About the Map – New

The Map transforms your workspace to a single 2D map with quick access to management of vehicles and landmarks. The 2D Live map shows live updates of all vehicles. Live updating means that individual vehicle locations/statuses refresh as they occur. Other 2D map options show collective updates when the entire map refreshes (usually every 10-15 seconds).
