What is the very best "black box" on the road for the money?
(Salt Lake City, Utah)
We're a small fleet needing to go to black boxes for the upcoming FMCSA ruling -- even though it's been extended, we want to be prepared! Still, it's an expensive proposition. Could you let me and your other followers know what your drivers have experienced as the best of the best for th dollar? Thanks! @girluvsrigs
Response from Vicki:
Thanks for asking a question through our site.
Yours is the first question we've ever received from a trucking company looking to save money and we are honored to serve you as best we can.
Mike and I have no experience in using a "black box" (aka "electronic on-board recorder or EOBR) in trucking, so in that regard we cannot even offer a product review of our own.
So, I'll publish this page in the hopes that other professional truck drivers will see it and respond with a product review of their own, listing such things as:
* brand and model;
* price (by itself);
* installation costs;
* quality of service;
* ease of use;
* durability; and
* other descriptions.
Hopefully, money-conscious drivers will provide their feedback to give you an idea as to which products they recommend for outfitting your fleet's trucks.
For all of your drivers, we wish them safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.
