Some organizations use both Navigation Global Edition (Navigation GE) and Navigation North America (NavNA, formerly NaviGo) to meet their navigation requirements. To support consistent routing behavior and to generate more efficient routes for these organizations, synchronization of road edits (from Navigation GE) to their associated modifiers in NavNA can be enabled. This eliminates the need for administrators to make data entries on both platforms.
This article describes how Fleet road edits are synchronized to their corresponding NavNA modifiers.
Road edits and modifiers are temporary changes of the map when the map data is out of date, absent, or otherwise inaccurate. Road edits and modifiers can do the following:
Before synchronization can occur, Verizon Connect engineering staff perform an initial step of importing the current NavNA road modifiers into Fleet and then enable synchronization. Once enabled, the synchronization process periodically and automatically copies road edits saved in Fleet to a matching entry in the Navigation Portal road modifier system. This process synchronizes both new road edits to new modifiers and existing road edits to their existing modifiers.
This synchronization process is one-way only (that is, Fleet to NavNA), and modifiers cannot be synced from NavNA to Fleet road edits. Because of this, you should enter data into the road edits system in Fleet, instead of the NavNA modifiers system, wherever possible.
Creating Road Edits and Modifiers
Road edits are created in Fleet > Map > Road Edits . For information on how to create road edits, see Road Editor Overview.
Modifiers are created in Navigation Portal > Road Manager > New Modifier. For information on how to create modifiers, see Creating New Modifiers (Navigation Portal). Note that any additions you make to the list of modifiers are not synced to Fleet.
Mapping Road Edits to Modifiers
In many cases, if the modifier effect is a restriction or limitation, it can be entered as a road edit.
However, not all Road Manager modifier categories are supported by road edits in Fleet.
The following table shows how the road edit attributes in Fleet are related to the Road Manager modifiers in Navigation Portal. The modifier categories that do not have a corresponding road edit attribute are indicated in the “Notes'' column.
|Road Manager Category||Road Edit Attribute||Notes|
|Height restriction||Height limit|
|Length restriction (all types)||Length limit|
|Weight restriction||Weight limit|
|Width restriction (all types)||Width limit|
|Per-axle weight restriction||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Turn-restricted||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Data error - no through traffic||Road Status = Closed|
|Data error - directionality||Road Status = Closed|
|Data error (all other types)||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Trucks prohibited (all types)||Truck Behavior = Prohibited|
|No trucks (all types)||Truck Behavior = Prohibited|
|No trailers||Truck Behavior = Prohibited|
|Truck network [FAV]||Truck Behavior = Preferred|
|Turn restricted||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|DOT mandated detour||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Avoid residential area||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Hazmat (all types)||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Closed for construction||Road Status = Closed|
|Avoid construction||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Detour [FAV]||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Seasonal (all types)||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Weather (all types)||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
|Preference and Safety Restrictions|
|All types||Not applicable||Not supported by Road Edits|
Synchronizing Road Edits to Modifiers
To enable synchronization, contact your Verizon Connect support representative.
Once enabled, the road edits from Fleet are automatically synchronized to the matching modifiers in Navigation Portal. This process takes place every five minutes. You can recognize these modifiers in Road Manager, as they have the name "Imported from Road Edits".
If you make any changes to these modifiers in Road Manager, your changes are overwritten during the next synchronization cycle. For this reason, we recommend that you make changes to the road edits in Fleet, and avoid editing the modifiers in Navigation Portal.
Viewing Synchronized Modifiers
Modifiers that have been synced from road edits are given the default name of “Imported from Road Edits”, and you can view them in Road Manager. For more information, see Searching for Modifiers in the Navigation Portal help.
