About Brightmile

Why am I being offered the Brightmile app?

The Brightmile App is designed to:

  • Clearly display your Geotab Safety scores

  • Give you tangible rewards for safe driving

Does the Brightmile App measure my driving behaviour?

The short answer is no. Brightmile for Geotab does not use your phone GPS or any other sensors to record behaviour. All driving behaviour data is from the Geotab telematics device already installed in your vehicle. 

Brightmile does also have a standalone version of the App with in built telematics. This version of the app is not used by your fleet. 


What driving behaviour metrics is Brightmile focused on?

Brightmile helps drivers focus on up to five Geotab driving behaviour metrics (Pillars). The exact setup will depend on your individual fleet and the Pillars considered to be most important. Please refer to your onboarding material or contact your Geotab fleet manager to understand the driver scorecard being used.

Common Questions


Is Brightmile for Geotab the same as the Brightmile standalone app?

It is the same app but when signing in the Brightmile app recognises Geotab users and reconfigures to behave differently. The core experience is the same but we remove all of the built in Brightmile Telematics and use Geotab data instead. As part of this we adjust a number of other smaller features in the app that are not relevant to Geotab.


There are no trips being shown on Brightmile

If you have logged in to Brightmile and have completed at least one trip in your Geotab equipped vehicle since you should see your trips in the Brightmile Trips page. If there are no trips showing then there is an issue with the setup of your Geotab driver account or installation of your Geotab Device. Contact your fleet administrator to troubleshoot your Geotab setup.
