Malfunction NotesField Warrior® monitors its own compliance with ELD regulations. If a malfunction is detected, the app will notify the user by displaying an alert. The malfunction will also be logged in the ELD Malfunction Log that will be visible upon inspection. To see any malfunctions, open the menu drawer and select Alerts & Notifications. Malfunctions are also visible in Inspection Mode, which displays all event logs including malfunction events. Power Malfunction If Field Warrior® loses power or is disconnected from the vehicle, a warning message is displayed noting that the ELD is no longer being powered by the vehicle, and a malfunction event is logged. Engine Synchronization Malfunction If Field Warrior® detects a problem retrieving information from the vehicle’s ECU or detects a loss in ECU connectivity, a warning message is displayed and the event is logged. Timing Malfunction Field Warrior® periodically checks an external source for the current time to keep accurate logs. If the ELD is unable to get the current time from an outside source, a timing compliance malfunction is logged. Positioning Malfunction If Field Warrior® detects a problem acquiring a valid position measurement, a position malfunction is logged. The driver will also be prompted to make a manual location entry at the time of a duty status change if the ELD has not been able to acquire an accurate position measurement. The ELD will also log a position malfunction if the cumulative time between valid position measurements (within 5 miles) exceeds 60 minutes over a 24-hour period. Data Recording Malfunction Field Warrior® stores data locally and also sends driver data to be stored remotely. A data recording malfunction event is logged and a warning is displayed if a data malfunction is detected, a local database error occurs, or the device is unable to download the remotely stored logs. Data Transfer Malfunction If Field Warrior® detects an issue with the data transfer mechanism or is unable to verify functionality within seven days, it will attempt to verify functionality every 24 hours for 72 hours. If it is unable to successfully verify data transfer through web services and email, a data transfer malfunction is logged. Other Malfunctions If Field Warrior® detects some other malfunction such as a hardware/software error, malfunction, or crash, it will log the event as Other Malfunction.
