The Geotab GO device is even more advanced than you imagined. Out of the box and into your business, you will have peace of mind knowing that your telematics investment will continue to add value over the long run.
Designed and manufactured by Geotab, the GO Device includes a cellular modem, highly sensitive GPS and accelerometer. With internal antennas for both GPS and cellular connectivity, Geotab has engineered a truly robust solution.
The firmware, also designed and written by Geotab, puts it all together to provide the overall end-to-end solution.
Introducing more advanced vehicle data
Vehicles send data from a multitude of sources, including the engine, the drivetrain, the instrument cluster and other subsystems.
Utilising multiple internal networks, the GO Device captures much of this data and results in the richest collection of information.
Premium tracking at affordable rates
Geotab’s solutions are pushing businesses forward and are transforming fleet management, all at a lower price point. It includes detailed engine data for all major motor, car, and truck manufacturers from North America, Europe, South America, and Asia.
Easy plug-&-play installation
It all starts in the vehicle. The GO Device is a small form-factor device that simply plugs directly into your vehicle’s OBDII port. If your vehicle or truck does not have an OBDII, an adapter can be used instead. The installation process is quick, easy, and doesn’t require any special tools or the assistance of a professional installer. Harnesses also allow you to connect to other vehicle types and keep your engine port exposed if required.
Fastest GPS acquisition time
Even if your vehicle is parked indoors and underground, Geotab’s technology will start tracking as soon as you begin driving. You will receive second-by-second data about the specifics of ignition on, trip distance and time, as well as engine idling and speed.
Ultra-accurate engine diagnostics
The Geotab GO Device is one of the most advanced fleet management devices in the world. It communicates and is compatible with diverse vehicle types: hybrids, electric vehicles, delivery vans, and highway trucks.
High quality recording
Our engine integration leads the industry. The GO Device extracts valuable information on the health and running status of your vehicle to make you aware of service maintenance priorities. Recording VIN, odometer, and seatbelt use helps managers audit vehicle use and identify both safe and risky driving habits.
In-vehicle driver coaching
Recording high quality information and making it simple to set up rules that immediately coach drivers to improve their driving, is what Geotab is about. Manage your safe driving policies, like speeding and idling, by playing an audible alert buzzer or with an add-on to coach the driver with spoken words. Immediate feedback will improve safe driving practices as drivers can then take corrective actions as events occur in the vehicle.
Accident detection & notification
If an accident is detected, an email or desktop alert can be set up which provides the manager with the first notice of loss. If an accident is suspected, detailed forensic data will be automatically uploaded from the device to allow forensic reconstruction of the event. What’s more, the GO Device also has the unique ability to detect collisions while reversing.
Expand your telematics solution
The Geotab platform can be extended even further, at any time, to provide additional functionality. The GO Device includes an expansion port – the IOX. Multiple IOXs can be connected, allowing you to add new peripherals as you require.
IOX-NFC: driver identification
Using the latest in RFID technology – Near Field Communications (NFC) – Geotab is delivering driver identification for drivers that switch between vehicles. With one simple touch of the NFC fob, vehicle operators can quickly, easily, and securely provide their driver ID information. Individual driver trips and driving behaviour will then be displayed in MyGeotab for fleet managers to review.
IOX-AUX: auxiliary connections and digital inputs
With the IOX-AUX, fleets can identify various types of peripheral activities. From plough up/down notifications on snow ploughs, to rear door open/close on delivery vans, your options are endless.
IOX-Garmin: Garmin for HOS and messaging
Connecting a Garmin to the Geotab GO Device allows messaging to/from your driver, provides directions, or compliance management with your Garmin Hours of Service (HOS). Geotab supports PNDs with and without traffic in both Europe and North America.
IOX-CAN: private CAN interface
A private CAN network in the vehicle enables customers or partners to transmit data from a third-party device, otherwise not connected to the vehicle’s network. Geotab also uses this IOX to support partner integrations, such as Mobileye for driver distraction systems and Valor for reefer monitoring (temperature monitoring) and TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems).
IOX-RS232: serial interface
Similar to the IOX-CAN, this IOX allows partners to push data from external devices through the GO Device to MyGeotab using a proprietary serial protocol. IOX-DICKEY-john: salt & sand spreader monitoring is ideal for municipality fleets enabling managers to better understand material and liquid distribution: how much, where, and when – in real-time.
The GO RUGGED is a rugged telematics device designed for harsh conditions or external installation. It has the same advanced GPS technology as the Geotab GO Device, with the added benefit of being designed to the IP67 standard (international standard for protection against intrusion of solids, dust, direct contact, and water).
