TeleNav announced the addition of TeleNav Vehicle Manager to its Mobile Resource Management (MRM) product line. TeleNav Vehicle Manager, powered by Turnpike, combines vehicle diagnostics and IFTA Fuel Tax filing with GPS-enabled navigation, tracking, wireless forms and wireless timecards.
TeleNav Vehicle Manager is available exclusively from Sprint.
“With TeleNav Vehicle Manager, we are able to offer customers a solution to help them improve compliance management and better compete through automation of IFTA Fuel Tax filings including mileage driven. All of this is available at a fraction of the cost of many on-board solutions,” said Ravi Acharya, associate director of B2B marketing for TeleNav.
“We are very excited to be the first carrier to offer this comprehensive solution for the transportation industry,” said Tim Donahue, vice president of marketing for iDEN, Sprint.
TeleNav Vehicle Manager uses an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) paired (via Bluetooth) with a GPS-enabled wireless phone to gather and submit engine diagnostics, driver performance information, odometer readings, mileage reports, wireless forms, and wireless timecards. The wireless phone also enables tracking of vehicles en route, providing better control of fleet and logistics operations, and gives drivers audible turn-by-turn directions to increase safety and reduce fuel consumption, the company says.
