Mobile devices take location data from the GPS while desktop devices calculate the location data from A-GPS (Assisted GPS), making it ideal for tracking users simply from their browser. A-GPS works with WiFi triangulation and requires any desktop PC or laptop connected to a WiFi).

These are for quickly navigating to a location or quickly dialling a contact respectively. Additionally, both windows feature a search bar on the top giving the driver the ability to search for any locations and contacts within the system. These are managed from the Roadness platform, giving basic CRM information to drivers.

The drivers can confirm the schedule from the mobile application or see the red dot which means they are not being tracked at the moment.

The delay depends on two factors. The first being the delay the location is submitted from the mobile application (120 seconds for Free version, 30 seconds for Basic, 10 seconds for Premium). The second factor is the delay the data is transmitted from the device over cellular data together with the delay the location marker is shown on the map. This delay is usually no more than 6 seconds.
