Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different plan options for HCSS Telematics?

There are a number of different plan options with different hardware types to fit all of your different equipment needs so you can track all of your equipment, no matter where it is. Each plan is charged on a monthly basis plus hardware costs and includes unlimited user access to the website from any device with a web browser.

Plan 1

Wired units or OBD2 plug-in devices ping your equipment location every 4 hours to provide equipment hours and mileage, send alerts for potential theft, and create geofences around job sites. Plan 1 is designed for yellow iron and heavy equipment as well as two-ton trucks and heavier.

Plan 2

Receive location information every 2 minutes from wired units or OBD2 plug-in devices. Plan 2 provides equipment hours and mileage, as well as alerts for driver speed, geofence entry and exit, and abnormal start times to ensure operators are using equipment properly and to be notified of potential theft. This plan is for on-road vehicles such as one-ton pickup trucks, mechanic trucks, fuelers, and any vehicles with an OBD2 port.

Plan 3

Designed for generators, trailers, welders, arrow boards, and other non-powered assets, the satellite asset tracker pings every 12 hours, allowing you to keep track of the location of all of your non-powered equipment. Equipment hours are available with a wired add-on installed on assets that can be turned on but not driven.

Plan 4

Use the OEM GPS devices already installed on your John Deere, Komatsu, CAT, and Volvo equipment to import GPS data directly into the website, eliminating the need to log into multiple manufacturers’ systems for reporting data. Data is updated as often as the manufacturer releases information.
