Additional Unit Information
  • units
  • monitoring_options
  • monitoring

You can find additional information in the unit tooltip and in the extended unit information in the work list on the Monitoring tab.

Additional information includes the following data: the time of receiving the last message, location, presence in geofences, distance to the nearest geofence, speed, altitude, counters, satellites, connectivity settings, unit icon, sensor values, parameters, assigned drivers and trailers, custom fields, and maintenance intervals.

All the data items are activated in the Show additional information about the unit section of the user settings, except for the distance to the nearest geofence. This item is adjusted by the Distance from unit to geofence option from the Basic section.

Unit tooltip

A unit tooltip is shown when you point to a unit. The contents of the tooltip are selected in the user settings

An example of the unit tooltip is displayed in the picture above. In such tooltips, the following icons are shown to denote tooltips:





Engine hours


Number of satellites

Unit tooltips in other interface places (work list, dialog boxes, etc.) look differently, but contain the same features and information as the tooltips on the map. Here’s an example of such a tooltip:

The only difference is the display of coordinates. In the tooltips in work lists, dialog boxes and other interface places, the coordinates are displayed in a separate cell next to other indicators. For this purpose, the Coordinates option must be activated in the user settings. The tooltips on the map don’t show coordinates, but they have the Copy coordinates feature (the icon   in the address line) adjusted by the Location option in the user settings. Coordinates are copied with degrees as a decimal fraction, and a comma is used as the latitude and longitude separator.

The profile properties are displayed in the tooltip in the same order as they appear on the Profile tab of the unit properties.

You can copy data from the tooltip by selecting and saving the required fragment to the clipboard.

Extended unit information

Apart from the tooltip, you can obtain additional information about the unit by clicking on the unit icon in the work list on the Monitoring tab (both in the unit and unit group modes). The content of the extended unit information is also adjusted in the user settings.

You can open the extended information for any number of units in the work list. To hide the extended information, click on the unit icon again.

Depending on the unit settings, the values indicated in the tooltip as well as in the expanded information can be in the metric (kilometers, meters, kilometers per hour, liters), American (miles, feet, miles per hour, gallons), or imperial (miles, feet, miles per hour, gallons) measurement systems.

Opening the map of a third-party source

When you click on the icon  in the extended information or in the tooltip, it is possible to go to the site of a third-party map source.

To use this feature, select one of the following maps in the user settings:

  • Google, 
  • Yandex,
  •  Bing, 
  • OSM. 

If several maps are selected, a click on the coordinates opens the one that is higher on the list.

In the extended information and unit tooltips (except for the tooltips on the map), the icon becomes available after the activation of the Coordinates option and is displayed when you point to the unit coordinates.

In the unit tooltips on the map, this icon becomes available after the activation of the Location option and is shown in the address line.

Monitoring options menu

To open the menu of monitoring options, click on the required unit on the map. This menu contains the same functions that are selected for the work list of the Monitoring tab. In addition, regardless of the selected options, the menu always contains the icons for generating a quick report and building a quick track.

The menu of monitoring options doesn't contain information about the unit location, the tracking option, and the icon for removing the unit from the work list even if they are selected as monitoring options.

When a unit moves on the map, the menu moves with the unit. To close it, click anywhere outside the menu.
