The ELD 2020 Plug-N-Play, Powered by Hutch, is the first and only 0.99 cents PAYD or “Pay as you Drive” ELD available in North America. In the following review, more information is presented on this PAYD type device.
The 2020 version of the device runs on a new wireless technology, where Bluetooth disconnect and LTE/5G disconnect plays no role, thus giving more accuracy in data. The ELD 2020 device has built-in AI technology, where it internally processes all ELD data to comply with the FMCSA Electronic logging device (ELD) regulation.
You pay only 0.99 cents when you drive the vehicle. No charges for PC, OFF, SB, or when the truck is parked for maintenance. This is the only ELD that will save you from costly DOT fines while being inexpensive at this time. I think this is a great option during the uncertain times of the COVID19 or Coronavirus Epidemic.
Due to the COVID19, trucking companies now have unpredictability in their business, forcing them to consider their costs. PAYD or “Pay as you Drive” option required no suspension or termination requests. You will only be charged when you Drive based on the data recorded by the GPS based device. PAYD is predictable and ensures the conservation of your money. Under the current condition, PAYD will be your natural preference as a mode of payment.
The ELD 2020 includes HOS Logs, Trip Inspections, Live GPS Tracking, IFTA, Multiple reports, and 24*7 Customer Support for only 0.99 cents per day, as you drive.
