Geotab upgrades telematics device to help better manage fleets

The GO9+: Advanced vehicle tracking featuring on-board Wi-Fi hotspot.

Geotab has introduced its new GO9+ telematics solution, which now includes Wi-Fi connectivity.

The new GO9+ is built upon Geotab's GO9 device. Released in 2019, this device was designed to help businesses better manage their fleets through improved acceleration tracking, a more accurate GPS and better support for vehicle-generated data and for new vehicle types. The newly added connectivity of GO9+ will allow businesses full visibility of their vehicles in real-time, as well as offering Wi-Fi connectivity for up to four hours with the ignition off, thereby eliminating wasted fuel and greenhouse gas generated when idling for WiFi access.

The GO9+ is ideal for fleets and vehicles of all classes and duties, including heavy truck fleets, rideshare vehicles, small business fleets, ride-for-hire services, buses and even for use as a single-vehicle mobile office. As with all Geotab devices, it is supported by the MyGeotab platform, which provides managers with centralized access to all connected vehicle data. The addition of Wi-Fi saves cost by reducing the number of cellular connections in the field while improving access to data options for employees.

"The GO9+ opens up internet access to more people, allowing managers to stay connected to their teams, enhancing the ability of businesses to operate with employees away from an office or logistics warehouse," said Colin Sutherland, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Geotab. "The adoption of efficiency tools for employees has accelerated and as we end an unpredictable and unprecedented year, one thing we can place firmly in the silver linings column for 2020 is that many industries have pivoted to permanently optimizing their everyday business practices for an increasingly connected world."
