Auriga Systems Releases New In-Vehicle Unit, 360° Eclipse
Auriga Systems, the UK-based Data Dispatch supplier for taxi and private hire companies, has released the Drive 360° Eclipse, a new 5” screen in-vehicle data unit to partner its office-based Data Dispatch system, Evocab.
The 360° Eclipse combines the mobility and instant installation benefits of modern PDA devices with a glorious 5” high resolution (800x480) screen, and a range of advanced features to assist taxi and private hire drivers in their working lives.
Blueline Taxis Newcastle’s owner Ian Shanks took part in the 360° Eclipse’s Beta test, and has been delighted by its performance:
After testing the 360° Eclipse, Blueline Taxis immediately ordered 600 units for their fleet. A further six Auriga customers have also placed fleet wide upgrade orders, bringing the current total of 360° Eclipse orders to 2,000 units – making it Auriga’s fastest ever selling in-vehicle device.
Auriga’s Product Marketing Manager, Nick Godfrey-Morgan, hailed its release as a revolutionary step in Dispatch System technology: “We have produced a device which offers an unprecedented marriage of style and functionality. The unique combination of a mobile device with PMR connectivity is something the industry has been crying out for, and which we are delighted to be the first to offer.”
The 360° Eclipse is the first unit in Auriga’s brand new range, Drive 360°, which offers taxi and private hire drivers a complete ‘next generation’ dispatch solution. The forthcoming 360° Connect is patented technology, offering the ability to use PDA devices with a company’s privately owned and maintained radio network; and providing a hub allowing the connection of printers, meters, and other external devices. 360° Connect is the missing link that finally gives PDA-based devices the full range of functionality enjoyed by traditional installed devices.
