We received notification Roadlog is out of the ELD business Aug 1. Is there an ELD with ag-exemption rules programmed into the device?

ISE Fleet. But you have to go to on duty to get to that option, so it shows you Ag exempt, but it counts off your 70 hr

Has anyone used AG HOS form GeoSpace labs?

I need to get an ELD, and not a techie, so your research so far on the Ag Hos, have you found any reviews? What bothers me is if this runs off cellular, is it going to work/pass inspection, when I'm in an area without service. What else is on your short list?

The worst spot I've ever driven for service is between Gillette wy and broadus Mt on 59. Zero bars of service on your phone on that stretch, my eld logs it perfectly every time. I've never had to transfer anything to an inspector there, but I wouldn't worry about it.

I'm not familiar with that brand. But my eroad requires cell service to transfer data to an inspector. I've never had a problem and I run in many zero cell service areas very frequently.

Dale, is it Verizon?

I've been looking for your answer. For my eroad, it says that it uses "two wireless providers for optimum reliability". It doesn't specify which ones they are. I don't pay for a specific data plan. I'm assuming its figured into my monthly subscription, which for me is 35 a month and that includes fuel tax. It makes ifta super easy so im content to pay it.

Dale, you don't specifaclly say, but back to OP question.... does the eroad have the ag exemption rules programmed into it??

It does not. That's my only complaint. Must select of duty personal conveyance, and make a note. Its no big deal unless you forget to select PC again after fueling and start driving, it automatically logs on duty driving, then you have to explain to the patient and understand dot officer why you are logged on duty for 18 seconds....

I have the VDO now and it worked awesome. Now they are shutting down on August 14. The DOT hated this ELD, which made me really like it. Just wondering which other ELD out there is worth switching to, with some of the same features.

Hey, Kent, what you thinkn by now on the AG HOS, looks really good from what I've seen, but haven't read anything about IFTA reporting,not even on their website, or app reviews, surely they would have an easy way to do that?Have you found that out? Think I'm going to call them.

Everyone else, No one has used/tried this eld?

I've talked to them for some time on a couple different occasions. Over the phone it sounds promising. Regarding IFTA-this ELD records state miles just like any other. The system is relatively inexpensive, and the subsription is more or less the same as Roadlog. There is no "hardwire" between the truck and the eld. It uses a wifi/bluetooth type of connection. It also, for remote/desktop use, requires a data/SIM card in the (cell phone or tablet) device you are using their app with. We're going to give it a try.

BTW-We liked the fact that most diesel bears DESPISED the Roadlog unit! Too bad they are shuttering, maybe I'll get some money back?
