June 2021

The new native map is now live! After being available for many months alongside the legacy native map, it's now the official GpsGate map experience with this release. It also allows you to use ArcGIS map layers - if you're an ArcGIS map user, this allows you to view all of the data you need on the map at once and toggle layers on/off.

We also made a ton of additions to the new Tracks 2.0 available in beta. More details are below or you can read the June release overview blog.

Tracks 2.0 (beta)

Lots of feature additions! You can check all of the great features here or see what's new for this month:

  • Historical vehicle markers on the map: you can move historical vehicle markers by clicking and then dragging the playhead in the timeline. You can also click on a track point in the track points list.
  • Export tracks from the panel.
  • Check the brush chart (scroll bar) in the footer of the timeline to see if you've zoomed in on the timeline. You can also use it to drag and rescale the timeline.
  • Select which tracks are visible on the map.
