    • 1939 Protocol
    • J1708 (J1587) Protocol
    • Diagnostic Fault Codes
      • Support for mobile application to retrieve vehicle fault codes from active link.
      • Fault code notification automatically occurs on detection of change in monitored vehicle fault code data.
      • Support for client application to request immediate fault code update.
    • Discrete Parameters
      • Command support for client to request specific parameter data at any time.
      • List of supported parameters provided with API specification.
    • Snapshot Parameter Lists
      • Support for mobile client to configure a list of parameters to be stored on the ELD device and then retrieved during active BLE connection.
      • 15-minute periodic updates during BLE connection for configured list.
      • Support for client application to request immediate updated parameter list.
    • List of supported parameters provided with API specification.

    General Support

    • Seamless Background OTA Firmware Updates
    • Secure Communications and Firmware Updates
      • Limited access to BLE bondable mode via physical pushbutton on device with built-in timeout.
      • All communications between mobile client and device employ standard BLE encryption.
      • Authentication required between mobile client and device to enable datalink communications, and to enable OTA device firmware update.
      • Encrypted firmware update file.
      • Running firmware locked and encrypted to prevent data extraction.
    • Automatic Vehicle Link Detection for ELD Data of Interest (Engine Controller)
      • CAN auto-baud detection
    • Calculated Odometer Support If No ECM Support
    • Fully-Documented Driver/Device API for Developing Mobile Apps To Communicate with the ELD

    Bluetooth Support During Active Connection

    • Device Notification of Powered-On Date and Time
    • Log Record Parameter Support with Selectable Raw Data or Pre-Scaled Format, with the following information
      • GPS position and UTC time data
      • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
      • Engine serial number
      • Odometer
      • Engine hours
      • Vehicle speed
    • Log Records Notifications Automatically Occur at 15-Minute Intervals
    • Updated Log Record Can Also Be Requested Immediately by Mobile Client
    • Automatic Notification Of Each Vehicle Motion State Change
      • In-motion event = vehicle exceeds 5mph after being considered motionless
      • Motionless = vehicle motionless for more than 3 seconds after being considered in-motion
    • Automatic Data Capture Timeout Notifications
      • Device checks for more than 5 seconds without one or more required core parameters being received from expected source (ECM or calculated), and sends notification to client application on each occurrence.
      • The following parameters subject to DCT check:
        • Odometer
        • Engine hours
        • Engine speed
        • Vehicle speed
    • Configurable Distance Traveled Notifications
      • Device sends periodic odometer notifications to mobile client for specified distance traveled. Default trigger is 5 miles, configurable via API call.
      • Configurable Hard Driving Detection and Notifications:
      • User-configurable mph/s threshold for device detecting hard acceleration/deceleration events and sending notifications back to mobile client

    Bluetooth Support During Vehicle Activity with no Application Connection

    • Log Record on-device archiving, with flag indication of reason for each capture.
    • On subsequent mobile application connection, archived log records can then be retrieved via the following defined API commands:
      • 15-minute periodic capture when engine running
      • Ignition-on (engine running) / Ignition-off events
      • Driving / Not Driving Events
        • Driving = 5mph or greater detected
        • Not Driving = motionless for more than 5 minutes after "Driving" event detected
    • Initial Data Capture Timeout event, i.e., first time any of 4 core parameters not received within 5-second timeout is detected.
    • Data Capture Recovery event, i.e., all four core parameters received within 5-second window after initial Data Capture Timeout event has been previously captured.
