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.

Go to Settings > Vehicles tab > Encompass ELD Settings section > Connected Device List


Hover over the ELD in the list and click Unassign ELD.


Confirm that you would like to Unassign that ELD from that unit.


Now that it has been unassigned, make sure that the vehicle that the ELD is moving into has been added to Encompass. If the vehicle has not already been added, go to Vehicles > List > Add New. See Add a Unit/Vehicle for more information.
