has anyone installed a toggle switch to shut off the eld when you have to sit in line for hours to unload. It is bs that you are on duty not driving

No,actually it is BS to be sitting in line for hours unpaid and logging it off duty.

Looking at the mandate requirements.. Even if the ELD is disabled temporarily, Once enabled again, it compares stored data to that of the ECM, if the data doesn't match, the logged in user has to justify, or prove the difference in the data.. IE, engine starts and stops, movement and non movement occurrences.

The dang thing is as near full proof as anything I've run across...

You must not run much stuff to flour Mills. They quit probing around 2. If you're not there by then you sit until the next day. I'm about ready to quit the hopper stuff. Pulling flatbed now. Not much better.

You are correct, I avoid those places as much as possible.Until the customer pays detention it is not worth hauling.
