GPS TRACKING UNIT WITH OBD-II INTERFACE

The LMU-3030 is an ideal solution for automotive insurance, driver behavior management, auto rental and automotive applications when access to the vehicle diagnostics interface (OBD-II) is required.

COMPETITIVE PRICE, COMPETITIVE TECHNOLOGY, COMPETITIVE EDGE

The LMU-3030 full-featured tracking unit from CalAmp features small size, superior GPS performance, OBD-II interface, backup battery, and a 3-axis accelerometer. These features enable the LMU-3030 to access vehicle diagnostic interface data, track vehicle speed and location, plus detect hard braking, cornering, acceleration and capture pre and post-impact data. Superior internal antennas for both cellular and GPS eliminate the need for professional installation and make the LMU-3030 install quick, easy and inexpensive. 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 LMU-3030 is designed to dramatically reduce cost, power and size while significantly improving field reliability in 12 volt passenger or light-duty vehicles.

FLEXIBILITY

The LMU-3030 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.

OVER-THE-AIR SERVICEABILITY

The LMU-3030 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.
