Description
The Kuber-9 Driver App by Diplomat is designed to provide a mobile interface between despatch control and the vehicle driver. It will install and operate on mobile devices running Android 4.2 or higher.
Features
The primary function of Kuber-9 is to provide the driver with an interface to despatch control and to receive and accept jobs, and supports the following features: -

  • Logging on & off including breaks
  • Zone selection
  • Job bidding
  • Job acceptance and status updates such as POB and STC
  • Payment collection details
  • Messaging
  • SOS Panic alert
  • Turn by turn navigation when interfaced with a suitable App
  • Screen orientation in either portrait or landscape

Optional features: -

Operation & Charges
The cost of operation in respect of mobile data charges will be borne by the owner of the mobile device, or whoever pays for the airtime contract; the typical monthly data usage will be in the region of 15Mb which is negligible in relation to a typical mobile data bundle of say 1Gb per month.
Navigation
The Kuber-9 Driver App will interface with MapFactor to provide turn by turn navigation from the driver’s current position to the pickup and, from the pick up to the destination.
Accessories
The problem with most mobile phone vehicle mounts is that they rely upon a clamp or clip arrangement to secure the device in its holder.
There is a range of magnetic mounts marketed by Merkury and WizGear that overcome such problems which are available from various retail and online stores including Halfords and Amazon.
