Transfers ELD data electronically to the fleet
Is integrally synchronized to the engine in the truck
Accurately records the driver’s on-duty & driving time
Meets the minimum technical specifications of the ELD rule of the FMCSA mandate
Is registered on the FMCSA website: www.fmcsa.dot.gov/elds

They must be mounted in a fixed position viewable by the driver while seated normally.
They must be able to transfer data electronically when requested at a roadside inspection.
If the data transfer fails, the driver may present a printout from the ELD or show his display screen.
The ELD record must provide standardized data with a header, graph grid and detail log.
