** Users must own the Garmin eLog™ compliant ELD (FMCSA-registered electronic logging device). The Garmin eLog is ready right out of the box, and supports 9-pin J1939 and 6-pin J1708 diagnostic ports to fit nearly any truck. It’s simple to set up and there are no subscription fees. Take the easy route to ELD Compliance! The free, easy-to-use Garmin eLog™ app may be downloaded to your compatible smartphone to complete your ELD compliance solution. The Garmin eLog compliant ELD solution accurately records and tracks Hours of Service (HOS), then securely stores it locally to your smartphone— never in the cloud. Garmin eLog allows your records to be wirelessly transferred to your compatible smartphone for viewing by you anytime. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We listen to your feedback. The teams at Garmin are working continuously to improve the Garmin eLog system. If you experience any issues or problems, please reach out to our Product Support team at support.garmin.com.
It doesn’t work on my new iPhone but works on my old iPhone 5. Keeps crashing and deleting driver profile causing me to have to delete the app and lose logs and reinstall to set up driver profile again. The app needs to be fixed, completely broken.
I haven’t been able to connect my phone to the device and when I go to connect it kicks me out/crashes before I can even connect or log in
Its doing great for me, the fact of no subscriptions payment is awesome, is easy to use, I recommend highly One last thing to improve: 14hrs shift is not there and would be perfect of we can see it along with the other clocks Thanks Garmin!!
Just updated and keep crashing
A Arizona highway patrol wanted me to send him a report via email, this app isn’t able to. It only sends reports via Bluetooth or usb which is not acceptable by the DOT inspectors. I got a VIOLATION for this reason.
My driver needs a reliable eld with a functioning app, but this is not it. It works fine most days but then suddenly it forgets your login, logs you out, and keeps crashing not letting you access anything. My driver now has to reinstall the app and lose his past 7 logs. He has to risk being fined for not having the logs of the past week because of this unreliable app.
if you use a smart phone it often has trouble reconnecting to the unit once you get back into the truck. and the app constantly crashes, ive had to delete and re download it several times which causes you to lose all of your HOS logs. quite concerning in the event you are stopped by an inspector
Ever since the last update the app constantly crashes. I have to delete and redone load it just to be able to log hours.
This ELD is not worth the money, it has many issues that go along with duty status as well as THE ELD KEEPS DELETING PREVIOUS LOGS AND YOU HAVE TO START OVER. This has happened to me twice, sure you can back them up but after EVERY SINGLE DAY? I’m supposed to sit in the truck more to back up my logs? No, I’ll be searching for a DIFFERENT ELD.
Everything is good except “shift” timer. Developers add this feature to app. This will help to increase overall rating and usability. Everybody really need to see their work hours!
