Immobilising a vehicle

To prevent a vehicle from being started, you can send an immobilisation request to a vehicle’s tracking unit. Once the request is complete, the vehicle will be immobilised. The vehicle cannot be restarted until you remobilise the vehicle.

Note: If you have migrated from Trackeasy and Ornicar, follow the procedure outlined in Method 2.

  1. Open the Edit Vehicle screen.
    • From Live Map, do the following:
      • Choose Vehicle status, and then select the vehicle from the list.
