    Hello!

    For those of you who use the Garmin ELD, have you ever had issues sending the inspection report when stopped at a scale or by a DOT officer?

    I was recently subject to a random roadside inspection and the dot officer showed me what he got from garmin when I punched his email in on the inspection tab and it was just a chart with a bunch of numbers and did not have the proper RODS information.

    I have contacted garmin several times and they have been no help whatsoever. I tried sending my self a mock copy of the RODS and same thing it just has an excel sheet with a ton of numbers and does not have the proper log graph and it’s impossible to decipher all those numbers into duty status and what not.

    Thank you in advance for any input!

    30 min ago I had the same issue with an inspection report. Fortunately officer didn’t put me out of service or any violation but advised to contact garmin support which was totally useless. Thinking to switch to another ELD to avoid a problems in future
