    IDK, mine has no increments. But, 10 minutes does round off to 15 if that's the way it's setup.

    Ah, that's what happened to me. Only, the DOT officer downloaded it. I know I had unsigned logs, fueled and unloaded off duty. He gave me a clear pass.

    I'm running paper logs, 15 minute increments are the way they're set up. I won't round it up to 15 minutes if if I only spent 10 minutes there? That's falsifying records and that's supposed to be a no no.

    I didn't know anyone still used paper logs. I know paper logs, I was just trying to understand what's really going on out there when people get into a bind with the ELD.

    I'm kind of a hillbilly who refuses to "get with the times." They try to force us running ag and older trucks onto Elogs I'll probably move to more local freight.

    I thought the ELD was some Orwellian Big Brother thing in the beginning.

    Now, man, I love not filling out a paper log. Also too, I love that the computer argues in favor of me not running myself into the ground. Used to be employers would try to squeeze everything they could out of you and I always ended up quitting just to get a life for awhile.

    Might as well say it. Probably like 9 years ago I pulled Dollar General for U S Xpress. I knew there were some who unplugged their ELDs on occasion.

    Alright so, there are people getting around the system at times. I don't know anyone who attempted anything like that on my last job, didnt really need to.

    Now I understand there may be a sector doing this regularly. I just wonder if anyone will talk. You can get stuck. Just one hour of on duty time might make you have to recap instead of reset and then not be able to make a delivery time. One hour. So maybe the answer is an inappropriate use of PC- oh sorry, I did that wrong?

    Seems to be an open secret that the Chicago White Volvo crowd uses ELD’s that give you, for a modest fee” the ability to edit what you would like to edit. Servers are alleged to be in Eastern Europe, and the companies offer different editing “packages”.

    They are not editing within the current legal framework. They are accessing the server, leaving no trace of the edits.

    If they get caught, they just pull up stakes and reincarnate. If the heat gets bad, they vamoose back to Eastern Europe with their winnings.
