    The only trucking type boards, or forums I frequent is this one (The Truckers Report), and TruckingBoards.

    ELD even though I can run paper, I am not out running hard core needing to fudge logs. There may have been a few times I wish I could but it just makes it easy to stay legal. I believe when you get pulled into scale for inspection showing thrm an electronic log that is fully legal for the past 14 days or whatever makes it one less thing to dig for. In my two roadside inspections no discrepancies.
    I also use it to track IFTA miles. When I file IFTA quarterly I can log in and in seconds have all the miles driven in each state.

    Now, one reason I say I am one bad day from getting rid of them. It is now costing $42 a month. was cheaper my first two years. I can track IFTA on my garmin GPS easily or just do it manually. I can also easily run on paper with my truck.

    Its pretty cool you can track IFTA on your Garmin GPS. Do you have to pay for that service on the GPS or is a certain feature you need or software upgrade?

    it is a function of the GPS, it saves all trip data. OTR1000 is the model, I am not sure what other models garmin have that do it.

    I’ve downsized, Covid left me with my hired guy fully retiring.
    Sold down, got two trucks and just got another new trailer this past week.
    I have TruckingOffice for load management/billing/keeping up with Fuel receipts, can put in maintence costs and keep up with all cost/revenue per mile a lot easier, & paid invoices, etc.

    Keeptruckin is my elog only, though it tracks where your trucks are/how fast it’s being driven, etc.
    I also use Bulkloads
    BulkLoads.com: The Largest Bulk Freight Marketplace

    I’ve got my own dash camera that faces out, from falcon electronics.
