Fleet management software distributor Navman Wireless has unveiled a new application suite and the M-Nav 950, a new in-vehicle fleet tracking, navigation and two-way communicating unit.

The Garmin-supported device features a 6-inch display, truck-specific warnings, landmark navigation and on-screen signature capture.

Integrating with the Navman Wireless OnlineAVL2 platform, Qtanium 350 GPS tracking system and the Qube tracking device, the unit communicates with fleet management offices via the Telstra Mobile Network or Iridium satellite communication network.

Navman Wireless’ software release, called Drive, encompasses a range of applications to enhance driver efficiency, safety and productivity according to the company, and will be pre-installed on the M-Nav 950.

"Fleet efficiency can be largely impacted by distracted driving, manual paperwork and exchanges of job site information," Navman Wireless vice president Asia Pacific Ian Daniel says.

"The M-Nav 950 in combination with Drive removes these inefficiencies by providing real-time updates on daily jobs and driver activity to fleet managers through a single device. It enables fleet vehicles to stay connected, focused, on time and safe." 

Navman Wireless says Drive can provide individual or job-related routing, speed alerts, messaging, customised forms for receiving and tracking job information and engine monitoring, if a data capture unit is fitted.

The software also provides drivers with truck attribution data, which can inform drivers of current road guidelines specific to the vehicle, such as information on size and weight restrictions and road regulations.

The M-Nav 950 is powered by a 1500mAh rechargeable battery, 1GB of RAM and 1.2GHz quadcore processor. The unit has 16GB of in-built storage but additional space can be added via a microSD slot.

The new unit is at the same price point as the previous model.
