About Location Codes

If there are common locations that your drivers frequently use, you can save the driver some typing by including an abbreviated value the driver can use to enter the location with.  it should be mentioned that the ELD does come with GPS/location services.  This feature isn't here to replace that function.  It's here to use when the ELD isn't tracking; the driver has lost GPS connectivity.

Notice the value will no longer show on the listing.

 

If you delete a value, it means the value will no longer download to the application for use by the driver.

 

When Does it Show Up?

Note that adding a Location Code into Encompass doesn't mean it will automatically load to all the Mobile Devices in the field at the point of saving.  It will load to the application the next time the driver logs into the application.
