SmartBridge Mobile

Smartbridge Mobile Overview

SmartBridge Mobile is the smartest, most fully featured radio head in the market. The radio is now an app; installed and updated automatically from the Google Playstore. The radio body goes under the seat and SmartBridge Mobile delivers a user friendly, operations focussed, fully integrated front end radio experience like no other. With your choice of tablet, a 7-10" touch screen interface, integration with voice, messaging, contacts, AVL/GPS, operations, and health and safety features. Separating the user interface and functionality from the RF body results in a huge simplification of installation, upgrades (software and hardware), configuration, and applying new features and enhancements. Visits to the vehicle for firmware updates are a thing of the past. Whether you have 10 or 1,000 radio's in the field, the simplicity of management, training, user satisfaction and cost reductions will be profound.
