MiX Fleet is now available for iOS in English, German, Dutch, Italian, French, Spanish and Chinese and versions for Android and Blackberry will soon be published. In the near future, customers will also be able to track and monitor their fleets using tablets such as the iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab. MiX Fleet is perfectly suited to smartphone and tablet technology and brings vehicle tracking right to fleet operators’ fingertips.
“Extending MiX Mobile to include support for FM customers is a significant milestone for MiX Telematics as we now have a complete range of mobile apps,” says Charles Tasker, Managing Director of MiX Telematics (International), adding,“Practically, it means that irrespective of which MiX Telematics onboard computer our customers have installed, they can now track their vehicles using a smartphone if they wish to do so.”
In late 2009, MiX Telematics was the first in the fleet telematics industry to release a vehicle tracking application for the iPhone – back then for its XDrive, FM Protector and MiX 3000 customers. This was followed by mobile apps for MiX DriveTime, MiX Track and Matrix Internet Tracking. The fact that it is now available for its FM customers means that their base of hundreds of thousands of connected vehicles can now be conveniently tracked and monitored via smartphones.
Fleet customers who are registered users of FM-Web will automatically have access to MiX Fleet, using their usual username and password. FM-Web is MiX Telematics’ premiere web-based service for commercial fleet operators.
MiX Fleet mobile provides real convenience to customers, allowing them to keep track of their assets wherever they are. Customers can immediately determine the current status of their vehicles, tracking them as they are moving or locating them while stationary. Historical trip summaries and the plotting of these trips on a map represent additional features that make it easier for customers to manage their fleets while on the go.
