Atlanta-based Discrete Wireless, Inc., a leader in the GPS Fleet Management industry, today announced the Company will provide a "bolt-on" Garmin in-vehicle navigation and routing extension to the Company's MARCUS® 3G2 GPS tracking device. The Garmin display will handle dispatch and route points in addition to the out of the box Garmin capabilities like turn-by-turn voice guided directions. The Company has been shipping the Garmin compatible in-vehicle radio module, the MARCUS® 3G2, for a number of months in preparation for the Garmin product launch.

Discrete Wireless continues to supply the ease of use and functionality in GPS Fleet Management solutions that the Company's customers have grown to expect and rely on.
