The device must be installed in the vehicle before you can see the vehicle in the portal.

To add a vehicle:

  1. From the menu, click Vehicles.
  2. Click Add Vehicle.
  3. Enter the following information in the Vehicle Editor:
Field Name Description
Serial Number* The unique serial number of each GPS device that is associated with a specific vehicle. The device serial number(s) are pre-populated into your account at the time of installation. Each device can be registered to only one vehicle.
Odometer* The mileage on the vehicle at the time of installation.
Vehicle Label* The user-friendly identifier for the vehicle used in maps, reports, and so on. You can decide how to label each vehicle in your fleet.
VIN* The Vehicle Identification Number. Enter the VIN that is associated with the specific serial number of the installed device. Refer to your vehicle/device registration card (if available) to ensure you associate the right vehicle with the right device.
Icon* The default icon appears as a pin with a circle. Instead of using a circle, you can assign different shapes to different vehicles to get an immediate visual indicator for the vehicle type. For example, all trucks can be denoted with a truck-shaped icon, whereas vans can be denoted with a van-shaped icon. (Color is dynamically set based on vehicle status.)
Year* The year of the vehicle model.
Make* The make of the vehicle (e.g., Ford). Automatically populated when VIN is entered.
Model* The model of the vehicle (e.g., F150). Automatically populated when VIN is entered.
