Main Dashboard

Use the image below to identify the main components of cards on the main dashboard.

  1. Name of the card
  2. Current status / most relevant information
  3. Geofence where it occurred
  4. Address
  5. Main content (events for live, or photos)
  6. Secondary action button
  7. Primary action buttons


The notifications card displays the last unattended alert, prioritizing critical alerts over warnings and informational alerts. Therefore, you'll always see the most critical alert first until it's attended to. To address the alert, simply click on the VIEW button.

Current Status

This section displays the most recent status of the entity, including its current trip status and the timestamp of its last connection.

It is important to differentiate between the last communication and the last event. Events occur when significant conditions arise on the device, such as button presses, speed violations, or ignition activations. Meanwhile, the device continually attempts to maintain its connection to the system in the background. Therefore, during periods without events, the device transmits a message to the system to sustain the connection. Consequently, it is normal to observe a more recent last communication timestamp compared to the last event.

By clicking on the name of the generated event, you can access a list of the most recent events.

  • Primary Actions: The primary actions involve updating the vehicle's location and setting a safe zone (further details below).
  • Secondary Actions: Secondary actions include options to share the vehicle's location or utilize it for navigation purposes.

Safe Zone

The safe zone feature creates a virtual perimeter around your entity and notifies you via email if this perimeter is breached. Additionally, it can automatically take actions such as activating the Safe Vehicle Immobilization feature when a breach occurs.

On the map, you'll notice a vehicle has violated its safe zone when its icon turns red and pulsates.


Trip Information: Displays the last trip status, including the time and date of departure. Note that if the entity is stationary, this card may not be present. Additionally, it can also display the current status of a route if it’s programmed.

  1. Routes: The routes view displays the active route of the vehicle.
    Please note that routes appear two hours before the scheduled start time and up to four hours after arrival time at the destination unless another route is scheduled before this. In such cases, it shows the next route.
    Routes can include multiple checkpoints, and during tracking, you can monitor route completion by checking the scheduled time of arrival and whether they are on time or have missed their next checkpoint.
  2. Trips: The history view in tracking quickly displays the last three days' worth of trips.
    Clicking on "History" provides an overview of the entity's recent trips. Selecting a trip reveals its path on the map, and clicking the right icon offers more details about that specific trip. Use the back arrow to return to the list of trips.
    Similar to the vehicle list, you can adjust the information displayed in the list of trips by clicking the switch icon at the bottom. This information may include the maximum speed for the trip, time spent over the speed limit, idle time, or fuel consumption.

Additionally, from the list of trips, you can choose to view only the stops made or both the trips and stops using the icons along the bottom.

Driver Info & Assignment

The driver card shows the currently assigned driver, this driver can be manually assigned or automatically via any of the following ways: iButton, RFID, Taurus, or Bluetooth Tag.

You can change the assignment of a driver manually at any time by clicking on the ASSIGN button. You can also click on the REMOVE button anytime to remove that driver.

Current Cycle

The current cycle card shows information related to the current segment of the vehicle. For example, it shows when the entity begins to work or when begins to rest, the amount of hours that the entity has been working or resting, if the entity is overworked, etc. For more explanation visit the Hours of Service Section.


There’s a card for viewing the last photo captured with the Taurus app or the Photocam accessory, you can also browse a list of previous photos taken. If you use the camera accessory you will find a CAPTURE button.

Note that once a photo is captured it takes some time, a couple of seconds up to a minute depending on the network connections.


Depending on which device and accessory you have installed, you’ll see a list of features or outputs that are enabled in this section. These outputs can be turned ON/OFF remotely with this section.

Activating the Outputs

One of the important outputs From the dashboard we can activate or deactivate the Safe Engine Immobilization by clicking on the button on the right of the icon. (Please note that Safe Engine Immobilization is a feature that has to be previously installed by a professional inside your vehicle).


The sensors section shows an overview of the state of the last connected sensors to the device. The sensors can include any input sensor, like to know if a door is closed, or if something’s activated.

Temperature data is available as long as you have the necessary accessory. Here you’ll be shown the last temperature reported.

ADC is a voltage value that comes from a cable called an ADC cable on the device. It converts any analog value that’s sensing between 0-10V and reports it here.

The connected state refers to the external power connection for the device, and the battery refers to the devices internal battery.
