Hassle-Free E-Logs for HOS Tracking
What makes Geotab Drive a class above the rest for HOS Tracking?
- Ease-of-use: the easiest way to track hours of service electronically, for drivers and fleet managers.
- Robust features: to give fleet managers the data they need to both comply with regulations and optimize their fleet.
- Industry-leading support: to help get your company on its way to tracking hours of service, the modern way.
- Registered ELD (Electronic Logging Device): our Geotab ELD is now a registered ELD with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in the United States.
Once the Drive app is linked with your Geotab fleet tracking unit, it automatically logs when the vehicle is moving. Yes, that means that the app automatically switches status from On Duty mode to Driving mode and vice versa. At the end of the day, the driver just verifies their log, and it’s sent to the fleet manager to sign off on them.
For advanced functionality and integration, the Geotab HOS system can be expanded with apps from the Geotab Marketplace, including the following:
The Compliance Advantage
Geotab Drive is compliant with all industry rules in the USA and Canada. Linking your Geotab GPS fleet tracking device and using the Geotab Drive app enables you to:
- Cut down on paperwork
- Reduce administration costs
- Minimize FMCSA violations
- Improve driver safety and efficiency
- Deliver real-time access to data-rich information
- Show up-to-date logbook information to law enforcement or the Department of Transportation
- Improve your CSA (compliance, safety, and accountability) safety ratings
Logging Hours of Service has always been a burden on your fleet drivers, but now with recent changes to regulations by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration), it’s also going to be mandatory to log them electronically. Make sure your drivers are compliant with regulations. Compliance with Geotab’s automatic onboard capabilities means safer driving in your fleet, and it saves fleet managers over 60 hours of man-time in administering driver logs.

How You Can Maintain Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting Today
Beyond automatic Hours of Service reporting, the Geotab Drive app also features electronic Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR).
The DVIR function of Geotab Drive incorporates a complete end-to-end inspection workflow, where drivers can select defects, add comments, review previous inspections, and can certify that the repair performed fixed the defect identified.
Reports will consist of inspections that show defects, who identified the defect, and who repaired it for future reference. Reports can also be conveniently sorted in in the Geotab dashboard to show all DVIRs, or just those with defects, those that have been repaired, or those that have been certified as repaired, which offers increased visibility for the health of your fleet of vehicles.
Under the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA), if a business operates heavy commercial vehicles like those in your fleet between states, they are required to track all fuel expenses and the distances travelled.
Via the Geotab GPS fleet tracking device and the Geotab Drive app, this can all be done automatically, saving your drivers time, and improving the accuracy of reporting!
