It's the perfect solution for parades, tour buses, park shuttles, ride vehicles, and other location applications.
Onboard Player's essential functionality is GPS-based triggering. Multiple routes or vehicles, directional triggers, and integrated audio players are all optional, and can be turned on or off as required for your project.
