Maintenance (GpsGate Cloud Premium Feature)

Resource costs change. Two service stations may sell tires or oil at different prices, so we made it possible to change costs during and after service tasks to account for this. What’s more? GpsGate Cloud users can now add historical services within the Maintenance feature to keep a better record of vehicle upkeep. Here are some more highlights:

  • Add an option to add an old service via the vehicle right-click menu in the Maintenance feature
  • Add an option to change the total cost for resources in tasks
  • Introduce Next Service instead of First Service
  • Simplify the Maintenance panel and setup for service schedules
  • Enhance the usability of the feature
