Once you have created the assets, you should be able to see on the Live View - you will need to wait until the devices to report their location (either when the heartbeat or when they move).
The map will zoom in to the asset by clicking on the Asset name on the list on the right
You can also view assets on the live view map by click the location in the Assets Tab.
The Address Book is where contacts are setup in TG. Contacts are notified by alerts. You need an Address Book entry to send an alert, so setup your Address Book before creating an alert.
Admin Tab -> Address Book
Recovery mode can be used to help recover a stolen asset. When set, a device reports more frequently, and begins 'live tracking' when on the move.
This can be enabled with in the Asset Tab view.
Movement Alert is a one-touch feature to allow the user to set an "anchor" to the asset so that it will notify the user when it next moves. It is ideal for trailers, recreational equipment, horse floats, boats, motorbikes, dollies, equipment, and even vehicles where the user is concerned about theft of an asset when leaving it temporarily at a location.
Battery Low and Devices Not Connected Alerts
