The Xata Turnpike fleet management and compliance solution now supports the Google Android mobile-device operating system across multiple wireless carriers.


The fastest-growing mobile platform in North America, Android gives customers more feature-rich mobile device options for running Xata Turnpike. The Android platform also gives Xata Turnpike users functionality on the new Samsung Galaxy Tab, a tablet computer for email, web browsing and other multimedia tasks.

Xata Turnpike is already certified to run on several Android-enabled smartphones, and additional Android devices will be certified in the coming weeks, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The largest Galaxy Tab comes with a 7-inch, high-resolution touchscreen, giving drivers what they want most: an extra-large screen with an easy-to-use hours of service graphical interface that supports fingertip scrolling and pinch-to-zoom.

The Galaxy Tab and all Android-enabled devices certified for Xata Turnpike are ideal for drivers who want to run their fleet management system on the same device they use for off-duty activities, such as emailing, web browsing, reading and watching TV or movies, notes the company.

Additionally, Xata Turnpike for Android includes a mobile API that third-party applications can leverage to access basic vehicle and driver information, including driver and vehicle identification numbers, mileage, motion, speed and GPS.
