    I am aware of that. Which was what made it easy to spot. During the quarter I had 1 trip across 80. So it immediately stood out. I found other discrepancies with distance as well. I am using it for mapping only and still recording distance by hand. I hope they perfect it so I can just print it off and do ifta even faster.

    Just wondering if you use a cell phone how far away from the truck can you get before it disconnects ?
    Would an i pad be a better choice ?
    How much battery does the app use in a 12- 14 hour day ?

    Probably 20 feet? I've never really checked the distance. It reconnects when I get back inside anyway. There's 2 green lights on the box. Both green, good to go.

    The battery life isn't any noticeable amount shorter than standard use. If you keep the screen open to your clocks it will drain it, but not very fast. Video drains it worse, for comparison. I don't need to see the clocks at all times so I just shut the screen off. It will give an alert at 1 hour to violation anyway.

    I use one of these magnets that plugs onto the air vent and keep it plugged in all the time. Good system.
     
    FLHT Thanks this.

    We have serious problems with the IFTA reports—the mileage they report is way off. I hope you keep manual records. I cannot rely on their reports and what’s worse, can’t get anyone to fix this and now they have just chosen to ignore me

    we have multiple units running KT, no issues with IFTA but some may have issues if they are in kilometers and not miles, that can be changed in settings. I did notice that before daylight savings and checking the location history it was always off by 1 hour but its probably something I can fix with the settings as well. only things that drives me crazy is when a driver can claim someone else unidentified event and not being able to re assign it, and not being able to immediately assign and unidentified event that is on todays log, it makes you wait for the next log. All of those little annoyances are actually caused by the FMCSA's regulation not poor programming of the app itself, I have had multiple convo's with several different people at KT regarding those issues. They are also coming out with updated camera features as well along with being able to use the KT unit as a hotspot

    Company switched over to ELD mode Nov 1 with KT.
    Got one person who's IFTA miles are going backwards.
    Another Lady had a log violation for speeding going 458 mph
    I got 2 log violations for not signing the log but shows signed on my tablet.
    There seems to be some software issues going on.
