CalAmp Support (BETA)

Third 3rd party Device integration Calamp Telematics Guru

Telematics Guru (TG) now has a basic implementation of the CalAmp’s LM Direct protocol. This should be considered a beta feature in TG

It is not possible to configure the device via TG. 


CalAmp Hardware Setup:

  • The device must use UDP
  • Send messages to your TG server,  port 8995. Server URLs for your region shown below
  • It is important that the device be set to send messages in chronological sequence from oldest to newest. To make sure that this happens, all messages should be set to the same priority.
  • Set the device up to report it's IMEI, and use this as the Serial when creating the asset in Telematics Guru.

Calamp record to TG value mapping:

The following three CalAmp message types are implemented:

  • Event Report (2)
  • Locate Report (8)
  • User Data with Accumulators (9)

When possible these records have the following values mapped:

  • Log Reason (event code, see Event Code Mapping table below)
  • Sequence Number
  • Date Time
  • Altitude
  • GPS Fix OK
  • GPS Fix 3D
  • Speed KmH
  • Heading
  • Latitude
  • Longitude
  • Inputs (from LMU Status)
  • Analogues (as in Accumulator Mapping table below)

Event Code Mapping:
