Langhorne, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/20/2014 -- On Board Diagnostics (OBD) systems monitor engine function, chassis, body and accessory devices, and diagnostic control networks. OBD-II standards were introduced by the EPA in the mid-1990s to reduce vehicle emissions. GPS North America is now offering OBD-II support as part of their fleet management solutions. OBD-II technology allows business owners and dispatchers to connect their GPS North America Smart Antenna to a vehicle’s on-board computer and monitor trouble codes so they can detect problems early.
In recent years the industry has made strides in OBD-II technology. Earlier versions would use a simple malfunction indicator light, whereas the latest models use a sophisticated digital interface to provide real-time data on engine function and a standardized series of diagnostic trouble codes. This information clues business owners and dispatchers in to the specific nature of any problem a vehicle may be experiencing. Monitoring engine function not only helps companies comply with emissions standards, but also saves time and optimizes driver productivity.
