Garmin® Expands Its Telematics API Platform And Now Includes The Fleet™ 590, Their Newest Portable And Connected Fleet Management Device

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced the expansion of their Telematics API platform and the integration of the fleet 590, the company’s first portable and connected fleet management GPS that combines the necessities of fleet management with the simplicity of Garmin navigation. With vital fleet-tracking abilities and driver-enabled capabilities, the fleet 590 delivers an integrated tracking and dispatch fleet system for business owners and their drivers.

“Both the Telematics API and the fleet 590 combine to create an attractive and powerful platform, designed specifically with simplicity in mind,” said Chad Sallman, Business Development Manager for Commercial Solutions at Garmin. “We’re very excited to offer this Telematics API solution to our fleet service provider partner base.”

As a highly capable Telematics navigation device designed specifically for the fleet service provider in mind, the fleet 590 integrates a black box, cable and antenna with Garmin’s industry-leading user-interface. The 5-inch touch display is optimal for limiting driver interaction and makes it easy to see driving-related information at a glance. The device also provides a fleet-friendly design that enables the flexibility to easily transfer from vehicle to vehicle. Since the fleet 590 is portable and does not require a direct hard wiring to the vehicle, any professional installation costs or customer downtime is eliminated, allowing the driver to get back on the road.

With a third-party business partner application, fleet owners have the capability to track their assets at a moment’s notice, even during non-business hours. With Continuous Asset Tracking, the fleet owner has instant access to the location of the fleet at any time of the day. Since movement and periodic polling trigger this continuous asset monitoring, owners can rest assured that deliveries and goods are on schedule and visible at all times. And with the addition of electronic time clock functionality, labor and job data can be logged and recorded on the spot.
