Map screen

Use the Map screen to quickly find the location and status of the vehicles in your organization’s fleet in near real-time using a combined map and list view.


To filter the vehicle list and the map by vehicle status, tap the moving, idling, or stopped buttons to view only vehicles with the selected status. The number of vehicles with each status is shown as a number. To view all vehicles, tap the vehicles button. If you have a large fleet of vehicles (more than 200), these status buttons might not be available.

To quickly locate an individual vehicle or driver, tap the Search field at the top of the screen and begin typing the name of the vehicle or driver. Only names that completely or partially match the text you enter are shown.

If you have a large fleet of more than 200 vehicles, you can search only within the current map view. Pan and zoom the map to show only the geographical area you are interested in, and then begin typing the name of the vehicle or driver you want to locate into the main Search field. You can also tap the Search this area button below the main Search field. Only vehicles and drivers that match your search terms and are within the current map view are shown in the search results.


Tap the name of a driver or vehicle in the list of search results to pan and center the map on their location and view information about their status. To re-center the map on your current location, tap the arrow icon in the bottom right corner of the map.


Vehicle map view

The map view at the center of the screen indicates where individual vehicles are currently located, and their status. The status of individual vehicles shown on the map is represented by the following icons:


Moving: Indicates that the vehicle is moving in the direction of the arrow


Idle: The vehicle is not moving, but the ignition is on


Stopped: The vehicle is not moving, and its ignition is off


No signal: The last known location of the vehicle before its signal was lost


Privacy: The last known location of the vehicle when it entered privacy mode


Towing: The vehicle is being towed


Panic: A panic alert has been triggered for this vehicle

If you have a large fleet of more than 200 vehicles, and several of your vehicles are near one another, a black cluster icon is shown representing this grouping. A number on each cluster icon indicates how many vehicles are contained in that cluster.

Tap anywhere on the map to switch between an expanded full screen view displaying only the map, and a compact hybrid view showing the map, the search field, and a list of vehicles on a sliding panel. Pan the map by dragging it with your fingers and zoom in and out or rotate the map by dragging or rotating two fingers on the map. 

A satellite map view is also available to help you identify local geographic features and landmarks, as well as options to view real-time traffic and map labels.

Tap any map vehicle icon to center the map on the vehicle's location and to open a panel containing information about the vehicle, including its name, its status and current movement details, and the closest street address.


Tap Directions on the panel to generate a turn-by-turn route between your current location and the location of the vehicle or driver using the default map application on your device.

Tap More details to view additional details about the vehicle on the vehicle details page. Information on this page includes the nearest street address, the vehicle's assigned driver, make, model, year of manufacture, 17-character VIN, registration, fuel type, fleet group membership, nearby vehicles, and recent alerts. To share these details by messenger, email or text message, tap the Share icon in the upper right corner of the screen and then choose a sharing method.


Tap the driver’s name to view information about the driver on the driver details page. Information on this page includes their assigned vehicle, contact details, and any alerts associated with them. You can also see more information about their assigned vehicle by tapping its name.

From the driver details screen you can send the driver an email by tapping the red icon beside their email address or call or message them by tapping the red icons beside their phone number.

On the vehicle details screen, tap the Today or Yesterday buttons to open a history view containing details of any events recorded for the vehicle on these days.

Tap the address of the vehicle directly below the map to open an action menu and choose from the following options:

  • Tap Open in Navigation to generate a route to the vehicle's location in the Verizon Connect Navigation app, if installed
  • Tap Open in Maps to view the vehicle's location in your default map app
  • Tap Share Location to share details of the vehicle's location, including a link to the location in Google Maps, in any of the messaging apps installed on your device


Vehicle list view

The vehicle panel below the map lists all vehicles in your organization’s fleet, all vehicles with a specified status (such as "moving" or "idling"), or all vehicles that match a search query (such as vehicle name) made in the search field at the top of the screen.

Slide the vehicle panel up and down by dragging the tab icon at the top of the panel, or anywhere on the vehicle panel itself.


Each vehicle shown in the list displays some or all of the following information:

  • The name of the vehicle, as specified in Reveal
  • The name of the driver assigned to the vehicle
  • The location of the vehicle, if known
  • The status and speed of the vehicle in its last report

Tap any vehicle in the list to center the map on its location and tap More details to see more information about it or tap Directions to map a route between your current location and the vehicle's location.
