The new Geotab GO device has arrived. Geotab has officially launched the Geotab GO9, a next generation fleet tracking device. What is Geotab GO9? Boby Multani, one of Geotab’s Product Owners, provides a walk-through of the new features and explains why it’s the must-have IoT device for GPS fleet tracking.
What’s new in the Geotab GO9?
Although the GO9 has the same physical appearance as the GO8, internally, it has been redesigned from the ground up.
The GO9 features a powerful new 32-bit processor that makes it our most powerful telematics device to date. With this new device, you are getting four times more memory and five times more RAM than its predecessor, which dramatically improves longevity and lets it work with a wider array of functions.
We’ve also included the latest and greatest Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) module to support increasingly accurate location data. Like always, fleets can view vehicle location, trip history, and all their vehicle and driving trends data in MyGeotab.
Geotab is an open fleet management software designed to give you total control of your fleet and its inventory. To ensure that your business operates in compliance with prevailing industry standards, practices, and policies. The software offers users with a scalable option that they can tailor to suit their existing business operations. Including workflows, systems, and setup, making adoption and implementation easy and simple.
Geotab provides companies with a string of products and technologies. That allow drivers to effectively manage their logs and ensure their safety by monitoring their hours and fatigue levels. Geotab also offers a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) functionality, enabling drivers to integrate their iOS or Android device into the system. While creating driver applications through Geotab’s open APIs and SDK.
Data that is second to none
Highly accurate GPS vehicle tracking
Collect rich, accurate data on vehicle location, ignition, trip distance and time, engine idling, speed and more. Even if your vehicle is parked indoors and underground, Geotab’s GPS vehicle tracking and telematics starts recording as soon as you begin driving. The GO9 introduces the new Global Navigation Satellite System module (GNSS) for faster latch times and increasingly accurate location data.
Engine and battery health assessments
Extract valuable information on vehicle health and status. Record VIN, odometer, engine faults, seat belt usage and more. This data not only helps prioritize vehicle maintenance, but also helps audit vehicle use to identify both safe and risky driving habits.
Advanced vehicle data capture
Vehicles send data from a multitude of sources, including the engine, the drivetrain, the instrument cluster and other subsystems. Utilizing multiple internal networks, the GO9 captures much of this data and results in the richest collection of information.
Breakthrough accident detection & notification
Set up email or desktop alerts that provide you with the first notice of loss. If a suspected collision is detected, detailed forensic data will be automatically uploaded from the GO device to allow for forensic reconstruction of the event. What’s more, the GO9 also has the unique ability to detect in-vehicle reverse collisions.
Geotab offers exceptional harsh-event data (acceleration, braking, cornering, etc.) and collision reconstruction through our patented algorithms and the GO device’s accelerometer. The GO9’s gyroscope improves on the current X/Y/Z axis acceleration logging by providing a real-time sense of the vehicle’s orientation. The GO9 can track and analyze vehicle movement more accurately than before, particularly on winding or bumpy roads.
In-vehicle driver coaching
Improve driving behaviors, like speeding and idling, by playing an audible alert buzzer or coach the driver with spoken words (available as an add-on). Immediate feedback will enhance fleet safety and reinforce company policy, and encourage your drivers to take immediate corrective action.

Industry Leading Secure Connection
Protect Your Data with Geotab’s End-to-End Platform Security
We use authentication, encryption, and message integrity verification for Geotab GO vehicle tracking devices and network interfaces. Each Geotab Go tracking device uses a unique ID and non-static security key, making it difficult to fake a device’s identity. Over-the-air updates use digitally-signed firmware to verify that updates comes from a trusted source.
Our Security Strengths:
- End-to-end security using authentication
- Message integrity verification
- Individualized devices with unique ID
- Non-static security keys
- Digitally-signed firmware
- Independent third-party expert validation
Geotab works with Industry Associations, Universities, and Authorities to advance cybersecurity in the telematics industry. Geotab incorporates the best of what they learn into Geotab and validates their implementation through rigorous third-party penetration testing. We then share these proven best practices throughout our industry.
