Built to support your fleet now and into the future

Welcome to the most powerful GO device ever. The Geotab GO9 is redesigned from the ground up, featuring a 32-bit processor, more memory, more RAM and a gyroscope. The GO9 features expanded capacity for further native vehicle support, improved fuel usage support, electric vehicles and global expansion.

Data that is second to none

Accurate vehicle tracking

Collect rich, accurate data on vehicle location, speed, trip distance and time, engine idling and more. Even if your vehicle is parked indoors and underground, GPS vehicle tracking and telematics starts recording as soon as you begin driving. The GO9 introduces the new Global Navigation Satellite System module (GNSS) for faster latch times and increasingly accurate location data.

Vehicle health assessments

Extract valuable information on vehicle health and status. Record VIN, odometer, engine faults and more. This data not only helps prioritize vehicle maintenance, but also helps audit vehicle use to identify both safe and risky driving habits.

Collision detection and notification

Geotab offers exceptional harsh-event data (acceleration, braking, cornering, etc.) and collision reconstruction through our patented algorithms and the GO device’s accelerometer. If a suspected collision is detected, detailed forensic data will be automatically uploaded from the GO device to allow for forensic reconstruction of the event — including in-vehicle reverse collisions. Email and desktop alerts signal first notice of loss.

Secured data

Geotab uses authentication, encryption, and message integrity verification for Geotab GO vehicle tracking devices and network interfaces. Each Geotab GO 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 updates comes from a trusted source.

In-vehicle driver coaching

Improve driving behaviors, like speeding and idling, by playing an audible alert or coach the driver with spoken words (available as an Add-On). Immediate feedback can enhance fleet safety, reinforce company policy and encourage your drivers to take immediate corrective action.

Advanced data capture

Vehicles send data from a multitude of sources, including the engine, drivetrain, instrument cluster and other subsystems. Utilizing multiple internal networks, the GO9 captures much of this data.

Simple installation

The Geotab GO9 is a compact vehicle tracking device that simply plugs directly into your vehicle’s OBD II port with no additional mandatory antennas or wire-splicing required. The installation process is quick, easy, and doesn’t require any special tools. See the installation sheet for full details.
