Last weekend, on the 10th July, a software update of the Satellic tolling system was installed. This update offers you some new interesting functionalities like journey visualisation for free. Based upon the request of our business partners, federations and road users, following functionalities are available as of now:
Satellic offers its customers journey visualization for free. The road user has to enable this feature on the road user portal, per vehicle, to be able to use this feature in the future.
Journey visualization offers a deeper insight in the journey driven by your trucks. You can view where a specific truck has been driving on any given day. The journey is shown on an interactive map.
Moreover the raw position data can be viewed, downloaded and deleted. With the KML file you can import the data in your own geolocalisation tool.
The position of the vehicle in Belgium is registered every 30 seconds and sent in bulk every 5 minutes by the OBU to the system. The journey information is always showed per 24 hours.
Satellic has made the (de)couple process of an OBU from/to a vehicle easier. From now on, it is no longer necessary to switch on the OBU for the (de)coupling to take place. You can (de)couple your vehicle on the RUP or at a Service Point at your best convenience.
If you are already an existing customer of one of the following business partners (Colsea / Dats 24 / Febetra / Gabriëls / Maes / Octa+ / Power Oil / TLV / ZPMD) you will be able, as of now, to directly choose this Satellic business partner as a payment method. This function will also be made available at Satellic Service Points, during the second half of this month. When you order a new OBU, you can just pick your Satellic business partner in the menu. If you want to change the payment method linked to your OBU, this can easily be done on the Road User Portal.
Satellic is implementing a “Switch On OBU” reminder. Thanks to this feature you will be reminded by a flashing display and continuous beeping to switch on the OBU by pushing the ON button (V) whenever you start your journey. The feature will be visible only on OBUs not installed with the 3 wires fixed installation.
Reimbursement of deposit and prepaid-balance will happen in an automated way as of now. This implies that you will be reimbursed faster. We will also include the OBU-ID in the reference of the reimbursement for your convenience and easier accounting follow-up. Mind that you absolutely need to fill in your IBAN bank account number on the RUP or Service Point in order to be able to get your refund.
