Product Features and Updates – 6/27/2016

This Product Features and Updates announcement for GPS Insight Pro/Enterprise includes updates for Dashboards, Maps, Reports, and Administration functions.

Dashboard Updates

User Preferences – Updated Option

The Label option in user preferences allows you to override the standard vehicle name with an attribute value (must be vehicle-specific and alphanumeric). The change applies globally (dashlets, reports, maps, and administrative pages) in the portal. The setting is specific to the logged in user.

If an attribute value is not assigned to a vehicle, the override does not affect that vehicle. The original vehicle label persists.

Map Updates

Map Dashboard – New History Option for Assets

History is available for assets in the map dashboard. Except for the ST-1100, asset history does not include a path (dots only).

Landmark Editor – Updated to Support Metric Units

The Landmark Editor includes a new option to support metric units for the radius. If you change the unit of measurement from feet or miles to meters, the estimated Area adjusts from square miles to square kilometers:

Report Updates

Report Bad Posted Speed – Updated Input

When you report an incorrect speed, the form includes an input field for email address. If you enter an email address, you will receive notification when the speed correction has been processed (typically 7-10 days).

Administrative Updates

Vehicle Management – New Icon

A new icon in the Vehicle List indicates whether a device has an ELD attached.

Vehicle Management – New Configuration Options for PNP

Some PNP devices include an optional buzzer feature. When enabled the device uses recommended thresholds that alert drivers for rapid acceleration, harsh braking, hard right and left turning events, and idling (5 minutes).

Users with Vehicle Admin permissions can reset the thresholds that were set at the time of shipment/installation using the PNP Threshold Configuration management page. You can apply your preferred defaults to all applicable devices, or you can configure device settings individually.

Because these are device-level hardware settings, changing device configuration requires the device to restart; therefore, adjust these settings infrequently and during off hours as much as possible.


The default options on the right do NOT show what your devices were or are currently programmed with. This area allows you to set NEW default preferences for your account. You can set the thresholds for more than one device at a time using your preferred defaults, but there there is no batch process for uploading the settings to each device. See the documentation for detailed steps on the configuration process.

Metrics Management – Updated User Interface

The Scorecard Configuration tool now displays an updated UI that is more consistent with other administrative pages:
