Why use a separate modem with SIM as you probably have a smartphone with Bluetooth connection?
A Squarell Bluetooth device can inform the driver through a smartphone with actual information about his truck, trailer and cargo.
The Squarell Bluetooth dongle is a very easy to install SFD (Special Function Device). The Bluetooth dongle can easily overtake the existing connection to an external modem device. The vehicle data you used to receive via RS232 can now easily be sent to your Android or iOS smart phone. There are two types of Bluetooth dongles available. Bluetooth 2.1 for older types of Android phones/tables and Bluetooth 4.0 LE which is used for al iOS devices and all recent Android devices.
When the driver is outside his vehicle, the Bluetooth device can lose connection. The Squarell Bluetooth dongle has a 8 MB buffer to store the vehicle data when the connection with the end device is lost.
The Bluetooth device is part of Squarell’s advanced vehicle data solutions and products range. With a configurable functionality and extended connectivity, the Squarell Bluetooth device can be used in various automotive applications such as telematics, fleet management, real time monitoring, measurement and control/interfacing.
