After I updated this plugin I can't save Settings->Style options (disable marker grouping)

Labels are still not readable (this is only 8 vehicles)

Sometimes plugin doesn't work correctly

Please send a login to your application to support @ gpsgate.com and we will take a look at the problem.

To enable/disable clustering in a workspace follow those steps:

1. Login to the application to change.
2. Select Workspace to change.
3. Select "Settings" from menu. Go to "Style".
4. Deselect "Enable vehicle marker clustering"
5. Close dialog in upper right corner (do not click "Save").
6. Select "Save" from Workspace menu.

Regards,
Johan

At the moment it can not be disabled by the user. The intention is of course that is should not be needed :) Doesn't it work ok for you?

Some of my clients would like to use marker grouping, and some have only 2 vehicles and on small map zoom smart labels doesn't look good

Thanks for the images.

Comments:
Second image(856) is a kindof bug. It must have been take early after login or view-change? Here
the algorithm hasn't quite "booted" yet. This can/will be fixed.

First image(35) is the real issue, yes. Algorithm currently does a trade-off on how far to move the labels from its vehicle vs label-overlap. Here this leads to too much overlap.
We're currently trying out improvements and also new solutions, especially for clusters (can never promise a 100% algorithm though).

Thanks for the feedback! (Sorry I missed your image post yesterday, downside of editing older posts they don't jump to the top)

Fredrik Blomqvist

We'll probably (re)add this feature, but as an opt-in (per workspace), relatively shortly.

You can now try out the "smart label" by enabling it in the workspace settings.

This plugin seems to work fine as long as there are no marker attributes.

If I disable all marker attributes it's displaying properly.

As soon as I enable marker attributes it stops working.
