Where is my Truck?

With the latest update of the TrakIT Android app, we have added location tracking to the app. This means that you can enable location tracking for any TrakIT user who is using the TrakIT Mobile app.

So how does this help you know where your truck is? This can be done in 4 simple steps:

1) Specify the Tracking Start and End events in the corridor setup.
2) Create a user profile for your truck drivers and enable location tracking on their profile
3) Have each driver download the TrakIT Mobile app on his Android phone and login once only.
4) Link the relevant work orders to the drivers.

The first 3 steps are to be completed once only. However, each work order needs to be linked to the correct driver so that the location for the work order can be tracked.

Once linked to a driver, location tracking for a work order will happen only between the events that are specified in the corridor setup (e.g. From Gate-Out Port to Delivered to Customer). The latest location reported by the driver between these two events will be displayed on a map as shown below:



Please note that only the latest location based on the location time between the events is reported.

For any questions or guidance on how to setup Location Tracking, please contact TrakIT Support. Kindly note that as this is a new feature, we are still testing this on a variety of Android phones and checking compatibility as well. It may be possible that it may not work on some Android phone models.
