Once you have logged in with your credentials, the new Portal is displayed by default.
We have a fresh, new Portal Home Page and Map for you with a new UI aimed to improve your fleet tracking experience.

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.

How to use the User Preferences page:
The link to open the User Preferences page and the User Preferences page itself are only available to users with User Admin permission.
The User Preferences page allows you to set your Dashboard preferences for measurement unit (US (Standard) or Metric), time zone, default account landing page (Homepage, Map (New!), Map (Classic) or Classic Dashboard), and side-bar theme (dark or light). Additionally, you can logout from this page.
Any preferences set in the User Preferences page will override preferences set in the Classic User Preferences tab.
