Access and use the Details pages [MarineTraffic Mobile App]

There are two ways to access the Details page of any asset (vessel, port or lighthouse) which is displayed on the Live Map.

  • tap on the asset's icon on the Live Map to bring out its information box and tap on the information box

  • perform a search using the relevant icon on the Main Toolbar (or bring out a list using the "Lists" option) and tap on the "info" icon next to the name of the asset that interests you

In any case, you will get to the Details page of the subject asset. There you can find all the available information regarding it, view the uploaded photos of the asset and perform various actions related to the asset.

Note that the available options and information vary depending on the type of the asset (vessel, port, lighthouse). 

Let's have a look at the Details page of a vessel:


Photo Gallery 

The default photo of the subject vessel will be shown at the top of the Details page. The number of available photos is shown below.

Tap on the photo to access the Photo Gallery and view all the available photos of the subject vessel. Use the "Display Options" buttons to select the way the available photos will be displayed.

Tap on any photo to view it in full-screen.


Action Buttons

Use the available action buttons to perform the following actions:

  • vessel track: tap on this button to view an animated playback of the subject vessel's track. Tap on the "Play" icon to start the animation, use the slider to fast-forward or rewind it. 

  • show on map: tap on this button to directly locate and view the vessel's position on the Live Map
  • add to fleet: add the vessel to your default fleet. If you want to make any alterations prior to adding the vessel to your fleet, tap on the "3 dots" at the right side of the button to bring out the Fleet Options. 
  • add to new fleet: create a new fleet and add the vessel to it.

Note that if the vessel already belongs to any of your fleets, the available options will be different.

Use the Fleet Status Controls to:
