Geotab now supports Garmin Hours-of-Service (HOS) Passenger Carrying rule sets, including:
- USA Property/Passenger 60-hour/7-Day
- USA Property/Passenger 70-hour/8-Day
Garmin Stop Status Data Added to LocationContent
Stop status data from Garmin devices is now included in the LocationContent object in the Geotab Software Development Kit (SDK). This property is labeled as onRouteRanges. This is useful for determining when a driver has accepted a stop on the Garmin by tapping on GO.
Workflow for onRouteRanges property:
Geotab continues to update and enhance our support in multiple languages. This month, we made updates to the German, Japanese, and Vietnamese language versions.
Vietnamese Calendar Revisions
Geotab has updated the month and day names on the Vietnamese calendar to more accurately reflect the proper terms. The calendar now shows the full month name, e.g. Tháng một, and the days are indicated by T2, T3 and onward, with Sunday as “CN” — meaning Chủ nhật or Lord’s Day.
Translation of Notification Template Tokens
Notification template tokens have been translated for all languages in addition to the descriptions, for an enhanced user experience. You can find the Notification Templates page by going to Rules & Groups > Rules and then clicking the Notification templates button. Customized notifications are useful for different tasks, such as sending a web link to a map, including an emergency contact number, or helping conserve data usage for mobile devices.
Minor UI Improvements
- The line spacing in Zone comments on the map has been harmonized with spacing in the zone edit.
- A Search feature has been added to the Security Clearances page.
- Engine Faults and Fault Details have been joined into one page.
- Improved layout of work times page.
- The Trips Detail (default and advanced) Excel Reports are now sorted by the device name instead of device ID so they are easier to read.
