Geotab has encased the GO7 in a material to make it waterproof. This process is called “potting” when done to electronics. At this time we believe it will be either the same level of tracking service or a reduced plan for equipment. If you are interested let your account manage know and they will call you once it is released.
Geotab will be closed Monday, 2/15, for Family Day.

With regards to the USB downloader issue addressed on March 2nd 2015, the Geotab development team has since isolated the software problem and released a patched MyGeotab version last night to all applicable servers. As a result, customer USB downloaders should now be fully operational and no further end user action is required. Any outstanding problems in this regard should be addressed to Fleetistics support.
Affecting legacy GO4 RF users only, Geotab is aware of a software issue which has affected RF USB downloader functionality on customer PCs. As a result, these downloaders are not able to successfully download information into the customer database. Our software development team is investigating the matter with high priority. Until the issue is resolved to get the USB downloader functioning again, please log into the PC hosting the RF service and follow these steps:
- Open a web browser and log into MyGeotab with administrative credentials
- Navigate to Administration -> System -> Keys & RF -> PC USB Downloader
- Stop the service (if applicable)
- Enter administrative credentials to the database and start the service.
If an error message appears at this point, click “OK”, and try to start the service once more. Another bulletin will be sent out once further information is released by our software development team. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and thank you for your patience while we work towards a permanent resolution.

Geotab has become aware of an issue affecting customers with a RF USB base station or a USB Key Downloader connected to a PC running Windows 7.1 or Windows 8. During startup,the PC will blue screen if the USB downloader is connected. Geotab is actively working to resolve this issue and will provide a further update once a resolution has been found.
