Arrive by GPSLast updated on 08/29/2022

Dispatched technicians with GPS-enabled devices are automatically arrived when they are within 125 meters of the job service location. This ensures an accurate account of time working on a job.

Things to know

  • GPS is accurate within 3-10 meters. If GPS is unavailable, cellular triangulation is used which is accurate within 500 meters, or about 1/3 of a mile.

  • If GPS is not working properly, technicians can also manually arrive themselves.

Enable a GPS device

This feature is enabled by default. Make sure that your technicians have a GPS device assigned to them:

  • Enable native GPS to use the GPS on the device with ServiceTitan Mobile installed.

  • Add a GPS provider if a technician uses a separate GPS device, for example, TomTom or Fleetmatics.

When a dispatched technician is within 125 meters of the job service location, they are automatically arrived.

Note: Technicians can also manually arrive themselves by tapping ARRIVE on the job screen.
