As part of a Roadside Inspection, you can transfer your logs to the inspection authority or transfer logs to yourself for reference.
Internet connection is required to transfer logs. If your device is using the Samsara hotspot, the vehicle gateway must be within range of the device to transmit the logs. If you are unable to transfer logs due to lack of internet connectivity, the inspecting officer can alternatively view the logs on the mobile device using the DOT Inspection Screen (see workflow).
From the Roadside Inspection screen, tap Transfer.
Acknowledge or address any Samsara Driver App notifications before continuing.
Select the preferred transfer method for your region. You will observe a transfer error if any data is missing from your submissions. Contact your fleet administrator to resolve any transfer errors.
