The Journey Map displays the start point of any registered journey. The journey can be registered on the web site or via the mobile app. The map does not represent the actual location or live availability of the driver.
The map does not currently auto refresh, so to get the most recent live view of the map, click on the 'Refresh' button located on the right side of the map title bar. The time the map was last updated is located on the left side of the map title bar.
It is important to remember that Live Availability and Journeys are two very separate things and they should not be confused with each other. However combining all the information together (location, availability and planned routes) can be used to establish whether a driver may suit your needs
The blue tabs located at the top left of the map allows you to select whether you want the map to display ad hoc (single) registered journeys or regular (repeat) journeys. The all tab displays both
The journey status can be determined by the colour of the pin
Green – the driver has set their journey status to 'Empty Vehicle'
Amber – the driver has set their journey status to 'Co-load possible'. This means that they have already have a load to deliver but have capacity to carry another load
Red – the driver has set their journey status to 'Fully Loaded'. Useful if viewing your own drivers or if you are interested in their availability when they reach their destination
Blue – If two are more journey start points are located within 5 miles of each other (or the current zoom level of the map is too small to show all pins accurately) then their journeys will be displayed as a blue cluster pin.
You can either click on the blue pin to 'un-cluster' the pins or you can zoom in (using the zoom tool on the left or mouse scroll).
Numbers – the numbers in the Green, Amber and Red pins represent the table row number for this driver.
The number in a Blue pin represents how many drivers are clustered together
Info Balloon– if you move your mouse over a pin (not a blue cluster pin) a balloon will appear containing more info about the driver, the journey (including ETA), the vehicle and their contact details.Clicking on the Driver's name will open up their accreditation overlay (full directory listing)
