As a user, you can retrieve asset information from the BlackBerry Radar Dashboard, but you have very limited access to modifying asset configurations. If you need configuration changes, speak to an admin user of the application.
The BlackBerry Radar Dashboard lets you access asset tracking information through:
- the Dashboard map
- the Dashboard main menu
The Dashboard map
The Dashboard map opens when you sign in to the Dashboard. It displays assets, asset events, geofences, and other related information, through commonly used map markers and features.
You can choose what types of asset information to display on the map using the map layers button at the upper right corner of the map.
This information includes:
A colored polygon represents a geofence on the map.
The balloon-shaped object represents an asset on the map. When an asset is selected, other assets on the map fade into the background.
You can filter the display of asset markers by trailer types, using the map layers button :
- Dry trailer asset markers
- Intermodal asset markers
- Dry only asset markers
- Chassis asset markers
- Flatbed asset markers
An asset cluster represents a cluster of assets that congregate around a small map space and that cannot be drawn individually due to space constraint. An asset cluster appears as a filled blue circle with a white number in the center that denotes the number of assets it represents. The image below shows an asset cluster that represents 6 assets. You can click on the asset cluster to zoom in and see the individual assets.
A blue dot indicates the location from which a selected asset has sent a data upload. Only the uploads that were performed during the period specified in the asset Timeline view are represented. The image below shows three location history dots along the street the asset is travelling.
A purple marker indicates the location from which an asset has recorded an event. The icon inside the marker indicates the type of event recorded. The image below shows an event marker that indicates an extended stopover. You can view event detail in the asset Timeline view. For more information about event markers, see event markers.
An event cluster represents a cluster of events that congregate around a small map space and that cannot be drawn individually due to space constraint. An event cluster appears as a purple circle with a number in the center that denotes the number of events it represents. The image below shows an event cluster example. You can click on the event cluster to zoom in and see the individual events.
An address search result is a yellow marker with an asterisk, which points to the location of the address you have searched for. Use the Address Search box at the lower right corner of the map. As you type an address into the field, a selection list will be populated and displayed. Selecting one of the addresses will place the address search result marker at that location and center the map on it.
- Clicking on the yellow marker will display the address that was selected.
- Typing and selecting a new address in the search field will move the marker to the new location.
- To clear the marker, uncheck the Address search results box from the map layers button , or reload the page using the "reload" button on the browser.
To remove any of the above information from the map display, use the dropdown menu from the map layers button . For more information, see Map settings.
You can access the Dashboard main menu by clicking on the map.
