OAKVILLE, ONTARIO - Geotab, Inc. (GEOTAB) launched GO5, a small, plug and play form factor device that encompasses powerful GPS vehicle tracking capabilities.

Its compact size eliminates the need for professional installation, and the device enables management of vehicles, staff productivity, fuel, customer visits, routes, safety, insurance for all vehicles through the internet, according to Neil Cawse, GEOTAB's CEO.

The GO5's patented tracking algorithm tracks important details works in places with little coverage. Additionally, the built-in 3D accelerometer provides analysis of accidents, harsh braking, rapid acceleration, and unsafe turns. Vehicle warnings and alerts can be activated with the creation of rules, which can be set up through MyGeotab, GEOTAB's web-hosted fleet management software.
