    Got the email today that VDO is ending their service with the VDO road log.
    I knew this was inevitable when they had the solo version with no monthly fee.

    That's really going to suck for a lot of people, especially right now when money and work is tight for most, to have to shell out money for a new system isn't cool.

    I'm afraid they're not going to be the only ones though.

    I saw this coming when they made ELDs mandatory. I'm waiting for them to decide to change the HOS up just a bit and then everybody has to pay 50 bucks for a software update.

    I never liked their product anyway, the paper printing never seems like a good solution to me and so I never thought they'd take off and be a big player in the game. There are far more elegant solutions. Personally, I like Keep Truckin I have it on an iPad and it just works.

    I'm wondering do they take you out to dinner first? Buy you a couple of glasses of wine. Take you some where nice. I mean...well...I'm asking for a friend really. :D

    My VDO was a solo meaning no monthly up charge for service.
    Most of the other brands carry a monthly fee.
    My operation is a seasonal one so I would have to pay for 6 months of monthly charges for nothing.
