Frequently Asked Questions
How often are GPS coordinates collected?
The GPS update latency can vary based on the rate of change in vehicle speed and direction. Updates are typically received as fast as 2 seconds when the rate of change of speed or direction is high. The slowest update frequency will be 30 seconds, assuming the vehicle is in a location with slower network connectivity. For trailer or equipment tracking, GPS coordinates are collected every 1 min when the trailer is in motion.
What is the difference between a vehicle’s location history, a driver’s location history and asset’s location history?
Vehicle locations are recorded by the Motive Vehicle Gateway, which is equipped with a GPS chip inside the device. When the vehicle is in motion, GPS coordinates can be collected as fast as every 2 seconds.
Drivers who connect to a Vehicle Gateway will have their locations match that of the vehicle. Drivers who use the Motive Driver App without a Vehicle Gateway will have locations updated from their mobile phones.
Asset locations are recorded by the Motive Asset Gateway, which is equipped with a GPS chip inside the device. When the trailer or equipment is in motion, GPS coordinates can be collected as fast as every 60 seconds.
Do I need a Motive Vehicle Gateway to use the Asset Gateway?
No. The Asset Gateway is a fully independent product that can be used with or without the Motive Vehicle Gateway. While all of our products are designed to work alongside each other through the Motive platform, the Asset Gateway and dashboard can be used by customers whether or not they require Vehicle Gateways or operate tractors.
Can I keep track of my vehicles even when a driver isn’t connected to the Vehicle Gateway on their mobile device or tablet?
Yes. The cellular-enabled Motive Vehicle Gateway constantly collects and sends GPS and vehicle data to the Motive Fleet Dashboard even if your driver is not connected to the Driver App.
How far back can I view location history?
All location history data for drivers and vehicles is stored on Motive servers and is backed up across Motive’s data centers. Fleet managers can access location history data for the duration that the driver was using the Motive App and for the duration that the Motive Vehicle Gateway was installed in the vehicle.
