Roadnet Anywhere 5.6SR - New Features and Enhancements


Note: Some of the options described are purchasable and may not appear. Contact your Omnitracs sales representative for more information about acquiring additional features.

Roadnet Anywhere version 5.6SR contains several new features that make it easier for you to plan and monitor your routes throughout the day, as well as analyze your overall transportation operation.


  • A stop event will now be created when associating with a vehicle that is in motion.
    • When a driver associates with a vehicle that is in motion, the Relay will create a stop event when the association occurs. This will allow Compliance Mobile to record driving before the stop events as Unassigned Vehicle Activity, and the motion at the stop as DRIVE time.
  • A stop event will now be created when the Relay is powered Off while in a drive state.
    • When operating as an ELD device, the Relay will now create a stop event when the Relay is powered down while the vehicle is in DRIVE state. This enhancement will terminate the DRIVE segment with a STOP segment, preventing the DRIVE segment from continuing for an indefinite period of time.
  • Consume new configuration for loss of speed diagnostic.
    • The timeout period has been increased for the following ELD Diagnostic values in order to reduce false diagnostic event readings: Loss of vehicle seed, Loss of engine speed (RPM), Loss of data bus.

Compliance Mobile

  • The border crossing prompt for Canadian DVIR has been improved to cover different drivers in the same vehicle. If 24 hours have passed since a vehicle's previous post-trip inspection was performed in the U.S. and a Canadian pre-trip inspection has not yest occurred, the driver will be prompted to perform a pre-trip inspection for the vehicle. This also applies to trailer inspections.
  • Drivers can now enter an odometer reading for a trailer during pre- or post-trip inspections. After they select Confirm in the Trailer Inspection screen and then confirm that the trailer is safe to operate, the Driver Certification screen opens with an option to enter the trailer odometer value. The field allows a maximum of seven digits and the value must be numeric. This field is not required.
  • eRODS files now include the last known duty status event prior to the start date.
    • In order to more accurately reflect a driver's tour of duty, eRODS files sent to the FMCSA from the mobile will now include the last duty status prior to the start date. For example, a driver might go ON Duty at 11 PM on November 1, and switch to Driver status at 1 AM on November 2. If the date range for the eRODS file is November 2-4, the file will now also include the 11 PM On Duty status from November 1. Previously the hours between 11 PM on November 1 and 1 AM on November 2 would not have been included in the file.
  • Several corrections have made to French terminology throughout Compliance mobile, and previously untranslated English terms have now been translated into French.
  • Changes have been made to Paper Log mode.
    • According to the FMCSA, drivers in ELD vehicles need to continue using the mobile app to record hours of service even if a malfunction is active, as long as the malfunction does not interfere with the accurate recording of the driver's HOS data. To support this requirement, the following malfunctions will not longer cause the app to switch to Paper Log Mode, and drivers will not be prompted to keep paper records:
      • Power Compliance Malfunction
      • Position Compliance Malfunction
      • Data Transfer Malfunction
    • For Engine Sync malfunctions, Compliance Mobile will not enter Paper Log Mode, but drivers will receive a message advising them to review all duty status records and either continue to use the ELD if the records are accurate (by selecting OK) or reconstruct the records if they are not accurate.
    • The behavior of the other malfunctions has not changed.
  • Compliance Mobile no longer creates a Missing Data Diagnostic event if the driver has clocked in or out using the Web Time Clock or Driver Portal.


  • There is more detailed information available in the Diagnostic and Malfunction Summary report.
    • To provide users with more detailed information and help them better assess where issues might exist for their fleets, the Diagnostic and Malfunction Summary Report now breaks the report data down by the type of event instead of displaying only the total number of diagnostic or malfunction events. This makes it easier for users to see how many of each type of event have occurred for individual organizations, drivers, or vehicles. Select the hyperlinked value in any column to open the Diagnostic and Malfunction Detail Report, then scroll to the right or left to see all the columns.

  • There are updates to the Diagnostic and Malfunction Detail report.
    • In order to reduce clutter, the Diagnostic and Malfunction Detail report no longer includes "Cleared" events and the Logged/Cleared column has been removed. In addition, the value in the Date/Time column now links to the ELD Driver Log report for the driver on the selected date.
  • In order to reduce report clutter and make the mobile login process faster, duplicated Diagnostic and Malfunction events that are sent by the mobile are no longer reported. This change affects the ELD Driver Log Report as well as eRODS files.
  • There have been changes to how a driver's current rule set is determined. Previously, the system pulled a driver’s current rule set from the last vehicle inspection. That inspection could have occurred up to two years in the past, however, and the rule set might not be accurate anymore. Now, in order to pull more current data, the system only looks for inspections that occurred within the six months prior to the current month. Note that if the driver changes the rule set manually, that rule set supersedes both the default rule set and the rule set notes in the most recent pre- and post-trip inspections.
  • There are new warning messages in the Driver Log Editor. If a back office user edits a driver’s log, and changes are made to the log on the mobile before those edits are saved, the back office user receives a warning message explaining that the current edits will be merged and suggesting that the user review the changes and try saving them again. When the back office user selects OK, they are returned to the log editor window, where the changes that will be merged can be reviewed and saved.
