Activating Ignition On/Off Alerts

Receive notifications when ignition on/off events occur by activating Ignition On/Off Alerts. Alerts are sent from the Manager App to any and all device(s) for which you are currently signed into the App. All alerts activated in the App are reflected in the Portal and can be managed like any alerts set up in the Portal.

The Manager App follows alert permissions configured in the Portal (i.e., only users who have permission to create alerts will be able to enable the alert from the App).

To activate the Ignition On/Off Alert:

  1. Tap Alert when this vehicle stops or Alert when this vehicle starts once to activate the alert for one-time notification.
  2. The Alert icon appears in green and the text in green confirms that the alert will be sent once.

  3. Tap Alert when this vehicle stops or Alert when this vehicle starts again to activate the alert to send a notification every time the event occurs.
  4. The Alert icon appears in blue and the text in blue confirms the alert will be sent every time the event occurs.

To disable the Ignition Off Alert:

  1. Tap Alert when this vehicle stops or Alert when this vehicle starts.
  2. The icon and text revert to black and the Alert is disabled.

    If you selected to receive the notification once, you are required to tap again to change the notification to send every time, then tap once more to disable the alert.

Creating a Landmark

The Manager App allows you to create a landmark from the vehicle card. The landmark you create will be added to the landmark group that you have permission to manage and is reflected in the Portal.

If you are creating a landmark from the vehicle card, the landmark location will match the location of the vehicle at the time you create the landmark. If you would like to create a landmark for a location that is separate from a vehicle, use the Create a Landmark feature under Dropped Pin Card (see above). The landmark shape and size defaults to a 750 ft. circle.

To create a landmark:

  1. From the vehicle card, tap Create Landmark.
  2. A pop-up window appears prompting you to enter a name for the landmark you are creating.

  3. Enter the name you would like to assign to the landmark and tap Create.
  4. The landmark is created and displayed on the Map.

You can view the Landmark card (see Landmark Card for more information below) by tapping on the landmark.

Assigning/Changing a Driver

The iOS Manager app allows you to assign or re-assign a driver to a vehicle. If a driver is assigned to a vehicle, you can then search for the driver in the app. You may also change a driver assigned to a vehicle. Drivers must be previously added to the Portal to appear in the list of available drivers on the app.

This feature is available to Pro and Enterprise customers only.

Starring Vehicles

The map automatically centers around the starred vehicle(s) if it is not already in view. The map continues to dynamically center as the starred vehicle(s) update their location. To turn off following, tap the Follow Starred menu option again.

 

Getting Directions

You can get directions to/from a vehicle’s location using your mobile device’s native mapping app. The mapping app allows you to choose a destination based on your mobile device’s location, a place, or an address. The GPS Insight Manager app does not include options to dispatch or share the directions to another vehicle or driver.

To get directions to a vehicle’s location:

  1. From the vehicle card, tap the last reported address.

The native mapping app on your iOS device opens with directions to the selected vehicle.

  2. Tap Route.
  3. Tap Go.

Vehicle Safety Scorecard

Safety Scorecards are only available for vehicles equipped with devices that report driving violations.

The Safety Scorecard is a color-coded record based on vehicle violations for the last seven available days of active driving history (not counting the day of). The color-coding schema is as follows:

Green: 70+
Yellow: 60-69
Red: 59 and below

The formula used for the score is proprietary and cannot be shared.

Details

Tap on the Safety Scorecard to view the following granular details:

  • Vehicle ID
  • Available time ranges (7 Days, 30 Days, All – 5 Month span)
  • Low score
  • High score
  • Miles driven
  • Time driven
  • Scorecard score
  • Data graph
  • Violations count for the time range selected.
  • Certified vehicle score.

A scorecard score is Certified if the miles driven for the selected time range includes 50 miles driven or greater. The Certified designation of a score indicates that the score is reliable.

Data Graph

The data graph provides a visual representation of scorecard scores over the time range selected. This graph allows you to tap on a point in the graph to see data associated with the point selected. A crosshair appears and the data corresponding to the selected point is provided.

Within the Data Graph, you also have the ability to view specific trips per day. Once you click on a point in the graph to see data associated with the point selected, click on “View Day” for a detailed summary of the trips taken that day.

If there are gaps of data, the gaps are omitted from the graph.

Violations

Violations count values are available for Acceleration, Braking, Left Cornering, Right Cornering, and Speeding. The values are a count of recorded violations over the time range selected. The values are color-coded in green, yellow, and red to indicate the number of violations per 100 miles. This means that Green indicates the number of violation events are not significant; whereas, red indicates a significant number of violation events.

 

Viewing Vehicle History

Details including Trip Start, Duration, Average Speed, Distance and a map view from the vehicle’s most recent trip within the past three days is displayed under Recent Vehicle History.

If there is no data within the past three days to display, the details under Recent Vehicle History will appear as null (see below).

The map view includes trip start () and stop () indicators.

To view history detail on the map:

History detail provides insight into a vehicle’s individual tip activity (ignition on to ignition off), idle events during each trip, and stop duration between trips. A full summary of trips per day is provided, including the total number of trips, miles, and minutes.

For trips occurring past midnight, the associated trip card is included on both days. For example, if a trip begins at 10:50 pm on Monday and ends at 3:05 am on Tuesday, the trip card reflecting this trip is included under Monday’s and Tuesday’s trips.

If the location is known, the address renders in the Trip Card. If unknown, then lat/long coordinates are provided.

  1. From the vehicle card, tap Trip History.

Trip cards display a map snapshot of vehicle activity per trip, represented in a single trail, total miles and minutes, and times/locations corresponding to the start (ignition on), idle, and stop (ignition off) events of each trip, if any.

 

To view history trails on the map (one vehicle):

  1. From the vehicle card, tap Trail.

If the vehicle logged movement within the last 24 hours, the vehicle’s cumulative activity is represented by a green trail.

To turn off the history trail for a vehicle, tap Trail from the vehicle card again.

 

To view history trails on the map (multiple vehicles):

  1. Tap the Menu icon (img_584637179dbc7).
  2. Tap Trail All Vehicles.

If the selected vehicles on the map have logged movement within the last hour, each vehicle’s cumulative activity is represented by a colored trail. If you have selected to trail a vehicle from the vehicle card, the activity will be represented by a light green trail.

If you have a large number of vehicles on the map, you may want to filter the map by a particular vehicle group (or individually starred) before turning on all history trails. If you do not see any history trails on the map, the selected vehicles have not updated their locations in the last hour.

To turn off all vehicle trails, tap the Menu icon, and tap Trail All Vehicles again.
