Sometimes drivers complain that even if their vehicle is fitted with a sophisticated tracking and telematics system, they themselves don’t see much of the benefit.

Masternaut has resolutely knocked that on the head with its latest in-cab device, the Masternaut Pro. It brings a whole range of information and productivity tools into the cab.

Drivers can exchange delivery addresses and other despatch information with their base, using Masternaut Connect. They can gain instant driving style feedback to fine-tune their performance. They can access the EcoDrive application to get up-to-date information on their driving scores on a day, week or monthly basis. 

They can also use satellite navigation, which Masternaut describes as having been enhanced from a leading navigation engine. It provides advanced route planning, real-time 3D map visualisation and turn-by-turn voice instructions. 

Pro also automatically receives real-time traffic information over the air to provide live estimated times of arrival and real-time re-routing around traffic congestion. Drivers are able to plan trips based on multiple destinations and optimise them to find the best route.

Meanwhile, fleet managers can access real-time driver location information using Masternaut Live, deploying the closest drivers to each job, while the EcoDrive application provides in-depth and accurate analysis of trends in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

All in all, a compelling package.
