Units

Unit is a system macro object defined by its specific device type and unique identification number (UID). It represents a vehicle, machine, person, pat or any other mobile or stationary object that can be controlled with the help of a GPS tracking system.

Working with units is possible both in CMS Manager and in the main Wialon interface. To work with units in CMS Manager, open the Units tab in the navigation panel. Units configured here become available for tracking (watch on the map, control different parameters, etc.).

Here you can create a new unit, observe existent units, view or edit their properties, define access rights to units, and remove units from the system. Read Standard operations for details. Besides, you can transfer units from one account into another.

Moreover, there is a possibility to create units with settings improrted from WLP files. To do so, click the 'Create from WLP' button. Choose a file, indicate the necessary parameters, and click 'Next'. Afterwards, a unit with the indicated parameters is created, and a properties dialog of the created unit is opened.

Unit Properties Dialog

Unit properties dialog is displayed when you create, edit or copy a unit. It contains many tabs and fields that define different unit parameters and how the program will interpret data received from this unit.

The number of tabs can vary depending on your access rights (max — 11).

Use the following links to get to know the details about each parameter:
