Tattle tale instead of ELD ??

Just looking thru the FMCSA site trying to figure out what's the difference in an ELD and an automatic tattle tale. Anybody know the difference?

*" Who is exempt from the ELD rule?

Drivers who use the timecard exception are not required to keep records of duty status (RODS) or use ELDs. Additionally, the following drivers are not required to use ELDs; however, they are still bound by the RODS requirements in 49 CFR 395 and must prepare logs on paper, using an Automatic On-Board Recording Device (AOBRD), or with a logging software program when required:

  • Drivers of vehicles manufactured before 2000
