US firm Navman Wireless has added Google Maps to its OnlineAVL2 real-time fleet tracking and management system, which enables it to offer live traffic and 360 degree photographic street views.

This integration with the Google Maps API Premier equips fleet operators with better information for optimising routing, according to Navman.

The system now features Google Map Live Traffic Layer, which allows dispatchers to use real-time traffic conditions for vehicle assignments as well as re-routing.

In addition, Google Street View allows dispatchers to zoom, rotate and pan through ground-level street photos to help drivers navigate to specific locations.

The OnlineAVL2 also uses Google Maps as the mapping platform to display real-time GPS-based vehicle location information.
