42 commercial carrier journal | june 2015 technology N avman Wireless released its Drive suite of applications built to enhance driver efficiency, productivity and safety. The new app suite combines fleet management, com- munications, navigation, dispatching and documentation systems into one user-friendly driver interface. Navman Wireless' Drive app suite features include: • Navigation and Routing. Drive allows drivers to map job locations or other key landmarks from an interactive map screen. Managers can send routing information and updates directly to a driver's cab using their Navman Wire- less OnlineAVL2 GPS fleet management software platform. • Voice-activated and voice-guided navigation. Drivers can customize a keyword prompt and enter a destination using simple spoken commands. The navigation maps the journey, using voice guidance to lead the way. • Two-way communication. Driver and dispatch two-way messaging keeps drivers connected and their managers up- dated, reducing dependency on email, texts and phone calls. All driver communication is managed via one interface directly from the vehicle. • Paperless, customizable forms. Using OnlineAVL2, fleet managers can create and customize digital forms and send them as messages to a driver's cab. Drivers can collect cus- tomer signatures, view order details, see invoicing and more. • Instant signature capture. The tool is available with the Forms messaging option for signature capture and delivery confirmations from the field. • Engine Monitoring System. Through OBD-II or J-Bus connection, Drive's EMS feature allows drivers to see engine parameters, such as speed, rpm, temperature, fuel and oil pressure, on their in-vehicle displays. The Drive app suite is hosted on a 6-inch Garmin-sup- ported MNav-950 in-vehicle display that integrates with the OnlineAVL2 platform. – Aaron Huff D ossier Systems, a provider of fleet maintenance man- agement software, and Zonar Systems, a fleet telemat- ics provider, announced the integration of Dossier main- tenance management software with Zonar's Electronic Vehicle Inspection Report system and telematics data. The companies say the integration will provide bidirectional infor- mation transfer and workflows, eliminating paper forms and associated errors and delays. Us- ers perform their inspections using Zonar's electronic inspec- tion system, and if an inspection reveals a defect, the integration automatically will create Work Pending items in Dossier. Once the work is complete or resolved, Dossier automati- cally will communicate the relevant information back to Zonar to close the loop. The Zonar defect ID is visible in Dossier, and the Dossier repair order ID and mechanic's name are sent to Zonar. The telematics integration also can deliver meter readings and Diagnostic Trouble Code informa- tion directly to Dossier to drive preventive maintenance schedul- ing. Both the EVIR and telemat- ics integrations are available as options in Dossier version 6.4. – Aaron Huff Navman releases Drive fleet management platform Dossier integrates Zonar inspection system Navman Wireless' Drive app suite is hosted on a 6-inch Garmin-supported MNav-950 in-vehicle display that integrates with the OnlineAVL2 platform.
