It consists of a black box, cable, and antenna. It has a 5-inch touch display and Garmin's navigation interface, and plugs into the cigarette lighter. It detects driver behavior and allows the fleet manager to assess the driver's safety characteristics and driving habits. An embedded three-axis accelerometer within the device allows speeding, excessive braking, jack-rabbiting and sharp turning to be logged.
