    Yeah I have heard it.
    Been scratching my head. No clue what it was..
    I thought it was just my truck really.

    Just asking a dumb question here, do these trucks with all their software/electronics update on their own for things like NavSat etc??? couple times a month would be about right.

    Our fleet does not have any navigation hardware but it is "connected" to the point the clock is kept precise and they can do certain troubleshooting and parameter changes from a remote desk and an admin user.

    Yeah these new trucks all have that on board diagnostic up link, I would bet that is updating info every so often?

    Could be but I've never noticed any changes except some minor menu changes after a flash update done at the terminal with a laptop hookup. If the company pulls down data every so often, I couldn't say.

    Never seen that message but we have APUs, no idle policy, and run heavy.

    They need an Elog provision for time lost on this DEF/DPF crap. Maybe like 45 mins allowed under personal conveyance de-rate exception.

    Don't think that has anything to do with it. Apparently it's the def pump. At least I made it home.
