To comply with the ELD mandate, fleet managers can opt to have hardware installed in a vehicle or use handheld devices. FMCSA allows an electronic logging device to be on a smartphone and other wireless devices. When choosing a handheld device, you’ll be needing a ruggedized-enterprise device that has durability and can withstand harsh environmental conditions. Panasonic, Motorola, and Samsung offer some mobile device options for ELD such as the Zebra TC56, Panasonic Toughbook FZ-L1/FZ-T1, and Samsung Tab Active.
