What is a self-install telematics device?

A sell-install telematics device is a user-friendly tracking device, one that can be installed by the vehicle owner or fleet manager without professional assistance. These devices connect directly to the vehicle, collecting valuable data such as location, speed, and driving behaviour.

At Radius, we offer various self-install telematics – from the Atom to Neon devices – that cater to different needs. These are built for ease, ensuring a quick, straightforward installation process which typically takes no more than 20 minutes per vehicle.

Self-install options provide flexibility in device placement and transfer. Fleet managers can easily move devices between vehicles as needed. This optimises the use of telematics across the entire fleet.


Self-install telematics devices are a scalable option. Whether managing a small or large fleet, these devices can easily be added – or removed – based on the fleet’s changing needs.

Gain real-time data

Telematics devices offer real-time data on vehicle performance and driver behaviour. This information access allows you to make informed decisions immediately, improving efficiency and safety standards.
