feature Details

    • Configurable volume
  • Configure alerts for On Duty and Off Duty
    • TC Mobile only users by default can select On Duty and Off Duty and configure alerts for both
    • Pro users can be configured to allow the On Duty and Off Duty switch and configure alerts for both

Map Hazard Enhancements


The Map Hazard and Command post Pop Overs now include Navigate to and the lat long which can be copied so you can easily share it with other resources.

Mobile Map Packages


In addition to Offline Map areas, we now support Mobile Map Packages (MMPK's). MMPK’s are the best Offline map option because the dynamic feature services like Cameras still work if you are online, and you get the entire basemap, not just the offline area. You also do not have to pick the offline map to use when offline, you just download and pick the MMPK and the SDK handles the rest! Let us know if we can help you or your GIS team implement Mobile Map Packages for your organization.

Improved Manage Incident Workflow/UI


To simplify the workflow and have more consistency between the incident detail screens, we added the Manage Button to all incident screens and replaced the Checklist button which only worked if the incident was managed.  Once the incident is managed a Template button is displayed, and then that changes to a Checklist button once a Template is selected.  The managed by, Incident not managed and Incident closed messages were all moved to display under the Par Indicator.


This is a phased release over the next 15 days.  You can also update Tablet Command manually from the App Store to enjoy the new features today.
