Bi-directional Messaging

The fleet tracking service enables basic two-way text messaging between users of the service and vehicle drivers.

On the service, the messages are presented in a familiar e-mail application style, with separate folders for incoming and outgoing messages.

An automated receipting process verifies whether messages have been successfully delivered to the device, as well as whether they've been read.

Inside the vehicle the messaging functionality is largely dependant upon the chosen hardware, but features such as canned or quick messages are typically provided for quick and easy communication.
