5. Configure the condition/s that will set the IconSet. In our example, we use SOS signal. When SOS is true, the icon will become red on the vehicle marker.

6. Edit the vehicle/user properties > Marker and set the new Status indicator as the new IconSet created on the previous step.

Note from the following image, that the Position Marker of the vehicle is set to Motion where only the Status Indicator is set to the new IconSet.

As a result and according to our example setup, when SOS is true, we will see:

Status indicator vs Position Marker

Note the difference between the different elements of this configuration:

  • Label color: shows on the left side of the marker label
  • Label icon: shows on the left side of the marker label (1)
  • Status indicator(s): displays to the right of the label text (2)
  • Position marker: displays the current vehicle location (3).

By default, the position marker uses the motion icon set to show whether the vehicle is moving, idling, parked, or offline.

You can also customize the marker attributes that display when you click on the marker label. For more information, visit the marker attributes article.
