HERE Maps Implementation
With this release of the CER 7.1.2, Omnitracs will begin using mapping services provided by the HERE Maps for Geoservices in Incident details and Incident Details report page.
Only the source of the map is changing; the maps themselves will function much as they now. You might notice some differences in the layout of the map controls, such as the placement of the zoom in and zoom out buttons, view selection labels, and with few additional features but they are minor and intuitive to use.
Along with one production issue to fix for allowing numbers in email domain.
The below section highlights the differences in the user interface between previous and current screens of the application.
