Navtrak To Use Garmin Portable Navigation Devices

ABR Staff Writer Published 10 March 2010

Navtrak, a provider of GPS-based fleet tracking software, said that it would use Garmin portable navigation devices to provide real-time vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions for companies with mobile workers.

According to Navtrak, features exclusive to Adobe Flex-based fleet tracking and management software, aimed at fleet owners, managers and dispatchers, include, send to Garmin for dispatching jobs directly to a driver's Garmin device; real-time ETA to view updates of drivers' estimated time of arrival and departure; click and create jobs; and Job Status  for determining what jobs in pending, progress and completed.

Navtrak's navigation and job scheduling features enable Garmin's commercial fleet customers, including delivery vans, over-the-road trucks, taxi cabs and other fleet vehicles, a job scheduling, dispatching and routing service - in one application.

Ron Hodges, CEO of Navtrak, said: We believe utilizing Garmin devices is a fantastic opportunity for us to implement some cutting-edge ideas. We didn't want to be just another integration vendor on their list. Our customers demand innovation from us, and we think the advanced functionality Navtrak brings to Garmin's fleet management interface is very compelling.

Roger Jollis, director of OEM and mobile marketing at Garmin, said: Garmin's fleet management interface provides a better way for our commercial customers to improve response times, optimize fleet resources, and ultimately achieve lower costs and higher profits for their companies. We are pleased to team with Navtrak and applaud the creative way they've chosen to implement our application.
