January 2023

For our first release of 2023, we're laying the groundwork for exciting things to come in GpsGate. January's release of our fleet tracking platform includes more map integrations and detailed accumulator data to help you get the full picture of fleet movements. Enjoy new double-clicking capabilities on panels and columns within the application to minimize or maximize the views and the data you need. With security in focus, we've made improvements to build upon our commitment to keeping your fleet data secure.

Benefit from the latest and greatest GpsGate features by keeping your platform updated.

New

User Experience
Our team of developers is always working to make GpsGate more intuitive to use. This month, we've changed the way that you can interact with panels and columns:

  • Double-click a panel header or panel tab to minimize and maximize it. Similar to Window behavior.
  • Double-click a column separator to minimize and maximize the column.

Developer & System Administration
Do you use ArcGIS map layers to better visualize local conditions? With this month's update, we've integrated Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) within our ArcGIS map layer. Retrieve geofenced map tiles and the microdata you need for better vehicle scheduling and routing. To use this function, update the ArcGIS Map API to 3.42 and 4.25 respectively.

*Last month, we integrated Windy.com's weather map as a map layer in Beta. Test this map in the application under the "Maps" category in Privileges and Features. Windy's map provides interactive weather forecasting on a global scale. Use this map layer to get the latest local weather and use it to better inform your fleet movements.

System integrators appreciate customizing the way they view data within GpsGate. You can now save your application's Workspace to display accumulator start values in the Daily Summary panel. Additionally, an update to GpsGate's Fleet smartphone app gives you the ability to view Vehicle Status. You can now hide, show, and reorder fields for better visibility. You'll see further changes below:

  • Add support to batch edit Status Indicator and Position Marker in the application. Learn more about this feature here.
  • Add instructional text updates in Email, Error, and Profiling Logs when the table is blank.
  • Add an info message that appears in Application and Template List when the table doesn't have any information to display.
  • Display Odometer Distance Factor value with selected number format (culture) settings in User Form.
  • Support for Okta and Azure AD with SAML SSO.
  • REST API methods now include an original user application identifiers.

Device Plugins
GpsGate's device integration team works closely with lead manufacturers to bring the latest GPS capabilities to your platform. Improvements, new signals, and fixes ensure that your devices are always giving you accurate fleet data. New this month:

  • Add support for Teltonika's ADAS Camera for FMB640, FMC640, FMB125, FMC125, FMB225, and FMC225 tracking devices.
  • Further device improvements from our GPS device manufacturers include AOVX, Atrack, Teltonika, Queclink, Meitrack, and WirelessLinks.
