As Android mobile phone internet usage use has become more prevalent, so has
the average rate of data usage among users. Many plans allot for as little as
250 MB per month to the highest data usage allotment of 10 GB. To get an idea
of what you can do with a monthly allotment of 250 MB, you can watch around 15
youtube videos and visit around 1000 text-based websites (ie. blogs or reddit),
but usage can easily sneak up on you in the form of automatic updates of your
email, facebook or twitter accounts, the use of games with sponsored
advertisement, or GPS navigation applications. On most tariffs, the user is
allowed 250 MB of fast internet and for the rest of the month is only allowed
use of a vastly slower connection speed (called “throttling”).
Likely this “throttling”, however annoying, will be replaced by overage
charges. According to a leaked T-Mobile memo, recently released to TMOnews , T-Mobile can no longer compete with their
low-range 200 MB unlimited data plans and will replace it with an overage fee
system whereby the user would pay a few pennies for every MB used.
Furthermore, visit any mobile phone forum and you will find customers
dealing with large fees because they hadn’t monitored their data usage. Like
this man, recently reported in the BBC who was
charged in one-month 200£ overage fees just for using his facebook

A couple of months ago we changed the access to the old ENAiKOON
fleet-control-web in order to enhance the privacy. Since then, the connection
to your inViu account works with the new SSO login.
As part of the introduction of the new, more secure online registration, the
old username will have to be changed to an e-mail address. Further information
about the change and directions can be accessed at: https://www.enaikoon.com/home/introduction/
The 15th September 2012 has been chosen as the latest date of the
conversion of the user name to an e-mail address.
Due to the request of some of our customers, we have extended this
deadline to the 15th October 2012.
If you have not changed your ENAiKOON iD to an e-mail address yet, please do
so as soon as possible! As of the 15th of October you will not be able to log
in to inViu without using an e-mail address. For a fee of 49 € (excluding VAT),
ENAiKOON will take in charge switching your login to an e-mail address.
Changing the user name to an e-mail address
When you log in with your old user name, you will see a window in which you
enter your e-mail address and then press “send“.
Once you have done this, you are logged into your account. You will then
receive an e-mail from email@example.com.
Open the received e-mail and click on the blue link in order to confirm your
Once you have done so your e-mail address has been confirmed and can be used
in combination with your password as your ENAiKOON iD.
If your e-mail address and your password also belong to those of your
Facebook, Google or Yahoo! accounts, you can easily log in by clicking on the
appropriate symbol. You will then only need to confirm the access to your
ENAiKOON iD once. That way you only need to remember one password.
Have you forgotten your password?
In case you have forgotten your password, simply click on the „forgot
password?“ link and you will receive an e-mail with a link that provides a
direct access to your ENAiKOON user account where you will be able to define a

The ENAiKOON web portal inViu pro automatically sends geofence
alert messages per E-mail when a trackable enters or leaves a geofence.
To refresh your memory, a geofence is a virtual fence around a designated area.
It offers security in case of theft as well as help with the daily management
of your trackables, like vehicles, construction equipment, or mobile
In addition to geofence alert messages, there are other alert message e-mail
options in inViu pro, for instance, when the battery voltage
level falls below a certain level. The idle alert message is sent when a
vehicle or construction equipment remains idling for longer than the
pre-defined limit, eliminating unnecessary fuel use.
It can also be called the “special incidents” alert. You can attach cables
to various components of a vehicle from an ENAiKOON locating device, allowing
you to monitor other components of the vehicle or construction equipment. The
operation of a snow plough or salt mill on a snow removing vehicle or the
conditions of a concrete pump on a concrete mixer can be easily monitored.
Another possible application is the monitoring of the door contacts. When the
doors are opened and closed in a vehicle, a message is sent to the servers,
similar to the previously mentioned scenarios, and this information is then
displayed in inViu pro.
Two new meaningful vehicle operations are now combined with the e-mail alert
messages in inViu pro:
It is now possible to only send the alert messages for a “special incident”
when the trackable is inside a geofence at the time of the special incident
It is now possible to only send the alarm messages for a “special incident”
when the trackable is outside of a geofence at the time of the special
One of our customers, a large bakery chain, had baked goods stolen from the
delivery trucks by their own delivery drivers.
