Trip Management Release Notes

Release Date: October 28, 2019

  • NEW A new Auto-Arrive/Depart feature will automatically mark stops in a trip as “Arrived” or “Departed” by comparing a vehicle’s GPS position with either:

    • A Site perimeter polygon, if one exists for that stop. That includes polygons created by Trimble MAPS for truck stops, distribution centers, etc., as well as Custom Place Site polygons that you have created in Content Tools.

    • An air distance of 0.5 miles from a stop. Within that distance a stop will be marked as “Arrived.” Outside of that distance it will be marked as “Departed.”

In the past, users had to enter these stop status changes manually. A notification will also be created for every stop status change. The Auto-Arrive/Depart feature and related notifications are on by default and can be turned off by request.

Release Date: October 10, 2019

  • IMPROVED New API endpoints have been added that allow you to call or modify trip information using either the ALK Trip ID returned when you planned the trip or the TMS Trip ID in your planning system.
