US Driving Break
Clarification for US driving break
Region: USA only
We’ve made improvements to the Rest break rules for US Hours of Service (HOS)! For better clarity, we’ve updated the text for the countdown to Driving break in to reflect that the break can be done in any non-driving status. To help keep you on track, we’ve also added a Driving break counter that displays the time spent in non-driving status. Once 30 minutes have elapsed, a checkmark displays to inform you.
Added specific feedback for transfers
Region: Canada only
If a transfer to a Canadian enforcement official fails, drivers will now see a more detailed error message that explains the issue for an improved user experience. The detailed error message allows drivers to be confident in the reason provided and gives them the chance to double-check the email input with the officer.
Routes and Optimization 101 (Feature Preview)
Improved MyGeotab Routes and Optimization
We’re continuing to work on improving the design and usability of Routes and Optimization for fleets of all sizes! In this release, we focused on improving the driver’s experience when receiving and managing routes in the Drive App.
We’ve added a dedicated Routes tab in the Drive App. The Routes tab allows drivers to efficiently manage their assigned routes, and view any changes made to the routes in MyGeotab. For your convenience, the route-related information in the Drive App is synced with any changes made in MyGeotab.
We’ve also made the following updates to the Route page in MyGeotab to improve the user experience:
- Added an Arrival Window row under the Route Stops section. The Arrival Window field allows you to specify a time window for a driver to arrive at a location on the route.
- Added functionality to the Optimize Route option to factor in the specified arrival time window.
- Added Start Location and End Location toggles. The toggles allow you to lock the start and end locations of the route prior to optimization.
- Removed the limit of 25 stops on a single route. You can now optimize any stops as needed, as long as the total duration of the stops is less than 24 hours.
