How does the idle warning work?

Applies To

  • Driver feedback

Answer

An in-vehicle alert can be set to go off if the vehicle is stationary for more than the desired timeframe set up in the driver feedback section within the MyGeotab software. This blog post provides more information on in-vehicle alerts. Idling, from the device perspective, is any period of time spent with the ignition on with a road speed of zero.
