Build 7857

October 2023

This month, we made the world’s leading map interface easier than ever to configure. Headlining our October Release is the roll-out of Google Maps in the GpsGate Store. Enabling this popular map option means that you’ll access satellite imagery, street maps, real-time traffic conditions, and the Google Geocoder. Providing your customers with a constantly updated map, real-time traffic conditions, and unlimited geocoding, is now easier than ever.

Cloud and On-Site users can now enable Google Maps right in the platform.

It’s been a busy month for our device integration team, as our platform has welcomed new compatible devices and inputs from Teltonika, Queclink, GosuncnWelink, and Joint.

Our new Dashboard feature has undergone enhancements, specifically with error handling, and UI improvements. Give GpsGate Cloud a go, and test out Dashboard free until 1st of December 2023. Learn how to set up a GpsGate Cloud account here.

GpsGate users stay on top of their game with an updated platform. Do you use the Fleet App? Visit the Google Play and App stores to update. See our October Beta release notes here for all the details!


Google Maps in-Store

Benefit from the latest version of Google Maps, unlimited geocoding, real-time traffic conditions, satellite imagery, and street maps. This robust set of map functionalities optimizes fleet management. Configure Google Maps across applications in the GpsGate Store. Here are a couple of things to know:

  • If a Google Maps key exists, and nothing is done, no changes will occur in the platform
  • If a Google Maps key already exists, and Google Maps in-Store is enabled, the in-Store version will override the existing version
  • When Google Maps keys get disabled, the feature can be re-enabled from the Store
