‘Drive’ is a comprehensive suite of applications just launched by Navman Wireless, built to enhance driver efficiency, productivity and safety, the company says. It combines fleet management, communication, navigation, dispatching, and documentation systems into one “user friendly” driver interface, said to streamline processes for drivers, dispatchers, and the fleet. Its focus on driver and operational efficiency paves the way for automated tasks, safer roads and smoother communication.
Fleets expose themselves to risk and inefficiencies with distracted driving, manual paperwork, and untimely exchanges of job site information, Navman says, making a single platform useful to get real-time updates on daily jobs and driver activity.
Each aspect of the suite and its applications was designed to boost efficiency for drivers on the road, as well as managers in the back office, making this a multi-functional tool that can serve as part of a carrier’s fleet management solution.
The Drive app suite includes:
The latest in navigation and routing tools, allowing drivers to map job locations or other key landmarks from an interactive map screen. Managers can send routing information and updates directly to a driver’s cab using their Navman Wireless OnlineAVL2 GPS fleet-management software platform.
Drive’s navigation feature includes built-in voice-activated and voice-guided assistance. Drivers can customize a keyword prompt and enter a destination using simple spoken commands. The navigation uses voice guidance to lead the way.
“Easy to use” driver and dispatch two-way messaging keeps drivers connected and their managers updated, reducing dependency on email, texts and lengthy phone calls. All driver communication is managed via one interface.
Using OnlineAVL2, fleet managers can create and customize digital forms and send them as messages to a driver’s cab. Drivers can collect customer signatures; order details; see invoicing and more, eliminating paperwork and time-consuming workflows.
The Signature Capture tool is readily available with the Forms messaging option and uses capacitive touch, enabling fast and easy signature capture and delivery confirmations right from the field.
Through an OBD-II or J-Bus connection, Drive’s Engine Monitoring system allows drivers to see engine parameters on their in-vehicle displays, such as rpm, temperature, fuel, and oil pressure.
Trucking Attributes helps drivers find the safest routes, avoiding narrow roads, low underpasses, and weight- and load-restricted bridges.
The Navman Wireless Drive app suite is hosted on a 6-in., Garmin-supported MNav-950 in-vehicle display that fully integrates with the Navman Wireless OnlineAVL2 platform.
