Geotab GPS and Telematics

Fleet Optimization

Extract real-time location and valuable vehicle usage details to discover trends that can be corrected to improve the health of your fleet vehicles and assets. The Geotab GO9 GPS and telematics device accurately records a vehicle’s trips and analyzes its incidents, including accident detection and notification. GO9 offers optional in-vehicle alerts* and instantly notifies drivers of infractions such as harsh braking or speeding. Driver modification can lead to a safer more efficiently run fleet. View any or all vehicles location with Fleet View software powered by MyGeotab and analyze recorded trip history in its entirety through dashboards and analytical reports.

GO9 provides real-time telematics and GPS for any fuel run or electric vehicle and features a 32-bit processor, more memory, more RAM and a gyroscope. Simply plug the GO9 into the OBDII port and begin recording and monitoring driver and vehicle events to allow quick, well-informed decisions for fleet utilization, optimization, and risk management.

Highly Accurate GPS Vehicle Tracking

Collect rich, accurate data on vehicle location, ignition, trip distance and time, engine idling, speed and more. Even if your vehicle is parked indoors and underground, Geotab’s GPS vehicle tracking and telematics start recording as soon as you begin driving. The GO9 introduces the new Global Navigation Satellite System module (GNSS) for faster latch times and increasingly accurate location data. Lead your fleet into the future with expanded capacity for further native vehicle support, improved fuel usage support, electric vehicles, and global expansion.

Engine And Battery Health Assessments

Extract valuable information on vehicle health and status. Record VIN, odometer, engine faults, seat belt usage and more. This data not only helps prioritize vehicle maintenance but also helps audit vehicle use to identify both safe and risky driving habits.

Geotab offers exceptional harsh-event data (acceleration, braking, cornering, etc.) and collision reconstruction through our patented algorithms and the GO device’s accelerometer. The GO9’s gyroscope improves on the current X/Y/Z axis acceleration logging by providing a real-time sense of the vehicle’s orientation. The GO9 can track and analyze vehicle movement more accurately than before, particularly on winding or bumpy roads.

Advanced Vehicle Data Capture

Vehicles send data from a multitude of sources, including the engine, the drivetrain, the instrument cluster, and other subsystems. Utilizing multiple internal networks, the GO9 captures much of this data and results in the richest collection of information.

Breakthrough Accident Detection & Notification

Set up email or desktop alerts that provide you with the first notice of loss. If a suspected collision is detected, detailed forensic data will be automatically uploaded from the GO device to allow for forensic reconstruction of the event. What’s more, the GO9 also has the unique ability to detect in-vehicle reverse collisions.

In-Vehicle Driver Coaching

Improve driving behaviors, like speeding and idling, by playing an audible alert buzzer or coach the driver with spoken words (available as an add-on). Immediate feedback will enhance fleet safety and reinforce company policy, and encourage your drivers to take immediate corrective action.

Enhancement Plugins

There are lots of hardware plug-ins to enhance your fleet optimization and driver safety. Visit the Geotab Marketplace to shop through the many value-enhancing options:

  • Optional hardware provides live, in-cab driver coaching relating to on-road performance to reduce unwanted driving behaviors.
