Automatic Pro - But someone else needs the data

Can I use Automatic pro and have the data come to my phone/app even though I'm not driving it? I want to use it but my drivers won't be able to have the app on their issued phone. But I have the app on mine. And can I have the data from three different trucks on my one phone?

Hi Chantz,

You can have several vehicles installed on one Automatic account and you can track them on your phone using the Automatic Pro adapter without having a phone present in the vehicle once Setup has been completed.  Please keep in mind that you can only track one vehicle at a time on your phone and there is no central dashboard, which is the reason why Automatic Pro is not supported as a fleet management tool.

I hope this helps!

Derrick,

Thanks so much. And I appreciate the article. The good thing is that I'm not looking to track vehicles at once, only get the data. I have a need to track mileage on a consistent basis. There are only 3 vans and they are confined to primarily campus settings. So I know where the vans are most times. But I want to simplify getting the mileage logged on a daily basis, etc. So with that explanation, would you agree that the Automatic Pro is the solution for me?

That would work, you can even export the data for completed trips using the Web Dashboard
