Omnitracs Navigation for Android (User Manual)

 

Introduction

Navigation provides distraction-free routes that are efficient, optimized for your truck’s parameters, and use historical data to provide the most accurate routing, improved safety, and on-time arrival. Road information like posted road speeds and toll roads as well as historical use and traffic volume to provide more consistent, predictable, and accurate routes.
As maps are updated, you are prompted to download them. If you are in an area with poor cellular or WiFi connectivity, you may not receive updates until your device can communicate over-the- air.

Using the Map

The map shows your current location and any route you may be following. You can adjust zoom level, map orientation, and what points of interest (POIs) display. If you are en route to a destination, have the option to detour, cancel the route, add a stop, and display turn-by-turn directions. The status bar at the bottom of the screen shows upcoming turns, current location, or selected points of interest.

Route to Destinations

You may receive a trip (a series of stops and associate tasks) from your dispatch office or route to individual destinations manually. You can manually route to destinations by using:

  • Full or partial address
  • The city center
  • A pre-defined list of points of interest
  • Your destination history
  • A list of your previously saved favorites
  • A location on a map

After you choose a destination, you can create a route, save the destination as a favorite, or add the destination to an existing trip. Routing to destinations through trips is covered later.

Before you generate a path to a destination, be sure you have defined your vehicle parameters (weight and dimensions) as well as any route restrictions like avoiding toll roads or dirt roads, hazmat restrictions, or prefer trucking roads. If you forget, you can do so from the destination screen.

Destination Screen
 

  1. Path Settings – Tap to define restrictions like avoid tollways and u-turns, prefer trucking roads, or hazmat class for the directions to this location.
  2. Vehicle Settings – Tap to define vehicle parameters like weight, dimensions, and if it’s a commercial vehicle.

Trips

A trip is a sequence of destinations or stops that may be associated with tasks you perform at these locations. You may receive a trip from your dispatcher as a printed list of stops that you manually search for and assemble into a trip or as a file that you load on the mobile device.


When a trip is started, Navigation calculates a path to the first destination based on the preferred route settings and any restrictions. After you arrive at the destination, perform any tasks, and are ready to depart to the next stop, Navigation provides a path to the next stop.

If you’re using a transportation management system (TMS) on your mobile device, all stop configuration and task activities are done in that application and paths to the next destination are generated Navigation when called by the TMS.

Be aware that by default, trips are stored on your device for 10 hours. This value can be reset by your administrator.

Start a Trip

After you have a trip loaded in Navigation, review it to see if you need to resequence stops, add or remove stops, or are ready to start it. By default, when you start the trip, Navigation generates a route from your current location to the first stop in the sequence. Before you start the trip you can select at a different stop and have Navigation plot a route from your current location to that stop; then sequentially to all other stops on the trip.

To start a trip from the beginning:

  1. Tap Menu.
  2. Tap Trips.
  3. Tap the trip.
  4. Tap Start.

To start a trip from a stop in the middle of a trip:

 

  1. Tap Menu.
  2. Tap Trips.
  3. Tap the trip you want to use, use the arrow buttons to scroll through the list
  4. Tap the stop you want to start the trip from.
  5. Tap Yes.

Receive a Trip from Dispatch

If your company integrates with a transportation management system (TMS), Navigation allows you to receive trips and calculate a route to start the trip.

You are notified when you receive a trip and the notification stays on the screen for 15 seconds. If you are stopped, you can view the trip. If you tap View, you are taken to the trip where can edit or start the trip. If your vehicle is moving, the notification displays, but you cannot view it. After your vehicle is stopped, you can tap Menu > Trips to view the trip.

When you receive an update to an existing trip, the on-screen notification informs you that a trip was updated. If the update affects the stop you’re currently routed to, you are notified that the current trip changed and Navigation recalculates the route to the updated stop.

Settings

Your back office may have defined and locked settings for how Navigation is configured. If the settings are unlocked, you can configure your vehicle's parameters including dimensions and weight. Additionally, you might have permission to define what roadways or restrictions apply when generating routes, set triggers for speeding alerts, and set how the map displays. Other information like GPS fix, map updates, and current software version may be used to troubleshoot problems if they arise.

If a closed padlock displays next to any settings, they are locked by your back office and you cannot modify them.

Select Play below for a video on settings.

