GPS For Your Company Vehicle

I'm looking for a good GPS that isn't an arm and a leg for monthly fees. Any ideas on where to find one? I have a company truck that I lend to my workers sometimes. I would like to keep track of my truck on where it's been and such. I could still use those mileages at the end of the year for my tax write off. I don't always remember to write the mileage down everytime someone takes off with it. I get busy and seem to forget a lot to do it.

I use the Live Trac G5 Vehicle Tracking from and it's $69/month for 2 vehicles. I have had them for a couple years and happy with them.

It's great for routing a service call to the closest truck and both of my vehicles are taken home. The GPS helps enforce the "to and from work only" policy we have with our employees. I can also monitor speeding, verify start/stop times etc.

I have a couple of units from and they work well as long as you don't let the machinery or vehicle set for a couple of weeks, it kills the battery.

Mine are $15/month per unit, plus the one time cost of the device, which I don't recall but around $200 each +/-.
