How do I add vehicles if I have a GM Fleet Account Number (FAN)?
Why didn't I receive my activation email?
If you didn't receive your activation email, check your spam or junk folders. The email will come from email@example.com. If it's not there, please call an Advisor at (833) 266-6565 for assistance.
Why can't the system read the VIN file I'm trying to upload?
If you're having trouble uploading a VIN file, make sure you're using a .csv file. You can also type your VINs manually or copy and paste from your existing list. If you have additional questions, please call an advisor at (833) 266-6565 for assistance.
I don't have access to the email address originally associated with my VIN. Is there another way to onboard the vehicle?
To onboard a vehicle, we must verify that you own the vehicle or are authorized to onboard the vehicle. If you can't complete this verification by email, please call an Advisor at (833) 266-6565 for assistance.
What do I do if I receive a “Configuration” error?
I onboarded a vehicle, but the status still says, "Waiting for Ignition." Do I need to do something to complete the process?
"Waiting for Ignition" means our system is waiting to talk to the vehicle. All you need to do is turn on the ignition of that vehicle for a moment. In some cases, it may take up to 48 hours for the configuration to complete. If you are still receiving this message after 48 hours, please call an Advisor at (833) 266-6565 for assistance.
When onboarding, why am I asked to send a verification to my email address?
Some vehicles with active connectivity hardware are not immediately verified by the system. This is often because the VIN is associated with a different email address. You will need to follow the verification steps to get this vehicle connected properly.
Why is my vehicle considered “non-compatible” during onboarding?
Most likely it’s because your vehicle is not equipped with active connectivity hardware. This vehicle will require manual entry of information and may not qualify for all services within the tool.
I'm having an issue onboarding my vehicles not stated above, what do I do?
How do I add a manager?
Select the managers tab and click the + icon. Enter your manager's email address and they will receive an email with instructions to create their account.
When I set up a notification, will the vehicle driver/fleet manager also receive the same notification?

What is a tag?
Tags help you group and organize your vehicles (e.g., "service" or "delivery"), and can even be used to group vehicles in different sub-fleets with the same tag.
What is a vehicle label?

How do you determine what a “trip” is?
