Geotab Drive - 4.0.0 released for Android


The Geotab Drive application is a smart in-vehicle solution for Hours of Service (HOS), DVIR (Driver Vehicle Inspection Report), Driver Identification, Messaging (Beta), and Custom Add-ins. 4.0.0 is now available for Android and will be available for iOS in the near future.  

What’s new with 4.0.0:

New Server-Side Updates

In the new version, the Geotab Drive app is integrally tied with the MyGeotab fleet management software. This means that when your MyGeotab server updates, the Geotab Drive app on your phones or tablets will also automatically update. Regardless of whether you are using Geotab Drive on the Android and iOS platform, this change eliminates the need to manually update your devices.

DVIR Workflow: Faster and More User-Friendly

Users can integrate Geotab’s DVIR solution into an existing inspection process with minimal effort. New prompts and visual feedback allow users to quickly and easily certify and review an inspection or repair.
