How to Use Hyrail

Encompass® ELD allows hyrail drivers to distinguish between on-duty hyrail time and standard on-duty driving. This functionality is first enabled in the back office by the company Encompass administrator. 


Logging Into Hyrail Mode

When logging into Encompass® ELD, the driver is prompted to select their duty status. If, upon starting their day, they are immediately going to be using hyrail functionality, they can toggle on Utilize Hyrail Functionality?.

Now the driver is in Hyrail mode. When the vehicle moves, the driver's time will be recorded as On-Duty Hyrail, not counting against their standard On-Duty/Drive time. 


Switching to Hyrail Mode After Login

If the driver isn't immediately starting in a hyrail status, they can leave the toggle off on the login screen and switch to hyrail mode at a later time. From the Encompass® ELD dashboard, tap on the duty status in the green bar, or select Menu > New Status in the upper right hand corner.

When the status of On-Duty Not Driving is selected, turn the toggle on for Utilize Hyrail Functionality? Press OK.

Logging Out of Hyrail Mode

When drivers are finished utilizing the hyrail functionality, they can logout of hyrail by going back to Menu > New Status or tap on their duty status in the green bar.  Turn the toggle off for Utlize Hyrail Functionality (if remaining on duty), or change their status to their needed status, and press OK.
