Current problem communicating with device/engine, follow steps below:


Click Menu button in top right corner, select Scan Devices

Ensure your ignition is turned on

Find your device in the list with the matching 10 digit ESN serial number and select. Once connected, click "Test", the tablet will run through its diagnostics to read parameters from the engine.

There are 2 ways for the Logs to be edited:

Automatic switch to Driving changes (using location services): 

We have added a new feature in version 109 (requested mainly by carriers) to   automaticallyswitch drivers to Driving mode using the device’s location service (GPS, cellularnetwork, etc.). This new feature will prevent drivers from using the ELD device(tablet, phone) for personal purposes. There was an issue that Drivers were not logging out of the HoS app and were automatically switched to Driving mode during periods of time theywere not working for the carrier.

With version 111, a new toggle function was added to the main screen to let the driver select if they want to use location services or not. By default this option is toggled off driver can enable it during regular working hours so Driving time isadded properly without having to create new Driving records later on. Oncethe driver is done for the cycle and wants to bring the device (phone/tablet)with him during OFF duty time, they can switch location services off to avoidautomatic switch to Driving.


Automatic switching to Driving mode now works as:

Single driver logged in the app: If ECM is available, once the vehiclestarts moving the driver is automatically switched to Driving mode after thevehicle moves 1 mile. The driver is not notified and is switched toDriving mode after the 1 mile. If ECM data is not available, the app will usethe new location service toggle. If location service is enabled thedriver is switched to Driving after the vehicle moves 1 mile. If locationservice is turned off, (and ECM data is not available) the driver will notbe switched to Driving mode.

Team drivers: Automatic switch to Driving mode only takes place if ECMdata is available. Location service, just by itself, is not used. Once theapp detects vehicle movement, a pop-up is shown to let drivers pickwho is driving. The selected driver is switched to Driving mode after the vehicle moves 1 mile.

Unidentified driving: Only uses ECM data and location services is not used at all.

Icon color will change

Gray = Only using GPS tracker

Pink = Using mobile device location services
