Users can plan routes, use Google Street View and toggle between satellite and road-map data. Users can also elect to see current traffic patterns, although Rhino doesn't provide an option to view weather.

In addition to these features, businesses can build geofences to get alerts on when a vehicle enters or exits a designated area.

Our interactions with the Rhino sales team were stellar. Representatives didn't try to push a sale, instead informing us about Rhino's services and why our theoretical business should consider a GPS tracking solution. Businesses can contact Rhino's support options via live chat, email or phone.
Compared to other GPS fleet tracking services we evaluated, there are a few drawbacks with Rhino Fleet Tracking. First, the reporting feature is not as robust as some competitors'. Second, users can't overlay weather data on the map's interface. Third, the refresh time, which is 2 minutes, is longer than competitors. Businesses can opt for a more expensive plan that reduces the refresh time to 30 seconds.
