PROS:
  • One of the most full-featured systems on the market
  • Great support
  • Familiar to many drivers

CONS:
  • Expensive
  • Fairly lengthy install process


Trimble is arguably the premier fleet management system on the market. They have been doing trucking telematics since 1994, and started offering e-logs nearly 15 years ago, before anyone ever heard the term “ELD”. They’ve had a lot of time to get their solutions right, and they’ve done so. Their hardware is high quality and reliable. Their platform is loaded with great features, yet remains simple and user-friendly for the driver. And their in-house support team (based in Minnesota) is one of the most well trained and helpful in the business.

The hardware comes in a few varieties, including several consumer grade android tablet options. But their flagship product is the Display.4 proprietary tablet. Compared to many of their competitors the touchscreen is easy to use, the menus are simple to understand, and the device has a very low rate of failure. On the back-office side, an endless slew of reports and tools give you powerful ways to track performance and manage your fleet. Trimble is also one of the few dedicated systems on the market to support 4G LTE cellular communication.

Beyond the basic e-logs and messaging functions are a host of other available systems you can utilize as needed. Monitor engine status, fuel consumption, fault codes, and tire pressure. Enable built in ALK CoPilot navigation for drivers. Integrate multi-directional video cameras. Set up real-time speeding and safety alerts. The list goes on and on. Few other vendors have such a wide range of additional features to bring value to your investment. With all these enterprise-grade features, Trimble is used by some of the largest and most successful fleets in the industry.

But of course, all these great features and high quality components do come with a price tag. The up-front hardware price per unit is around $1100, making it one of the highest initial-cost systems in the industry. Discounts and financing are available, but no matter how your slice it, with Trimble you are paying for the premium option. But, if your budget supports it, and you want to position your fleet with a best-in-class solution that goes way beyond just electronic logs, you really can’t do better than Trimble.

    If I could give negative stars, I would. We have been with Peoplenet for years, but their newest ELD is the worst piece of technology I have bought since a batch of 10 Freightliner Centuries in the late 90s. The amount of time our drivers have had to sit on hold waiting for fixes is overwhelming. We have also racked up multiple CSA points on countless amounts of violations due to their inoperable equipment with no end in sight. If anyone has a pending class action suit against Peoplenet (Trimble) or is interested in starting one, please email me at aaron@ormsby.com. We are a 70 truck fleet in the St Louis area.

    This system is down more then its up, We can’t deal with it anymore as our drivers are on paper logs more then there on ELD and we are in the process of getting out of the contract and going with the new up and comer Isaac Instruments out of Montreal Quebec, They have put driver friendliness ahead of everything else and still meet ELD Rules perfectly, super simple easy to use and 98.8% uptime the other 1.2% was well notified planned outages to make there system better.

    I know this isn’t the place to Promote but they are taking our PeopleNet headaches away one truck at a time.

    It is hard to believe a Trimble system could be so bad…we own $7-800,000 in Trimble construction grade control equipment. Would not trade it for anything. This however…. The ELD is awful. Service awful. Time of reply awful.
    I would not recommend. We are negotiating our way out of the contract currently.

    Peoplenet before the ELD update was pretty easy and straightforward since then this is the most frustrating steaming pile of shit I’ve ever seen.
    The entire ELD update looks like 12 year olds from India programmed it.
    The amount of money this is costing my company is unreal

    Absolutely horrible! The learning curve for the new eld units is ridiculous, especially for drivers who have very little computer skills. Couple that with the fact that these new led units freeze up, shut down, lose connection on a regular basis through the company fleet. Many drivers are really frustrated. And then there’s the driver facing camera…
    Bottom line, IT’S A PIECE OF CRAP!

    People net took a pretty good system as the old aobrd and changed it to the new ELD format and completely screwed it up. starting with its inability to accept login’s on the first attempt instead you now need to login between 3 & 10 times. Not staying in yard moves until the driver changes duty status, going from not driving to driving while sitting still, needing 5-6 minutes to change to on duty from driving. By my estimates with several drops & in route inspections each day it is reducing my drive time over an hour each day which costs me in lost earnings. What a screwed up expensive piece of junk!!!

