Zonar is offering the 2020 telematics tablet, a portable device to provide electronic inspection, hours-of-service, instant driver feedback, fuel efficiency, two-way messaging, and advanced commercial navigation in an open platform.

With the new 2020, drivers improve productivity with advanced vehicle operation applications and an easy to navigate touch screen. Data captured with the 2020 is instantly available to fleet managers for reporting and process improvements.

Unique to the 2020 is the ability to ensure inspection compliance and streamline repairs with the patented Electronic Vehicle Inspection Report (EVIR) system. Drivers use the 2020’s built-in RFID reader to scan tags placed at each vehicle inspection point. Drivers identify component conditions using the onscreen QWERTY keyboard and can send pictures of defects with the completed report. All inspection information is available to fleet and maintenance managers through Zonar’s web-based Ground Traffic Control application.

While EVIR helps with inspection compliance, Zonar’s ZLogs helps ensure hours-of-service compliance. Available through 2020 and new to Ground Traffic Control, ZLogs is an hours-of-service application that works to ensure drivers are operating within the limits of safety. Drivers can easily view available hours, update duty status, and electronically submit service records through the 2020 tablet. Specifically designed with the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration (FMCSA) in mind, the 2020 hours-of-service application meets the US DOT standards in 49 CFR Part 395.15.

The 2020 also provides two-way messaging to further enhance fleet productivity and improve communication. The two-way messaging feature includes in-boxes, message templates, and a grouping function for sending messages to specific groups of vehicles. Received addresses from two-way messaging can be tapped and opened up in the 2020 navigation program for accurate turn-by-turn directions.
