Navman Wireless North America, a provider of vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions, announced the addition of canned message functionality to its next-generation vehicle tracking and logistics software, OnlineAVL2, allowing fleet managers to create a library of standard messages that make sense for their businesses.

Canned messages eliminate the need for full keyboard typing and provide team members a quick and easy means to deliver efficient and clear messages with only a few key selections. The new feature is an added enhancement to Navman Wireless’ real-time vehicle position, integrated maintenance modules and advanced software designed to provide state mileage reporting, automated e-mail reporting, monitoring alerts and high-resolution satellite imagery capabilities.

Navman Wireless says its fleet manager-selected canned messages provide a seamless response template for accurate disclosure and allow managers to create a collection of up to 100 custom messages that are relevant to their fleet or business. Messages are programmed wirelessly onto the M-Nav integrated messaging and navigation device, and Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) for drivers to use. Canned messages also provide time-stamped documentation that managers can access later in reports by driver or fleet.

“Navman Wireless’ new canned messaging feature is a testament to our continued investment in making the OnlineAVL2 platform the most complete and customizable solution on the market,” says Renaat Ver Eecke, vice president of Glenview, Ill.-based Navman Wireless North America. “Navman Wireless is exciting to deliver increased functionality to fleet managers and proud to offer added features to current OnlineAVL2 customers at no additional cost.”

The new OnlineAVL2 canned messaging functionality currently is available in new product purchases and accessible immediately to current Navman Wireless customers at no charge as a free upgrade request or during the next scheduled automatic software update. For more information, go to
