Points of Interest app

basic1-125_information Points of Interest (or POIs) are specific locations on the map.
We use POIs to alert you when your trackers enter or exit an area.

If you group nearby POIs together, you can paint an area on the map, which now has a “virtual fence”. This feature is also called a “geofence” or “geofencing”.

POIs are widely used to mark important and useful locations on the map, such as gas stations, parking lots, transit stations, coffee shops and pharmacies.
