Why an AOBRD?

If you drive a truck, bus, or other commercial motor vehicle, then you've probably heard of the ELD mandate. If you haven't, as of December 18, 2017, almost every commercial motor vehicle will be required by the FMCSA to have an Electronic Logging Device (ELD). But, there is a way to avoid getting an ELD until December 2019.

If you have an AOBRD (Automatic On-Board Recording Device) installed in your vehicle by December 18, 2017, it will be grandfathered in, and you can run with the much less stringent AOBRD rules for the next two years. How much less stringent? When we printed out the ELD rules, it took up almost 200 pages of paper. The AOBRD rules took only 2. Do you want to deal with two hundred pages of rules or just two? You can have greater control of your logs, less intrusion into your privacy, and a simpler app to work with.
