Tracks

Our preview release received lots of development hours over the last month. Our new Tracks features are designed to help operators stay updated on critical real-time data without lots of extra clicks or waiting.

First, we added some quick select date range options to the calendar. With one click, you can select today, yesterday, this week, and last week. No more using the calendar for date ranges that you select time and time again. Trips also honor the exact start and end time selected by the user.

The trips viewing panel also received a few great new features.

  • You can refresh the data at any time to receive the latest data since you last loaded the page.
  • The trips summary includes average speed.

The tracks display on the map now includes the direction of travel, so operators can see at a glance where a vehicle is heading.

Love the current view you've set up? You can now save the active screen (whether Trip List, Timeline, or Track Point List) to your workspace.

Localization

We've added official translations of Hindi and Indonesian to our localization options.

Privacy and off-hours travel

Some fleet vehicles are driven both during work hours and on personal time. Fleet tracking data privacy becomes an issue because employees don't want their personal travel tracked during off-hours. With GpsGate, you can switch between tracking and non-tracking. For one-off situations, you can make a quick manual switch. For daily off-hours or standard routines, you can automate the switch with a click script. Learn more here.
