Unit is a vehicle, machine, person, pet or any other moving or stationary object that can be controlled
with the help of a GPS tracking system.
To work with units, open the Units panel, choosing a corresponding name in the top panel or clicking on
the necessary item in the main menu customizer. Here you can see the list of units available to the
current user. Displayed are the units available for tracking on the Monitoring panel.
On the 'Units' panel you can create (create from WLP), view, copy, edit, delete units, import/export their
properties, and send SMS messages to them.
On the list, units are displayed in the alphabetical order. Besides, every unit has its own icon. To quickly
find a necessary unit, apply the dynamic filter. Place a mouse cursor over unit to display its details in a tooltip: type, ID(s), phone number(s). This information is given only to users who have the access right

Use the following buttons against each unit to perform standard actions over it:
- — Send SMS to unit's SIM card. It can be a command or other type of message. SMS buttons
are not displayed if this feature is not activated for the current user. If the button is dimmed, it
means there is no phone number in unit properties or the current user has not enough rights to
the unit. If two phone numbers are given in unit properties, choose one of them when the
dialog of SMS sending opens. More about sending SMS messages…
