    Only "kink" I've run into with the Garmin is the Missouri officer not having the proper tools to transfer logs from a "local transfer" type device. They want them emailed, which just isn't possible as the local transfer devices aren't designed to do that. Unless the officer has a secure device (either USB or Bluetooth), it will not transfer. A regular phone won't connect in inspection mode, because it's looking for additional authentification to ensure the security of the data.

    That isn't MY problem, though. Device meets the federal standards. If the state chooses not to properly equip their officers, that's their choice. The device meets the federal standards and is perfectly legal to use.

    Absolutely. All you have to do, is get them to the "inspection screen." Then, it's on them.

    What do you mean by “automatic driving events”? Automatically kicking into drive mode when you’re driving, or on duty when you stop? If so, mine always has.

    Let me re-phrase... MAP-21 Compliant Devices... There are quite a few more features, details, functions...etc. that HAVE TO be included, in order to be/remain compliant, that weren't in the previous versions. Packing all of this into a Mobile Device (typically designed for Consumer Use) is proving to be "challenging." (aka A Bad Idea)

    Not a dumb question. I didn't explain properly.

    This is only the first of many of the low cost, no monthly fee type devices that will fail. Honestly, how can any of them expect to sustain their business model when the device was a one time fee that barely covered the cost of the hardware? I know many are counting on you using other subscription based services of theirs, but many don't and simply wanted the lowest cost ELD available. The only no monthly fee ELD I see surviving is VDO RoadLog since they don't have all the back end costs of data transfer, management and storage given that you manage your data locally unless you subscribe to their other fleet management tools, which in turn support the associated back end costs.

    I don't like the ELD mandate, as a small fleet owner I purposely bought pre-2000 trucks, but as a compliance consultant I had to prepare to support my clients. I chose to partner with a mid-level supplier, Pedigree Technologies, that has been in the asset tracking and mobile data business for many years, over twenty if you count their Department of Defense work prior to transitioning to their current product lines. They also have almost ten years experience with AOBRD compliant devices in the North Dakota oilfield, and although not perfect they are a good choice for a fleet that wants Qualcomm and PeopleNet like services and dependability at half the cost or less.

    Depending on exact configuration hardware is one time fee ranging from $379 to $529 and monthly service is $29 to $36.
