PeopleNet’s new Android-powered PD.5 might be the one you’ve been searching for.
Many truckers were shocked by the new ELD mandate passed in late December of 2015. Even more became uncomfortable in their attempt to comply with it after the mandatory installation of ELD’s in each commercial truck just months ago.
No one enjoys having the government track their every move. However, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration felt that the ELD’s automatic documentation was far sufficient to the pen and paper many truckers had used previously.
Whether you’re a fan or not, every commercial carrier must have an ELD installed in the dashboard. In addition, the device replaces the need for individual Record of Duty Status (RODS). Also, it shares similar features with both electronic on-boarding devices (EOBRs) and automatic on-boarding devices (AOBRDs).
However, the benefit of many ELDs goes far beyond the data collected through EOBRs and AOBRDs.
While other logging devices only look at speed and time spent driving, ELDs also focuses on driver behavior such as hard braking or idling. Many devices also include mapping features for easier navigation as well as automatic updates on a driver’s status to dispatch.
As the leading provider in fleet mobility technology, PeopleNet always aims to deliver the highest quality devices for their customers. Their newest toy, the PD.5, is no exception. Made with truckers in mind, the electric logging device accomplishes everything on the road. Their mounted display was made specifically for the trials of trucking, while still incorporating everything you could ever need.
In the words of PeopleNet, “The ELD mandate is a complicated thing. Our electronic logging devices help you simplify it.”
The new PD.5 runs on the familiar Android LCD display, which makes navigating this device easier than ever.
It is super lightweight, allowing for easy use both inside and outside of your cab. Plus, a higher bandwidth of 20MHz will make sure every mile you drive is logged quickly.
No matter if you’re dropping off in the city or traveling through the rural countryside, you can ensure that your ELD is connected and secure.
In addition, the PD.5 includes other features, such as Bluetooth, a six-hour battery life, 16GBs, and a case.
