Welcome to Omnitracs Drive

Drive is designed to make running your trips easier. Drive lets you perform all of your daily tasks, follow your daily workflow, manage your duty status and vehicle inspections, and perform delivery and pickup of orders, using one application.

The main menu in Drive allows you to access a number of different screens.

Note: Depending on settings, some information and features may not be available.

The name and Driver ID of the worker displays at the top of the menu. 

If you use Compliance, a second worker can log into Drive and use the same mobile device as the first worker. Tap Add Co-Driver and enter the additional worker's Driver ID and Password. Tap Sign In. The second worker is added to the worker information at the top of the menu. 

When a co-driver is logged in, a worker can be marked as Primary (P) and/or Active (A).

The person who is driving the equipment and will have an HOS Duty Status of "On Duty Driving" is considered Primary. If the correct worker is not marked as Primary, tap the P associated with the appropriate worker to change the status. This status may change from one worker to the other throughout the trip.

The person who is using the Drive application is considered Active. If the correct worker is not marked as Active, tap the A associated with the appropriate worker to change the status. This status may change from one worker to the other throughout the trip.

Note: The worker who logs into Drive first is listed first at the top of the menu and to whom the trip is assigned. If the first worker logs out, the second worker must re-enter the password to remain logged into Drive.
