    Hi Jim,
    Thanks for sharing your experience. Glad to hear XRS is working out well for you. The $55 up front is a one-time activation fee, but you’re right that XRS often waives this fee. The $55 per month includes an estimate of $10-15/mo for a data plan on your phone or tablet. We include this cost for all BYOD systems, to make it a better apples-to-apples comparison between BYOD and Dedicated systems that include their own data plan. You can read more about how we estimate total cost on the About Us page.

    Thanks again for the feedback on XRS

    Hi Mr. Kirmeier,
    Thanks for the feedback, and sorry to hear you’re having trouble with your company’s personal conveyance policy. Just so you know, the XRS system actually does allow your company to set different Personal Conveyance limits for different trucks. Your company may not be willing to do this as a matter of policy, but XRS does support it if they choose to do so. They could accomplish this by creating a sub-Organization for owner operator trucks within the XRS admin system. This owner Organization could then be given a longer Personal Conveyance limit. If they need help doing this, I’m sure Omnitracs support can assist them, or they’re welcome to contact us for help as well:

    Best of luck, thanks for writing

    Hi Rich, thanks for clarifying. The 8/2 split rule is certainly complicated, and its a source of confusion for lots of people. Thanks for the updated info!

    Hi Joe, thanks for sharing your experience on here. That’s a good question about the WiFi. Their tech support could probably tell you for sure, but I believe the WiFi you’re seeing is only used by the Blue Tree tablet itself to communicate with the device that reads your engine data. So you probably won’t be able to use its WiFi with your personal phone/tablet/laptop, unfortunately.

    Hi Mr. Lewis,
    Yeah XRS and many of the other bring-your-own-device ELDs are very easy to hook up yourself. You can essentially just plug the XRS device into your truck’s diagnostic port and set it on your dash and you’re done. You’ll also want to find some way to mount your Sprint phone/tablet so you can see it while you’re driving. If you have any other questions feel free to contact us:

    Hi Ted, thanks for your input. Glad to hear you’ve had a good experience with JJ Keller. They’re a good company with lots of experience in this industry.

    If you read the body of the review, you can get a bit more info about how we arrived at those pricing numbers. For one thing, when we price a BYOD solution, we include the typical $10-15/month cost of a cellular data plan. Not all fleets will be responsible for this cost, as they may ask their drivers to use their own personal device. But we include it for the sake of a fair apples-to-apples comparison.

    Thanks again for sharing your experience. Any other thoughts you have about the ELog product, we’d love to hear them.
