Go to Performance Management > Mapping.
The Live Map or Most Recent Position Map is what is shown when mapping is first clicked.
The map style can be changed by clicking the drop-down in the upper left-hand corner of the map, selecting a new style, and clicking Refresh Map.
The list of drivers on the map is listed to the left of the map. The drivers listed here under the Drivers tab are utilizing ELDs with the Encompass® ELD application. If utilizing Vehicle Tracking, the list of tracked vehicles will be under the Vehicles tab. Click on the Unit Code to zoom in and center on that specific ELD/Vehicle Tracking Device.
Note: Drivers/Vehicles cannot be added to this list directly.
What if there are drivers missing from this list?
Since the drivers are populated from the Encompass® ELD application utilizing an ELD, the driver needs to be connected to the ELD, which provides the GPS information. Additionally, the driver must have internet/network connection for that information to be transmitted from the ELD application to Encompass.
The legend is found on the right side of the map and can be expanded or hidden. Click Show to view the legend.
Individual items can be shown or hidden on the map. For example, if I have vehicles that have ELDs and other vehicles that are using Vehicle Tracking and I only want to see the Vehicle Tracking units, I can click on Display ELD to strike through that item in the legend and the map will not display the ELDs.

For more information on Vehicle History, see this page: Tracking Vehicles in Encompass
Click History next to a driver to view their specific gps history.
The history map will provide detail for one unit at a time. This map will show 25 bread crumb points (contingent on network connection) during the timeframe specified in the green box in the image below. This can be adjusted by changing the "From" and "To" date and time and selecting the time between points.
Additionally, their hours of service information will be displayed at the top as shown in the red box in the image below. Make note of the detail to the left of the driver's name as it provides when the information was last updated. The hours of service information may not be current to that exact minute but is meant to give a general idea.
In addition to the bread crumb points, a linear representation will display on the map on the right providing more detail of the route taken by the driver.
Note: There may be bread crumb points that do not have driver information associated with them. This is due to certain GPS pings that are not associated with a driver that will display in this detail, such as fuel tax pings, which will not have a driver name listed.
Auto refresh map
A link to the Auto Refresh Map is found at the top of the Live Map.
The Auto Refresh Map opens in a separate window, and is designed to refresh at whatever interval the user chooses (default is 15 minutes), as long as the user doesn't click Log Out in their previous Encompass page to log out of Encompass (if the system logs the user out automatically, the map should still be usable).
It will allow the option to filter the map using the map legend on the right, just like the Overview Map but will refresh on it's own based on the Refresh Internal selected.
This map will display any landmarks or geo-fences if any are setup.
The idea for this map is that it could be kept up and used possibly by someone in a dispatch or customer service function to monitor where the vehicles are, how close they are to drop off/pick up points, etc., throughout the day.
