GPS Tracking is one of the most popular features, along with Voice Dispatch and Recording. If your MOTOTRBO radio is equipped with the GPS module, it is able to send its location information across the radio network, which allows the dispatcher to see and track the users' location on the map in TRBOnet Dispatch Console.
AVL Tracking for MOTOTRBO
With the GPS module enabled in your TRBOnet Dispatch application, you can track your radio users. Depending on your radio network, you can poll GPS coordinates at regular intervals, normally 30 seconds or more. The radio users' location is shown on the map. If a radio receives and sends valid GPS coordinates to TRBOnet, its icon turns green. This makes it easy for a dispatcher to check the status of the radios, and their locations.
All location information is stored in the TRBOnet database. This means that it can be played back any time to see the selected users' movements during a specified time interval. Such reports may be helpful for incident investigations.
In this mode you can see the online location of radio users along with their route for the last 30 minutes or any other time interval. Such a combination of real-time positioning with a historical route provides a visual overview of the route.
This is a very popular feature. You can draw areas on the map and apply specific rules to them. For example, a radio user is not allowed to enter this restricted area, and if he does, TRBOnet will send an alert to the dispatcher. You can set time intervals and week days when this rule or a number of rules must be activated.
