Welcome to the first newsletter of 2012!

This is the first newsletter of 2012 and we already have some quite exciting news to present!
On the commercial side, we have managed for the fourth year to maintain the prestigious AAA (Triple-A) credit rating.
Only approximately 1% of all Danish companies are currently able to maintain the
AAA rating!

This platform is offering unseen performance, flexibility and openness for advanced fleet management applications. The best part is that it is fully backward compatible with the Garmin FMI and the Mobile Data Terminal API. Read more below...

Navigation and Messaging Platform (NMP)


The Logic IO Navigation and Messaging Platform (NMP) is a powerful and extremely open platform for implementation of state-of the-art advanced fleet management applications integrating navigation, messaging, driver identification and job dispatch capabilities. The NMP platform works on almost any Microsoft Windows CE 6.0 based device and is based on the market leading Sygic navigation engine tightly integrated into the powerful RTCU concept.
The NMP is fully backward compatible with already developed Garmin FMI based applications and includes full Garmin FMI functionality. Likewise, the
full Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) API is fully supported opening up for a new level of customized user interaction.


The key features of the Navigation and Messaging Platform:

  • Based on Sygic navigation engine under Windows CE 6.0.
  • Versatile range of devices supported (large screens, rugged, etc).
  • Fully compatible with the Garmin FMI level 2 API.
  • Fully compatible with the Mobile Data Terminal API.
  • Single GPS source with data from the RTCU device.
  • Custom device logo and waypoints icons.
  • Customer language and unicode support.
  • Remote upgrade and configuration capabilities.
  • User written Windows CE applications can be deployed on the same device.
  • Open architecture allowing specialized functionality to be added.


The NMP is currently supported by the RTCU MX2i pro/pro+ product from firmware version 2.62 and later.

To connect the RTCU MX2i pro/pro+ device to the NMP device a special interface cable is required. It is also possible to connect the NMP device to the RTCU IDE Simulator allowing rapid development of complete fleet management and messaging applications within the RTCU IDE environment.

For detailed information about the NMP interface please consult the RTCU IDE
(V5.95 or later) on-line help or manual.

Please contact Logic IO for additional information and device availability.
