Geotab Drive - ELD & DVIR
Driver Training & Help
This page is designed to assist drivers in using the Geotab Drive mobile app for ELD and FMCSA compliance. Fleetistics customers can attend as many webinar training sessions as needed.
Getting Started with Geotab Drive
Get to Know Your HOS Dashboard, Tools, and Help Content
If you are using an iPad, your dashboard will look something like the view below. On a smart phone the icons will be arranged vertically and you may have to scroll to see them all.
If you do not see the ELD Info button on your dashboard, please contact your Administrator and ask them to add it.
Navigate to the main HOS navigation where you can change duty status, edit and verify logs, view your availability, and use the yard move and personal conveyance options.
Enter and certify your pre, post, and in trip inspections.
Send and receive messages when enabled.
You may have different add ins than are displayed in this example, but all drivers should have the ELD Info add in. It contains all of the documentation you are required to have in vehicle plus valuable training information and links to the how to videos we have included on this page.
Current Vehicle Assignment
Displays the vehicle you are currently assigned to.
Tapping this button puts you in inspection mode allowing access only to the data required to be made available at a roadside inspection.
Check for updates, change your password, send feedback to the app developers, and view driver and company information that appears on your RODS.
System Setup In MyGeotab
First, find and record your Geotab database name to share with your drivers. Next, verify that the ELD Info Add In and the ELD Settings Validator Add In are installed in your system. The images to the right show the steps to locating and verifying that information.
If these add ins are not installed in your system they can be installed for free from the Geotab Marketplace. Let us know if you need assistance.
There are 3 basic steps required to get your drivers started.
1. Create your driver’s credentials using the steps detailed below.
2. Use the ELD Settings Validator to verify there is no missing information.
3. Give your drivers their user name, password, database name and this URL for training. Note: the database name is only needed for the first login.
It is helpful to collect all the needed information from the drivers and fleet manager before starting the setup process. It is recommended that you use an email as the user name because it significantly reduces the login errors and calls to the system administrator for information.
