Information about the service

Information about the service

MTData is an Australian designed, manufactured and serviced in-vehicle telematics solution that allows customers to create solutions tailored to their needs. Utilising the Telstra mobile network, it provides the near real-time location of your vehicles and assets along with the ability to monitor aspects of driver behaviour, view in-vehicle dashcam and security footage, and assist with Australian legislation compliance. There is also an option to use the Iridium® satellite network when a vehicle or asset is outside of Telstra mobile network coverage areas (additional fees apply).

Telstra has announced that it will be switching off its 3G (850 MHz) service on 30 June 2024

The BP alarm and BP link devices rely on the 3G (850MHz) service and will no longer have mobile connectivity from this date (unless you subsequently upgrade them). The functionality of these devices will therefore be impacted from this date.

You can purchase the MTData In-Vehicle Telematics software on a month-by-month casual basis with upfront purchase of the MTData telematics hardware required.
