    Hey fellas, anybody out there currently using the keeptruckin ELD to diagnose fault codes on the truck? It sounds like a really good idea ...but a good idea and it actually working are two different things. I'm actually really leaning towards getting that option thru the ELD subscription but I just want to get some feed back from you guys. I think it's like $35 a month ...if it keeps me up to date on the trucks well being it's worth a lot more in my opinion. Once again thanks for the feed back

    I use their ELD, but I wouldn't consider that option for $35 per month. Heck you can pull into just about any garage or even Speedco, and they can tell you what a code is.

    I see that Keeptruckin just added a feature to their app for a load board. I checked it out and clicked on a load, and noticed a button to "call broker now". No thanks.

    I have KeepTruckin and it won’t tell you anything more than what your truck will, assuming you have a newer truck that will show codes.

    Yeah I've got a 2012 Cascadia ...from what ive read it's pretty much for management to keep up with the condition of the trucks but if your an owner operator with 1 truck it's pretty much not neccessary

    You can pick up an obd2 reader for a truck for a couple hundred dollars. The one for my 16 Pete is 189.99
