GPS Tracking Dispatch and Navigation

Dispatch and Navigation

Fleet drivers dispatched by a central authority need help to find their destinations. Paper-based maps are difficult to use – both time consuming and unwieldy. Many target addresses may not be featured on maps.

In-vehicle navigation systems are convenient, safe and reliable, however entering multiple addresses for each set of stops in a daily route is time-consuming. During the day, routes may change, and drivers and dispatchers need a way to communicate quickly, safely and effectively.

Dispatch and navigation services are available for the EBR 6100, 6150 and 6151 GPS tracking beacons and Garmin™ Personal Navigation Devices (PNDs). From the EBR web application, Dispatchers may send jobs and messages to drivers, and monitor the status of jobs as drivers accept their jobs on the PND, navigate to the destination and complete these jobs.
