How To Create A Circle Geofence – Milo GPS

What Is A Circle Geofence?

A circle geofence is a virtual fence that can track when an item (vehicle, piece of equipment, or person) crosses the boundary. A circle geofence can be used in a variety of situations. For example, when you need to verify when a vehicle visited a customer. Another good reason is to prevent your drivers from visiting places that are off limits, such as their home, girlfriend/boyfriend’s house, favorite bar, etc.
