Navman Wireless USA today announced the addition of new electronic driver log and driver vehicle inspection reporting (DVIR) options to its OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system. Both options are provided through a partnership with Innovative Software Engineering (ISE) and customization of its eFleetSuite compliance package to seamlessly integrate with the workflow of the OnlineAVL2 system.
Both reporting options can be completed online through a link in the Navman Wireless interface or in the field, for instant driver access and roadside inspection, on Navman Wireless’ M-Nav 800 in-cab touchscreen navigation/message terminal.
Navman Wireless says that OnlineAVL2’s new Electronic Driver Logs option reduces paperwork, increases driver productivity, improves back-office visibility to driver hours for resource utilization and load planning.

- Automatically calculating remaining driver availability
- Providing driver log history for roadside inspectors via the M-Nav screen
