These release notes pertain to the ELD Hours of Service application available on the 2020, Connect, and Tab Active2 tablets. For release notes pertaining to ELD reports for dispatchers, see the Ground Traffic Control release notes.

My tablet's ELD version isn't listed here?
Zonar is committed to active development for ELD, and often performance updates or bug fixes require smaller updates that are not listed here. This page details the minimum version to contain the described feature or behavior change; if your version is a higher number, it will include everything from all previous versions.
September 13, 2021
- ZLogs now includes an ELD Diagnostics feature. This feature provides a dashboard verifying the presence or absence of engine and TCU data required by the US and Canada regulatory agencies, which should allow faster troubleshooting for malfunctions.
To access the ELD Diagnostics screen, open the main menu in ZLogs and tap ELD Data Verify at the bottom of the menu.
For more information, see the ELD Data Verify section in Driver Logs (US) or Driver Logs (Canada).
May 14, 2021
- ZLogs now includes a Split Sleeper Berth toggle. This toggle informs ZLogs that you are using the split sleeper option, which notates it in your logs and allows ZLogs to correctly calculate remaining hours.
- Tapping on a violation in ZLogs now displays which rules are considered to be violated.
September 8, 2020
- The version enables the final revision of the US Hours of Service rules which will go into effect September 29, 2020. ELD will continue to work as standard until September 29 at 9 pm Pacific Time, at which point the final revision will automatically go into effect. If the ELD version on the tablet is lower than 30496, the final revision will not take effect.
- The Florida Intrastate Hours of Service ruleset is now available on request.
- Drivers can now un-assign unidentified driving logs that they accidentally assumed.
May 22, 2020
- The California Intrastate Hours of Service ruleset is now available on request.
- Drive time after the vehicle's engine has powered off is no longer uneditable. A Manual Drive event is inserted at the time of power off, which can then be edited as needed.
March 9, 2020
- Unidentified Driving Logs (UDLs) may now be unassigned from the tablet should a driver accidentally accept UDLs which do not belong to them. Unassigned UDLs will appear in the dispatcher's view in Ground Traffic Control in the same manner as rejected UDLs.
- Drivers can now share their logs with non-FMCSA email addresses via the Share Driver Logs option in the ELD menu.
This option is not intended for official roadside inspections. Continue to use the Export function in Roadside View.
- ELD now provides visual and audible warnings when the driver is:
- at risk of violating hours of service (within one hour);
- violates hours of service.
- The internal logic to determine when an Engine Synchronization Data Diagnostic should occur has been adjusted to reduce unnecessary alerts while remaining compliant with FMCSA regulation.
- The logic determining eligibility for short-haul exemption status has changed to be more compliant with FMCSA regulation. See Short Haul Ruleset Change for more information.
- The ELD Data Malfunction message in the notifications dropdown no longer instructs you to use paper logs. FMCSA does not require drivers to use paper logs if the ELD continues to capture compliant logs during a malfunction.
- ELD now supports the 150 air mile radius ruleset for drivers operating property-carrying vehicles that do not require a CDL to operate. See Available ELD Rulesets for more information.
