A Yard Move is driving defined as On Duty (not driving). In Canada, a Yard Move is driving below 32km/hr. This status only appears as an option in the Samsara Driver App if it has been configured by your fleet or carrier administrator.
If your administrator enabled the Yard Move status for your account, you would have received an alert about the HOS Configuration Changes.
If you are ELD Exemption in the Samsara Dashboard, you will not be able to use HOS functionality while using the Samsara Driver App.
In the United States, when you manually select YM (Yard Move) and you are enabled for auto-duty, the Yard Move status will remain unless there is an engine restart. In Canada, when you manually select YM (Yard Move) and you are enabled for auto-duty, the Yard Move status will remain unless there is an engine restart and you keep your speed below the driving speed threshold of 32km/hr.
If the Samsara Driver App is active when an engine restart occurs, the Samsara Driver App will automatically prompt you to confirm if you would like to remain in Yard Move. If you do not confirm this before the 300 second timer on the app runs out, the Samsara Driver App transitions your status to Off Duty. In Canada, if you are in Yard Move status and you exceed the speed threshold, your status automatically changes to Driving and the Samsara Driver App alerts you to the status change.
If you navigate away from the app or close it and restart the engine, you must manually reselect YM to continue operating in YM status.
To manually set the Yard Move status:
From the Hours of Service view, tap the duty status bar.
Set your status to YM Yard Move.
If your location cannot be determined, the Samsara Driver App prompts you to either continue without a location, or to cancel and first choose your location. For more information, see Missing Location. If you set your location, repeat this step to select the duty status.
