Enter the serial number for the Geotab® GO9™; it will begin with GA or G9 and be twelve characters long (ex. G9XXXXXXXXXX).

Click Save or Save & Add New to store and add another device.


Vehicle Tracking Plus

Vehicle Tracking Plus includes all of the mapping features of Vehicle Tracking and also provides mileage records that can be used for IFTA and IRP reporting. (Vehicle Tracking is the default Data Plan selection for your devices.) Vehicle Tracking Plus is an additional charge; reach out to your sales representative to learn more about Vehicle Tracking Plus and any additional charges this would incur.


Note: If you decide to make the switch to Vehicle Tracking Plus, an Encompass admin will need to make the selection on their end. To do so:

Go to Vehicle Management > Setup > Vehicle Tracking Device List.


Select the device you would like to enable Vehicle Tracking Plus on and choose Edit.


Change the Device Data Plan to Vehicle Tracking Plus and Save.



Access Roles

Administrators will need to provide access to users for vehicle tracking.  See User Roles (Permissions) for more information about granting user access.
