This application will connect to the Zonar service to retrieve vehicle location data. This data can be used within BusBoss to compare the expected routes from BusBoss with the actual routes from Zonar.


The settings tab allows you to configure the connection to Zonar and BusBoss. You can double click the "<new>" to add a new configuration or double click an existing item to modify it.

When you click the Vehicles button, the application will connect to Zonar and synchronize the vehicles.

When you click the Locations button, vehicle locations are synchronized. If this is the first time synchronizing, the application will retrieve history date from 1 week ago up until current information.

Configure Zonar Connection

This application can accommodate multiple configurations. This allows for multiple customers using the same server and/or multiple zonar accounts for the same customer.


This setting has no bearing on the functionality, it is simply a name you can enter to describe the connection.


If this setting is unchecked, this connection will be ignored during the synchronization process. This is a good way to temporarily disable a zonar synchronization without needing to delete the configuration.
