San Dimas, CA, August 21, 2017 – Magellan®, a leader in GPS navigation solutions, announced today that its commercial-grade truck navigation and Electronic Logging Device (ELD)-compliant Hours of Service (HOS) tracking solution is now Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) certified and listed on the FMCSA online registry. Magellan’s ELD solution is critical for the trucking industry, since the government has mandated all truck drivers track their hours of service logs using an ELD by December 18, 2017.
Last September, the FMCSA guided truck operators with this statement, “Prior to purchasing an ELD, carriers and drivers should confirm that the device is certified and registered with FMCSA and listed at this website: https://3pdp.fmcsa.dot.gov/ELD/ELDList.aspx. Devices not vendor-certified by manufacturers and registered with FMCSA may not be compliant with the FMCSRs.”
Magellan’s HOS/ELD solution offers automated logging tools, reports and alerts to keep drivers on time and in compliance. An HOS management web portal allows for efficient HOS, DVIR and IFTA reports, while on-device data transfer and co-driver support makes roadside inspections run more smoothly and efficiently. All of this alongside Magellan’s commercial fleet navigation software with truck-specific map data and industry-leading routing engine, to provide a safety-focused navigation experience to all truck carriers.
“We put our HOS solution through rigorous testing as outlined in the FMCSA’s ELD Final Rule, and are happy to announce the Magellan HOS solution has been found compliant and registered on the FMCSA website,” said Mark Perini, vice president of Fleet Business for Magellan.
The HOS solution is available on Magellan’s fleet navigators, rugged devices that are completely dust-proof, highly water resistant, and both shake and drop resistant, as well as offering highly-accurate GPS data, as well as on select Samsung devices such as: Tab E, Note 5, S7 and S8.
The Magellan HOS/ELD solution will be on display at the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) in Dallas, Texas, August 24-26, 2017.
