New Features and Enhancements
The following new features and enhancements are included in this release.
- To provide drivers with the ability to certify an entire status all at once, a pop-up window now opens for any status that spans multiple days. The message reminds drivers that they are certifying a duty status that spans more than one day, tells them the date range of the status, and asks them if they would like to certify this status. Drivers can select Agree to certify the status or Not Ready to return to the original screen.
- When drivers transfer eRODS files, they now receive a message letting them know their records will be sent to the FMCSA.
- U.S. and Canadian city lists have been updated to include all minor civil division (MCD) types.
- Drivers are now allowed to accept an Unassigned Driving Event as Personal Conveyance or Yard Move if they are enabled to use them in the company settings.
- Drivers can now use Yard Move while they are in Canada.
- The mobile now ends Driving status and triggers the end of the trip immediately when the ignition is turned off. This prevents the driver from getting stuck in Driving status if the system loses power.
- The device now automatically detects a 500KB vs. 250KB Canadian data bus. Prior to this release, 500KB users needed to use version 1819 of the firmware. Now 500KB and 250KB users use the same firmware.
