-By default, ​the unit on the map is displayed by the [[cms/​units/​image|icons assigned to them]] and their names (captions color is red). Icons for units can be selected from a standard set, e.g. {{:​icons:​standard.png?​nolink}},​ or you can upload your own image using the [[cms/​units/​image|Unit Properties => Image]] ​dialog. In addition, the icon can rotate depending on the course (direction) of the unit. This feature is also defined in unit properties. ​+By default, ​unit on the map is displayed by an [[cms/​units/​image|icon assigned to it]] which is selected when the unit is configured, and a caption with its name.

-Besides, the colors of these icons (arrow, square, circle) can be different and depend on the value of sensor. This functionality is adjusted ​on the //​[[:​cms/​units/​adv#​usage_of_sensor_colors|Advanced]]//​ tab of unit properties. In other words, the shape of the icon is defined by the state (standing still — square, moving — arrow), and the color depends on the sensor value (intervals and colors are adjusted in [[:​cms/​units/​sensors/​props#​intervals_and_colors|sensor properties]]). ​+Besides, the colors of these icons (arrow, square, circle) can be different and depend on the value of the sensor.

Inactive units are units that have not received ​messages with data for more than 48 hours. Other units are considered active.
  
-The system supports the possibility of differentiating unit states on the map. To do this, check the //Blur icons of inactive units// box in [[:​user/​set/​general#​unit_visualization_on_map|user settings]]. In this case inactive units are displayed on the map with blurred icons and transparent names. If the signs of motion are used instead of icons, then transparency is used both for signs and names. If the //Display overlapping units in one icon// box is checked in //User Settings//, and all the units with overlapping icons are inactive, ​then the icon for them is displayed ​blurry. Moreover, the icons of drivers or trailers bound to the inactive unit are also blurred until they are unbound. ​+The system supports the possibility of differentiating unit states on the map.
