Magellan, a provider of GPS navigation solutions, has released the iOS version of its electronic logging device (ELD) solution for owner-operators.
Priced at $10 per month, this simplified, FMCSA-compliant ELD device facilitates access by independent owner-operators with both iOS and Android phones. Installation takes just five minutes, and the device is up, running and in compliance.
“This is just an example of how we’re continuously working to make each product better for owner-operators in need of an ELD solution. Our research shows a large portion of owner-operators use iOS mobile devices,” said Mark Perini, vice-president of fleet business for Magellan. “It is important to us that we give all drivers, using both iOS and Android devices, access to the lowest-cost ELD solution.”
With Magellan’s solution, drivers are easily able to share their HOS logs with law enforcement straight from their mobile devices. An hours-of-service (HOS) management web portal allows for efficient HOS reports and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs), while on-device data transfer and co-driver support makes roadside inspections proceed more smoothly and efficiently. For owner-operators that run interstate operations, an International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) version is also available at an additional $30 one-time cost.
Independent drivers and owner-operators can buy the ELD option directly from Magellan or through Amazon.
