Teletrac Navman announced its Director ELD platform is now self-certified and listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s electronic logging device registry under the name of its in-cab ELD component, the Teletrac Navman Drive unit. FMCSA’s ELD mandate requires carriers to utilize a device self-certified and listed on its registry no later than December 16, 2019. Compliance with the mandate can be achieved by utilizing a currently offered AOBRD logging device not on the registry by a date prior to the December 18 enforcement deadline later this year.
Director ELD expands upon the company’s ELD guarantee, promising Director HOS customers no-cost firmware and software updates needed for any subsequent compliance changes.
“Fleets and trucking operations face great uncertainty with today’s changing business environment, competitive pressures and regulations, said Renaat Ver Eecke, Teletrac Navman’s president. “Our customers can take comfort in knowing we help them minimize operational risks and improve business performance, all while guaranteeing compliance today and tomorrow.”
Teletrac Navman Drive is an easy-to-use suite of applications integrated into the in-cab Garmin commercial truck tablet. Drivers can proactively stay ahead of driving hours and breaks through audible alerts and post-trip feedback reports, the company says. Teletrac Navman Drive also includes advanced in-vehicle navigation with truck routing, two-way messaging and electronic Driver-Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs).
Director HOS offers a single, all-encompassing view of up-to-the-minute HOS statuses for fleet managers, including a breadth of telematics capabilities including vehicle analytics, driver behavior monitoring, enhanced geofencing, custom reporting and dashboards, as well as robust third party integrations to help carriers reduce operational expenses.
