    It amazes me that men complain about the well that the drink from, but will not leave the heard to find better water.

    Far to many would rather be part of the problem instead of the solution.

    Ponder on that one and see where you fit.

    That’s straight from a Union Reps mouth, but I would agree with you there.

    Omnitrax is used by many carriers and has been around awhile. I do believe it has something to do with the interface with the handhelds and the two programs not meshing properly. I have said it many times the multi step process for simple operations with the ELD’s are the problem. To many steps and to many opertunitys for the interface to not communicate with one another.

    It’s in the coding for sure.

    the company is in for a shock if they think this crap is going to be up and working in a few weeks. I have not been able to log on this device yet and after a week and a half cannot find any one to help. Hours available is the problem. Even the terminal manager shrugged his shoulders. The woman who held class on this was only interested in getting through her presentation and getting to her hotel, typical for holland training. here it is, just do it. You tube was no help because all of the video I can find is on modern electronics not this junk. any one else having this much trouble?

    The book they gave us seems to work pretty good for me.

    On a advantage day you waste 1/2 to hour rebooting them & waiting for them to download & trying to log out at night ! It's seems to just be a really OLD outdated system ?

    [​IMG]Maybe this will help

    Start day

    Clock in time clock
    Log in omnitrax on computer
    Log in on handheld p/d
    Log in on handheld Omni
    Enter tractor
    Enter trailer(only after it has work assigned to it)
    Connect hand held to truck, must be in cab
    Make sure tractor and trailer number appear under your name in Omni
    Pedal freight

    End of day

    Open Omni change from driving to on duty wait for status to change you will hear beep and top of screen will say change duty status
    Then arrive yourself
    Exit in p/d or new trip
    **Log out ( not off duty) Omni. ****
    Log out p/d
    Log off duty on computer (if you work dock do this at end of shift)
    Clock out


    ****If you do not Log Out of device this screws things up

    Feel free to ask questions
