MyGeotab together with technology makes driving much easier. Here’s four ways to simplify your time on the road.
Find the busy roads, and then avoid them.
You can save petrol and time by running a Trip History report on MyGeotab for your commute over the course of a few days, modifying your route each day, and finding which takes the least amount of time. As a bonus, you can also run a Fuel Usage report to see the average fuel economy and total fuel used during these trips, and see which one is the most environmentally friendly and economical. Use technology to help make your day more productive.

Lighten your lead-foot.
By speeding, you’re not only making it unsafe for others, but you’re also using, consuming far more fuel than needed. Set up a Rule in MyGeotab to beep your GO device when you exceed 10 km over the speed limit. Later, run an Exceptions report with the created rule… you may surprise yourself how many times you go over that unintentionally in your daily commute.
- An Example of an Exception Report:
Find where you’ve parked.
Whether you’ve parked your car on the other side of town, or in the outskirts of the mall parking lot, just open up MyGeotab on your phone’s browser, and tap “Maps,” and filter for your car. Wherever you parked last will be the shown location of your car on the MyGeotab map. As a bonus, it will also tell you how long you’ve been shopping at the mall.
Keep your car in tip-top shape.
Since the GO device plugs directly into the OBDII diagnostic port, setup a rule in MyGeotab to alert you whenever the engine light comes on. When it does, you can easily run an Exceptions report, and see which part of your car made the light turn on. As a bonus, set up a maintenance reminder in MyGeotab to remind of your next service appointment, either by odometer reading or by date.
