Why is there a monthly or annual service fee in addition to the cost of my plate?

Just as most of us have cell phone service plans alongside the cost of our smartphone device, Rplates rely on a similar service fee to provide you with wireless updates, customization, registration renewals, GPS and other telematics features, by using commercial cellular service. These services and systems have a cost to use and maintain, and we do everything we can to keep these costs low.
