ELD

Jan 08, 2018 at 08:37 PM CST
Found my little log book on Amazon It tracks your every move bases on google map. Tried one today
it showed my route start time and when I fueled and when I stopped. Isn’t that all dot wants. I just plugged it into the USB port on the printer and I have a page to give them. It shows what the logbook shows. It was 80.00 no fees for ever I opted for the warranty.
Anyone else use this. I showed I stopped for 1hr15 minutes for fuel and lunch

From what I understand one of the requirements is that it must change duty status @ 3mph to drive status and change back to onduty not driving after 5 minutes of idle time.

It must be on the FMCSA's list of "Self Certified" ELD devices. It must also monitor the engine on and off. If it doesn't in someway hook to the truck's ECM it's probably not acceptable. The biggest thing is to check if it is on the list.

It has to connect to the truck

Led and PDF Regen, between the two it's ruining the trucking industry I believe it's thanks to the large Trucking industry there's thousands going broke and out of service that is studies across the country something definitely needs to be done for the customer having to pay for the garbage that's put on the engine for us to deal with at our cost time down warranty or not it still cost LEDs and doing that for about 3 years it's no big deal doing that but time Services a whole nother ball game this is all my opinion as we go broke . peace

If your ELD is not connected to your truck and tamper proof it isn't worth the money you spent.

An ELD synchronizes with a vehicle engine to automatically record driving time, for easier, more accurate hours of service (HOS) recording. https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/hours-service/elds/electronic-logging-devices

It plugs into a cig socket activated with the key the adapter has a USB port and when the truck moves it registers I just have to print out copies for dot
self certify doesn’t that mean prove you are innocent
been running since 1975 of the last century The most danger all truckers is the steering wheel holders that have no over the road experience

Hi Greg, talk about steering wheel holders, especially foriegn newbees who will work for cheap, because it is big money considering where there were from originally, are you awarie of the fact that the FMSCA does not have any special requirements for the amount of time behind the wheel at these drivers schools? Big carriers only want bodies to fill the seats of their trucks, so that the freight can move. Scary times.

You come up to ND and you ask the oilfield drivers how long have you had your cdl over half will tell you 6 months or less. 4 years when the boom was big most didn’t have a license but drove because the employer said it has a automatic just like a car. Then frieghtliner sales doubled. Most of the newbies got the permit and learned on their own
the ragheads is a whole different thing
