Note: “WiFi Only” models do not have the GPS chipsets we need for tracking.

We recommend purchasing the least memory model available since data is received and stored in the cloud. Save some money here!

 

Assuming you wish to have real-time fleet tracking & communications, you will also need cellular service for your iPads. Here’s some great news:

  • GroundCloud will use less than 1 Gb per month of data per route (22 in-service days, 8 hours per day)
  • Since these tablets are not phones, the cost for data only service is very low!
  • Cellular carriers are sometimes willing to negotiate adding tablet data-only to your contract for no extra cost!

We recommend choosing the carrier with good service in your route areas.

Note: The GroundCloud app is designed to gracefully handle loss-of-network situations, storing data on the device until a network connection returns. Drivers continue to enjoy route navigation even in spotty network areas!
