Establishing a Telematics Connection with OneStepGPS.com

On the “Telematics Gateway” page, click “Add Telematics Connection” in the top left corner of the screen.
Next, input the name for the OneStepGPS connection into the corresponding field (i.e., the name of the telematics vendor, etc.).
Then, select “OneStepGPS” from the “Telematics Vendor” drop-down menu.
Next, input your OneStepGPS.com API key into the corresponding field.
After that, define the preferred Vehicle Position Refresh Rate for the OneStepGPS connection in the corresponding field.
The Vehicle Position Refresh Rate is the frequency at which Route4Me’s telematics gateway retrieves vehicle tracking data from the corresponding telematics partner. Most telematics vendors receive and store data between 1 and 5 minutes, while other vendors can capture data at a higher frequency. With Route4Me, you are able to set up the preferred Vehicle Position Refresh Rate and extract the tracking data as quickly as every second.
Finally, check the authorization box at the bottom of the window to agree with Route4Me’s Terms and Use policy and then click “Save” to finish.
Once the OneStepGPS telematics connection is successfully established, it is displayed respectively on the “Telematics Gateway” page. In the “Synced Vehicle Count” column, you can view the percentage of the successfully synchronized OneStepGPS vehicles. To edit the corresponding connection, click on the gear icon next to it and then select the preferred option.
Viewing Your OneStepGPS.com Vehicles in Your Route4Me Account
After successfully establishing the connection with your OneStepGPS.com account, all vehicles are automatically imported and re-synchronized into your Route4Me account. To access your vehicles list, go to the “Team” tab from the navigation menu and then select “Vehicles” respectively.
You can assign your imported vehicles to already planned routes, as well as to the routes that are being planned.
The data received from OneStepGPS.com is automatically associated with the ID numbers of the corresponding vehicles.

To bring up your vehicles’ locations and tracking history on the map, first, click “Tracking“, then hover your mouse cursor over “Route“, and finally, select one of the corresponding timeframes from the list.
When your vehicles are out in the field, their tracking data is captured by OneStepGPS.com and sent to Route4Me where it is evaluated and processed. Then, Route4Me automatically associates the data with the corresponding vehicles and provides all available real-time and historical tracking information in the form of statistics, relevant metrics, and actionable intelligence. For your convenience, vehicles’ icons can be changed to the logos of the corresponding telematics vendors (i.e., when you have integrations with multiple telematics vendors).
NOTE: It may take up to 60 seconds for your OneStepGPS vehicle(s) to appear on the map.
