2012-2014 Ford Focus TSB Issue – IMPORTANT

Geotab has recently become aware of a Ford Focus Service Bulletin affecting all 2012 – 2014 Ford Focus’s. The bulletin indicates that there is the potential in these vehicles for the CAN circuit located on the underside of the front passenger seat to short to ground. This issue can cause erratic behavior to occur inside the vehicle. Possible symptoms include engine warning lights to appear on the dash, loss of power steering/brakes, failure to start the vehicle, and the potential to stall the vehicle while moving. We have seen that the likelihood of these symptoms occurring is higher with a GO6 device installed.

Geotab strongly recommends that any customer using a GO6 device in a 2012 – 2014 Ford Focus have the vehicle serviced under the TSB Reference #ASI-44460 before continuing to use the GO device in the vehicle.

More information on this issue is available here: http://www.fordproblems.com/tsbs/Focus/2014/

NHTSA Reference #10055324, TSB Reference #ASI-44460

Geotab Reports Google Maps Issue: Inability to use ”left-click” functions

The Geotab software development team is aware of an issue regarding the inability to use “left-click” functions on the MyGeotab Live Map when using the Google Maps map type. This inhibits the ability to create zones, update posted road speed, find addresses, etc. Until a fix is released, we recommend using a different map provider, such as OSM or Bing, for related tasks.

To change your default map from within Fleetistics>MyGeotab>System>System Settings>Maps. If you need assistance with this process please contact Fleetistics support. An update will be posted when Geotab publishes a fix. Thank you for your understanding.

New Feature: Continue Tracking “Historic” Devices

Previously, if the device for a vehicle was made “Historic,” a new device needed to be assigned to that vehicle and there would be essentially two device records for that vehicle; one showing all data before the replacement, and one showing all data recorded afterwards. With this new feature, the vehicle can be assigned a new device without having to create a new record. The result is that there will be little to no break in the GPS data for that vehicle, even though it’s using a new device.
