Use the Personal Use sub status

This article describes how to use the Personal Use sub status when changing your HOS status manually on the Dashboard screen.

You can use the Personal Use sub status to record driving for personal use if your administrator has enabled this functionality in your account. Time recorded as Personal Use does not count towards your permitted driving time. It counts as off-duty time instead.

On an Android device, follow these steps to record Personal Use time:

  1. Make sure that you are connected to your vehicle.

  2. On the Dashboard screen, tap OFF (Off Duty).

  3. Select the sub status Personal Use from the list.

  4. Enter your location. If you are connected to a vehicle, the app logs the location automatically.

  5. Enter a mandatory comment.

  6. Tap Confirm.

On an iOS device, follow these steps to record Personal Use time:

  1. Make sure that you are connected to your vehicle.

  2. On the Dashboard screen, tap CHANGE STATUS.

  3. Under Off Duty, select the sub status Personal Use.

  4. Enter your location. If you are connected to a vehicle, the app logs the location automatically.

  5. Enter a mandatory comment.

  6. Tap CONFIRM STATUS CHANGE.

When you begin driving, you cannot access the Dashboard screen because the screen is locked.

  • To exit Personal Use, tap GO TO DASHBOARD and manually change your status.

  • To remain in Personal Use, do not go to the dashboard.

If you turn your vehicle off while in the Personal Use sub status, and then re-start and drive, your status changes to Driving.
