This article covers the various features of the CalAmp application, located at

The default startup screen is Tracking, and it displays the assets of the group you have selected in the Group Chooser on the map. (See Navigating the Tracking Screen for details about it.)

Note: CalAmp uses the term asset for the equipment you are tracking; generally speaking, this will mean vehicle, but it also could be farm equipment, cargo containers — anything of value to you that could be in motion and therefore trackable.

The Site Banner

At the top of the site, you will see the banner, which contains the following:

  • : This is simply the application name.
  • : Click this to open a drop-down widget that lists notifications for alerts. The count of unread notifications appears to the top left of the bell. If there is no number, all your notifications have been marked as read.
  • : This displays the name of the group whose assets you are currently viewing. Click either the icon or group name to open the Group Chooser, which you can use to change the group each screen you access will view first. (See Choosing a Group to View Globally for details.)
  • : Click this to open the Resource Center, which offers options to share feedback about the CalAmp application with our developers and to check out helpful documentation, such as this KB. It also includes announcements of new release features.
  • : This displays the username you use to log in to the CalAmp application. Click the text of your username (or the profile icon with your initials) to open a pop-up with options to update your user profile settings, access this KB, contact Customer Support, view CalAmp's privacy policy, or log out. (See Viewing Your Profile and Setting Your Preferences for details on changing your preferences.)

The Sidebar Menu

Along the left side of the screen is the site's main sidebar menu.

These are the options you'll see (depending on what modules your organization has):

  • Dashboard: The following Dashboards provide key information about your fleet's overall performance in an at-a-glance view:
    • Fleet: Offers several widgets, including My Fleet, which displays asset data such as counts and types and a pie chart of active/inactive assets; Fleet Utilization, which provides charts and graphs that help you visualize how your assets are being used across your fleet; Fleet Safety, which reports harsh events and safety violations; and Driver Scorecard, which shows a driver leaderboard and day-to-day driver scoring trends.
    • Devices: Presents data on your devices' capability to report to the CalAmp application and whether any assets have no paired LMUs (plus any units that have no associated assets).
    • Safety: Shows how your overall fleet safety score has evolved over the past month, percentages of harsh event and speeding safety violations, and which drivers have triggered the most harsh and speeding events.
    • Utilization: Demonstrates how your assets are being used across your fleet from week to week, including idling and work time, plus the percentages of usage of each asset (in other words, if the asset is being used all the days in the chosen time range for the expected number of work hours).
    • CrashBoxx: Provides crash data in charts and graphs that help you visualize how your fleet has been affected by accidents, including the percentage of crashes for your total fleet, the number of crashes by severity level, the total crashes, and the percentage by crash type. (Note that this requires the purchase of an add-on module.)
  •  Tracking: The Tracking screen enables you to locate and track your fleet assets and to map a history of their reported GPS events.
  •  Events: The Events menu houses Geofence Events, which lists your geofence events (when your assets entered and exited your geofences, geocoded areas of interest), and Notification Events, which shows the alerts that have been triggered by your assets and devices and sent to CalAmp. Both screens enable you to acknowledge their events.
  •  Reports: CalAmp's reports can provide you with all kinds of information about your fleet, including the total miles your vehicles have driven, asset history, idling details, engine hours, stop data, when assets have entered and exited your geofences, fault codes, fuel efficiency, and operator performance.
  •  CrashBoxx: CrashBoxx is an add-on service that can notify you in real time if your vehicles have been involved in an accident; you can view crash-reconstruction data by case ID on the CrashBoxx screen.
  • MaintenanceThe Maintenance module lists the assets that are due for service and displays upcoming services scheduled for a selected asset (and when services were performed on it in the past). You add the required services and schedules for your assets in Admin - Maintenance.
  •  Admin: The Admin menu contains many utilities your system administrator will use, including options for managing your fleet’s assets, devices, drivers, users, roles, groups, routes, geofences, notifications, maintenance schedules, driver/asset schedules, IO profiles, and driver scoring infraction weights.
  •  Collapse: The Collapse option enables you to collapse the sidebar menu to just an icon view (hiding the menu names) so that you can have more window real estate for the screen items.
