Masternaut announces all-in-one telematics and vehicle navigation system
Using Masternaut Pro, fleets can access the Masternaut Connect applications for rich two-way messaging, allowing managers and drivers to exchange delivery addresses and other dispatch information. Messages can contain information such as an address, a point of interest or a phone number which can be used to seamlessly navigate or automatically dial. Masternaut Live gives fleet managers access to real time driver location information to effectively deploy the closest drivers to a specific location, based on a real-time ETA calculation provided by the system.
Masternaut Pro gives drivers instantaneous driving style feedback to help coach best driving performance. The EcoDrive application also records and provides in-depth and accurate analysis of trends in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, to enable businesses to improve efficiency by focusing on driver behaviour. The Tax & Expense application ensures the accurate capture of mileage from every journey to support expense claims, with drivers alerted when trips or journeys are not being logged.
The system also provides advanced route planning, real time 3D map visualization, and turn-by-turn voice instructions. Pro also automatically receives real-time traffic information “over-the-air” to provide live estimated times of arrival and real time re-routing around traffic congestion. Drivers are able to plan trips based on multiple destinations and optimise them to find the best route, without extra driving and without the need for scheduling software. The device has ruggedized mounting for demanding vehicle use, and a Bluetooth hands free kit for safe driver calling completes the solution.
‘We’ve taken in-vehicle driver communication, navigation and telematics one step further with Pro. By taking some standard navigation and digital map technology, enhancing it, and then seamlessly integrating it into Masternaut Connect we believe we’ve created the most complete and integrated solution in the telematics industry,’ said Alex Rothwell, COO and CTO of Masternaut.
