    Anyone on here use Maven as their ELD?

    I'm attempting to train the drivers on these units and am falling a bit short. I'm watching the videos and am going to have them do the same. I'm worried because they just went on the first long trip and it did not go so well. I acknowledge that it is my fault since I haven't taken enough time with them and the training. Here soon, one of the drivers and myself will be doing a test drive to see what all he understands and what I can help with.

    The company I am driving with uses maven as their ELD.
    Some tips I've figured out over the months.. 1st, be sure to put yourself on drive, don't rely on the maven to do so.. the automatic duty status change doesn't always work.
    2nd, when you go to enter the BOL and trailer information into the dayily log, enter the numbers you want in the corsponding field, then hit space.. it will put that number in the log and you can add more than one if you need to.
    That's all I can think of for maven spacifically. If you were wondering about something else, ask and I'll tell you what I know.

    That's perfect. I trained 2 drivers this morning and made sure to let them know. As they come up with issues or questions, I will reach out. Being so new to it, it is just a bit confusing and hard to know what is what. Thanks so much!

    I frogot to say as well. You may want to manually record the odometer milage and compare that against the mileage in the maven log.. mine tends to be inaccurate so I have to manually input my milage so that it's correct.

    We use Maven with Samsung pads, and one thing that can be a nightmare if you don’t know about it is that as the cache fills up, the app slows down and eventually stops functioning entirely. There’s a simple fix, you open up the Android settings, go to Apps, click on Maven Machines, click on Storage, and click on Clear Cache.

    I try to avoid doing that personally. Because when I do so, I ussually end up trading one set of issues for another. Last time I cleared data it deleted all of my logs on the Samsung tablet.. even the already certified ones.
