If you are experiencing issues with your Summit Innovations products or services, please try some of these troubleshooting solutions for common issues. Alternatively, please submit a support request regarding any issues you are experiencing via our support portal.

Driveway Loops

Driveway Loops
A loop is a series of cabling that is placed under the concrete and in front of service points (e.g. order, cash, pick-up). The loops serve as a metal detector and is the key component in making the timer work and tracking events associated with each vehicle.

Ranking Screen

Why is my ranking screen is not showing other stores?

After an installation your store will be added to a Summit Ranking server within 24 hours. After this time, you will see other stores.

Reasons for not seeing other stores may be due to the store network connection, please submit a support ticket to Summit Innovations if you are still not seeing other stores on your ranking screen after 48 hours of the installation.

You will appear on the ranking screen after you have served your first car for the morning, the driveway loops must be triggered by a vehicle.
The ranking screen data is based on the rolling hour; therefore, if you do not serve a vehicle in that hour it will drop off intermittently until a car has been served. This is likely to occur during slower trade periods.
The blue timer screen is displaying data for a daypart which can span from a 2 to 3-hour window. The ranking screen is displaying hourly data (left side) and total for the day (right side).

Timing Screen

Why does my timer screen still show the previous night’s data?
The info from the previous day will reset once your first car has been completed for the day.
At the end of each daypart, your timer screen will reset and re-commence on the new daypart. For example, at 11am/2pm/5pm.
A car is activated by the loop which is under the ground in the driveway. A car can disappear for many reasons, such as loop sensitivity being too high or low, a car leaving the driveway after crossing only one loop (e.g. if there is an escape route by chance). If this is occurring too frequently without an explanation to that particular event, please submit a support ticket to Summit Innovations for further investigation.

The vehicle type could be too high to pick up the loop induction – this can occur with very high 4WDs, or a motorcycle may not trigger the loop. If this is happening frequently without explanation Summit can adjust and test the sensitivity of the loops. Please submit a support ticket if this is occurring frequently.

A ghost car is a car that has appeared on your timer screen but doesn’t exist.

Essentially, one of the driveway loops have been triggered. This could be caused by a car entering the drive-thru then reversing out or the loop itself may require an adjustment. A car that appears to be stuck on your timer screen (ghost car) will delete itself after 10 minutes and will not affect your results.If ghost cars appear too frequently, please provide a working log on the following and submit a ticket:

  • Where the ghost car is appearing (i.e. between which two points)
  • What time of the day the issue is occurring (i.e. throughout the day or only during rush hours)
  • What type of cars are creating ghost car issues (i.e. small cars, four-wheel drives or cars with trailers)
Double triggers can occur on a loop. Examples of this might be a vehicle towing a trailer, or a car that drives across a loop and then reverses back onto it (e.g. they forgot to stop at the order point).
Check power (monitors and GPO). If power is on and there appears to be no other explanation then please submit a support ticket for investigation.
Please submit a support ticket for a technician to adjust.
Unfortunately, Summit is unable to change service goals. They are pre-determined by your brand. Please speak to your brand consultant to discuss, otherwise Summit can assist in operational training to improve results.
If the timer screen is not visible and is displaying desktop screen or Summit logo, your SQSRM software is not loading. Please contact the Summit Help Desk.

Audio Alerts

The timer audio alerts are too low/too high, can I adjust these?
The info from the previous day will reset once your first car has been completed for the day.
Yes, you can. Please speak to your brand Area Manager/Field Consultant for approval then we can adjust.

Please check if both alerts are working:

  • Alert when car entering drive thru
  • Alert when car goes over the target time

If one alert is working and other is not, this could be a programming issue or loop detection issue, please contact the Help Desk. If both alerts are not working, this could be a hardware issue which requires site assistance.

COD / Speaker Post

What do I do if the COD screen is not displaying marketing slides?
Submit a support ticket. We can check remotely that they are uploaded but most times there may be a small hardware component that may have failed which may require an on-site visit.

Check that the POS is communicating with the COD. Each brand has different ways to enable this. Some brands need to claim control of the COD via the POS every morning, some brands claim control automatically through commencing an order. Other reasons could be a local network drop out or a staff member not entering the order into the register at the time of the order being placed.

An idle deletion of a car occurs when a car has not reached a secondary driveway loop. For example, when a car orders and drives off the order loop the expectation of the timing system is that this car will arrive at the next service point (triggering that loop) within a certain time frame. Failure to do so, will delete the car off the system.

Generally, a network issue may have caused this. The loops trigger the car, which flows to the timer, which flows to the reports. If there is no data coming through, checking the network is the first step. The car data is not lost, we can re-load back into the reporting portal once the network has been re-established. The only reason it may not would be a loop error.

Submit a support request so a technician can determine the cause.


What do I do if the headset battery charger is not charging?
Gently blow on the connectors of the battery and the charger to remove any dust particles or debris. Try a different charging socket. If all sockets have failed check power, or try plugging into a different GPO. Solution may either be a new charger or a new power supply which can be purchased separately for some chargers. Contact Summit through a support ticket first and they will be able to determine what you need after troubleshooting the above.
