It’s tethered in the cab, accurately recording distance and location at a tax-audit level and providing reliable data you can depend on. There’s no risk of a dropping Bluetooth connection and no additional data costs.

Cellular service can add monthly fees to ELD

The web-based administration back end of Blue Ink Technology’s ELD system is small-fleet owner Wade Spencer’s portal into his company’s hours-of-service records. Blue Ink provides the portal free for all buyers of its BIT ELD and offers IFTA recording and other features for a price.The web-based administration back end of Blue Ink Technology’s ELD system is small-fleet owner Wade Spencer’s portal into his company’s hours-of-service records. Blue Ink provides the portal free for all buyers of its BIT ELD and offers IFTA recording and other features for a price.

Most any BYOD-type ELD with dedicated tablets will come with monthly costs for a data plan. In the case of Utah-based Wade Spencer’s four-truck fleet, running the BIT ELD from Blue Ink Technology, the ECM plug-in devices are paired with dedicated $10 LG tablets. These come with their own fees for cellular service, necessary for the ELD to work properly.

In Spencer’s case, that amounts to about $20 a month per tablet on his unlimited data plan. If he tried, he says, he could negotiate that cost down, given the BIT ELD uses only about 200 megabytes per month.

If you’re pairing BIT or another BYOD with a smartphone or tablet you already have with a service plan, such cost wouldn’t necessarily figure into your back-of-the-envelope return-on-investment calculation. Also keep that 200-MB data figure in mind when considering lumping ELD service into a pre-existing data plan. It’s probably a good estimate, unless perhaps the device is collecting/communicating position data more frequently for IFTA purposes.

Spencer says BIT estimates a 700-MB monthly figure per ELD with its add-on IFTA featured enabled. Other companies have estimated a good deal less than both figures.

Cellular services can be limited to particular functions with most cellular providers. As other fleets have done, Spencer locks down the LG tablets to just a few functions (BIT, the company website and email, CoPilot truck navigation). For functions such as Netflix viewing during downtime, drivers can use a WiFi connection.
