Description

Active GPS Report/Location Information*







*Location Information is included in multiple report types. This data is noted by underlined text.

The Active GPS Report offers the following details with each report. The interval at which the NightOwl sends the location report is set by the user from the Device Dashboard. For more information see the "Sending Commands" article. When the NightOwl senses the ignition is turned off, the device will stop reporting locations. However, the user may still be able to request a single locate from the Device Dashboard:


GPS Position/Location: Displays the address and/or the GPS coordinates (latitude and longitude) of the device at the time of this report.

Speed:The current speed at the time of the location (mph/kph).

HeadingThe current heading from (0-360 degrees).

SatellitesThis shows the number of satellites currently in view when the NightOwl located (0-24). Typically, anything over 3 satellites should produce a locate. The more satellites in view the higher the accuracy of the location reported.

GPS UTC TimeThe date and time when this location was acquired (in UTC time)

Signal StrengthSignal Strength shows the strength of the cellular coverage at the time of the location (0-100%)

Vehicle ID Report

Idle Time Report

The Idle Time report is sent when a vehicle is running and not moving for more than 60 seconds. 


Location Information: All location information described above.

Odometer (when available): The Odometer data is reported when the NightOwl is capable of collecting this information from the vehicle. Odometer is the total number of miles traveled on the vehicle.

Idle Time: This displays the number of minutes the vehicle was idling (running, but not moving).

Left/Right Turn
