Navman Wireless North America has added canned-message functionality to its vehicle tracking and logistics software, OnlineAVL2. It allows fleet managers to create a library of standard messages that make sense specifically for their businesses, thus providing team members with a quick way to deliver clear messages with only a few key selections. The new feature is an added enhancement to Navman Wireless’ real-time vehicle position, integrated maintenance modules and software that provides mileage reporting, automated e-mail reporting, monitoring alerts, and high-resolution satellite imagery capabilities.

Manager-selected canned messages provide a seamless response template for accurate disclosure, says Navman. Managers can create up to 100 custom messages relevant to their business. Messages are wirelessly programmed onto the M-Nav integrated messaging and navigation device, and Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) for drivers to use. Canned messages provide time-stamped documentation that managers can later access in reports.

The complete Navman Wireless fleet-management offering, including OnlineAVL2, is priced from a dollar per day, the company says. The new canned messaging function is available in new purchases and is accessible immediately to current Navman Wireless customers at no charge as a free upgrade request or during the next scheduled automatic software update.
