Yeaterday I switched into my new truck, but when I signed into the peoplenet in my new truck it doesn't have the logs for the previous two days, as like I was doing a 34 or something when in fact I drove both days. All the other logs are correct, but the previous two days. Called the logs department and basically it says the same thing on there side.

So not sure what to do.wtf-2.gif

There was an article a few days ago on CDL Life.com concerning a peoplenet data crash. Check that out because that may have something to do with your tablet problem.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Yeah not sure what's going on with it, just shows me off duty those two days. And the previous 6 days are the correct logs, the logs were fine before switching trucks and is working fine now. Just very odd, I suppose I'll tun with it like this.

I was getting some really good recap hours back, so I would've had the same type of hours going home for my home time.

These computers are weird. Sometimes shutting it down for about five minutes, then restarting it changes everything. This goes for the trucks and the ELDs.

Mine kept freezing up when i switched trucks so i took the one from my old truck. Had to call the 800 number to get admin to help me switch it to new truck.. No problems with it since. Not even the screw up the other day...except dispatch lost the data and added 3 days onto my delivery. ELD...it is what it is...

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

This is exactly what I suggest. Last month Swift experienced numerous issues with Qualcomm. Of late...far more stable.

Hard-reboot. Meaning shut the Main power switch to “off” from the battery for 5 min. On Cascadia’s the knob is next to drivers seat by the door. Turn power back on and let the reboot occur.

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

Yeah I tried all that and some other stuff before even calling the logs department. The issue is, it just doesn't have the data for the last two days, just shows me off duty and SB when I changed it but the days before that are the correct logs.

Even on Crete side, its showing up like this.

Some things defy explanation...”FM”, is all. Computers are awesome...until they malfunction.

Good luck.

Tell it to Download Logs. Then reboot. This fixes most of the crud I find with PeopleNet.

If not, make sure all your previous logs are certified and any Unidentified Driver issues are resolved.
