Navman Wireless is adding a GPS-based speed monitoring service  for its OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system. The service, made available through a partnership with SpeedGauge, can be added to any of Navman Wireless’ monthly subscription packages.

SpeedGauge’s service helps identify high-risk driving behavior and analyze speeding patterns over time, Navman Wireless said. Users of the service will be able to:

  • Establish thresholds for driving over posted speed limits (e.g. 3 mph over for city, 7 mph over for highway), with different settings for cars, trucks and hazmat vehicles.
  • Set limits and thresholds for private roads, truck yards and other locations outside of standard speed zones, and create custom speed zones with electronic geofences.
  • Receive daily, weekly or monthly emails that list the time, date, location, speed limit, actual speed and other key data for each speeding incident.
  • See the precise location of any violation on a map by clicking on any incident.
  • Drill down to additional details at Navman Wireless’ password-protected SpeedGauge site, with the ability to sort by parameters such as vehicle and incident.   
  • Access a variety of trend reports online, including charts and graphs providing at-a-glance information on speed violations and improvements over time. Reports are archived online for a year and can also be imported by the fleet operator for longer recordkeeping.

“Driving speed has traditionally been a wild card in fleet management because fleet operators have had no way to measure this aspect of driver behavior. Yet speeding corresponds directly to accidents, fuel efficiency, and vehicle wear and tear,” said Renaat Ver Eecke, vice president and general manager, Navman Wireless North America. “With SpeedGauge, managers can zero in on habitual speeders, use the information to corrective action, and dramatically reduce speeding incidents and related risk and costs through training and policy enforcement.”
