Product overview

The Fleet website is used to manage farm operation data received from a range of vehicles and implements. You can access it through an Internet browser such as Microsoft® Internet Explorer®, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Google™ Chrome.

Use the Fleet website to manage your vehicles. First establish a connection to a vehicle’s on-board communication device, such as the DCM-300 modem. Once the connection is established, the back-end system can receive information from that vehicle. Do this for your entire fleet. The back-end system processes the vehicle data into secure databases where you can access the data on demand.

The Fleet website was enhanced to better integrate with other powerful Trimble Ag software services. You can now switch easily between the Dashboard and Fleet pages to access all information including vehicle tracking, alerts, reporting, and productivity.

FarmStream Fleet Manager and traditional Fleet Manager utilities

A new version of the Fleet Manager utility is now available: The FarmStream Fleet Manager utility is a powerful tool for farm operation managers, enabling them to closely monitor the productivity of their fleet of vehicles.

The traditional version of the Fleet Manager utility is still available, with some changes to its productivity features.

Customers can choose whether they want to use the traditional or FarmStream version of the Fleet Manager solution for each of their vehicles. They can have a mixture of the FarmStream Fleet Manager and traditional Fleet Manager vehicles in their fleet and see the data from both types of Fleet Manager utility in one organization.

For a summary of differences between the Farmstream Fleet Manager and traditional Fleet Manager utilities, see the Feature Chart.

Feature overview

The Fleet website allows you to view vehicle locations for mixed fleets with alerts to help improve operator performance and overall efficiency. You can:

  • View and download fleet positions overlaid on background imagery.
  • Identify the current and historical status of vehicles such as moving, working, stopped, or off.
  • Use the new controls to manage geofences, curfew, and ignition alerts.
  • Monitor vehicle engine hours.

Use the Fleet website to analyze the performance of your vehicles by connecting to their CAN bus system. Information gathered can be used to enhance productivity, efficiency, and swift decision-making. You can:

  • Manage fuel usage, battery voltage, oil pressure, and other valuable diagnostics.
  • Monitor vehicle health and performance.
  • Capture time spent moving, working, stopped, or off as well as delay reason.
  • Collect vehicle sensor data over a period of time and display the accumulated data in a graph.

See also Creating Delay thresholds.

Customers must purchase the Farmer Pro or Pro Plus bundle and Vehicle Connection license for their DCM-300 modem (for the traditional Fleet Manager utility) or the FmX display (for the FarmStream Fleet Manager utility) in order to use most of the Fleet features described in this document. Customers using Farmer Starter will see only a limited feature set.

Importing Operators

Operators can be imported from a .csv file. The following is an example:

LoginID First Name  Last Name  Job Title Group
BSmith1 Bob Smith Operator1 GroupA
JSmith1 John Smith  Operator1 GroupB
  • Operators are added to the Operator list or Group specified if the Login ID, Last Name, and First Name fields are specified and the Login ID does not already exist.If any row fails to import, the import will continue with the next row.
  • The check for Login ID duplication is not case sensitive (that is, the system will not create JSmith1 if jsmith1 already exists).
  • You must create groups in the user interface before you import operators.
    • If the Group does not exist the operator is not imported and the row fails.
    • If no Group is specified in the .csv file, the operator is created and added to the Unassigned list.
    • Group is a match if it contains the same characters, regardless of case (that is, GroupA or groupa).
  • Job Title is added for each job title in the file and depends on the number of characters. It is a match if it contains the same characters, regardless of case (for example, Foreman or foreman).

An Import report is created that includes the folllowing:

  • Any rows that did not import due to insufficient or duplicate data.
  • The number of successful logins created.
  • The groups that could not be found during the import.
