View and edit assets

Assets are added to Reveal when a tracking unit is installed on powered or non-powered assets, such as trailers, diggers, or cherry pickers.

Powered assets are not vehicles, but they might appear on Live Map as vehicles.

Non-powered assets are any piece of equipment that does not have a starter motor, ignition, or power source.

From the Asset List screen, you can:

  • View and edit asset information to help you identify the asset in Reveal.
  • Add more asset details to improve the accuracy of reports.
  • Add assets to groups.
  • View the location history of your assets so you can see where the asset was at the time an incident occurred.

The Asset List screen displays the following:
