iPhone/iPad Access to Fleet Information for Dispatchers, Fleet Managers & Executives
Navman Wireless recently released a significantly expanded mobile app for its OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system, enabling dispatchers, fleet managers and executives to monitor and manage fleet activities from their iPhones or iPads. Launching in the U.S. as a free companion application to OnlineAVL2 with other markets to follow later this year, the new app provides in-depth insights into real-time fleet operations as well as the ability to send and receive messages through Navman Wireless in-vehicle terminals for fast and easy communication with drivers.
The company says the broad new mobile functionality is the most extensive in the fleet tracking industry, allowing fleet operators to take advantage of a robust set of GPS-based fleet management tools from the road or the field. OnlineAVL2 users can now use the mobile app to:
These and other features provide anytime/anywhere access to key OnlineAVL2 information and capabilities, enhancing the ability to use the platform to reduce fleet costs, improve productivity and maximize customer service.

View the entire fleet, vehicle groups or individual assets in real time on Google Maps, with choice of standard, satellite or street map views
Spot out-of-bounds vehicles or construction equipment by tapping a button to add previously created geofences or job sites to the map view
'Replay a Day' to see any vehicle's current-day activity plotted on a map, making it possible to retrace driving routes and pinpoint the time and location of events such as speeding or idling; the same information can also be delivered in a report format.
Route drivers to a specific address with turn-by-turn directions by sending the information to the Navman Wireless M-Nav dispatch/messaging/navigation terminals
Send messages to one or multiple Navman Wireless in-vehicle terminals with a tap, eliminating phone calls or separate text messages with associated delays
