Cruise control switched ON/OFF

Please note, as this rule type is a hardware-based one, the rule can track only certain tracker models.


Receiving notifications about enabling or disabling the Cruise Control feature in a vehicle can be useful for various purposes related to monitoring and controlling the vehicle's performance. Here are some potential benefits of receiving notifications for this event:

  • Fuel Efficiency Monitoring: Cruise Control helps maintain a steady speed, which can contribute to fuel efficiency. By receiving notifications when Cruise Control is enabled or disabled, users can track how often they utilize this feature and assess its impact on fuel consumption.
  • Battery Management: In the case of electric or hybrid vehicles, Cruise Control usage can affect battery life and range. Notifications about enabling or disabling Cruise Control allow users to monitor its impact on battery usage, helping them manage and optimize their vehicle's electric power.
  • Driving Behavior Analysis: Tracking Cruise Control usage patterns can provide insights into a driver's behaviour. By receiving notifications, users can gather data on when and where they engage Cruise Control, aiding in analyzing driving habits and potentially identifying opportunities for improvement, such as excessive usage or underutilization.
  • Performance Evaluation: Notifications regarding Cruise Control enable/disable events can be valuable for evaluating a vehicle's overall performance. Users can compare the usage of Cruise Control with other driving modes or track its efficiency across different routes or driving conditions, contributing to a comprehensive assessment of the vehicle's capabilities.
  • Safety and Comfort: Cruise Control offers convenience and can contribute to safer driving experiences on long journeys. By receiving notifications, users can easily verify whether Cruise Control is active or not, ensuring they are utilizing this feature when desired and adjusting their driving style accordingly.

These are just a few examples of how receiving notifications about enabling or disabling the Cruise Control feature can be beneficial. The specific advantages may vary depending on the vehicle's make, model, and additional functionality.


As this rule is based on hardware configuration, there is not much to configure in the rule itself.


Fill out the section if the rule needs to work only inside/outside of the selected geofences.

Bind zone to rule:

Enables geofence rule binding.

Map button:

Shows bound geofences on the map.

The platform specifics

  • The "Cruise control switched ON/OFF" alert has a 10-minute reset timer, meaning the alert event will not occur more often than once every 10 minutes. If this type of event occurs in time the rule has been waiting for the reset, this event will be omitted by the platform, including the reports.
  • In this rule type, users have the flexibility to select multiple trackers which they wish to receive notifications from. The only requirement is that the selected trackers must support Cruise control switched ON/OFF events and the feature must be integrated on the platform for given trackers. This means that users can choose multiple compatible trackers to receive notifications from, allowing them to monitor harsh driving events across various vehicles or devices in a convenient way.
  • Whenever the platform identifies a hardware event of this type from a packet of tracker data with no valid coordinates in it, the platform counts the event as a valid one and displays it regardless of whether the event occurred within or outside the bound geofences. The logic of the Inside/Outside radio buttons is also ignored in this case. This behaviour is due to the fact that showing a controversial event once more is better than omitting it.


Emergency notification:

is used for important events. A message on the screen and the sound signal can only be disabled by clicking on the notification. Please note, some browsers can block notification sound until user activity is recorded on the page.

Push notifications:

Receive push notifications on the mobile app and web interface.

Add geofence name to the notification:

Adds names of the specified geofences to the notification text. This option is available only when the "Inside" geofence binding radio button is selected on the "Settings" tab.

SMS notifications:

List of recipients for SMS notifications when the event occurs.

Email notifications:

List of recipients for email notifications when the event occurs.


Set a schedule for when the rule will run. If your schedule indicates that the event should not run some day or time period, it will not appear as a notification in the user interface, and notifications via SMS or email will not be sent. Additionally, you can choose a default template for quick scheduling.
