GPS navigation firm Magellan has announced it has self-certified its electronic logging device hours-of-service tracking solution in accordance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration guidelines.

By self-certifying and registering an ELD solution with FMCSA, the company is confirming that it will comply with the upcoming ELD mandate by the deadline on Dec. 18, 2017.

“We put our HOS solution through rigorous testing as outlined in the FMCSA’s ELD Final Rule, and are happy to announce the Magellan HOS solution has been found compliant and registered on the FMCSA website,” said Mark Perini, vice president of fleet business for Magellan.

Magellan’s HOS/ELD solution offers automated logging tools, reports, and alerts to keep drivers on time and in compliance. An HOS management web portal allows for HOS, DVIR, and IFTA reports, while on-device data transfer and co-driver support can help roadside inspections run more smoothly and efficiently.

This is available alongside Magellan’s commercial fleet navigation software with truck-specific map data and industry-leading routing engine, to provide a safety-focused navigation experience to all truck carriers. 

The HOS solution is available on Magellan’s fleet navigators-- rugged devices that are dust-proof, highly water resistant, and both shake- and drop-resistant. The solution is also available for select Samsung devices such as the Tab E, Note 5, S7, and S8.
