    Any idea where I can get one of those paperless log books I hear fleets are going to? I'm an O/O but I'd like to look into getting one for my truck. Did a Google search without much luck. Also what's a good GPS based navigation system? I want more toys in my truck.

    I thought to operate a true paperless log (like Werner, etc) you have to have qualcomm.

    I have one of these as well. Don't think there's a logging program for it, though.

    I see this is not a recent thread but just incase anyone stops by.
    If you have a Pocket PC (Windows type) device there is something out there. Not sure if the Garmin iQue 3600 is Windows or Palm OS.
    If you do have a Pocket PC device then Google T2 Software. They have Driver's Daily Log software made for Pocket PC.
    Looks interesting but I have not tried it.

    Hello Yankee,
    No I haven't tried it yet but am seriously considering it. First I need to get the Bluetooth adapter for my portable printer. And the battery for the printer.
    If you can't print you can't use it. Well, unless you feel like hand transcribing over to a regular log book and just using the software to keep track of the math. Could be worth it just for that.
    If you decide to take the plunge let me know how you like it. They may have a free trial period but I'm not sure about that.
