The LMU-200 is an economical, full-featured vehicle tracking product designed for covert and reliable installation in automobiles. The LMU-200 is an ideal solution for stolen vehicle, vehicle finance, auto rental and other automotive track and trace applications.


The LMU-200 high-value tracking unit from CalAmp features a small footprint superior GPS performance, an optional internal 200mAh back-up battery, ultra low power sleep modes, 3-axis accelerometer for motion sense, and up to four Inputs/Outputs (I/O). The LMU-200 is a complete vehicle tracking and communications device incorporating next-generation, super-sensitive GPS technology on CDMA cellular networks for installation in any 12/24 volt mobile vehicle. Internal antennas for both cellular and GPS eliminate the need for wired antennas and make the LMU-200 mountable virtually anywhere in the vehicle for easy, inexpensive installations. Messages are transported across the cellular network using enhanced SMS or UDP messaging providing a reliable communication link between the device and your application servers. The LMU-200 is designed to dramatically reduce cost of ownership, power and size while providing excellent field reliability.


The LMU-200 employs CalAmp’s advanced industry leading on-board alert engine, PEG™ (Programmable Event Generator) to monitor external conditions and support customer-defined exception-based rules to meet your application requirements. PEG monitors the vehicle environment and responds instantaneously to pre-defined threshold conditions related to time, date, motion, location, geo-zone, input and other event combinations. This behavior can be programmed by CalAmp before shipment, at a customer’s facility, or over-the-air once the unit has been fielded.


THE LMU-200 leverages CalAmp’s management and maintenance system, PULS™ (Programming, Updates, and Logistics System), for over-the-air configuration parameters, PEG rules, and firmware. This out-of-the-box hands free configuration and automatic post-installation upgrades can monitor unit health status across your customers’ fleets to identify issues before they become expensive problems.
