Register a New Vehicle
The device must be installed in the vehicle before you can see the vehicle in the portal.
To add a vehicle:
- From the menu, click Vehicles.
- Click Add Vehicle.
- Enter the following information in the Vehicle Editor:
|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.|
|Color||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.|
|License Plate||The license plate number of the vehicle.|
|License State||The state in which the vehicle is licensed.|
|Country||The country where the vehicle operates.|
|Fuel Type||The type of fuel the vehicle consumes (used to calculate GHG emissions on reports).|
|Fuel Capacity||The fuel capacity in gallons (used to calculate the Idle GPH).|
|Engine Size (L)||The size of the engine (used to calculate the Idle GPH).|
|Idle GPH||The number of gallons per hour the vehicle consumes when idling. Automatically calculates based on fuel capacity and engine size.|
