Support for the Yard Move mode must be enabled in your account.
Yard Move is a mode that allows you to maneuver your vehicle around a yard, for example at a customer site or at your depot, without the driving time counting towards your HOS limits. When the Yard Move mode is turned on, your HOS status is recorded and displayed as On Duty (not driving), although your vehicle is moving. When you leave the yard, you must turn the Yard Move mode off.
If you turn your ignition off while you are in Yard Move mode, you stay in Yard Move mode. When you turn the ignition on again, you are asked whether you want to stay in Yard Move or not. You must tap End on the Yard Move screen to leave Yard Move mode.
You must not drive faster than 32 km/h or 20 MPH while in Yard Move mode. If you exceed this speed while in Yard Move mode, your status is automatically changed to Driving and you are no longer in Yard Move mode. Your driving time then counts towards your permitted driving allowance.

While you are in Yard Move mode, you cannot change your HOS status. Normal HOS functionality is disabled.
