Troubleshooting Tips

  1. If the device has successfully paired with your smartphone and the white indicator lights are on, but there is no data appearing on the ZUS app, it may be that your vehicle does not support external OBD devices. There are certain car makes that do not support 0B 0 -11 devices for various reasons Please check our online FAQ at www.help.nonda.co for more info.
  2. If the device is plugged into the 0BD-11 port and the indicator lights are not turning on, please contact our Customer Support Team at [email protected] for fur the assistance.

Important Safety Instructions

  • Do not submerge or expose to water far extended time period.
  • Do not place near any open flame sources.
  • Do not disassemble.
  • Avoid dropping.


Please note that your vehicle must be OBD- 11 compatible in order for the ZUS app to work. As a rule of thumb, petrol/gasoline vehicles built since 1996 and Diesels built since 2004 are OBD-11 compliant.

ELD Manual

ELD Mandate Overview

It is important to know that ELDs do not fully automate driver logs but are a tool to simplify the process of data collection for a driver’s logs. For example, you still have to manually set your duty statuses to “Off Duty”, “Sleeper Berth”, and so on. You also have to manually certify your records.

The BIT ELD adapter allows your vehicle to communicate with the BIT ELD app over a wireless connection. To support compliance with the FMCSA’s ELD mandate, it automates the collection of the following data items:

  1. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  2. Odometer mileage
  3. Engine hours
  4.  Engine on/off status
  5. Vehicle in-motion status

These are the only data items from the vehicle’s data bus that are used to support compliance with the ELD mandate.

The VIN is used to automatically associate your records with a specific vehicle. If you move your ELD adapter to a different vehicle, it will automatically read the new VIN and use the new VIN in your logs. The odometer and engine hour readings are used to automatically fill in fields in your driver logs.

The engine on/off status and vehicle in-motion status are used as triggers to automatically record events. A record will be automatically added to the ELD’s logs when the engine is turned
on or turned off. When the vehicle’s wheel speed exceeds 5 mph, a duty status of “Driving” will
be automatically recorded. If the vehicle is no longer in motion, the ELD will automatically record a duty status change to “On Duty Not Driving” after 6 minutes if the driver does not
manually change their duty status. When the ELD adapter detects that the vehicle is in motion,
the time must be recorded as either driving, personal use of the commercial vehicle, or a yard
move. The time when the vehicle is in motion cannot be shortened or changed to a non-moving
status such as Off Duty, Sleeper Berth, or On Duty Not Driving. This is all part of the ELD

Your records are collected and stored in a database on your smartphone or tablet with the ZUS
app. However, the ELD adapter has internal memory to store events when not connected to the
ZUS app. These records will be associated with the “Unidentified Driver” account and will be
visible to all drivers of that vehicle on the Home screen of the ZUS app.
