Telematics Frequently Asked Questions
If there is insufficient satellite coverage, machine position will not be transmitted to our systems and while we will continue to take feeds from the servers, there will be no update to the position information. Other data sets such as meter should continue to update. The most common cause of loss of satellite coverage is when units are moved into buildings but may also occur anywhere the device is shielded from an adequate number of satellites such as in urban areas with many tall buildings.
If there is not a sufficient cellular signal, no information will be transmitted to our systems and while we will continue to take feeds from ZTR’s servers there will be no update to the information. A weak signal can also introduce incorrect data to the system such as a location that appears to suddenly and dramatically shift. Cellular signal loss can result from many causes including remote location and when units are moved inside of buildings.
Occasionally, the link between the machine and the telematics device fails. This can cause a loss of machine data or possibly a corruption of machine data. An ongoing loss of power from the machine to the device will drain the device battery and the unit may cease to communicate.
