These are connected devices with the capability to download apps, play audio content or other entertainment, access Internet-enabled content such as traffic or weather conditions, and/or provide network connectivity for a wireless local area network such as a Wi-Fi hot spot.

These are connected devices that are only capable of monitoring and/or reporting on the performance, activity, location, usage, driving characteristics or faults of a vehicle or container.
