    Personal Conveyance should keep you on your break just fine, unless your ELD sucks

    I know it should but that eld sucks. This is how you have to do it. If on off duty go to pc. Wait at least one minute before driving. If you shut off the engine make sure you go back on pc as it will have changed you to off duty. When you start driving it will put you on driving. Cheap pos. I notice the foreign guys all use that eld.

    I have Samsara too, and I hate it for this reason. Go off duty for one minute, then go to PC and drive wherever. Once you park, wait one full minute again, then switch to off duty. I'd even add a remark like "shopping." After shopping, repeat the process, always remembering to wait one full minute before changing duty status
