Turn the Trucking ELD Mandate Into an Edge for Your Business
Don't waste time and money on technology that isn't suitable for your company. If your ELD has poor customer support, reliability issues, or is unable to connect with software that you use in your business, it will ultimately eat up your profits.
Your staff is busy with important tasks, and they don’t need an ELD that slows them down and makes life miserable. The right ELD should be a benefit to the entire business – something you’ll wish you purchased many years ago.
We researched many ELDs over the last 7 years. Until recently, we had not found one that we were happy with or could easily integrate with. Our standards were very high. We were looking into developing our own elog device… until we found Geotab.
eTrucks works with many ELD providers, but Geotab is the ELD we decided to officially partner with. eTrucks is an authorized reseller of Geotab.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does the Geotab trucking ELD come with a screen?
No. Instead, Geotab allows users to use their own smartphones or tablets as their own personal electronic logbook for truckers.
Electronic logging device compliance has never been easier, with the amount of ELD solutions available from Geotab. This is, without a doubt, the best ELD for trucks on the market today. Of all the ELD providers and ELD companies that we investigated, nothing seemed to come close to the capabilities of Geotab devices.
Will my Geotab ELD work when 3G is no longer available?
Yes. Unlike some other devices which will be affected by the shutdown of 3G networks during 2022… the GO9 devices are already 4G and 5G capable.
Always keep in mind, when evaluating electronic logs for truckers, that if you buy something old and out of date, they could very quickly be obsolete and not up to trucking ELD compliance standards. Geotab is fully compliant and capable with everything related to 3G sunsetting and the ELD mandates in Canada and the USA.
What kind of customer support is available?
Geotab has 24/7 customer support.
On top of that, you’ll have access to eTrucks customer support if you have any questions about how to use ELD solutions in relation to our fuel tax and compliance software. We aim to offer a full trucking compliance service that you can count on for any of your ELD or fuel tax needs.
Will the Geotab ELD record data when outside of network coverage?
Yes. Electronic logbooks for truckers must be completely accurate and Electronic Logging Device compliance requires data with no gaps. Geotab solves this by continuing to record on its memory card, even when out of network service. Geotab considers and follows every aspect of trucking ELD compliance.
Of all the ELD providers we are aware of, Geotab is the most reliable and overall best ELD for trucks that we’ve come across. They are one of the oldest and most experienced ELD companies around. No other ELD will have you this well-equipped for the ELD mandate Canada and the USA.
Does the Geotab ELD have a WIFI hotspot capability?
Yes, the GO9+ has WIFI hotspot capability – making ELD compliance easier on your data than other options.
When you are evaluating trucking compliance services and tools, always keep in mind how they will be used in daily operations. With the Canadian ELD mandate on the horizon, companies everywhere are scrambling to find a suitable ELD. If data is a concern, they should make sure to invest in an ELD solution with hotspot capabilities.
How reliable is the hardware?
This is actually one of the strongest points in Geotab’s favor. No other trucking compliance services or ELD company has an equal reputation for quality and reliability.
They have been developing eld solutions and other telematics for over 22 years – the amount of experience is unmatched by other ELD companies in the industry. They have an electronic logging device fail rate of less than 0.01%.
How is the security?
A hot topic lately is how ELDs, or even trucks, could be potential targets for “hacking.” Supposedly, for most trucks, ELDs, and their WIFI environment, it could be about as simple as hacking into the WIFI network of your local coffee shop.
Not with Geotab – they have taken extra steps to avoid this risk and the security is excellent. The way Geotab has set up their hardware, the tablet does not have to communicate with the trucking ELD receiver or GO9 device.
Geotab is the first Electronic Logging Device company to receive FIPS 140-2 validated data encryption. In fact, they basically “wrote the book” on what engineering standards all manufacturers of OBD devices need to follow, globally.
