Administration > Terminals > Garmin PND - How are the alarms displayed in Frotcom?

More recent Garmin navigation devices (PNDs) have the ability to detect and transmit speed alarms considering the speed limits of the roads. Some others have cameras that can also detect driving alarms such as forwards collision and lane departure.

On the Alarms section you are allowed to configure the parameters used for the following alarms:

  • Garmin PND speed alarm
  • Garmin PND dash cam incident alarm
  • Garmin PND dash cam forward collision alarm
  • Garmin PND dash cam lane departure alarm

The previously mentioned alarms are displayed to the Frotcom web user in the Alarms page.

Please note that at this moment it is not possible to send these particular alarms by email and SMS, or define the restrictions for when the alarms can be triggered.

As a user of the Frotcom web interface, it will now be depicted how you understand each one of the 4 mentioned alarms.

It is important to point out that if you want to retrieve a recorded video representative of one of the following alarms

  • Garmin dash cam incident alarm
  • Garmin dash cam forward collision alarm
  • Garmin dash cam lane departure alarm

you need to get the name of the video file from Frotcom's web platform, in the corresponding alarm's details page. The file will be saved in the Garmin PND's inserted SD card. See below where to find the name of the video file, in the alarms details page.
