Simplified workflow to annotate Duty Status Logs
Previously, drivers had to complete a series of steps before they could annotate a Duty Status log. Now, drivers are prompted to add an annotation as soon as a log is created. After adding an annotation, the App returns to the HOS screen and displays a message prompting the driver to view the last annotated log.

Driver automatically unassigned from a vehicle when not in proximity
When out of proximity to the assigned vehicle, the App prompts the driver to choose whether to remain assigned to the vehicle, or to be unassigned from the vehicle, and change status to duty. The range is determined using the GPS on the vehicle, and the GPS on the mobile device that runs the app.

Information in Compliance Print
When a driver enters Inspection Mode but is not assigned to a vehicle, the app uses information from the previously assigned vehicle to populate the odometer, engine hours and other vehicle-related data.

Added clarification message on ELD Transfer 
A message has been added to ELD Transfer in the app to clarify that transfer to Transport Canada Officers is not supported.

Improvement to Compliance Print
The following improvements have been made to the Compliance Print feature in the app:

  • Changed “Truck/Tractor” to “Truck/Tractor ID”.
  • Changed “VIN” to “Truck/Tractor VIN”.
  • Added License Plate and License Plate State.

Changes to Personal Conveyance (PC) Limits
If a maximum allowed PC distance is configured, this maximum distance will now be displayed in the app. After this daily limit is exceeded, the PC button is greyed out until the next day.

Improvements to the Canada HOS off duty status
The Canadian HOS off duty calculations have been improved! Here’s how it works:

The driver starts the day at midnight, takes a break at noon for one hour and 50 minutes, works until 3:50 pm when the duty time runs out, then changes the status to Sleeper Berth (SB) for 8 hr 10 minutes.

In this case, there are no violations. The two-hour break requirement is fulfilled by the first break taken at noon (one hour and 50 minutes), followed by the first 10 minutes of the SB status. Since both breaks are greater than 30 minutes, the off duty time can be combined to meet the break requirements.

Below is a preview of new features and improvements that were included in the 1904 release.

1904 Release


Show Password feature is now available at Log in
To improve usability on small screens, users now have the option to view their typed password. From the login screen on the app, just click or tap the eye symbol in the Password field.

New limit on trailer attachments
The number of trailers that can be attached in the app has been limited to four (4). If a user tries to add more than four trailers, an error message displays. This measure will support trailer management and accuracy. If you have more than four trailers attached, you will have to remove the surplus attachments before adding more.

Improved flexibility for adding manual HOS logs
The number of days in which manual logs can be added to the app has increased from 10 days to 14 days. Since drivers can view logs for up to twice their cycle period, drivers on a 60 hours/7 Day ruleset are no longer limited to viewing logs for the past 10 days. They can now view their logs for the past two cycles, for a total of 14 days. For Canadian rulesets, the number of days is 28.

Canadian HOS start of day workflow update
For better usability, Canadian drivers are now prompted to choose a new start of day time after resetting their cycle. The time set by default

Updated legal attestations for Canadian DVIRs
The legal attestations for Canadian DVIRs have been updated to correspond to their respective provinces. For drivers in Canadian Provinces, the following legal attestations must be acknowledged when signing current DVIRs, as well as reviewing previous DVIRs. The location on the DVIR log is used to determine which Provincial attestation to display on the DVIR.:

  • Alberta: “I declare that the vehicle shown above has been inspected in accordance with the requirements set forth in the Alberta Regulation 121/2009”
  • Manitoba: “I declare that the vehicle shown above has been inspected in accordance with the applicable requirements of XXX” where XXX is the schedule of defects used or the name of the defects list.
  • Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan: “I declare that the vehicle shown above has been inspected in accordance with applicable requirements”
  • Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, British Columbia: “I declare that the vehicle shown above has been inspected in accordance with the requirements set forth in the Canadian Federal NSC Standard 13”

When no defects are logged on a DVIR in Canada, the screen displays the following confirmation: “No Major or Minor defects found”.
