Frequently asked questions

Trip Tracking

What does trip tracking do?

You can use our industry-leading SDK to build experiences for curbside and in-store pickup, delivery tracking, and more. See our trip tracking documentation for more information.

How does trip tracking work?

First, import geofences for your locations.

Second, integrate the Radar SDK into your app or website. When a customer places an order or taps "I'm on my way," start tracking and start a trip with an ID, a destination geofence, a travel mode, and custom metadata (e.g., customer name, car model, or license plate) depending on your use case.

Third, display live ETAs on the trip tracking dashboard, available on the Enterprise plan. Or, display live ETAs in your own UI.

Does Radar offer an employee-facing trip tracking dashboard?

Yes. The Radar trip tracking dashboard displays active trips for a specific destination geofence, including ID, custom metadata, and ETA.

Does Radar offer a customer-facing trip tracking app?

No. You must integrate the Radar SDK into your app or website.
