We are having the same problem as some have already mentioned; the iOS8 home screen web app is not working properly, most notably the zoom is broken. Unfortunately the home screen web app is very important for our users as they want to feel they are using an app. I realize this is an iOS8 issue, but is there any chance you could work around it until Apple has resolved the issue?

Agreed. I get this at least twice a week from my customers regardless how many times I explain. To most it still seems like an AVL "problem". Even some type of workaround would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

- Interesting thoughts on the select and zoom, we're discussion and testing tweaks.
(We might also open up for some more user settings, which buttons are showing in the UI etc).

- Windows Phone should work! Have a 630 and 930 confirmed here for example. Investigating it, probably it's actually same loading/login freeze reported here previously. Have you tried clearing the browser cache on you Lumia too? When/how does it stop working? Right at the login?
(A known issue at the moment is a formatting error in the vehicle list causing empty space at the top).

- Old Android 2.x is not a prioritized platform I'm afraid. At least not the native browser, if Chrome runs on it it might work (probably slow though).

- Track drawing will most likely be one of the next features we release.

- "Follow selected" is interesting and agree quite useful, we're considering it.

Thanks for the feedback and ideas, keep posting :)

Fredrik Blomqvist

Yes, we too really like the home screen mode. We're testing ways to fix it, at least IOS 8.1 might be possible hopefully.

.. regarding sound (or vibration) it could be added yes. Not sure it would always be practical to beep every position update though.. ;)
*BUT* must keep in mind, problem with sound is that, AFAIK, no mobile browser lets you play sound while the browser is minimized. I.e you must not expect to be able to get notifications while using other apps. If you're aware of that then ok of course.

About sound if someone have more than one device we usually create one "masteruser" that can control all device and many single user for every device.
For this reason i think that the better solution for "sound function" is with a switch like alert or traffic, because if someone open masteruser not active this function but if someone use single user is usefull check the movement with sound.
About sound when browser is minimized we don't need sound when minimized is not a problem.

Regards and thank for support,

BUG FOUND - Hi, Custom Measure Units are not displayed in Mobile Plugin. I created two new units "A" and "mA" (Ampere and MilliAmpere) which are assigned to a Variable "BatteryChargeCurrent". In the normal Desktop View, the Unit is displayed correct, but in the Mobile Plugin the Unit is not displayed. And also the Factor is not correct!

Dear Support team,

I suggest the interface can:
-Show POI similar to PC web interface
-Use this mobile interface as POI collector.

Thanks
Best regards

There is a new release of the mobile plugin on the beta repository. This build is aimed at addressing some of our most common feature requests.

Features
Track Drawing: Mobile view now supports track drawing on mobile devices. The first release of the feature allows you to draw a devices last recorded track.

There is a new area in the vehicle list called Tracks. This area will only display if the vehicle has recently recorded a track.

Clicking on the 'Draw' button will draw the track on the map.

You can see details about the track in the summary panel when you have the tab closed in the same way you can see vehicle details.

If you have closed the summary panel at any time you can click the track to to display it again.

You can clear a track by clicking the 'Wipe' button in the vehicle list or the eraser icon in the summary panel.

Commands: Mobile now supports sending template commands from mobile devices.

There is a new area in the vehicle list called Commands. This area will only display if the vehicle has a device which has template commands.

Clicking on the 'Run' button next to the name of a command will execute the command.

You will see the status and progress of the currently executing command and can click the 'Abort' button to clear the command queue for the device.

This section is designed to run template commands that do not require parameters. If you want to run any other command simply create an alias of the command with all its parameters configured.

Clustering: Mobile now supports clustering of map markers that are close to each other.

Clustering is enabled by default but can be switched off in the Settings page.

When vehicles are close on the map, a graphic with a number indicating how many vehicles are part of the cluster will display instead of multiple markers which can sometimes overlap.

Tapping a cluster will zoom the map and display the vehicles that were part of the cluster.

Map markers will now respect the 'Identifier' setting (name/username), allowing you to configure what appears on the marker label.A heading indicator has now been added to the summary panel and information panel for each vehicle trackediOS 8.1 home screen apps based on the mobile view will now have very basic panning support on iPhone. This is a temporary workaround for a major bug in iOS driven by partner requests and is NOT a supported feature. It may not function well with certain devices.
Fixes
Loading progress bar stalling fixed in many casesTap and hold on the search filters now working in new versions of Android ChromeWindows Phone 8.1 now displays the vehicle list correctly when many vehicles are presentVehicle List could stop updating in certain cases. All currently identified causes of this have been fixedMobile now respects the time zone of each individual applicationChanging application now closes all vehicle information tabs to prevent displaying incorrect vehicles

As always, this is a beta plugin release. Please try it out on your testing servers and give us your feedback!

Regards,
Andrew

It would be good, if the features could be switched on/off too, because not all users need all the features in the mobile app. It is overloading more and more... thx.
