I have been reading articles about all the ways the ELD providers have to make money from the data collected from us. Better read and understand the user agreement.

It’s true, that all your company secrets are for sale now, your shippers, your receivers the distance between them, the way you dispatch your drivers, the amount of time you spend on the docks, all the information your competitor needs to cut your rate, is now available for purchase, thanks to ELD’s. Brokers are no longer protected by contracts with carriers, since the Broker has no control over the data collected by the ELD, or who your provider sells it to. I warned folks this was coming quite awhile ago, just like I warned folks a trade war was coming before trump was even elected. Funny how that turned out.

Alfred you need to remember they said the same thing about Patton, Tesla and Einstein, to name a few. I understand that one of our biggest critics is now the owner of a amphibious T-600, and decided to become a u-boat captain for the axis.

It was all humor, you sort of had to be in the loop to get it though.

There's a small correction there Dave. The decoder is only in the 12 pack of roundup pounders. The mistake was made because Monsanto had to fire its good employees to pay for all the frivolous lawsuits

Facebook and Google and YouTube sell your personal info. I'd give someone my peterbilt if they could provide real evidence that the USDA doesn't sell my acreage data to the board of trade, why would it be hard to believe that eld data could be used for more than just "safety". Obviously I have no proof of that but I find it to be a legitimate possibility
