Device module

In this note we will teach you step by step how to use the Devices module. You will learn how to add, modify or delete a GPS device on the DeltaTracking platform. We will also tell you how to create a group of devices, modify it or delete it. 

You should know that our platform is characterized by being intuitive and friendly to use. Therefore, managing your GPS units is quite simple. You can do it in an orderly way and 

classify them by groups, highlighting those that are most relevant. 

We currently work with more than 200 communication protocols that use more than 1000 models of GPS devices. 

Only those who have the Administrator role can see, create, modify and delete devices. For his part, the Moderator, can only see and / or modify them.
