  2. Select the Vehicle from the dropdown list .
  3. Click Electronic Odometer Configuration.
  4. Under Send Odometer Configuration, select the Sensor type: either J1708 or Axle. If you select J1708, skip to step six. If you select Axle, go to the next step.
  5. Specify the RPM calibration value (revolutions per minute), from 1 to 255. Also specify the Speed calibration value (pulses per mile).

Note: When a message is received from a vehicle that is not defined in the database, the system will automatically create a new entry for that vehicle. When doing so, the system can only fill-in the fields that it knows (those included in the message). These new vehicles are assigned to the default depot for that customer.
