"TeleNav Asset Tracker is an affordable, easy-to-use product that gives companies peace of mind knowing where every vehicle or piece of equipment is located. Our goal with this product is to not only help these companies improve operations efficiency but also asset security."

TeleNav Asset Tracker is available immediately and costs $199.99 per device and $19.99 per month for the Web-based tracking feature. Companies also pay a one-time setup fee of $19.99 and need to have a Sprint Data Access Plan which costs $7.00 per month.
