Frequently Asked Questions about Fleet
Thanks for visiting! We are more than happy to answer your questions directly, please feel free to contact us or continue reading below.
How do I scan?
Simply hold your device over the barcode. Your device will automatically focus itself, scan, and capture the VIN.
Rectangular Linear Barcodes:
Make sure the whole barcode is visible on the screen, and align the red guideline across the middle of the barcode. If you’re having difficulty capturing the VIN, we recommend using a slow sweeping motion over the barcode, or slowly moving the mobile device closer and further away to get the optimal scanning angle across the full barcode.
Square Data Matrix or QR VIN Barcodes:
Center the barcode within the red square guidelines on the scan screen so that the whole barcode is inside the square. If you’re having difficulty capturing the VIN, we recommend turning the phone vertically, as well as slowly moving the mobile device closer and further away to get the optimal scanning angle within the square.
Please note that Fleet only captures QR codes encoded with a 17-digit VIN. General QR codes will not scan.
If there is low-light, we suggest turning on the light using the flashlight icon in the top left of the scan screen.
If the barcode fails to scan, please send a photo of said barcode to pixoVIN@pixotech.com.
If a barcode is not present, you may enter the VIN manually by tapping the keyboard icon at the top right of the scan screen.
How many custom fields can I add?
You can add up to 12 custom fields. You can edit these fields from your account at any time.
How can I add dropdown values to my custom fields?
Improve the efficiency and consistency of your Fleet subscription by including dropdown values for your custom fields. Dropdowns will save you and your team many hours of typing in content, prevent typos, and keep entries consistent across vehicles.
Here is an example of dropdown values for a vehicle’s custom field called “Color”:
If you’d like dropdown values setup for some or all of your custom fields send the field name and dropdown options you would like to pixoVIN@pixotech.com.
How do I export more than one scan?
To export or delete a group of scans, go to the My Scans tab and choose Select in the upper right-hand corner. You will then be able to select the vehicle scans and details you wish to export.
Where do I submit technical questions?
