March 2022

GpsGate's March release includes a final Tracks tweak that power users and fleet managers will love: toggle between track points using your arrow keys. We've also brought user search administration in-app. Administrators can search for users and filter out billable units directly from an application. With each release, our goal is to help fleet managers work smarter and faster.

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