New RAC Telematics driver app now available in Microsoft App Store
The app, which is used in conjunction with the RAC Telematics device, brings driver behaviour data, journey history, vehicle health information and engine fault alerts together in one place to support business drivers.
The app provides RAC Telematics customers with a similar level of information to what a fleet manager would see in their vehicle portals. By synching with the RAC Telematics unit fitted in the vehicle, the new app will provide the user with:
- Personal driver score based on speed, braking and acceleration patterns with tips for improvements
- Vehicle health information to send an alert when parts such as batteries are running low or other engine components are malfunctioning
- Driver location and journey information to generate work vs. leisure mileage reports
- Vehicle updates to alert the driver when it's time for a service or MOT
RAC Telematics managing director Nick Walker said: “The new RAC Telematics app has now been made available on the Microsoft App Store following its launch for iPhone in April, and it is a powerful tool for the driver, putting a huge amount of information at their fingertips.
“Not only will it help them to take full advantage of the telematics technology by using features such as driver score and mileage reports, but will also help them to identify when individual components are not working properly so they can be proactive about vehicle maintenance.
“RAC Telematics customers will see the value in bringing all these functions together in one app which could help them develop better driving habits and save time and money as a result.”
