To help you avoid and address violations, the Samsara Driver App pushes notifications to your mobile device. For each notification, the app indicates the specific driving limit or rule in the notification header and provides additional information about the specific event in the notification body.
The app pushes notifications to your phone 30 minutes in advance of receiving a violation as long as you are in an on duty state (Driving, On Duty, Yard Move). When the violation occurs, the app pushes an additional notification to your phone.
The Samsara Driver App pushes notifications for the following events.
