What is Automatic Vehicle Management?

Applies To

  • MyGeotab
  • GoDevice
  • Vehicles

Answer

  • When this feature is enabled, it manages when devices get switched between vehicles
  • When the device detects a different VIN, it automatically makes the vehicle historical, and creates a new vehicle

Additional Notes

  • In cases where the new VIN that the device detects is from an existing vehicle in the database, it will replace the device of that vehicle, instead of creating a new vehicle
  • This feature does not work with the following cases:
    • The device goes from a vehicle with an Invalid VIN to a vehicle with a Valid VIN
    • The device goes from a vehicle with an Invalid VIN to another vehicle with an Invalid VIN
