-A unit is presented on the map by its icon. The unit name and movement direction arrows are shown as well (by default). You can also activate units traces, or so called //​tails// ​(switched off by default). Click the {{:​icons:​settings.png?​nolink}} button in the lower right corner to enable/​disable the above mentioned settings.+A unit is presented on the map by its icon.

Click the {{:​icons:​settings.png?​nolink}} button in the lower right corner to enable/​disable the above-mentioned settings.
  
-If among the units presented on the map you need to monitor a particular one, you can use the monitoring tool. Click on the corresponding button ({{:​icons:​follow-off.png?​nolink}}/​{{:​icons:​follow-on.png?​nolink}}) in the right top corner and select the necessary unit from the dropdown list. Afterwards the map will be scaled and centered on the selected unit. To disable scaling and centering, select a dash from the dropdown list. Note that you cannot monitor all the available units at once. Therefore, if you select //All units// in the dropdown list, only search is performed, and all the available units get into the field of view.+If among the units presented on the map you need to monitor a particular one, you can use the monitoring tool.

-After the unit has been found, you can view its latest data. The data is shown in the window that is opened by clicking on the unit. The amount of provided information depends on the unit state (moving/​stationary). If it is moving (movement arrow is an indicator), then the following parameters are shown for it: speed, time of movement, its duration and covered distance. For a unit which is not moving such parameters as speed and covered distance are irrelevant, therefore only two parameters are shown for it: the time of the start of the stationary state and its duration. Besides, regardless of the unit state the header of the opened window contains such information as the time passed from the last message and address from the last message. Note that upon receiving new messages either position of a unit on the map or its current parameters are automatically refreshed.+After the unit has been found, you can view its latest data.

-If it is necessary to know the history of a unit'​s ​(units'movement, you can generate and view its track (for the last 24 hours). To do this, click on the button {{:​icons:​track-locator.png?​nolink}} in the upper right corner and select the required unit from the dropdown list. Afterwards, a track is built, and the map is scaled in order for the whole track to be displayed. If the tracks are built for several units at a time, they are shown in different colors on the map and the map itself is scaled so that they all get in the field of vision. To remove a track from the map, click on the track building button again or uncheck the boxes of the units whose tracks you want to delete. Note that in the locator the track color is selected randomly and it does not depend on any unit settings. ​+If it is necessary to know where the unit (units) ​was since the launch of the locator, you can generate and view its track.
