Switching or selecting a Vehicle with a preconfigured VBUS device enables the app to find and connect on the match device. Note: On the VBUS Settings, VBUS Data and Automatic Configuration should be enabled LiveViewGPS® HOS Quick Reference Guide Change Status 4 Set your Initial status by selecting the Start option and then select the required status from the drop down list displayed. If the device is out of GPS coverage, the Location field will be blank, you must manually input your current location. If the device is within GPS coverage, the Location field will be automatically populated with your current location. Also, the current status of the app is disabled to prevent adding the same status consecutively. The Time Remaining will be calculated and the countdown will commence from 8 hours, the time remaining panel is color coded in the following formats: Green: Between 8hrs and 3hrs; Amber: Between 3hrs and 1hr; Red: Less than 1hr remaining ➢ Personal Use – if this is enabled, the status will be set to Off Duty automatically and will disable the other checkboxes. Selection of this option will be recorded within the events history. ➢ Off Road – Once checked the other checkboxes will be disabled. Selection of this option will be recorded within the events history. ➢ Yard Moves – if this is enabled, the status will be set to On Duty automatically and will disable the other checkboxes. Selection of this option will be recorded within the events history. Note: all options are enabled in all events Personal Use is mentioned in the FMCSA’s Supplemental Proposal, which was published on March 28, 2014, that mandates ELDs for most drivers of CMVs that currently log. The proposal says that ELDs may be set up to allow drivers to put themselves in a special driving category called “personal use.” When a driver selects this option, the ELD will record the time as off duty until the driver de-selects the option. Off Road, on the other hand, determines that the vehicle is running on rough terrain. Lastly, Yard Moves, has been established under a mandate which allows a driver or another personnel to perform duties like moving trucks around the home yard by establishing a single set of thresholds for all ELDs in an On Duty, not Driving status without triggering the device by reaching the thresholds.

For Vehicle type Equipment For Trailer type Equipment In the Equipment Management, a Vehicle type equipment can be preconfigured to associate to a specific VBUS device. Once the VBUS Configuration is turned on, it automatically connects the app to the device when the Vehicle is selected. However, if no device was selected during the creation of the equipment, the default selected device option is set to “None” and all the other fields on the ELD configuration section will be hidden. NOTE: If user selects “Digi WVA” in connection type, then admin password field is required.

The driver can also enabled to cancel an in-progress connection via the OK and Stop Connection button found in the VBUS Progress dialog. If the app attempts to connect to an unsupported device, the app then displays a dialog which warns the user that the equipment has an invalid VBUS device type set and that the default device type is being used. The ‘Device Not Supported’ dialog will be displayed stating: “Device is no longer supported. Please use manual connection." along with a Cancel and Manual Connection buttons. When a driver performs a manual connection, the app remembers the VBUS device that he connected to and automatically connects to that VBUS device in the future. On the Bluetooth menu, when the driver is doing a manual connection, the available Bluetooth devices are displayed and can be sorted either in decreasing signal strength (RSSI) or name. • Enable the VBUS Data by tapping on the Connect button which will then display a dialog showing the list of available devices. Tap on the device name to display the Connect dialog and established a connection to the device. After the connection is made the ELD Login Dialogs will be displayed For manual connection to VBUS Device, after tapping “Connect” or the connect VBUS icon, tap the “Manual Connection”. A list of supported VBUS devices will then display. After selecting a VBUS device, tap the available connection then wait for a minute, then you will be connected. To configure VBUS Device, tap Scan QR Code, then scan the QR Code of the device. o After scan, type the device name.

Once tapped, a selection of the supported data transfer options by the ELD will prompt to the user. The ELD can also produce a data file or a series of data files of ELD records for a subset of its vehicles used by the driver through the ‘Switch Equipment’ option. Tap on the menu to show the list of vehicles. Note: ‘All Vehicles’ option will only display on the list when the driver has already driven multiple vehicles for the day. After selecting a data transfer option, the ELD prompts for an output file comment which the driver may enter (optional). The ELD accommodates the entry of an output file comment up to 60 characters long. Log Off 13 Log Off Select the icon to log out of the LiveViewGPS HOS app. If you have not set your status to ‘Off Duty’, it will automatically change this for you. If the driver did not certify all the daily logs, the ELD prompts the driver upon logging in and out to the app when there’s a past recorded log that are not yet certified. However, If the Driver is an Exempt Driver or a driver that operates under the short-haul exemption (395.1 (e)), upon logging out a dialog will display again confirming whether the driver chooses to continue as an exempt driver. If the driver logs out from the HOS app and the vehicle is put into motion for more than 3 minutes, Unidentified Driving Events are automatically created under the Unidentified Driver account. When an Authenticated Driver logs into the HOS app, these events can then be accepted by the driver or be left in the Unidentified Driver account. Lastly, once the “Logout” button is tapped, the valid driver that logged into the HOS app will be logged out and the HOS app will be close completely (with no LiveViewGPS service or VBUS service running in the background).
