Moving previously installed tracker to new vehicle

This part of the tutorial cowers how to register a tracking device moved from one vehicle to a new vehicle. For instance, when a vehicle has been sold and new one is bought and the client wishes to shift device from the old (now sold) vehicle to the new vehicle.

Registering the movement is done in two phases:

  1. Terminating the old object representing the old vehicle in Ecofleet
  2. Adding new object – vehicle (similar to adding entirely new device to the system)

Phase 1 - Terminating the object representing the old vehicle

Now click on ’demontage’ report

Phase 2 – create new object for the new vehicle

Confirm data reception

Click on ‘installation report’
