When do you use a Geotab GO fleet tracking device and when a GO RUGGED? The answer is actually pretty simple. If your fleet has heavy equipment, yellow iron, farm machinery, powered trailers and assets, or you are installing telematics devices where they will be exposed to outdoor elements, you need GO RUGGED.
If you are not using a ruggedized telematics device for these types of applications or harsh environments, you may not get the most from your telematics investment.
