This article describes the various features of the Tracking screen, which is the default screen that appears when you open the CalAmp application. You also can access this screen by clicking  on the sidebar menu. On the Tracking screen, you can locate and track your fleet's assets on a map and see various types of data about its current status. You also can map a history of events reported by your vehicles to CalAmp and launch further asset history details with a link to the Reports screen.

Note: For information about the banner at the top and sidebar menu on the left, see Navigating the CalAmp Application.

There are four main areas of the Tracking screen, each of which provides different means of accessing data about your assets, as follows: 

Note: The asset results of all of these depend on the group you have selected in the Group Chooser. For example, Search returns only entities that are in the chosen group or one of its subgroups. See Choosing a Group to View Globally for details on how to change your specified group.

  • Search bar and filters: Along the top of the screen are features that offer these options: 
    • Search: Enables you to search for an asset, driver, address, geofence, or tag (that is, equipment you have fitted with a tag). (See Performing a Search on the Tracking Screen.)
      Note: A CalAmp Tag is a smart proximity sensor you can attach to equipment and associate to a particular vehicle. This can help you make sure that all the right tools are on the right vehicle. If a tagged item is left behind at a worksite or otherwise lost, CalAmp can identify its last-known location and alert you so that you can find it quickly. (See Employing CalAmp Tags for more information.)
    • Groups: Enables you to select a different group's assets to track. (By default, your assigned group's vehicles are displayed.) Note that you'll be able to view only groups you have rights to access.
    • Asset Type: Enables you to limit the tracked assets to just the type you specify.
      Note: The filters from here on may or may not appear on your screen. There is a More Filters option that is responsive to the size of your browser window; it will be displayed if your window isn't wide enough to accommodate all the available filters (and will contain all of those that don't fit). Otherwise, all the filters below will be across the top of the screen by name.
      If you do have More Filters, you can access the options it houses by clicking its drop-down arrow and then the name of the filter.
    • Category: Enables you to limit the tracked assets to just the category you specify.
    • Geofences: Opens a list of your geofences, enabling you to display just the ones you select on the map.
    • Route: Enables you to limit the tracked assets to just specific routes.
    • Asset Status: Enables you to limit the returned assets to just certain status values (Idle, Moving, Parked, and Towed).
    • Save/Select Filter: If you have made selections in any of the filters (such as one asset type in one group), this enables you to save that filter. After you name and save it, you can quickly return to just those assets by selecting the filter. (See Saving an Asset or Geofence View as a Filter and Viewing Assets or Geofences Saved as a Filter.)
      Note: If you are familiar with legacy iOn, you may find this similar to its bookmark feature, except that it just saved an area of the map. Save Filter offers many more options for saving "favorites." You can save a map region as well, along with a basemap for it, as shown in Saving a Map View.
  • Asset list/grid: If you click to the right of , your assets will appear in whatever view you last had selected on the Tracking screen, as follows:
    • Asset list: Displays each asset's data on individual cards. Each asset card will provide some basic details, including where and when each asset's LMU last reported to CalAmp, the status of each asset (such as Parked or Idle), who is assigned as the asset's driver (if applicable), and the group it belongs to. You can click  at the top right of the pane for this view.
    • Simple list view: Displays just the asset names and icons in a list. You can click  for this view.
    • Asset grid: Shows detailed tracking information for your assets in columns and rows, including where and when each asset's LMU last reported to CalAmp, what event was triggered, who was driving the vehicle (if a driver is assigned), and the vehicle's speed. Click for this view. You can click and drag  to the right to give the grid more screen real estate.
  • See Tracking a Group or Asset for more details about the different views.
  • Map: The CalAmp application displays your assets' locations and your organization's geofences on Esri maps, which are built using ArcGIS, a geographic information system that enables users to incorporate various types of data on their maps and display them on any Internet-capable device. See Navigating the Tracking Screen's Map for more information about the map's options.
  • Asset Details pane: When you select an asset's name in the asset list or grid, its Asset Details pane will be displayed. Its Overview tab offers all kinds of information about the asset, on these panels:
    • Asset Details: Displays the most recent data CalAmp received about the selected asset, including its current activity status (such as Parked or Moving), where and when it last reported to CalAmp, its assigned group, and its associated tags, if any.
      Note: You can click a tag's name in the Tool list to focus in on its last-known location on the map and view its status pane. If a tag is disconnected, a  icon will appear next to its name in the list.
    • Diagnostics: Lists diagnostics data for the asset, such as whether the Check Engine light is on, its odometer value, its engine hours, its fuel level, its battery voltage, and any fault codes it has reported. Fault codes, or diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), are analytic codes sent across the vehicle diagnostic bus when a problem occurs in the engine.
    • Additional Info: Shows the asset's properties, including its name, description, and asset type (such as Vehicle); when its LMU was installed; its license plate number; its year, make, and model; its VIN; what kind of device it has (such as an LMU-3030); and the device's ESN.
  • The History tab maps the asset's history of activity for the last 24 hours. See Mapping Asset History for details.
    Note: Tracking a Group or Asset shows more specifics about the Asset Details pane.
