Telematics: Navman launches new ‘accept and go’ tracking system

Navman Wireless has integrated its vehicle tracking technology with the Navman in-vehicle satellite navigation system to launch the industry’s first ‘accept and go’ tracking and navigation product for fleets.

Combining tracking, job dispatch messaging and satellite navigation, the M-Nav 650 allows real-time messaging and routing from the desktop to the customer’s doorstep.

The system features ‘accept and go’ functionality.

When drivers click to accept the message from head office, the M-Nav 650 will automatically launch the relevant on-screen map and instructions to the next job, with no need to input any postcode details.

Tony Neill, vice-president Europe, Middle East and Africa at Navman Wireless, said: “The efficiency of vehicle tracking to reduce operating costs is undisputed.

“With the M-Nav 650, employers can improve productivity while giving something back to their staff, making their working lives easier by giving them a really popular employee benefit.”

The system helps companies to meet the Working Time Directive legislation by offering reports on individuals rather than just vehicles.

Integral driver ID functionality allows multiple drivers to use the same vehicle and for management to keep a check on how many hours they are driving.

Vehicle information and two-way text messages are sent between the M-Nav and the customer’s offices via the internet, using the Vodafone GPRS network.

This enables live vehicle-tracking information to be visible across multiple sites within seconds for a convenient fixed-price tariff.

The M-Nav 650 combined satellite navigation and tracking service is available for £1.50/day or 90p/day for just vehicle tracking.
