Leeds, UK, 01 December 2010

Masternaut has released the world's first feature-rich vehicle tracking application for Android smartphones. The web-based service allows users to keep track of company vehicles and fleets on smartphones and tablet PCs from manufactures such as HTC, Samsung, Motorola, LG, Sony Ericsson and soon Panasonic. The Android development follows the introduction of an Apple iPhone version of the app earlier this year.

The Masternaut Rapide Android app offers the core functionalities of the live Masternaut service on a mobile device, which gives fleet and service engineering managers a real-time link to important operational information whenever they are away from the office.

"The Android operating system is the world's fastest growing smartphone platform. Around 200,000 Android devices are activated by Google each day. Therefore, we are pleased to be able to offer customers a free app that will allow them to access important Masternaut information on the go. This will be very useful for transport managers and mobile service engineers," says Johann Levy, Research and Development Manager, Masternaut.

Rapide makes real-time and historic vehicle information available to managers who use the information to monitor the exact movement of their entire fleet, with instant updates tracked by global positioning satellites. The system can also locate and monitor individual vehicles as well as provide their movement histories. For the mobile engineer, it gives an instant view of their nearest colleagues, customer contacts and next job.

"This is an extremely fast and reactive app thanks to the Masternaut system. There is no need to download web pages and you only download the data you need, so it is very cost effective. It provides a live on-map view of vehicles and staff with satellite images. Like our earlier release of Rapide for the iPhone, this Android development will be an important tool for the future of fleet and mobile worker management. We also offer a dedicated Rapide app for Blackberry smartphone users," says Johann Levy.