The door contact switches from the rear delivery doors were connected to the
digital inputs on the telematic devices ENAiKOON locate-04 and ENAiKOON
locate-06. Once these doors were opened, the door contact switches sent a
signal of the change of status. This information was then immediately sent from
the ENAiKOON locate-06 to the inViu servers. In the web portal, inViu
pro, an alert was set up to send a message when the doors were opened.
The customer received an alert message every time the rear delivery doors were
opened. Now the alert message is only sent when the vehicle is outside of
predefined geofences. Since these geofences are marked around regular bakery
stops, all unapproved “on the road” stops are monitored.
If someone opens the rear delivery doors of the bakery delivery truck and it
is not one of the regularly scheduled delivery stops, the customer is
immediately notified with an alert e-mail message with the location and
timestamp. This allows the customer to promptly react to the situation.
All in all, it is a very effective solution for this particular
Another stolen van was returned to its grateful owner in the Netherlands thanks
to the locate series device that was installed in it. The thieves were unaware
that Generali Verzekeringsgroep had the foresight to install tracking devices
in their vans and cars and that when the van was then stolen, that their every
movement was being tracked in real-time in ENAiKOON’s web portal.
When an employee of Generali, who had parked the van in front of his house,
noticed that it was no longer there he immediately called his supervisor. With
a quick look in the ENAiKOON web portal they were able to determine exactly
where the van was. The thieves had driven it across town and it was parked on a
quiet residential street. At this point Generali decided to inform the
authorities about what had happened. The police then wanted to watch the van to
try and catch the perpetrators.
This was an excellent plan on the part of the local police, because of this
one criminal was apprehended. At first the van was towed to the police head
quarters for a search. There they discovered tools that were most likely used
for already or would in the future be used for a burglary. The thieves had
tried to manipulate the motor management system of the vehicle as well. A
mechanic then had a look over the van, but is now back in the hands of its
rightful owners. Thanks to the ENAiKOON device and the quick thinking on behalf
of the local police there is also one less criminal on the streets in the
According to Hans Verhaar the Expertisedienst Manager at Generali
Verzekeringsgroep “When our van was stolen we were at first shocked. Then we
looked in inViu pro to see the location of the vehicle. We were able to find
our van and then we told the police exactly what had happened. It was recovered
and one person was arrested as a result. Thanks to the device from ENAiKOON we
were able to recover our vehicle easily without a lot of hassle. We knew
immediately where to go to retrieve it and could tell the police where it was
It is now much easier to access the online map in inViu pro for customers
who have slow Internet connections
The construction of the map tiles took awhile to complete, which normally
was the fault of the slow internet connection.
Until now the map tiles had to be re-loaded each time, which could take
awhile until the map was fully displayed, because it had to deal with each
request individually. The map tiles are now stored on the user’s PC.
The storage of the tiles on the PC means that the loading time is reduced,
and now it loads very fast. The default retention period is 7 days before the
map data would be updated again.
For slow data connection lines it is advisable to increase the storage time
to 30 days. To change the storage time simply click on map on the main menu in
inViu pro, when the map is displayed in the middle of the screen click on the
“settings” icon in the top right corner. The settings pop-up window should now
appear, click on the “map” tab and select the box for “Save maps longer (for
low bandwidth)“, just click on “apply” to save this setting. Now you can also
make other settings changes to these settings if you wish, just click on the
close icon when you are done to return to the map screen.
If the map data needs to be updated it is sufficient to simply empty the
browsers cache and restart inViu pro.
By optimising the entire software the online map starts and loads much
faster than before.
Search function improved and the display of the “stated positions”
The search function in the trackable list in the window next to the map has
been improved. The search covers not only trackable data but the “stated
positions” as well.
Two columns have been added to the display window menu table for the
“stated positions”. Now the “trip type” and “reason for the stop” are
Similarly search results are still displayed even if the column associated
with the result currently hidden. For example, the columns “trip type” and
“reason for the stop” are hidden. A search for the name “Miller” will filter
the listed of “stated positions” and shows the only position where the name
“Miller“ is in the hidden column “reason for the stop”.
