We’ve got a lot of great resources available online to help you get up and running quickly so you don’t need to take time off the road to call. Do you have a question and don’t want to call? Here are the most common support questions we get asked and the answers to them.

1. How Do I Download the BigRoad Mobile App on My Phone or Tablet?

From your device, visit the Google Play Store for Android devices or the iTunes for Apple devices to download the app. Once downloaded, sign in to access your fleet and/or truck.

From your welcome email click, “Yes, but I’ve forgotten my password, please make up a new one and email it to me.”

2. What is the BigRoad Web App?

It is a fleet management tool where Fleet Administrators and Owner-Operators can find all of vehicles and settings information. To access the BigRoad Web App, visit www.bigroad.com and click “Sign In” in the top right corner. We will cover more specific tasks that can be completed through this portal throughout the blog.

  • For Fleet Admins: You can add trucks to your fleet, view drivers in real time, access to the risk dashboard, state mileage reports, and edit/print drivers logs.
  • For Owner-Operators: View and edit logs, settings, and connect your DashLink.

3. How Do I Connect my DashLink?

  1. Login to the BigRoad Web App as an admin
  2. Click on the Fleet tab

    characters long

    Once a truck has been added as ELD it cannot be switched to
    Electronic Log or AOBRD
  9. Select pairing option (VIN or device ID)
    If you select device ID, you must enter the DashLink number into the box below.
  10. Click Add Truck

If your driver is already in the system and you just need to add the DashLink:

  1. Login to the BigRoad Web App as an admin
  2. Click on the Fleet tab
  3. Select Trucks
  4. Find the truck you need to add the DashLink to and click edit

This function is also done through the BigRoad Web App:

  1. Click the Fleet tab
  2. On the left hand side click Trucks
  3. Click Add Truck in the top right corner
  4. Fill out truck information

5. How Do I Turn on the Yard Move and Personal Conveyance Feature?

6. Is My Device an AOBRD or an ELD?

If you purchase and install DashLink before Monday, December 18, 2017 - it is running as an AOBRD. You can continue to run DashLink as an AOBRD until December 16, 2019 under the FMCSA’s AOBRD grandfather clause. After this date, you will need to turn on ELD functionality.

Later this week, you’ll have the ability to turn on ELD functionality on a truck-by-truck basis to run DashLink as an ELD. You can do this at any time - it’s up to you!  Once you turn on ELD functionality for a vehicle, you cannot go back to running an AOBRD or eLog.

If you purchase your DashLink after December 18, 2017 - your device is an ELD and you’ll need to comply with ELD rules and regulations.

7.  How Do I Print and Edit My Drivers’ Logs?

There are a few different ways to do this. The easiest way to edit and print your drivers logs is:

  1. Select the Driver tab in the BigRoad Web App
  2. Click on the driver’s name for the logs that you need to view

Click the Edit Logs and Print Logs button in the top right

8.  How Much Data Does the BigRoad Mobile App Use?
