What do you want to see in next version of GpsGate

What do you want to see in next version of GpsGate?

We are very interested to listen to what you think we should include in the next release of GpsGate Server!

All kind of feedback is of interested.

If you can include some information about the purpose of a suggested feature, and which kind of users you think would use it, it is even more interesting...

Please post your feedback, suggestions and comments as a reply to this topic.

Regards,
Johan

1. SMS send/receive limit per application so we can sell it per application.
2. Access to reports per application (like with scripts) so we can sell it per application.
3. Cell_ID support for supporting units (like Holux 007 and 005) so we can truck every phone with appropriate software without the need to turn on GPS (energy consuming). Also we can cover needs of some end users that expect position reports inside buildings. Especially important for products like Holux Tracker 005.

We would like to have following features:
- Differente icon for each tracker
- A panel with switches (lights), which show the status of any input signal,(like motor on, door open etc. and with bottom to switch any output on and off (like switch of motor etc.).
- The management of what can do any user should be more flexible. That means i should have the possibility, to allow or denied any function in the VT for each user. For ex. one user can delete track, can make Geofence but can not send commands etc. Today, or a user is an administrator and can do anything or he is not, and can do nothing.

Thank you!

- Differente icon for each tracker

As I am sure you are aware of, you can set the color of each tracker. But yes, setting a custom icon would be an improvement.

- A panel with switches (lights), which show the status of any input signal,(like motor on, door open etc. and with bottom to switch any output on and off (like switch of motor etc.).

Have you seen the "Icon Notifier" in v2.3 it is a part of an "Event Rule", there you can add columns of green/red icons in the vehicle list. You can typically get an icon which displays the state of an input of the tracker. And by using "Template Commands" you can set outputs as you like on your tracker.

For developers it is possible to customize the GUI (how features are displayed and accessed) by using the "Display Platform Kit".

Johan

I would add things we asked for in 2.3 version but could not be completed then:
- application templates
- more advanced user rights (per function would be great)

Hello,
voting for:

Users / Admins different rights
different sounds for different alarm-events
and may be also different alarm icon on the map
SMS pool per application set @SiteAdmin level
more icons such as car instead of the arrow and not only cars for VT, because VT is in use also for personal tracking
Customizable colors for tracks
Route management, user draw lines (or dots that they will connect) to create routes
customizable user profile - like photo,name of driver, licence number of the car etc.
"clean-database" feature- with different intervalls for different applications set @SiteAdmin level
Cell_ID support so we can truck every phone with appropriate software

a solution of users/drivers sharing one or more vehicles/devices would be nice also

is there a timeline for the next version?

regards

@lele81
Regarding MS Mappoint. Why are you interested in it? We aim to support many map formats, and have powerful means of creating plugins (that also 3rd parties can use).
But, I haven't been able to find any means/information of using Mappoint in a "modern" way since it isn't tile-based like basically all other web maps. Thus it would require significantly more development to "squeeze" into GGS/VT.
If you are only looking for low-price maps(?) have you investigated the OpenStreetMap alternative?
See this plugin for example: http://franson.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10648
There might also be other local map provider alternatives that are cheaper.

Thanks for your feedback, we listen!

Regards,
Fredrik

MS Mappoint is better than Openstreetmap and cheaper than other vectorial maps (like Teleatlas, Navtech, ecc).

Thanks a lot.

Hy
in my opinion with MS Mappoint compatibility, you can sell more GPSGATE Server license also to people that can't spent many money for buy a license for a map (for example Google Map API).

Many professional software for Avl are compatible with Ms Mappoint : you can see ICOM Radio software for AVL or Motorola PMR Mototrbo digital system uses Ms Mappoint as map.

* Like someone else said: Operators be able to modify geofances

*Option for hiding commands for diffrent users (MyTemplateCommand for example)

* Function for sending e-mail to all user in the application (also for Buddy Tracker.) We would like to send information about things like news, if we have to close down service for some reason and so on.

* Invitation e-mail Buddy Tracker: change subject.
