The Geotab IOX-GARMINWT connects GO6 and GO7 devices to GARMIN devices to provide better in-vehicle, driver-dispatcher communication for customers who specifically use dispatchers to communicate with their drivers. As an Authorized GARMIN Partner, Geotab provides seamless integration with some devices on the GARMIN platform. Two-way communication is important for smooth operations, so the IOX-GARMINWT offers a reliable channel for your drivers and dispatchers.
Once connected, the driver can use the GARMIN as an interface for communication with the dispatcher. It can be used to send routes and “stops” data to the driver for faster communication, increasing the efficiency of the fleet. Using the GARMIN device, drivers can change their status by touching the screen, recording electronic HOS (hours of service) logs and eliminating the need for paper records. This IOX expander monitors for device disconnection, giving you 100% up-time for communication.
The IOX-GARMINWT supports any listed GARMIN models that use the FMI 45 interface and comes with the FMI 45 cable (North America), which offers data and traffic.
Who Should Use This
Fleets that rely on drivers and make multiple deliveries per trip will benefit the most from the integration of a GARMIN device through IOX-GARMINWT. It will help you best optimize a route for a driver and send it down to the GARMIN device remotely. The IOX-GARMINWT can also send verified and time-stamped messages to the GARMIN device with instructions and directions, offering a basis of navigation and maintaining communication for drivers.

IOX (Input / Output Expanders)
IOX (Input / Output Expanders) plug directly into the GO device and are used to extend the GO device to peripherals in your vehicle. Leveraging the CAN networks that run on the GO device, IOXs can be daisy-chained together to add multiple peripherals to the GO device. This adds flexibility to your implementation, even after installation, and means the Geotab solution can continue to grow with your fleet.
