Sometimes the mobile device will come up with the following: 


  • is the web address we route the phone to if it is receiving internet.
  • Click on the link above. You will notice that the web page it displays is the message you are currently receiving on your phone.
  • Prior to you connecting to this URL,, and once the phone detects no internet, your phone will route traffic through the DriverTech device, resulting in displaying the HOS logs for the currently logged in driver code.
  • You are seeing this message below because most phones will cache this page and so you may need to clear cache. A lot of the phones are different so it may be a good idea to google it.

This above information is pertinent if you had a full set of HOS logs.

If you do not have a full set of HOS logs, such as in a testing/training environment, it can muddy the water.

  • We know there is a bug that occurs when you try to connect to a device with a full set of blank logs.
  • We have also determined that you can see this bug if you have a full 8 days of blank uncertified or certified logs.
  • When trying to back fill log data(so you don’t have blank logs), there is a certain amount of statuses you must have in order to get past this bug.


Best Practices for in office training or connecting to a unit with blank HOS:

  1. Try to connect directly following a reboot
  2. Always use Airplane mode
  3. Before entering Enforcement View on the device and while in Airplane mode, go to once, after you have connected to when you had internet.
