CalAmp LMU 2000The CalAmp LMU-2000 vehicle tracking unit features a small size, superior GPS design, OBD-II interface and a 3-axis accelerometer and is an ideal solution for automotive insurance, driver behavior management, auto rental, easy-install fleet management and automotive applications when access to the vehicle diagnostic interface OBD-II connector is required. These features track vehicle speed and location, plus hard braking detection, cornering or acceleration using internal antennas for both cellular and GPS eliminate the need for professional installation. Messages are transported across the cellular network using enhanced SMS or UDP messaging providing a reliable communications link between the device and your application servers. The CalAmp LMU-2000 reduces cost, power consumption and device size while improving field reliability in 12 volt or light-duty passenger vehicles.

Employing an on-board alert engine called PEG? (Programmable Event Generator) the CalAmp LMU-2000 tracking unit is continually monitored by PEG and instantaneously responds to thresholds rules by application such as time, date, motion, location, geo-zone, input and other even combinations allowing you to meet demanding customer requirements. This behavior can be programmed before shipment or over-the-air once the unit has been fielded.

The CalAmp LMU-2000 also leverages CalAmp’s industry leading over-the-air device management and maintenance system, PULS? (Programming, Updates, and Logistics System). Configuration parameters, PEG rules, and firmware can all be updated over the air. PULS offers out-of-the-box hands free configuration and automatic post-installation upgrades. You can also monitor unit health status across your customers’ fleets to quickly identify issues before they become expensive problems.
