New Geotab Harnesses and Harness Kits

New Geotab Harnesses for New Truck Connections

Geotab recently announced a series of new harnesses and kits for use with Geotab GO devices. These include adaptable harnesses and fuse connectors designed to work with vehicle-specific engines in global markets. With a wide variety of applications, universal fuse connectors have been added that may help minimize complexity, reduce installation time, and improve safety.

GO9 telematic devices installed on the newest harnesses from Geotab are capable of much more than you may expect.  New harnesses were previously introduced to capture more data on the newer Volvo, Mack, and Hino trucks.  The harness offering continues to expand to address more assets and more applications.

Volvo and Mack Fuse Panel Installs

For quite a few years most telematic devices were connected to the diagnostic ports. Connecting to a fuse panel can be a bit daunting the first time. It is confusing at first glance, but actually is a straightforward installation process with connections in easy reach, but still out of sight. Ultimately, with computer networks becoming more sophisticated on trucks such as Volvo and Mack, connecting telematics technology to the fuse panel reduces potential error codes or other issues.

What’s New in Geotab Drive?

Geotab Drive Version 2003 continues to address simplifying the workflow and navigation.  There are also a few new notewothy new features, so let’s jump right in.

Availability Notifications are available by default in Geotab Drive 2003.  

The 2002 release featured a new availability screen in feature preview.  In Geotab Drive 2003 this becomes the default screen for drivers to review duty status notifications and monitor their driving limits. Using the Availability feature, users can:

  • Apply the Exempt HOS exemption.
  • Monitor remaining rest periods.
  • Receive warnings for upcoming and potential violations.

Have you ever needed to know your database name?  

In Geotab Drive 2003, drivers can check their company database name on the settings screen.

Improved message text for interactive prompts

What action needs to be taken by a driver is now more prominently displayed in interactive prompts. For example, for the prompt “You have logs that require action,” the instructions “Tap here to review” will also be displayed alongside in bold text as a shortcut to whatever needs attention.

Improved logout workflow

To get drivers into the App and on the road faster, the logout/login workflow has been streamlined. Currently, drivers are asked to change their status to OFF or ON when logging out of the App. They were also asked to verify logs the next time they logged in. For most drivers however, the only verification required was their OFF/ON status from the previous logout. Now, the logout feature will automatically verify the ON/OFF status and prompt log verification before log out, shortening the process and simplifying the workflow.
