    Ok so to keep it simple, Ok so I downloaded the keep trucking e-log app and started using it with out any gps device or anything. I got pulled in to inspection few months later. The inspector asked me for my logs, I just showed him the phone, he made sure I wasn't in violation at the moment and just handed it back to me. So apparently you can just run off the app without any gps device... thoughts????

    Not going to work for an audit. Your logs aren't being backed up to a central server. All you're required to show as a driver during a DOT inspection is the last 7 days or so. That's what the app does stand alone.

    It's also not going to pass an observent leo. That's no better than paper in the eyes of the law
    P.S. It's the ecm unit you don't have. The gps is using the phone gps.

    You got very lucky. What you did is same thing as running with paper logs.

    The 395.8 Keeptruckin logbook app is the equivalent of paper logs. It does not satisfy the ELD requirement.
