I currently use JJ kellars eld. To me it is ment for large trucking companies, they have no ag exempt or anything like that on it. It lags way behind, very glitchy, and sometimes keeps u logged on while u are stopped. The good is when I do my reports every 3 months it has all my fuel and mileage in every state and basically makes it very easy todo my dot stuff. So what ELD’S are u guys using that make it easy todo the reports and have a ag exempt option that is easy to run and goes to your phone. Thanks

I currently run the Garmin ELD. You have to go to personal conveyance then type in Agricultural.
I like the no monthly fee but the model 710 dezel gps that I use requires a smart phone to Bluetooth the Eld and gps. The GPS constantly disconnects from the eLog.

There are many choices out there. We use Motive and have been using it since ELD's were mandated. They have the ag excemption capability and are very reliable.

Konexial My20, has a dedicated Ag function and the customer service is second to none. They have quite a few training videos on YouTube.

Motive is not out of service, used to be called Keep Truckin. Been using it since the ELD mandate.

Eld's? I remember hearing about those. Yeah, screw that! I'm still running my 95 379 with a mechanical cat in it. She's been a good one.

I run J.J Keller Encompass. The customer service is top notch. Once I got it all setup it's easy to use and it has a non-regulated driving function that I use for harvest. My only complaint is it's a little more complicated to setup than it needs to be for an owner operator.

You guys have to watch on the Ag exempt feature that it doesn’t count down your 70 hr clock. My People Net would show no hours for the day but would count down the 70 hr clock.

I've used big rig ever since we've had to have one. I have no complaints other than you have to use PC for ag exempt and put it in the notations. They did a podcast on one here in Bulkloads that I'm seriously thinking about it's got a really nice ag exempt feature. I just can't use ag exempt all the time So I don't know if I'd be worth a switch
