BigRoad releases ELD

Jan. 21, 2015

BigRoad has announced the release of DashLink, an electronic logging device.

“We wanted to give the industry the easiest and most flexible way to get started with engine-connected electronic logs,” said Terry Frey, BigRoad co-founder and COO. “Unlike existing embedded on-board recorders (EOBRs), we created DashLink so it can be installed in seconds for a very low cost.  And it requires no contract to get started.” 

DashLink is fully compliant with US AOBRD (395.15) and Canadian Electronic Recording Device (SOR-2005 313) regulations, the company said. It works in conjunction with the BigRoad mobile app to record driving time. The DashLink device is plugged into the truck’s diagnostic port (or otherwise connected to the vehicle’s engine), and the BigRoad app is then used to configure the vehicle for use in engine-connected mode.  

“DashLink takes our electronic logbook solution to the next level of accuracy and compliance,” said Frey.  “Logs are easier to create because the truck and its odometer values are recorded automatically, and there’s always an accurate record of driving time.  There’s no need for a printer in the truck, and the accurate, automated record-keeping streamlines roadside inspections and back office audits.” 

BigRoad DashLink is currently available for Android mobile devices, and to use DashLink, drivers must be running the BigRoad Android mobile app with DashLink support.
