    Contemplating a switch to GeoTab and their platform doesn't have an option to enter a signature every time a driver validates HOS / duty status. Are you buying the explanation or even have first hand experience with a DOT inspection of your logs that this is kosher? I can't find an FMSCA statement that the unique authentication of a driver's login credentials to the elog constitutes a signature when validating HOS daily.

    Lots of platforms just use typed driver id’s for the certification of logs. Are you questioning that?

    Yes, that was the essence of my question, if that's an acceptable way to validate logs
    We've only ever used KeepTruckin, which has the functionality of a driver finger signing their logs

    Samsara doesn't use anything, other than touching the thing that says "certify log" on each day.
