Navman Wireless North America, a global provider of vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions, has announced the next generation of its vehicle tracking and logistics software, OnlineAVL2.

A successor to the company’s Online AVL1 designed to provide fleet managers with the vehicle position and activity details they need to effectively manage a mobile work force, and a key component of the Navman Wireless solution, the new OnlineAVL2 integrates new ways for businesses to view the location of their assets, and more accurately address issues for their drivers and customers, the company says.

Providing fleet managers with a more photo-realistic view of their drivers’ actual surroundings, the new OnlineAVL2 utilizes high-resolution satellite imagery and high aerial photography. In addition to traditional street-level mapping views, the new software now supports several hybrid mapping display options with views including street-level mapping, top-down satellite imagery with street and street-name overlay, or satellite imagery only.

Each option displays the position of assets according to their current GPS location, and provides a clearer picture of roadways, structures and parking areas, to name a few, in relation to the vehicle, the company says; an intuitive popup window allows fleet managers to zoom in on a vehicle for greater detail without losing the rest of the surrounding map.

“Our new OnlineAVL2 is the result of significant customer feedback, millions in R&D and several years of development,” says Renaat Ver Eecke, vice president of Glenview, Ill.-based Navman Wireless North America. “These enhancements, coupled with the software’s existing extensive range of features, makes our fleet management offering the most complete and cost-effective solution on the market.”

Additional features of OnlineAVL2, according to Navman, include unlimited two-way messaging to one, some or all vehicles from an office desktop; integrated navigation functionality for drivers; real-time and historical vehicle/driver activity reporting; Driver ID technology for differentiating individual activity with shared assets; programmable alerts for vehicle speed, idle time, unauthorized movement and security breech; and polygonal geofence functionality for defining driver territories.

The complete Navman Wireless solution, including OnlineAVL2, is priced from $1.50 per vehicle per day with no money down. For more information, go to www.navmanwireless.com.
