    Sorry to kick a dead thread but i recently started using the DDL program and have some questions. Is there a guide anywhere on how to use this program? the website is minimal at best. I need stuff like what all the buttons do, what all the menus do, tips, stuff like that. stuff like "when do i use the new data button?" or "when should i "close" something? or all the options under the Settings button.

    Any help would be great. My trainer showed me this proram but he really didnt know a whole lot about it. Thanks in advance for helping out a new driver.

    Guys; aside from being tired (o I haven't read all the post); but can this software be used in other countries as well?
    I wouldn't mind using it down here, it gives another reason for my laptop other then music and web-surfing (and movies.. no porn)

    Haven't read all of the post but in the beginning ones that I did read many mention printing your logs to sign them. FYI if you scan your signature and it will be on your logs on screen :biggrin_25525:

    It shows you have not read all posts !

    Been using DDL for years and it's a great program !
    However, YOU MUST HAVE A PRINTER IN THE TRUCK to be legal using it !

    Keep in mind there are printers out there that are the size of pencil cases need no external power and print full size! I know I have one! I managed to put a laptop, printer and scanner/fax into a briefcase. Its sure is a space saver!

    For a company driver the lite is all you need.
