Switching from

Great, you're in right place. Linxup's experts can get you switched over so that your vehicles are in complete compliance with an easy-to-use, affordable ELD solution.

AOBRDs (automatic on-board recording devices) are similar to ELDs (electronic logging devices) in that they record hours-of-service – they just don't compile or display as much data or detail as an ELD.

Contact Linxup if you have questions about transitioning from AOBRDs to ELDs and the many ways you can benefit from greater transparency and improved data gathering.

An electronic logging device (ELD) is electronic hardware that is attached to a commercial motor vehicle engine to record driving hours. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) requires ELDs in commercial vehicles meeting certain criteria to comply with federal rules regarding hours of service.
Most commercial carriers and drivers, including both commercial buses and trucks and those who are Canada- or Mexico-domiciled are required by the FMCSA to be ELD equipped. We have a brief quiz that will help you determine if you need an ELD for your vehicles and drivers.
"Vehicles and drivers who fall under the FMCSA mandate must have an FMCSA certified electronic logging device connected to their vehicle. In addition, they must carry:
  • A user’s manual for the driver describing how to operate the ELD;
  • An instruction sheet describing the data transfer mechanisms supported by the ELD and step-by-step instructions to produce and transfer the driver’s hours-of-service records to an authorized safety official;
  • An instruction sheet for the driver describing ELD malfunction reporting requirements and recordkeeping procedures during ELD malfunctions; and
  • A supply of blank driver’s records of duty status (RODS) graph-grids sufficient to record the driver’s duty status and other related information for a minimum of 8 days."
AOBRDs were an early version of ELDs and record less information. The key differences between the systems are that ELDs:
  1. Identify information on the driver, carrier, and vehicle, including engine status, and vehicle malfunctions.
  2. Automatically, rather than manually, record intervals, engine and duty status, yard moves, etc.
  3. Do not allow editing of automatically recorded events but do allow them to be annotated.
  4. Display edit history to DOT inspectors.
AOBRDs were grandfathered into the ELD mandate and are required to be switched to full ELD solutions by December 16, 2019.
No. Our solution comes with a dedicated tablet. This ensures timely software updates are automatically downloaded — keeping the Linxup ELD system in compliance with FMCSA regulations — and prevents the need for drivers to use personal cellular data to meet ELD requirements.
No! Our solution takes minutes to install.
Simply plug in the JBus or OBD GPS tracker and turn on the dedicated tablet. Bluetooth will sync the tablet to the vehicle. The intuitive software walks the driver through management of shipments, trailers, inspection reports, and duty status. The web portal allows administrators and fleet managers to view and update hours of service reports, inspection reports, and resolve driver conflicts. Administrators can also manage terminals and add and delete drivers. Over the air software updates ensure continual FMCSA compliance.
GPS and engine data is queried every 5 to 10 seconds.
Linxup ELD solutions do not come with mounting gear but do include all necessary cables to connect to the JBus or OBD ports of the vehicle.
FMCSA requirements for ELD certification include proving that the system is tamper proof. Captured data includes code that is verified by law enforcement software to ensure authenticity.
Linxup offers IFTA as an additional add-on of our ELD packages.
