Using Address Search

The Address Search field, located in the top right corner of the map view, is useful for identifying a street address or a point of interest on the map. You can find a customer location when creating a geofence, searching for truck stops, service stations, or identifying supplier locations close to one of your trucks.

Enter full or partial address information, a point of interest, or coordinates (latitude and longitude in decimal degrees, e.g. 45.378096, -122.757052). A list of suggestions will display in the region you entered. Selecting a suggestion will place a marker on the location and center it in the map view.
