What does the F-ELD record?

Below we include a brief summary of what the ONE20 F-ELD records in different situations. The ONE20 F-ELD records the information that it is legally required to record to keep drivers in compliance. If we don't need to gather information; we don't. We respect your privacy. 

For more detailed information on what ELDs are required to record to keep users in compliance with the FMCSA's mandate, please refer to the FMCSA's documentation.
