount configurations remotely. Also, the Negative input of the device easily connect to other accessory equipment. These two main features have transformed the Teltonika basic model into an advanced model. The appearance and dimensions, the number of inputs and outputs are different from the basic model of the brand.
In comparing the GPS trackers for cars, Ruptela GPS tracker which is another device from Lithuania has 7 different model. In this article FM-Eco4 light S as basic model and FM-Pro4 advanced model.
The basic model of the Ruptela GPS tracker device is one of the most popular and best GPS trackers for cars and vehicle due to the number of inputs, suitable dimensions, internal antennas, and the possibility of an SMS update.
Ruptela introduced the FM-Pro4 model to the market by adding the ability to read CAN data of the vehicle. This model has all the features of the basic one, and in addition to reading the ECU information, the shape and the number of inputs and outputs are also different.
|Number of records||120.000||30.000||30.000||Dolphin|
|Sim card credit usage|
( With 200 & 43 I/O )
|Config Version||Windows , Linux , MAC , Android||Windows||Windows||Dolphin|
As you can see in the table above, in case user needs connecting to a large number of sensors directly and a peripheral device to the vehicle GPS tracker, Ruptela GPS trackers would be the GPS trackers for cars. Although in comparison with Teltonika in the terms of dimensions and packaging to the Teltonika tracker is way better Tracker.
In this table, there are 4 indicators for comparing these 3 brands: number of records recorded in the device memory, the amount of data compression, and the SIM Card credit usage, energy consumption, as well as config software version. The dolphin GPS trackers indicate its superiority in these four parameters that weakness in two other indicators is Neglectable. Dolphin tracker can record 120,000 records in both basic and advanced mode, which is four times more than the records of its counterparts in the two Ruptela, Teltonika brands.
Due to the compression of data sent by the dolphin device, the amount of consumed credit from the SIM card during data transfer is less than other mentioned GPS trackers. It should also be noted that the Dolphin tracker, with its dominance in energy consumption, reduced the chance of data loss. Ultimately, to explain another valuable parameter of Dolphin Device, we should mention different versions of Dolphin Configuration software, available for Windows, Linux, Mac, Android.
Dolphin’s competitive feature that make itself distinctive between these brands is the value cares users with its performance. One of the important factors which makes it the best GPS tracker for cars in online communication and information recording systems is security. Dolphin GPS tracker with this two-way SSL provides maximum security While only Ruptela has paid attention to this issue, it provides security with one-way SSL. Of these 3 available brands, only dolphin tracker has a smart tracking algorithm. Selecting geographic spots to send to server with a curve-based algorithm. In this case, points are not sent to the server.
One of the unique features of the Dolphin Tracker is to calculate the parameters, including distance, engine running time, and on-site performance, which reduces server-side pressure and speed performance. As it was mentioned before and in the traceability section, connecting to the CAN and OBD networks is one of the most advanced tracing features for these 3 brands. But Teltonika and Ruptela device require an OBD II dongle to send CAN network information to the server, but the dolphin tracker provides users with just one interface and a direct connection to the CAN and OBD II networks.
Note that if you buy Dolphin Tracker and do not have access to its Configuration Software, you can also update and configure the device with other software, but other trackers available in the market have not think of this feature for users. In fact, the Do-107 tracker is better suited to 3 basic, OBD and FMS models with communication protocols and firmware upgrades.
