October 2021

Tracks continues to grow and improve. We know how crucial it is to daily operations for fleets. This month, we've added lots of new functionality around track points: finding the closest track point on the map, one-click view of a track point on the map from the track points list, and sorting columns to better view your track point data. We also warn users when they select an extremely large dataset that may take awhile to run.

Check below for the full notes or read the blog for an overview.

Learn how to update your server.

New

Tracks

  • When viewing a trip on the map, click anywhere on the trip to show the closest track point to that location.
  • Click on a track point in the track points table to show it on the map.
  • It’s now possible to sort the columns in the track point list.
  • Show confirm dialog when selecting a large dataset in the Tracks panel. This can help prevent you selecting a dataset that will take a long time to run.

Maps / ArcGIS

  • ArcGIS Map can now handle maps hosted via enterprise Web Adaptor Portal URL:s.

September 2021

Server administration is now in app! Administrators will no longer need to change between tracking applications and Site Admin in order to change server settings. Use the redesigned main menu to access your settings.

Don't forget to test the features in preview release and provide feedback. Vehicle Status (beta) became customizable with last month's release - you get exactly the data you need with a status template for each role and use case. We've made the new Tracks the default for all users so that they can enjoy the great experience.

August 2021

This month, we've added more functionality to our beta features, and we've also added some goodies for more advanced user cases.

The new Vehicle Status (beta) can now be customized with the data you need. We've also made the new Tracks the default experience for all users.

For more complex use cases with ArcGIS map layers, ArcGIS layers now work with both Google Maps and our 'peek' function. Single device mapper scripts can now use multiple outputs.

Check below for the full notes or read the blog for an overview.

Learn how to update your server.

New

Maps

  • ArcGIS layers can now also run on top of Google Maps! (previously, only the Native Map supported ArcGIS map layers) To use ArcGIS with Google Maps, you have to register for a Google "Map ID." Configure and read more under Site Admin > Maps > Google Maps.
  • Map "peek" tool (press and hold "P") dims the ArcGIS layer and now also all Map UI to show the underlying map.

User Experience

  • Add English UK measurement file.

Developer & System Administration

  • Now you can select multiple outputs for a single device mapper script! Cases like a single long string of data needing to be split into many variables should be simpler to handle and have better performance if implemented with one script.
    To set: return { 'Var1': 12.3, 'Var2':false, 'Var3':'textabc' }
    Setting a single field works the same. Setting multiple outputs requires enabling the new script engine if not already enabled, in SiteAdmin>Settings>Scripts.
  • Update .NET Framework from 4.7 to 4.8.
  • Change library for serializing Avro data to the official Apache.Avro library.

Tracks 2.0 (beta)

  • The default workspace is updated to use the new Tracks panel! Existing workspaces with a Tracks (Legacy) panel have also been updated to use the new Tracks panel. The legacy Tracks panel is available until its removal.
  • We updated the naming to reflect the change: the former Tracks is now Tracks (Legacy) and the former Tracks 2.0 (Beta) is now Tracks.
  • Updated the copy in the Tracks trip list summary.

Vehicle status (beta)

  • Add Vehicle Status Templates. You can now customize the new Vehicle Status feature!
  • Add an option to Edit/Create Vehicle Status templates by right-clicking the Vehicle Status.
  • Clicking the event count in Vehicle Status now opens the Event panel.

Device Plugins

We also updated device plugins and added more supported devices. To see the updates, search for your device on our supported devices page. All individual device pages show the releases for the device manufacturer.

  • Teltonika
  • TopFly
  • CalAmp
  • ERM
  • AstraTelematics
  • Anytrek
  • ATrack
  • Queclink
  • Joint
  • WirelessLinks
  • ORBCOMM

Languages

The following language plugins have been updated over the past month: Chinese, Spanish, and Swedish.

Improved

Maps

  • Login session expire time is extended to 24h for ArcGIS Maps.

POI

  • Add back bitmap icons to POI groups.
  • Improve performance when getting POI.

Reporting

  • Add geofence description as an event report argument.
  • Rename reference "geofence tag"to "geofence group" in event report arguments.

Developer & System Administration

  • Security improvements.
  • Performance and stability improvements.
  • Ensure RabbitMQ message backlog doesn't exceed 50k messages. Once limit is reached, messages are being disregarded.
  • Geofence kml import improvement.
  • Log the request when there is an exception (Geocodefarm).
  • Make the Event Rule Wizard more resilient to lock timeout exceptions.
  • Add SmsMessage to the iOS Tracker device mapper.
Fixed

User Experience

  • Fix bug on color picker.
  • Fix MultiMonitor in Safari.
  • Fix bug where action buttons referencing a click script wouldn't show.

Tracks

  • Fix track export for tracks containing invalid altitudes.

POIs

  • Fix possible NullReferenceException in Poi EventRules when a POI has been deleted.
  • Fix POI service startup.
  • Fix custom fields for POI categories shared between applications.

Reporting

  • Fix (a tiny one!): fix one cell with the wrong border color in the FU1005 Fuel Refill Report (Detailed).
  • Fix the Time On Site Report (TS1009) not rendering on some servers.

Developer & System Administration

  • SAML: fix cross site request, some workspace saving & loading issues, and a typo.
  • Fix GetTransientFieldScriptsByUser.
  • geofence.find(lon,lat) in scripts without specified group, with group names included in returned geofence objects.
  • POI: Fix custom field input rendering.
  • Fix POI pagination in REST.
  • Fix issue with adding/updating users through REST.
  • Fix issue with logging in to Site Admin when still using SOAP services after SOAP deprecation (issue triggered by Db Connection starvation).
  • Fix importing application templates with removed and renamed languages (ignore those errors).
  • Fix a rare case of GpsGate Service crashing.
Deprecated

The new Tracks experience is now the default experience and Tracks (Legacy) is deprecated.

As of August 17, 2021, GpsGate removed support for Internet Explorer 11. IE11 users will receive a warning in their browser. We recommend updating your web browser.

February 2021

In addition to a new official Portuguese translation, we've got lots of tweaks and UI improvements. You can also now enable/disable map providers for the Fleet app, giving you more control of the end user experience. Read more highlights here or dive into the details with the release notes below.

New

Fleet

  • Map providers can now be enabled/disabled (specifically for the Fleet app) on the server using the _FleetAppUseMap privilege. Supported maps are Google Maps and ArcGIS map.

Localization

  • Portuguese' is completely updated. The language flavor is Brazilian Portuguese. The separate 'Portuguese Brazil' language is removed.

General
