The Portable Black Box

The fleet 590 integrates a black box, cable and antenna with our industry leading user-interface.

The device also provides a fleet-friendly design the enables the flexibility to easily transfer from vehicle to vehicle. Since the fleet 590 is portable and does not require a direct hard-wiring to the vehicle, any professional installation costs or customer downtime is eliminated, allowing the driver to get back on the road.
