Frequently Asked Questions

How can I justify the additional cost of connected fleet software?

When it comes to connected vehicles, you've already paid for the intelligent hardware when you purchased it. Every gigabyte of data output by your vehicle contains insights to help potentially lower TCO and improve driver safety. If you're not collecting and analyzing this information, it's going down the drain.

How do you know a vehicle has connected technology?

There are more than 13 million connected vehicles in the United States, and over 90% of new cars sold include this technology. While it's easy to estimate that most 2020 MY vehicles and newer are connected capable, we'd be happy to review your fleet and pinpoint which vehicles can advantage of connected technology and where you still need a legacy telematics plug in device.

I am a current telematics user — why should I consider connected vehicles?

With a connected vehicle, telematics capability is already built into the vehicle including the cellular modem and advanced computer systems. Using these onboard systems reduces the costs associated with device installs and prevents device tampering.

Having your fleet connected allows for ease of access to the date as it will all live in TotalView through TotalConnect.

How do I find the MPG of my ICE vehicle?

Most modern cars have a digital MPG display, but it may not always be correct. For a more accurate reading, follow these steps:
  1. Fill up your fuel tank
  2. Reset the trip odometer (more information can be found in the car owner’s manual)
  3. Drive. When your tank is at least half empty, fill again and note the number of gallons used to refill and the miles on the trip counter
  4. Use the formula: Miles driven ➗ gallons used to fill the tank
For example, if you drove 100 miles on 10 gallons of gas, your MPG is 10.

What is the Utility kWh rate? How do I find it?

The Utility kWh rate is the price of power supplied by the utility company — in this case, electricity. It can be calculated by multiplying your kWh by the cost of electricity.

What does Mile per kWh mean?

Mile per kWh (kilowatts per hour) is a measurement of energy consumption for electric vehicles.
