How can I export my markers on a report?

Our GPS Tracking Software allows you to export the markers you already added on our software (click here to check how to add markers), so you get even better information regarding the reports you will create through our app!

This new feature is available under certain reports (like the “Drives and stops” for example), where you can choose to show the markers on the generated report, so you can understand easier where your vehicles stopped!

In order to export markers, all you have to do is to tick the checkbox “Show Markers”.

 

Once you generate the report the nearest markers will appear next to the address of the location, just like it is showon the image below:

How can i create a route alert?

Our GPS Tracking software provides you the possibility  to create a “Route alert” notification. This tools will notify you if your vehicles enter or leave a route you have design on the map! A great tool for companies who want to get notified instant if their employees deviate their route!

Once you add the settings you wish, you now have to design the route on the map. Simply click with your mouse on the road in order to start designing the route.NOTE: Due to GPS drifiting we suggest to use a deviation of at least 0.5 km.
