Reveal updates: October
Welcome to the Reveal updates for October 2020. This month it's all about smart scheduling, changes to our hours of service (HOS) and ELD malfunction reporting in accordance with the new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rules, and new road restrictions warnings available in our Navigation app.
Smart scheduling for jobs
Dispatchers can now get a scheduling recommendation based on the vehicle’s location. This is helpful when there’s an urgent job and you need to quickly identify a Technician that can get there right away.
Changes to hours of service (HOS) are now live
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has updated their HOS rules for commercial motor vehicle drivers. For the Reveal ELD Logbook app, please make sure your drivers are on the latest version of the app which is version 3.31 for iOS or Android.
New ELD Malfunction Report
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires carriers to fix a malfunctioning ELD within 8 days. Reveal now includes a report that helps carriers identify malfunctions more quickly, allowing more time to get them fixed.
New road restriction warnings in Nav
The Navigation mobile app now provides warnings of road restrictions that cannot be avoided en route including:
- Restriction warnings are now shown on the route overview screen and in text directions
- Warnings are given for physical restrictions such as height, weight and length restrictions
