    We currently use Motive(KeepTruckin) for our ELD provider. They work pretty good, but our current unit is constantly causing us problem. We obviously don't want to take the time to call them every other day to have them tell us to unplug it AGAIN, so I called today to ask them to send us a new unit. They will not because they say ours is fine.

    I may have to switch ELD providers as this is really causing issues for our company.

    Does anyone have an ELD provider they would recommend? What do you like about them, and what are they shortcomings?

    Thanks for your help!

    Depending on what you are using on your Motive Apple or Android ?
    Every time their is an update we had to delete the app on computer or phone.
    Then reinstall if Motive had fixed the patch.

    E road… small and simple, we’ve been running it for probably 3 yrs or so… had jj Keller before and it seems like one of the 20 of us was on tech support daily for a couple hrs.

    scroll down the page to the picture I uploaded. That’s the system we have..

    How much is platform science per month? I have 1 truck. I had the omnitracs IVG (~$24/mo) until the 4g rollover and then they didn't want to deal with a 1 truck operation. Now I have Motive (Keep Truckin) at $50/month but am not too happy with them. Interested in platform science and would just need ELD features plus IFTA tracking.

    Morning. i ad motive for almost 4 years, went through well over 10 units because theirs kept crashing, logging drive time when i wasnt even moving or asleep, wouldnt keep correct odometer readings, so on and so forth. i finally said screw it. i bought the Garmin Elog and OTR1010 and have been running that for over a year with 0 issues. i can edit what i need to edit without having to call anyone, it keeps accurate mileage, i can do my ifta, along with alot of other things. i personally recommend it but it may not be for everyone. no subscription. buy the elog adapter and a splitter on amazon for 125 vs 250+ in the truck stops.
    Vitkouski Thanks this.
