Frequently asked questions
What happens when I lose cell coverage?
Motive hours-of-service data is always transmitted from the Vehicle Gateway to the phone via your choice of Bluetooth or USB. Data will be sent to the dashboard when a cell connection is established. With Motive, losing your cell connection won’t put compliance at risk.
Do my drivers need a cell phone to use the fleet WiFi?
The WiFi Hotspot makes it possible for you to purchase WiFi-only devices without having to buy a data plan for everyone.
Can I use WiFi Hotspot data outside the U.S.?
Yes. Fleet hotspot data can also be used while roaming in Mexico and Canada.
What cellular network is used?
We partner with AT&T, the nation’s most reliable cell network.
Do I need an AT&T contract or account?
No. You don’t need an AT&T account to use Motive ELD, thanks to the WiFi Hotspot. Your Motive contract covers the cellular connectivity built into the ELD.
Is there an extra cost to enable or use the fleet hotspot?
Our Vehicle Gateway (ELD) comes with a built-in WiFi hotspot so that drivers don’t have to use their personal data plans. The Motive Pro and Enterprise plans include 500 MB of data per unit per month. Motive Starter plans do not include the WiFi Hotspot.
What if I need more data?
Additional data packages are available for purchase.
