"Fleet drivers need a commercial-grade navigation device with truck routing, two-way messaging and other features built for business," said Renaat Ver Eecke, vice president and general manager, Navman Wireless North America. "The M-Nav 760 offers this robust feature set along with the ability to tie everything back to our OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking and reporting software to gather data on vehicles, drivers and overall fleet operations. This maximizes the benefits of our fleet tracking platform by helping operators achieve peak efficiencies on the road as well as in the office."

With the M-Nav 760, dispatchers can send job details, location and customer information directly from the OnlineAVL2 software to the nearest vehicle in the field without typing or making a phone call. Once the driver has accepted an assignment by tapping a pre-programmed response on the screen, the device automatically displays a map to the job and delivers audio turn-by-turn directions. Dispatchers can also adjust routes, modify job instructions, and send messages to one or more vehicles.

The M-Nav 760 will route the vehicle based on truck attributes, such as length and weight. Dispatchers can also configure the system to guide drivers to their destinations by the shortest or fastest route.

A driver ID functionality allows the back-office software to capture drivers' hours, generate time cards electronically, and analyze attributes such as speed and mileage to evaluate individual driver and overall fleet productivity. Real-time forms-based reporting allows drivers to indicate how much time they spent at a job site, what consumables they used, what they charged and other key data from the field.
