    How does CH track you? After signing up they asked who is my GPS/ELD provider. Are they like Uber now asking for ELD info for tracking? Which I opted out of with Uber.

    more and more shippers are demanding location tracking on their shipments. soon enough is going to become mandatory everyone uses a tracking system llike P44 which uses your eld number to give location updates. The issue here is driver have no idea how this works and think it gives some kind of unlimited access. Only thing these programs do is give locations every 15 minutes to a hour. It gives no other information. No brokers wants to track your hours or speed or anything else just the location as their customers are demanding it. This would not become a problem but more and more drivers are refusing to give any kind of update and are showing up late for appts. Its accountability thats all. Stop being late and shippers wont make these demands. But as it stands now most companies are gearing up a tracking system. We are setting up P44 now its a little cumbersom on our end but soon enough its going to be mandatory.

    The problem is not what the broker does with the information, it's what the app does with the information.

    Macro point hit a button and your set , hit arrive and depart . I haven't had any issues and the broker typically doesn't call me .

    I don’t think it is Macro Point. They will email you. By responding to the email, you’re identifying yourself. you interact and tell them your identity and it will fill in time you get there and time you leave. I thought Macro Point used the phone. If you have it on a smartphone turned on it automatically fills in when come and go. Maybe the same as Macro Point only with email.