Driver Route Settings 
 

1m 17s

View a demonstration of how to define settings to optimize routes generated by Navigation.

 

Vehicle Settings

Navigation uses the vehicle profile (dimensions and weight) when routing. Set or review these settings before you generate a route at your start of day ensure they are accurate. Tap edit next to any parameter to adjust the parameter.

Units are defined under Settings > Units.
Parameter Definition
Overall Length Enter the trailer length in inches/centimeters.
Height     Enter the vehicle’s height (the highest part of the vehicle) in inches/centimeters.
Gross Vehicle Weight Enter the vehicle’s gross weight (including load) in pounds/kilograms.
Commercial Toggle this setting ON to indicate that you want to be routed over commercial vehicle-approved roadways only. Toggle it off to generate routes that use commercial and non-commercial vehicle-approved roadways.

Map Settings

Auto Zoom

When off, you manually adjust the zoom using the + and – buttons on the map. When on, the zoom level of the map dynamically adjusts to show the level of detail you need at that point of your route.

POI On/Off

You may set which, if any, points-of-interest (POIs) display on the map. You can choose to show or hide all POIs by checking or unchecking the box next to All, or display only certain types of POIs. If a POI type has a + sign next to it, there are sub types available. Tap the type to select sub-types of POIs. When a partial list of POIs is selected, the box next to the type and All shows a minus sign instead of a check mark.
The Appendix lists all the POI types and sub-types. The sub-types for restaurant and hotel/motel also break down into a third level, which is reflected in subsequent tables.

Map Orientation

You can set your map to display as heading up, north up, or 3D. In heading up orientation, the map continuously rotates so that the vehicle’s current heading is always at the top of the map. In north up orientation, north is always at the top and the map does not turn as the vehicle turns. The 3D setting uses a heading up orientation, but displays the map in a three-dimensional view. Tap the compass on the map to cycle through these orientations. If you zoom out to a very large scale, the map automatically switches to North Up orientation, but switches back to your chosen orientation after you zoom back in.

Path Settings

Path settings are related to the types of roads and help determine the best route. You can select or change these options after a route has already been calculated and the route will be recalculated using your new preferences.

Parameter     Behavior
Use Tollways Routes may be include toll roads. Turn this setting off to avoid toll roads in routing, which may result in less efficient routes.
Use Dirt Roads Routes may include dirt roads. Turn this setting off to avoid dirt roads in routing.
Prefer Trucking Roads If enabled, routing will prefer state highways and interstates that are part of the National Network based on the Surface Transportation Assistance Act.
Historic Traffic The application considers historic traffic patterns when calculating routes to generate the most efficient routes.

Speed Alerts

Speed alerts are audible and on-screen notifications trigged by exceeding a configurable, overspeed threshold for a set duration. This configuration may set and locked from the Navigation portal back office application.

Parameter     Definition
Speed Alerts Choose whether speed alerts are enabled or disabled on this device.
Alert Sound Choose whether an audible alert will sound or not when you exceed the speeding threshold and speeding duration. This sound will repeat every 15 seconds until you reduce speed or the posted road speed changes.
Speeding Threshold Set how much faster than the posted road speed that the vehicle needs to be moving to trigger a speed alert. The threshold can be set to any speed between 0-20 mph or 0-40 km/h.
Speeding Duration  Set the duration of time the speeding threshold must be exceeded before an alert is triggered. The duration can be set to any length of time between 0 seconds and 30 minutes.

Sounds – Volume

Tap the toggle to enable or disable Navigation sounds. Volume for these sounds is controlled through the device’s volume settings.

Color Scheme

You can choose what display that works best for your lighting situation. Day mode is brighter and easy to see when there is a lot of surrounding light. Night mode dims the screen so that, in low light situations, you don’t have to adjust between a bright screen and the road.

Units

You can view and enter values in imperial units or metric units.

GPS Status

The GPS status gives the current signal strength of the mobile device, location of the vehicle according to GPS calculations, and the Doppler (DOP) value. It also identifies how many GPS satellites are seen and how many are being used to calculate the current position.

Configure Shortcut

If not locked by your back office, you can identify what shortcuts appear on the shortcut menu on the map screen. By enabling these shortcuts, you can quickly navigate to these features.

About

This screen displays the version of Navigation you are running, the version of the map set that’s installed, your device’s ID, and copyright/disclosures/disclaimers as related to Navigation and our partners.
