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).
The Map has the following features:
|1||Map||Click on a vehicle or landmark on the Map to open the associated information card (appears on the right-hand side of the screen).
If any vehicles are unavailable due to unreliable data, an Unavailable button is displayed on the Map (to the left of the Map Panel). See Unavailable List below for additional information.
|1a||Map Panel||Use the Expand/Collapse button (on the right side of the Search Field) to expand or collapse the Map Controls Panel. The Map Control Panel includes the Search Field, Map Controls/View, and Vehicle/Landmarks List.|
|2||Search Field||Type a search term in the box (vehicle ID, driver name, landmark, address/Point of Interest) to center the map over your query.|
|3||Map Controls/View||Perform basic map tasks such as dropping a pin, sending a dispatch, and more and set your map view preferences (e.g., show/hide Points of Interest, landmarks, traffic, etc.).|
|4||Vehicles/Landmarks List||View your vehicles, hierarchies, vehicles groups (as selected in the Data Source Selector), or Landmarks.|
Vehicles with an “Unavailable due to unreliable data” status are not displayed on the map and appear in a list of unavailable vehicles. To see the list of vehicles with unreliable location data, simply hover your mouse over the Unavailable button (located next to the Map Panel). This list provides hyperlinks for each unavailable vehicle for you to click on and see the vehicle’s corresponding Vehicle Card.
The Weather Overlay is a new map layer that allows you to view the current weather radar in your fleet’s area. When turned on, this will update every 5 minutes.
