EROAD Fleet Management Software Releases & New Features – March 2024

January – March 2024

We’ve been busy collaborating with our customers, listening to feedback, and designing new products and features to help our customers get more out of their day to day and improve their fleet performance.


Real-time Driver Logbook Hours and Status now on Fleet Map

In January we made a significant enhancement to EROAD’s NZTA-approved Electronic Logbook. EROAD Day logbook simplifies fatigue management by enabling drivers to capture work and rest hours via a smartphone or tablet.

Now, when your drivers use EROAD Day Logbook their hours are available direct from the Fleet Map, helping to simplify job management, improve visibility, and help to reduce the risk of non-compliance and big fines. It’s a game-changer for logistics & dispatch.

  • View vehicle status, alongside driver logbook status, e.g. vehicle is driving, and logbook is in work time.
  • Logbook counters change from grey, to yellow, to red to make it easier to spot drivers who are close to, or in violation of the work-time rules
  • During a rest break counter becomes purple and starts counting down the required rest time remaining, making it easier to distinguish between drive time and rest time.
  • Sort driver list by the most or least remaining work hours for the day or week.

Better for Business: MyEROAD Fleet Map Enhancements

In February, MyEROAD Fleet Map had an upgrade, delivering a superior mapping experience tailored for your fleet management needs.

The new-look base layer surfaces valuable map data that’s always been in the background, but wasn’t visible – such as toll roads, highways, exit numbers and heavy vehicle weight limits. This upgrade brings the essentials to the forefront, ensuring you have the most relevant information at your fingertips.

  • Better definition between road types, such as highways and toll roads
  • More clearly displays restrictions that could impact your route planning
  • Handy new features like exit numbers or delivery entrances to make navigation easier
  • Transport-specific points of interest, such as weigh stations and truck parking

Detailed vehicle & assets export now available

Thanks to customer feedback, we’ve made some changes to the vehicle & assets export. The new CSV export now provides all the key information including groups/fleets. It’s an efficient and easy way for customers to get a list of their whole fleet.


Boost heavy vehicle health with EROAD CAN Bus Connect

EROAD’s latest data product, CAN Bus Connect is designed to boost heavy vehicle health and efficiency.

By connecting your in-cab telematics device (Ehubo 2) to the vehicles Engine Control Module (ECM), CAN Bus Connect supports fleets to improve preventive maintenance programs through customisable engine health alerts, and to reduce costs through detailed fuel consumption reporting.

CAN Bus Connect is a truly smart telematics solution. It’s been designed to empower fleet managers, delivering intelligence from a trusted data source – your vehicle’s ECM. We understand what fleet managers need, and we’ve built CAN Bus Connect from the ground-up, leveraging our industry experience and working closely with large fleet operators.

New real-time overspeed alerts for fleet managers/operators

We’re continuously looking at ways to help our customers improve driver safety. Critical to improving safety is reducing speed. Speed may not always cause a crash but it will determine whether someone is killed, injured or walks away.

Our latest feature to help fleets manage and reduce speeding is our enhanced overspeed alerts feature, which alerts operators if a vehicle breaches a speeding threshold for any speed zone, e.g. going 15kmh over the road speed.

Fleet hierarchy now available for large and enterprise fleets

Fleet hierarchy is a new user permissions tool in MyEROAD designed specifically for larger, more complex fleets. By organising your fleet into hierarchy groups, it makes it much easier to manage and automate user permissions.


  • Set up groups and sub-groups to match your hierarchical structure
  • Drag and drop feature lets you easily move or add fleets to groups
  • Fleets can be added to multiple groups in the structure, if desired
  • Fleets don’t have to be in the hierarchy – they can be separate too
  • Manage user permissions by selecting or removing groups

To turn on this feature, speak to your account manager or call 0800 437 623.
