Change Status
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.
Select the Vehicle DVIR button from the Main Menu, select the appropriate DVIR form from the options available, confirm
all of the checks as passed, failed or not applicable, then select the Finish DVIR to submit.
