The integration of GpsGate Server and ATrack devices with Garmin FMI includes bi-directional messaging for job management, where drivers can accept or reject jobs and navigate to them using the Garmin device. Finished jobs can be marked as done and chat is supported both for pre-defined messages and canned responses. Garmin FMI version 2.6 and 2.7 are supported.
