How often is the odometer recorded?

Applies To

  • Odometer
  • HOS
  • Engine Data
  • ECM

Answer

The odometer is recorded at the beginning, end, and at every hour of a trip. For HOS vehicles it is also recorded every 8 kilometers.

When the GO device detects an ignition change, it will send an odometer request to the engine. The same request is sent every hour if a trip lasts longer than an hour. The last recorded odometer time is displayed beside the odometer field within MyGeotab.
