Why use a Garmin navigator with your fleet management solution?

In simple terms, the Garmin navigator doubles up as a mobile data terminal that gives you two key functions:

  • direct-to-driver commmunications, and
  • interactive navigation

  • Fleet-ready Garmin navigators are installed in each vehicle along with a data transponder (supplied by your fleet management provider) and connected together via a FMI (fleet management interface) cable.

    Drivers now have "screens" in their vehicles for real-time navigation, and to improve efficiencies, messaging and job dispatch connectivity to the monitoring centre via a wireless mobile data network.
