Why Geotab sets the gold standard for GPS tracking solutions:

Geotab is a world leading developer of GPS vehicle tracking technology solutions. GPS tracking is used to measure and record activity of vehicles and their drivers. The compact Geotab GO6 device combines the following information to create the best possible measurements of a trip.

  • — location
    (LIVE mapping as often as every 1 second)
  • — date
  • — time
  • — vehicle data
  • — accelerometer information

The GO6 is compatible with more vehicles than any other device supporting*

  • — past and current model gas
  • — diesel
  • — hybrid
  • — electric
  • — off-road vehicles

*(adapter may be required).

Geotab has been measuring trips and activity
with the highest quality precision for over 10 years.

The Geotab GPS fast latch technology acquires date, time and location information usually within 3 seconds of start up. Onboard the vehicle, the GO6 analyzes activity every second from ignition on through reversing, turning, accelerating, cornering, braking and stopping. Our approach provides accurate and useful trip information for use by analysts, managers and personal drivers.

Geotab technology end-to-end live online web access solutions
are fully supported with:

  • — a software login
  • — map view
  • — detection of activity in city or suburb
  • — geofencing zones
  • — features and reports for many user groups.

For loss control, drivers can be notified when safe driving thresholds are exceeded — when an audible alert is heard to assist drivers to manage their driving habits.

Eratic Driving:

As a leading technology engineering company solely focused on advanced telematics,
Geotab’s devices can accurately differentiate between:

  • — aggressive driving
  • — accident events
  • — pot holes in the road.

The device identifies jack rabbit start, as well as an engine-over revving RPMs, and of course speeding. All events are easily analyzed and compared in using the web based software service.
The importance of the GO6′s capability to identify risky driving by using the multi-sensor approach is important to identify the difference between accelerometer events happening at low speed vs high speed or those that occur in a built up area or vehicle being revved to overtake.
With the accuracy of the recording, your post-sampling of the vehicle’s speed versus the posted speed limit is also available.
Hard Braking is a leading predictor of distracted driving or aggressive driving. Braking incidents often involve rear end collisions at worst, and premature brake and tire wear at best.
Recording cornering relies solely on the accelerometer for the severity of the G-Force and when combined with the date, time, speed and location of the hard cornering the event can be properly logged. The audible alert is very effective to manage cornering habits.

Consistent and Accurate: 

When driving in a residential neighborhood, it is even more critical that drivers are aware of their performance. Full stops at stop signs are recorded.
Trips on residential roads are properly logged without gaps or jumps.

Accident Detection:

In the event of an accident, the GO6 can automatically release data from its accident memory buffer. This unique additional memory buffer has been logging the entire trip in high precision forensic detail. Precise information including what direction the vehicle was hit, if it spun and if the brakes were applied prior to collision. The capability to retrieve accident level events in this detail helps claims adjusters and managers quickly understand the severity of a problem and action steps as quickly as possible.
