Leer en Español

This article describes how to use the sub statuses Personal Use, Yard Moves, and Split Sleeper Berth, when changing your HOS status manually on the Dashboard screen.

Use the Personal Use sub status

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 OF (Off Duty).
  3. Select the sub status Personal Use. You might need to swipe along the list of sub statuses.
  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.

If you stop driving for more than 5 seconds, the option to access the dashboard appears.

  • 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.

Use the Yard Moves sub status

You can use the Yard Moves sub status to record driving around a yard for maintenance purposes if your administrator has enabled this functionality in your account. Time recorded as Yard Moves does not count towards your permitted driving time. It counts as on-duty, not driving time instead.

On an Android device, follow these steps to record Yard Move time:

  1. Make sure that you are connected to your vehicle.
  2. On the Dashboard screen, tap On (On Duty).
  3. Select the sub status Yard Moves. You might need to swipe along the list of sub statuses.
  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 Yard Move time:

  1. Make sure that you are connected to your vehicle.
  2. On the Dashboard screen, tap CHANGE STATUS.
  3. Under On Duty, select the sub status Yard Moves.
  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.

If your vehicle stops moving, the status changes to Idling and you will be asked whether you want to go On Duty.

If you do not choose On Duty and the vehicle moves, the status returns to Yard Moves.

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

Use the Split Sleeper Berth sub status

If you want to split your daily reset break into two parts using the Split Sleeper Berth break, you must ensure the following:

  • One break must consist of at least 7 consecutive hours spent in the Sleeper Berth status.
  • The other break must consist of at least 2 consecutive hours spent in the Sleeper Berth or Off Duty status.
  • The total of the two breaks must be at least 10 hours.

The steps for changing your status differs slightly on Android and iOS devices. See Log off-duty time for the differences.

To use the Split Sleeper Berth break:

  1. When you are ready to take the first part of your break, stop driving.
  2. You can choose whether to take the shorter or longer part of your break first. Ensure you follow the rules mentioned above. Log off-duty time as either SB (sleeper berth) or OF (off duty). If you selected SB, select the sub status Split Break.
  3. Take the first part of your break.
  4. When you are ready to go on duty or drive again, log on-duty time. Any driving time between the two rest breaks counts towards the work shift after both rest breaks.
  5. When it is time for the second break, you must take a break that is long enough so that both breaks add up to 10 hours.
    For example, if your first break was 7 hours spent in the sleeper berth, you must take at least a 3-hour break as your second break. Remember that your longer break must be spent in the Sleeper Berth status.
    Log off-duty time as either SB (sleeper berth) or OF (off duty). If you selected SB , select the sub status Split Break . In this case, the Sleeper Berth status icon changes to display the split break.
