Haven't complained about Random Mc Nag-me in a while, so here's the latest glitch

    Lost a week's worth of logs. 9 days.
    I certify pretty much daily and the reminder pops up every morning (because when you're done for the day, you still need to wait until midnight to cert.)

    So this morning the usual pop up shows up, "remember to certify!" (Which is pointless btw because it always needs approximately a half hour to sync, assuming you even have internet signal. 90% of my pretrip consists of waiting for the logbook to boot up and data entry. So much for public safety.)

    So my logs were current AND CERTIFIED(!!!) until the day before yesterday, and this morning? All gone. The kicker of this is now it wants me to certify (with MY name and ID!!!) an incorrect document!

    This is why the whole ELD thing is pointless. If the entire log can be scrapped by a mouse click even after it's certified it's worthless. Even paper logs can be submitted to a handwriting expert. In the darkest days of paper logs, I doubt any fleet manager told a driver to come in and sign a stack of error filled logs the company had written up for him. Yet here we are.

    I don't know your situation (company/owner op), but sounds like you need a different ELD. There are some good ones out there. As for Rand..I've never seen one of their products work as advertised and I sure as hell wouldn't trust them for elogs.

    Company's decision.

    All I know is, if I ever get a citation over it I'm going for a class action lawsuit.

    These ELD are junk Rand has the worst software and these trucking companies keep buying this junk. It cost thing we had Qualcomm and then we changed to rand because the monthly fee is next to nothing. Nothing will work cant change duty status always failed connection and you are right the driver will get the violation because the company put this junk in there trucks to save money. TX an IN both states have told the FMCSA these ELD are not up to industry standard and need to be uncertified.

    Lost 2 days now.
    More fun, last time the stupid thing worked I was on my 8th consecutive day and I need info on my 70 hour clock. It could come back later and give me a violation later.

    Lol, you got me.

    Most likely dropping quarters in Spyhunter and jumping dirt mounds on my BMX.

    I remember having the boss hand me my logs back and tell me to fix them so they at least looked legal.
