Mapped Route Trips History

Geotab GPS Tracking System


With the Geotab GPS tracking system you can:

  • Create routes for your drivers
  • Print turn by turn directions
    (or dispatch the address or route to an in-vehicle Garmin device
    – option available on some Geotab models)
  • Show your planned route on the map vs. actual mapped route that was driven, to determine how much the driver deviated from your planned route

This image below shows how the Geotab GPS tracking system displays some of the mapped route trips history information.


The Geotab GPS vehicle tracking system shows the mapping in various formats:

  • Microsoft Bing road view
  • Microsoft Bing Bird’s Eye view (same as “satellite” view)
    • Microsoft Bing Bird’s Eye view with angled view
      Allows you to see sides of buildings and even read some signs
  • Google Street view – very impressive – turn 360 degrees and you may see the coffee shop where the truck stopped
