Welcome to the future of vehicle ownership and management. Hino INSIGHT has one objective: increase uptime and efficiency. It achieves that goal by integrating Telematics with remote diagnostics and case management that works with you every mile on the road.


Hino’s connected vehicle platform enhances fleet safety and performance across key areas, including economy, digital vehicle inspection reports (DVIR), and integrated state mileage reporting. INSIGHT allows you to track fuel economy by the entire fleet, create and store DVIR records electronically, seamlessly report state mileage, and compare your fleet performance to others.
Hino INSIGHT also offers instant notifications, allowing owners to address things like diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) or low DEF levels without delay—meaning less downtime and lower maintenance. With Hino INSIGHT, DTCs report instantly, you are alerted any time DEF levels are low or quality has been compromised, you receive reports when a regen is needed, started, interrupted, or completed, and geofencing monitors mapped boundaries.
Communication is a key factor to success, so it’s no surprise Hino INSIGHT offers communication tools that save time and money. Hino INSIGHT integrates scheduling, service, and reminder communications across the board. Service updates keep you in the know regarding the status of service stops while preventive maintenance (PM) reminders are programmed so you never miss a PM interval. Help from a dedicated call center aids in scheduling, and with top-efficiency record keeping, every file is seamlessly recorded.


DTCs are often overlooked or ignored and the result can be catastrophic. With Telogis-powered INSIGHT Telematics, however, you can instantly see DTCs as they occur. DTCs are transmitted in real time by INSIGHT Telematics to the owner and to Hino via standard-fit wireless connectivity. Then, using both software and live technicians, INSIGHT Remote Diagnostics (RD) analyzes the DTC and a diagnosis is determined.
As the DTC is diagnosed, INSIGHT RD assigns a severity level. Once that’s done, INSIGHT RD notifies the owner and the dealer of the DTC severity level via email, phone, or text, and suggests the best steps to solve the issue. Next, INSIGHT Case Management (CM) call center coordinates the repair for the owner at the closest dealer with the necessary parts. INSIGHT CM then equips the dealer with all the necessary information before your vehicle arrives at the shop, where a technician will verify the DTC.
Throughout the entire service or repair process, INSIGHT CM updates the owner with alerts as to the status of the vehicle.
