The Live Trac GPS web user interface system is so easy to use on our fleet management solutions! If you ever have a question, you can always click for live support. However, now every section of the Control Panel includes comprehensive instructional videos on how each function works. Simply look for the blue diamond with the question mark inside to load the "How To" video for that fleet management function.
When you first log into the Live Trac GPS user interface on your fleet management system, the map will immediately display your area; you'll also notice a Control Panel. This Control Panel puts you in the driver’s seat to navigate through the Map, Devices, Reports, Alert System, Search, Dispatch & Directions, Address, Live Support, and Historical Playback features of the GPS tracking system. The Control Panel is your key tool to all the features and functions of the web-based GPS user tracking system. Note that the Control Panel can be moved on your computer screen by placing your mouse on the border and dragging the Control Panel box.
Let's take a look at the available features of the Live Trac GPS web-based system.
Map Overview - By hovering your mouse over your vehicles, you'll be able to see specific vehicle information such as latitude, longitude, and speed of the vehicle -- all of which are updated every 10 seconds. Integrated with Microsoft Virtual Earth, you'll be able to select - Hybrid, Satellite, Map and Bird's Eye Views - all with the click of a mouse button.
Map Control - The Map Control tab lets you view your map with a Bird's Eye, Hybrid or Satellite view. You can also zoom in, pan, or set map rendering features within the Map Control tab on your GPS fleet management system.
Devices - The Devices tab enables you to customize your map view by viewing all of your fleet vehicles or just one. This section is where you can view vehicles by group, which you create through the Group Editor and Driver Editor.
Report - The Report tab lets you obtain reports either online (onscreen) or emailed to you in Excel. Reports available onscreen include: Standard Report, Enhanced Report, Start/Stop Report, Aggressive Driving Report, Excessive Idling, Vehicle Mileage, PTO Sensor Report, Speeding Report, Vapor Trail, and Zone Activity. E-mailed Excel format reports available include: Master Report, Vehicle Ops Report, Standard Report, Aggressive Driving, Excessive Idling, Vehicle Mileage, PTO Sensor Report, Mileage by State, Speed Alert Report, Start/Stop Report, and Speeding Report.
Alert System - Through the onscreen Alert Editor, you can create an unlimited number of Event Alerts such as boundary zone entry/exit, speed alerts, and ignition on/off. Once you have set your alerts, you will receive SMS notifications or email any time an event takes place.
Search - The Search tab is a convenient tool to help you find locations for certain places. For example, if you need to find the closest gas station, simply type in "fuel" or "gas" in the "Find" box, and a list of gas stations, complete with address and phone number, will populate on the fleet management system.
Dispatch & Directions - The Dispatch & Directions feature enables you to plan a route. You can enter a single start and stop address or plot up to 20 stops on the same route. Routes can be customized by either "fastest time" or "shortest distance".
Address - Through the Address Editor, you can place markers you define and create directly on the map. These markers can be helpful for placing warehouse, offices or other frequently used locations in your daily use of the Live Trac GPS tracking system.
Live Support - Live chat support is embedded within the web user interface through the Live Support tab. Here, you can get help or have a question answered live without picking up the phone. Online support is currently available for 7am to 7pm Monday through Friday and 9am to 4pm Saturday. All times are Central Time.
Historical Playback - Need to know a specific path taken by a vehicle? The Historical Playback tab lets you do just that. Simply select the vehicle you want to view through the Devices tab, select the date under the Historical Playback tab and hit the forward button. The Historical Playback feature is available for the previous 90 days on your fleet management system device.
