Dashboard Map

by mauiphill on Mon Feb 10, 2020 4:17 am

Is there any way to clear the location data on a map within the dashboard (gps location)
I do see the option “ Hours of History (0 for realtime)” but it doesn’t clear after the time I put into it.

You could clear the dashboard block's location data by sending 0's in the latitude/longitude/altitude metadata associated with the feed linked to the dashboard block.

Hi brubell,

I tried the method you suggested but it seems not to work.

I inserted some points, then one point with lat = lon = ele = 0, then some more points.

The dashboard keeps showing the old points before the all-zeroes point insertion, see figures...

Am I doing wrong? Any suggestion...?

Many thanks,
