Paired with the free Mappls Super App, the trackers offer users the real-time location of assets or vehicles, geofencing alerts, overspeeding and undue stoppage alarms, daily distance traveled and trip replay, ignition on/off alerts, and driving behavior, among many other features.

Mappls’ Gadgets Vehicle Trackers can be deep-installed (fixed into one vehicle), or plug-and-play (portable and hence, easily shareable across multiple vehicles), as per user requirements. The product line is priced between Rs 4,490 to Rs 12,990, as per product features, subscription model and warranty.

Users also experience uninterrupted entertainment with Full HD 1080p Media Playback support, 9″ or 10″ IPS Crystal Clear Display, High-Quality Audio Output, and Smartphone Mirror Link connectivity.

Finally, ICENAV offers an unparalleled navigation experience to consumers through NaviMaps – offline navigation with live traffic updates, and Mappls App; which offers house-level maps, 3D and RealView mapping, Junction View, speed camera and traffic alerts, speed breaker and pothole alerts, and more.

ICENAV 7464 comes in two size variants: 9 inches and 10 inches, priced at INR 37,990 and INR 38,990, respectively. This elite Android-based audio, video, offline, and online navigation system has 64 GB of internal memory, compatibility with CarPlay and Android Auto, a built-in Play Store, WiFi Hotspot, and more.

The Navitainment product line also includes ICENAV 7216, a premium Android-based audio, video, offline, and online navigation system integrated with the Mappls app and with a built-in Play Store, WiFi Hotspot, and more.

Mappls Smart Helmet Kits (Navisor & Navaudio)

A significant percentage of India’s population relies on two-wheelers for intracity and intercity commutes, for personal or professional use. Riders of these two-wheelers, the motorcyclists and bikers, often use phone mounts on their bikes for navigation, causing them to take their eyes off the road.