That means that only the important columns are displayed in the overview,
but that the intelligent search function finds all relevant data quickly and
Text and tool tip box are now included in trackable groups
In the display fields “text” and “tool tip” that appear next to a trackable
when they are activated or when there is a mouse roll-over are now displayed in
the “trackable group”.
To change the settings for these click “edit settings” on main menu on the
left side, then click on “edit reports” and select the icon next to “trackable
list with statistics”.
In the fifth column all of the setting to permanently display the “textbox”
and in the sixth column with the header “tooltip” are the setting for the mouse
rollover display of this information.
Simply check the box and see the on the map the trackable group in the
textbox and / or in the tooltip box.
Heise Online reported on 07-27-2012 that it was possible to read data from a
variety of different devices including measurement devices, barcode scanners,
GSM / GPRS routers, etc. using port scanner software in a wireless network.
Amongst these devices that were readable using this port scanner software were
telematic devices from another provider that included info such as login
details and current position data.
At ENAiKOON our tracking modules ensure that no data is read and cannot be
passed on to unauthorized entities. ENAiKOONs technique works as follows: the
tracking module has new information for the server, like a new position, a
change in speed, ignition on, or other changes of digital or analogue input
information, and then the data is wirelessly sent from the device to the
When the server wants to send data to the tracking device, this has to wait
until the tracking module logs onto the server, only then can the server
transmit data to the tracking module. The server cannot start a connection to
the device to send data or to read what data is on the device.
A request from outside does nothing, since the tracking device does not react.
This could be compared to a phone that can only make calls but not receive

For effective communication with employees it is crucial to control the
workflow and to optimise the distribution of tasks.
ENAiKOON display has been developed in order to make clear and concise
The multi-functional cost-effective display ENAiKOON display-56 is now
available from ENAiKOON:
4 lines of 20 characters
membrane keyboard for number and letter entry
iButton reader for clocking-in and out, access control, etc.
loud signalling device for audible warnings and acknowledgements
easy installation and wiring
The display can be connected to an ENAiKOON locate-06.
It is programmable and can be configured to any workflow parameters.
The display comes with the following features standard:
Reading iButtons with audible acknowledgements. Logging employee working
hours; recording operating hours of vehicles, machines, or equipment;
authorising the use of a vehicle or construction equipment; name of the last
logged-in employee is shown on the display.
Capability of sending messages to the display from ENAiKOON inViu pro.
The dispatcher can see if the driver read the sent message
the driver can confirm the execution of the task by pressing a button.
Supplied with up to 20 individual messages per vehicle status (e.g. “13.4
tons of quality C sand loaded” , “taking a break”, “waiting for the next job”,
“leaving for the day”, “ready for customer Smith,” etc.).
These texts can be changed at any time from the dispatch. The driver can then
select one of these prepared messages and send it to the dispatch.
With this so-called “asynchronous” communication it is not necessary that the
dispatcher and the driver are available at the same time to phone, instead each
can send or receive a message when it is convenient.
Built-in speaker for audible warning sound or acknowledgement of a driver-id
The ENAiKOON display-56 costs only €149 and is available
Often used in business for goal setting, in geocaching as something to find,
sometimes as a gaming term, and most definitely as an adjective, the term
trackable is always used as a noun at ENAiKOON.
A trackable is something that can be tracked using GPS devices. Ranging from
vehicles to equipment and people to animals, trackables can be static or mobile
and require telematics technology for monitoring their safety or protecting
them against theft.
For the average consumer trackables may include a car, a small child,
someone of old age or special needs, pets, a boat, or a camping trailer.
On the other hand, depending on their industry, businesses may want to track
company cars, trucks, shipping containers, delivery parcels, employees,
equipment, machinery, or any asset of value.
The reasons for using telematics for your trackables varies, for many it’s
just to monitor the location of the trackable. Sometimes it’s for theft
prevention and recovery. Other times it’s to record operating hours of
machinery and equipment.
In ENAiKOON’s online GPS tracking software, inViu, users can easily manage
the tracking of all of their trackables on the user-friendly interface where
the locations of all trackables are displayed on a map or as GPS coordinates.
