Choosing an ELD solution: What to ask


Commonly asked ELD questions

ELD compliance means complying with the eld mandate, or final ELD rule.
The ELD mandate, also referred to as the ELD Final Rule, is a United States federal government regulation. It states that commercial motor vehicle operators are required to use an electronic logging device, or ELD.
The ELD mandate is required because it is intended to help create a safer work environment for drivers. Additionally, it streamlines the ability to accurately track, manage, and share records of duty status (RODS) data.
An ELD solution can help you fleet stay compliant with the ELD mandate.
ELD solutions eliminate the paperwork problem mainly by automatically tracking driving time, including duration and distance. An eld solution records data regarding the operation of the vehicle and driver activity such as driver hours of service (HOS) and record of duty status (RODS).
An ELD is an electronic logging device that is used by commercial motor vehicle drivers to automatically record drive time and Hours of Service (HOS) data. Additionally, ELDs can capture data on the vehicle engine, movement and miles driven.

An electronic logging device solution consists of hardware and software.  The ELD hardware device is a piece of electronic hardware installed on a commercial motor vehicle engine to record driving hours. Commercial drivers regulate driving hours by a set of rules known as the hours of service in the United States.

An electronic logging device (ELD) plugs into a vehicle's onboard diagnostics (OBD) port to capture data on the vehicle's engine, location, speed, miles driven, and more.

Electronic logging device software is to be used by commercial drivers who are required to prepare hours-of-service (HOS) records of duty status (RODS). ELDs must be certified and registered with FMCSA. All commercial bus and truck drivers are required to use an ELD solution to keep record of compliance with the Hours of Services (HOS) rules.

Yes! Geotab ELD solutions ensure compliance for Hours of Service (HOS), Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR), and driver identification (Driver ID). Geotab's ELD solutions help fleets meet compliance regulations and our electronic logging solution is self-certified and registered with FMCSA.
ELD benefits include compliance regulations, productivity boost and driver safety and more. Contact Geotab to learn how an eld solution can benefit your business.
