 **Map**\\ **Map**\\
-The main purpose of the map mode is to show the location of unit, as well as its speed and address from the last received message. ​The map cannot be moved, ​because it is automatically centered on the last position of unit and it does not leave the field of visionExcept for this peculiarity, working ​with mini windows ​in the map mode is completely ​identical to working with the main map.+In the the //​Map// ​mode, you can see the location of the unit, as well as its speed and address from the last received message. ​You cannot move the map because it is automatically centered on the last position of the unit. Apart from that, working in the map mode is identical to working with the main map.
  
-In the map mode, you can activate [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Google_Street_View|Google Street View]] or Yandex Panorama using the buttons in the lower right corner. In this way, you can track units along the '​real'​ streets. Google Street View is a Google Maps feature that allows you to view panoramic views of the streets ​of many cities around the world from a height of about 2.5 meters. The service makes it possible to view houses, roads and all surrounding objects on the street, creating the illusion of virtual presence. At the moment, the service covers North America, Australia, New Zealand, Western Europe, Japan, Indonesia, and Brazil. Yandex Panorama is also a panoramic view technology featured in Yandex ​maps.

-Google Street View required the activation of Google ​Maps (//​[[user/​set/​maps|User ​Settings]]//) and requires ​the availability of [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Google_Street_View#​Coverage|coverage]] ​for the geographical area.

For Yandex Panorama, ​select ​Yandex ​as a map source ​and take into account ​the coverage of the service. 
 =====Online Notifications in Minimaps===== =====Online Notifications in Minimaps=====
  
-Minimaps provide ​you with an alternative way of viewing ​[[:​user/​notify/​online|online notifications]]. ​Upon online notification triggering an opened minimap of corresponding ​unit is highlighted in red. If the minimap ​is hidden, ​then it will be shown automatically upon receiving ​of a notification. To receive and view online notifications in minimaps, ​it is necessary to check the //Blink minimap// ​box while choosing ​a [[:​user/​notify/​action|notification action]].+In minimaps, ​you can view the received ​[[:​user/​notify/​online|online notifications]]. ​When notification triggers, the unit minimap ​is highlighted in red.

-An icon indicating ​number of unread notifications ​appears in a minimap'​s header near the mode switcher. Click the icon to view received notificationsThe concept of work with notification is identical to the one used in the online ​notifications window. To return to the initial mode used, click the notifications ​icon once again. ​:!: Note that a minimap is not synchronized ​to the online ​notifications window, therefore reading or deleting notifications in a minimap does not lead to any changes in the window of online notifications.+In the minimap header, ​ you can see an icon indicating ​the number of unread notifications. Click on it to view themHere you can read and delete notifications as in the //​Online ​notifications// window. To return to the initial mode, click on the icon again. ​Minimaps are not synchronized ​with the //​Online ​notifications// window, therefore reading or deleting notifications in a minimap does not lead to any changes in the window of online notifications
 + 
 +The maximum number of minimaps is nine. If you have nine minimaps opened and a notification is received from another unit, you can view it only in the //Online notifications//​ window. 
 + 
 +===== Working with Minimaps ===== 
 + 
 +In the header of every minimap, there is a unit icon and name so that you can simply find the required one. The mode switches and the //Close// button ({{:​icons:​close.png?​nolink|}}) are also in the header. You can open up to nine minimaps at the same time (one minimap per unit)
  
-The maximum number of minimaps ​corresponds to 9 itemsThat is why if all the available windows are already opened, and a notification has come for a unit not opened in a minimapthen a notification will be available ​in the window of online notifications only. +You can hide or display all minimaps ​at once by clicking on the button {{:​icons:​view_minimap.png?​nolink}} in the left corner of the [[user/​gui/​bottom|bottom panel]]. When you go to the //​Reports//,​ //​Messages//​, and //Routes// tabsthe minimaps are automatically hidden to avoid excessive information. If needed, you can display them by clicking on the button ​in the bottom panel. When you leave these tabs, the minimaps are shown again automatically
-===== Manipulations with Minimaps =====+
  
-There are a scaled icon and a unit name in the header of every help window in order to simplify ​the search of the necessary one. A mode switch and a close button are also situated in the header. You can open up to 9 help windows in the tracking ​system. Besidesyou can use only one minimap per unit.+After logging ​in to the system, ​the last layout of minimaps is restored.
  
-The button {{:​icons:​view_minimap.png?​nolink}} in the left corner of the [[user/​gui/​bottom|bottom panel]] can be used to hide/show all minimaps at once. Apart from that, to avoid excessive information,​ minimaps are automatically hidden when you switch to the //​Reports//,​ //​Messages//,​ and //Routes// panels (but even then, they can be shown forcibly if necessary). Minimaps are shown automatically upon leaving these panels. 
  
-The latest used layout of minimaps is restored each time a user authorizes in the system.
