Overview

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 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 map_layers_button at the upper right corner of the map.

This information includes:

Geofences

A colored polygon represents a geofence on the map.

Asset markers

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 map_layers_button:

  • Dry trailer asset markers
  • Intermodal asset markers
  • Dry only asset markers
  • Chassis asset markers
  • Flatbed asset markers

Asset clusters

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.

Location history dots

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.

Event markers

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.

Event clusters

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.

Address search results

To remove any of the above information from the map display, use the dropdown menu from the map layers button map_layers_button. For more information, see Map settings.

You can access the Dashboard main menu by clicking BlackBerry button on the map.
