MiX Telematics and Sygic have partnered to integrate Sygic’s fleet navigation into MiX Telematics’s Android-based MiX Rovi – a rugged in-cab terminal built specifically for demanding working environments of commercial fleets.
“Working with Sygic means we can add best-of-breed on-board navigation and geofence capabilities to the MiX Rovi, in addition to other functionality like hours of service, driver feedback and jobs and messaging,” said Catherine Lewis, executive vice president of technology at MiX. “Sygic’s Software Development Kit for Android was easy to work with and allowed us to innovate in areas previously not possible, such as speed monitoring based on road speed limits or custom geofence speed limits, which help our customers to monitor and improve the behavior of their drivers.”
According to a press release, Sygic offers high-quality global maps, which are stored offline to allow powerful navigation functionality even when out of cellular coverage.
“The maps look really smart on the MiX Rovi seven-inch color touchscreen,” Lewis said. “Of equal importance to us has been Sygic’s world-class support of our development activities.”
“Our partnership with a global player like MiX Telematics confirms our growing position within the fleet management market,” said Michal Stencl, Sygic CEO. “We share MiX Telematics’s goal to deliver technology that boosts fleet efficiency and safety. Working together simply means a superior solution for the end customer.”
