The FMC series are the professional 4G GPS trackers for advanced use — they feature CAN support, tachograph reading, and multiple connections.
The FMB series are the top-selling 2G vehicle GPS trackers for fleet management with all the right features — ecodriving, iButton, BLE beacons support, remote engine blocking, and so much more.
The TFT series is aiming at the e-mobility market — e-scooters, e-bikes, e-forklifts, etc. — and offers rugged IP67 GPS devices with a wide voltage range, CAN, RS232/RS485 and UART interfaces for flexible applications.
We asked Vladimir Tihonchuk, a hardware specialist in Gurtam, to share his experience with the Teltonika devices and where this hardware gained exceptional popularity:
I knew Teltonika even before I joined Gurtam 10 years ago. This was one of the first “monitoring” brands that I explored. My experience with GPS trackers started from thoroughly investigating Teltonika FM4100. In some respect, Teltonika has always served as a yardstick of comparison.
It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Teltonika is a legend in the world of GPS monitoring. Millions of manufactured devices, hundreds of models.
We had different periods in our cooperation, however now it’s a solid partnership, with many new models being integrated even before the official release.
As for the devices themselves, they are always featured in the list of recommended trackers for virtually any application.
Tachograph readings, CAN bus data, sensors via RS232 and RS485, BLE, video solutions — Teltonika has it all. It’s worth mentioning that Teltonika produces its own modem for the devices, which is quite unique in the market. The device configurator is really good and allows easy and flexible device management.
In a word, Teltonika deserves its status of one of the leaders on the telematics market, and accounting for the rate and quality of the newly released models, it’s not going to give it away.
FYI, 500,000+ Teltonika trackers report to the Wialon Hosting platform, which makes up almost 16% of the total number of connected devices.
Teltonika is a rock-solid player on the telematics and IoT market globally. They have a strong brand, own manufacturing facilities, highly professional engineering, marketing, sales, and support teams, and a great offering of products. It’s always a good idea to check if Teltonika has a suitable GPS tracker for your solution — chances are high that it does.
