Renaming an ELD

Tap in the Unit Number field, clear out any existing value and type in the correct Unit Number.  This Unit Number needs to match the corresponding Unit in the Encompass back office.

If the ELD has moved vehicles, it is suggested to have the Engine Data Bus set to Auto-Detect Databus.  If it has not moved, leave this field as is.

Tap OK.
