QUALCOMM upgraded its GlobalTRACS system with a multiple maintenance profile feature that provides notifications when maintenance is due for various types of service on a piece of equipment. Users can now identify multiple service points scheduled at different intervals rather than receive a generic maintenance notification. Users could receive a notification for an oil change at 500 hours and a brake inspection at 1,000 hours. Also, a new engine-start curfew function provides theft detection by allowing users to define a range of time that an engine can run. They can also establish a time-sensitive electronic boundary around each machine.
