New Feature Details:


Added unit status color support

For enterprise customers that have 2 Way CAD integration, units on the map may now be displayed as a color that reflects current status. This feature requires configuration by a Tablet Command administrator using the web administrator console.

Notification settings


Added notification settings notes that unit and incident type are independent of each other.  This clarifies that users can independently choose what units and what incident types they would like to be notified for.  For example if your assigned engine is E1 you can choose to receive notifications every time that piece of apparatus is dispatched.  You could separately choose the incident types you wish to receive notifications for. You will receive a notification for ANY incident of this type regardless of if you chose to be notified for unit(s).

AppSupportDatabaseiPhoneX-1 Added send logs and database to settings

TC Mobile users can now send logs and the TC Mobile database to Tablet Command support from the settings screen.

Added support for Waze


Users requested support for Waze for turn by turn navigation and Tablet Command has added this option. To enable Waze Navigation, you must install Waze for iOS on the device. Once installed, tap the configuration cog in the lower left corner of the application, select "Navigation", then choose "Waze". This will make Waze the default navigation application application for Tablet Command.

Added Disable Dimming

Now, as Pro user, you can run TC Mobile without iOS going to sleep or locking the device.  Please use caution as this can significantly reduce battery life.

As a reminder, we support integration with the following navigation applications, Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, and Foreflight Mobile ( for our aviation customers using Tablet Command to respond to incidents.
