We have replaced all our byonics based TT3’s or “dumb” trackers with the argent data OTUSB or T3 devices… plug in play upgrades no wiring changes needed… Was plug in play with our existing fleet and now we have 2 way smart trackers….  Even upgraded the GPS to the Nuvi350 for the T2/T3 devices so they could support messaging.

Having some minimal UI on the tracker so messages could be sent back to it from the Net Control Station position would be a plus.
