Teletrac Navman and Garmin Partner to Provide New In-cab Fleet Management Solution in North America
GLENVIEW, Ill., April 19, 2016—Teletrac Navman, a leading GPS tracking and fleet management provider, announced a partnership with Garmin to provide a new in-cab tablet solution. This solution enables customers to use Teletrac Navman’s fleet management app suite, Drive, with Garmin’s world leading navigation.
Teletrac Navman Drive on Garmin focuses on daily customer workflows like in-cab communication, dispatching, routing and navigation. Additionally, Drive delivers on compliance. With more than 10 years as an industry leading solution in Hours of Service (HOS) and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR), Teletrac Navman takes the worry out of compliance, minimizes risk and enhances operating efficiency.
“We are committed to serving the trucking and private fleet market. Our customers rely on us to keep them compliant, especially now that the FMCSA Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Final Rule has been officially published. Fleet operations need a trusted in-cab solution to provide Records of Duty Status (RODS),” said Sid Nair, Sr. Director Transport & Compliance at Teletrac Navman. “Drive on Garmin 670 does this and more, seamlessly connecting the back office to the trucks; putting fleet owners in the driver’s seat.”
Trucking and Private Fleets are constantly monitoring route efficiency, delivery deadlines, safety, and compliance while trying to maximize driver quality of life. The Teletrac Navman Drive app suite is built with this in mind, prioritizing ease of use, thus enabling drivers and users to focus most on their critical task of driving. With the driver’s attention to the road, Drive will manage communication, compliance and other logistical aspects.
“Garmin’s Fleet 670 hardware is optimized for in-cab commercial truck use with a dust-proof design, high-sensitivity GPS, extra loud speaker, and a sunlight readable, 6-inch capacitive touch screen that makes it easy to see driving-related information at a glance,” said Chad Sallman, Garmin’s Sr. Business Development Manager for Commercial Solutions. “We are pleased to partner with Teletrac Navman to provide support for their Drive app suite on our Fleet 670. The combination of our hardware with their robust fleet management software will undoubtedly and reliably simplify and optimize fleet logistics.”
Teletrac Navman and Garmin are proud to release this product in time for two upcoming fleet industry tradeshows: the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) Institute and Expo in Austin, Texas from April 19-22 and National Private Truck Council (NPTC) Annual Conference and Expo in Cincinnati, Ohio from April 24-26. Interested users at both shows can get a hands-on demo of Teletrac Navman Drive on Garmin 670 and learn more about its capabilities.
