Get accurate data for vehicle tracking planning and management

Fleet intelligence at your fingertips. Use this fleet vehicle tracking system to collect vehicle location, speed, trip distances and time, as well as engine data and much more. The GO vehicle tracking device begins to collect data as soon as it receives ignition, providing a fleet or truck tracking system. The new GO9 includes faster GPS latching and increasingly accurate location information via the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) for an even better GPS vehicle tracking system.

Improve asset reliability and value

Collecting and analysing engine data allows you to manage vehicle health as part of your vehicle tracking system. Along with VIN and odometer readings, the GO9 fleet vehicle tracking device reports engine faults. Target fleet maintenance towards at-risk vehicles and better manage your assets and your team with efficient workflows. Monitor harsh driving to identify and address risky driving habits within your team.

Intercede before, or analyse after a collision

Identify harsh driving events such as speeding, braking, acceleration or turning thanks to the GO9’s accelerometer, gyroscope and our patented algorithms. Use the GO9 vehicle tracking device to pinpoint unsafe driving behaviours like vehicle reversing to inform driver training or reconstruct a collision event with forensic data. Post-collision data is automatically uploaded. Set up automated email or desktop alerts through MyGeotab to be notified when an event occurs.

Secured data with the vehicle tracking system

Geotab vehicle tracking software uses authentication, encryption and message integrity verification for Geotab GO vehicle tracking devices and network interfaces. Each Geotab GO fleet management device uses a unique ID and non-static security key, making it difficult to fake a device’s identity. Over-the-air updates use digitally signed firmware to verify that vehicle tracking system updates come from a trusted source.

Curb unsafe behaviours remotely

With in-vehicle audible alerts, you can automate driver safety management. Also suitable for truck GPS tracking systems, you can deliver immediate feedback to the driver, sounding an alert tone or a text-to-speech warning (via Add-Ons), when they break company rules, such as speeding or excessive idling.

Quick and easy installation

The GO fleet management device plugs directly into the vehicle’s standard diagnostic port, the OBD II. It can be used as a vehicle or truck tracking device, with adaptors available for heavy vehicles when setting up a truck tracking system or other vehicle types if needed. No antenna, wiring or special tools are required for a standard connection. See the installation sheet for more information.

Deceptively simple

The GO9 fleet vehicle tracker device looks small, but delivers great value for your connected fleet, whether you’re setting up a vehicle or truck tracking system. Collect engine data, while the GPS and internal sensors record how and where the vehicle moves. Let our leading vehicle tracking software analyse and help you make informed, reliable decisions as you manage your fleet.
