    Good Evening Ladies/Gents,

    Locqus is giving away 15 free truck trackers for testing for a free 3 month trial. If anyone would be interested in trying out our trackers let me know!

    The trackers are OBD 2 devices that give a real time 30 point diagnostic update in real time on trucks/vehicles 1997 or newer.

    These greatly improve efficiency and aid in vehicle security.

    Indeed they are! They pull every 5 minutes when the power source is on and every hour when it is off. They have a battery and backup power as well and will send off a location if they are pulled for some reason.

    I would love to try one. Don't know if I would be smart enough to use it but been thinking of ways to keep the crew on tight string

    Seems weak. Our units report back often enough to see them turn around in a cul-de-sac.

    ^^ We can clock ours to pull every millisecond if you would like. The data eat on that would be extensive. We offer it $10/mo and we are still in Beta testing, more "new" than "weak." How much do you pay for your units if I can ask?

    Mark, isn't your business big enough to need a big boys software? I fail to see how a lawn guy doing $150k a year can develop software for guys doing 10 or 20 times that.

    Ours are thru real green with their mobile live service. Very pleased with how well it does for us.

    Ah real green has some great software, a lot of depth in it. We are seeking to provide scalable software to the Small-medium business looking for a solution under the high end stuff such as Real Green.

    Locqus and Shamrock are two different entities and one is not funding the other. I can explain to you in more detail how I handle both operations if you would like to schedule a call.
