Important: This feature is not yet available for Teltonika BLE devices.

Adjustments in the End of the period (Visit to Places report): Currently, when a vehicle is still in a Place, the information presented in the Departure time column of the Visit to Places report is stated in the future.

  1. Time to trigger alarm when the last ignition received was On;
  2. Time to trigger alarm when the last ignition received was Off.


These new configuration options can be used, for instance, to be more accurate when a vehicle has its ignition turned off or when devices enter sleep mode.

New version of the CardReaderApp: A new version of the CardReaderApp is available for download.

You can check this article for the instructions to download and install the latest version of the app.

Excessive fuel consumption alarm: This new alarm gives you a way to be informed, at the end of a period, about the vehicles with Excessive Fuel Consumption, in order to identify inefficiencies and decrease the costs of the operations:



To create a new alarm, the following definitions are needed:

  • Average consumption: The maximum average fuel consumption for the selected vehicles, above which the alarm will be triggered. You must first select the calculation mode (Per Mileage or Per Hour), and then enter the maximum average fuel consumption.
  • Period: The period this alarm will use as reference for the calculation of the average fuel consumption. Options:

    • Weekly: Alarm is triggered every Monday at 00:00 using the period between Monday and Sunday from the past week as reference;
    • Monthly: Alarm is triggered every first day of the month at 00:00 using the past month as reference.

Increased number of Temperature inputs: As of now, we have increased the number of Temperature inputs available per vehicles (from 3 to 10).

Integration with Continental's TPMS - ContiPressureCheck: The newest TPMS module in Frotcom allows you to define TPMS models (i.e., the tires settings) for your vehicles, that later can be used as parameter for the new Tires alarm.


To select a TPMS model for a vehicle, you must select the vehicle in Administration > Vehicles - Details and select the TPMS tab:



Once you have vehicles configured with the TPMS models, you can set up Tires alarms to detect problems in the tires, such as Fast/Slow leaking, Low battery, Temperature below/above, and Pressure below/above:
