I'm in the trucking business..big time (1200 tractors.2800 trailers). Main concern is longevity and service nationwide. While there are multiple "start ups" and low price "alternatives", they come and go like the wind leaving you with worthless obsolete junk and no connectivity system.

Bottom line, use the industry leader, Qualcomm, or a handheld Nextel GPS solution. The rest are mostly here today, gone tommorrow.

Nextel did not work for us. My trucks are route trucks and we need almost a live feed to the trucks for tracking. Nextel has a refresh on location something like every 5 minutes and my guys could go through five stops in that time.
