You can also add a driver by tapping the SwitchDriver-11 LOGON CO-DRIVER button.

Notes:

      • Displaying the Team Driving buttons such as ‘LOGON CO-DRIVER’ and ‘SWITCH CO-DRIVER’ are based on the value set on its account property. Having a value of false will disable the buttons and will not display it.
      • When logging in a Co-Driver, the default Truck and Trailer value will be the current Truck and Trailer value of the Main Driver.
      • Also the HOS app will always ask for the password every time a co-driver switch to active .

        By checking the Make Primary Driver checkbox, you can set the switching driver to be the primary driver.
      • Upon successful login, the ELD records the logging in of another driver. It records a remark event on the driver’s logs stating the first and last name of the co-driver.

    (Per FMCSA, (a) ELD must provide an account secure access to data recorded and stored on the system by requiring user authentication during system login. Driver accounts must only have access to data associated with that driver, protecting the authenticity and confidentiality of the collected information.)
