Fleet FAQ


What do I do if I have internet connection on a fleet device but it is not showing up on screen?
First, check Layers-Assets and make sure Assets is checked. If it is checked and your device is still not showing, contact MAPS, it’s possible that we’ll need to reset the DNS server.  But, typically, ensuring that Assets is checked will suffice.

How do you setup access so a user at location X can only see trucks assigned to that location?
Under the User Profile, there are options for “Profile Level Access”…. If the “Business Unit” is selected, they can see everything.  If you change that to “Location”, then you can select specific company locations, and then only those assets associated with those locations are able to be viewed.
