Linxup GPS Trackers are a Low-Cost Solution to New FMCSA Rules (HardBoiled by Newegg)

The fleet management industry is poised for dramatic change thanks to new rules authorised by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) for commercial vehicles. By the end of 2017, all commercial fleets will be required to have Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) installed in order to comply with requirements for automated hours of service (HOS) reporting. According to HardBoiled, Newegg's business blog, Linxup GPS trackers are one of the most affordable and effective solutions:

"By law, ELD data must be verifiable on the spot to law enforcement, either by electronic transmission from a central office or via Bluetooth or USB 2.0 from a driver's mobile device. Several truck GPS solutions have been put to market in the past few years. One such solution is the Linxup GPS Fleet Tracker, a simple tool and a low-cost way to comply with FMCSA and MAP-21 rules."
