Moving an ELD from One Vehicle to Another

Before Removing the ELD from the Original Vehicle...

Log in to Encompass® ELD and connect to the ELD.

Ensure that the ELD connection status icon in the lower left hand corner of the Encompass® ELD dashboard shows green and says ELD OLDVEHICLE# Online.




If the ELD connection status icon is blue and says Reading History, wait for that to finish and change to green with the status saying Online.



Once the ELD status icon shows green and Online, logout of the Encompas® ELD app and remove the ELD equipment from the old vehicle.


unassigning the eld In Encompass

From the Vehicle Management tab, click the drop-down menu in the upper right hand corner and select Setup.


Scroll down to the Encompass® ELD Settings box and click on ELD Device List.



Find the serial number of the ELD in this list and click on it.



Click Unassign to unassign that ELD from that unit.



Click Unassign to confirm the unassignment of the ELD from that unit.



Now that it has been unassigned, make sure that the vehicle that the ELD is moving into has been added in Encompass by reviewing your units in the Units tab under Vehicle Management.



If the vehicle has already been added, ensure that the Unit does not already have an ELD assigned to it by reviewing the ELD Device List. Make sure that the Unit Code column does not contain the unit number. If it does, delete that ELD from the ELD device list by clicking Delete ELD on the far right side of the screen.



If the vehicle has not already been added, please add it by clicking Add a Unit on the left side of the screen while in the Units tab (See Add a Unit/Vehicle).
