    Typically, I would be. However, I was laid off at the time. Sigh

    I will say that I had my first interaction with Maven's customer support on Thursday last week after switching from VDO and it was awesome. Very helpful and I didn't have to wait forever to talk to someone.

    Adding to this. KeepTrucking called me yesterday. Nice guy. Talked to my boss who set us up with Maven and even with the discount, Maven was cheaper.

    Nice! I went with keep trucking. $600 a year for the full service, ifta, and dash cam. But, I actually like it! It’s kinda of convenient being able to do everything on the phone. I just started using it on the road 2 days ago.

    I think $240 a year is the standard rate. I’m not to happy about the fees/ but everything else actually pretty good!

    Ours has IFTA but not the dash cam. It is only 2 units that we have that are actual fleet. Everything else we have is for sale. We installed tablets in the 2 units that are not dedicated to specific drivers, just whoever is willing and able to run the delivery or pick up.

    Jasper with KeepTrucking was super nice and willing to give me all of the information. We had already signed up before I came back to work.

    I still can't decide what to switch to. will not use my phone, don't want bluetooth, the idea of giving my email to them makes me nuts. I have a brand new truck so I'm not drilling holes anywhere or putting anything in my way with pedestal crap ( not a ton of room) was just looking at tuckx but not seeing it in any threads.

    Is there really any way to securely mount something without drilling holes?

    yes, fabricate brackets to something existing. I had the vdo just laying on pad on the dash. was going to hang it from the cb overhead when I got time to fabricate the brackets. glad I was to busy before they gave notice.
