  System Managed Logs  

There are two System Managed Logs that can be selected.  Both logs are System Managed, and cannot be altered or renamed. 
They are pre-set to operate a certain way, and require additional consideration:

  • Distance:  This meter will track the distance traveled on a set of tires, in the Tire Tracking application (Coming Soon!)

Distance log's availability is established at the Site level by your system administrator.  Go to Settings > Administration > Sites.  When you select your site, the details of the site will appear.  Under Distance Unit you can decide if your distances will be measured in Metric or Imperial standards.  Keep in mind, that this will be your standard across the entire Site.  Multiple sites can have different Distance standards



  • Trip Distance:  This is the trip meter, as seen on most vehicles.  It is recommended that this be tracked separately from the main vehicle odometer.  Available now.
