Duty status changes require location information for log entries. In cases where the Samsara Driver App cannot properly identify the location, you must manually add a location to avoid a violation at a roadside inspection or audit.
When you change your duty status without a manual or automatically detected location, the Samsara Driver App provides a notification about the missing location:
You can then choose from two options: You can proceed to set your duty status with a blank location, or you can choose to cancel and manually add the location before proceeding with duty status selection.
After you Save your location, Samsara will use it to identify your location in related logs.
