MiX Telematics has launched MiX Rovi II, a new seven-inch, Android-based touchscreen in-cab display. It is designed to help managers and drivers comply with FMCSA electronic logging requirements, communicate in real-time, and improve job routing, navigation and productivity, while reducing fuel usage.
MiX Rovi II extends the company’s MiX Fleet Manager solution for fleet management and driver behavior monitoring, and forms a pivotal part of MiX Telematics’s Hours of Service (HOS) offering. Its customizable data inputs allow drivers to capture customer-specific data. Managers are kept in the loop in real-time, and customers can be contacted as issues arise, rather than after the collation of a day’s data.
Benefits of the MiX Rovi II in-cab display include:
Safer driving: Alerts, pop-ups and verbal warnings help coach drivers on issues such as speeding, harsh braking and over-revving An optional navigation feature also includes truck-specific and hazmat-aware routing and directions.
Reduced fuel usage and vehicle wear-and-tear: From the elimination of unsafe driving behavior.
Less paperwork: A fully FMCSA-compliant electronic logging device simplifies the way drivers log their hours and eliminates paper logs.
Better reporting: The MiX Rovi II unit integrates seamlessly with MiX Telematics’s comprehensive online reporting suite, combining relevant data captured by the display with vehicle and driver information. This allows fleet managers to more effectively manage their assets.
Improved productivity: Real-time communication between managers and drivers to increase efficiency. With new jobs being assigned to drivers in real-time, fleets are also able to improve delivery times to customers.