    This is, without a doubt, the most user- Unfriendly device I have ever had to use. The very first thing I noticed when we switched to these is that the screen reflects everything so much as to be unusable if the Sun is out. On the Messages side, while it is easier to use a wireless keyboard (bought at the driver’s own expense), you still also have to use the touch screen. You have to tab or touch to advance the cursor. You have to dial in some things, time, etc. Times are a mix of 24 hr & AM/PM. So many extra steps are needed to just to send a free-form message. Needlessly complicated.
    On the Log side, we can’t tell at a glance how long we’ve been in our current status, how many miles driven for the day. But it’s so very important to know our MPG isn’t it? Trailer & load info is 2 different tabs, pages & extra steps. Not only that, but you must begin Duty to enter that info. Why? Figuring total duty hours for the day is like going back to paper logs, harder now because we have to add minutes instead of 1/4, 1/2 & 3/4. To find your miles for the day, you have to scroll thru the small print on the Details page. Some of us have old eyes. It does not show our last 8 days on one page. It does not show many hours we gain at midnight. Basically, we have to do everything on paper like we used to except draw the lines. This is the most useless & over- complicated piece of crap that’s been forced on us drivers. It is plain as day that whoever thought this up had never had the first clue of what drivers need. I have been tempted to accidently drop it out the window at 65mph, & know many other drivers feel the same. I wouldn’t be surprised if my or any trucking company broke the contract to escape from it. It’s worthless.

    As a pd4 for AORBD just ok.
    Decided to equip our fleet with Samsung tablets for ELD use thinking most drivers could navigate it.
    They claimed the switch over to ELD would be easy.
    After attending a workshop at corporate in MN. what a nightmare. Migrate this,create terminals,licence things,make driver profiles, the list goes on. YES I didn’t expect one mouse click and our 225 truck fleet would be done but what a waste of man hours. Our company is only 180 miles away and would be a $ 1,800 plus visit to maybe get us to stream line this transition!!!!!
    Drivers can’t see what hours picking up at midnight or a 7 day graph! Yes you can go back to your 7th day and look but I did this on a recap sheet while on paper it 2020 folks. And talk about device malfunctions. Puts into drive while the truck is keyed off and guy is in sleeper and messed up at lot of breaks and then gets the driver jacked up. Some of the CSR reps are very good alot want to get you off the phone and blame it on your 3 year old trucks we have and always tell drivers your “company ” has to fix this so we at back office hold for hours and it is something on their end.
    ALWAYS tell your drivers to get a case number too so when you call you can document it that they did not attempt to fix problem.
    Having drivers restart these tablets so much for it to work I am pretty sure the power button will break next.
    I waited till today Dec. 15th to post my comments just to be fair in case things got better but No. Plus we have several guys on the 100 mile radius we struggle with to get bugs worked out with.
    Thanks to this site and other carriers we Network with we will be test driving other providers equipment after the 1st of the year.
    IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS COMPLEX

      As a driver I thought the AOBRDs were good, was able to get/see the information I needed quickly. Wouldn’t it have been easier and more cost effective to update the software to be compliant, instead of writing all new software that still not ready?

    Customer Service has been a joke, 2 hour wait it is just getting ridiculous. I can’t believe such a great company has gone down hill sooo fast. I wouldn’t recommend Peoplenet the experience has been just awful. You try to get a hold of your rep and she says call customer service so you call customer service and they tell you to call your rep. Get it together people. I have drivers waiting on the new ELD to work properly and can get no assistance..

      This system isn’t even worth the millisecond it takes to push the rating star seems plus I can’t only highlight the very top corner of 1 of em. Your system sucks go back rethink your strategies to make the system give everyone their monies back and apologize.
      As a driver and a trainer as will I went to classes and this system blow ( I will leave out what I think it blows which could anything from a whistle to a trumpet so don’t just assume I’m being derogatory, ) but yeah blow’s. Can’t use it going down the road, for crying out loud we’re adults should be able to scroll to see hours. It’s mounted four fck sake not hand held. No icons for pre post trip, no unload no reload or customer interaction icons. You people net Trimble company can’t even have the American trucker nation eld mandate compliant by deadline. Not like our job is stressful enough..
      Answer your m’fer phones and don’t place the people that support your company on hold for hours. Get your head out of the storks hole arms get this thing right

    Biggest piece of garbage. Takes 20 minutes to log out sometimes. Should be put out of business. Using peoplenet for elogs and fleet management is like navigating Chicago in a truck using GPS made for a car. The only people who are dumb enough to use this system are people who don’t know any better. I wish it would get cancer and die. If it was up to me I would smash that piece of shit and throw it out the window and then mail the filthy pieces back to Trimble.

    Absolute worst piece of hardware I’ve ever had the misforture of working with. At this point, we’re pursuing legal options to get out of contract with them, as fully 1/3 of our fleet is non working, non compliant, and they have zero gumption to help us. But oh no, better not miss a payment to them!!! Most of my emails to our “customer service (ha what a joke) rep go unanswered, and all we get are “hardware problem, needs replacement”….of course…more money in their pocket…I wouldn’t recommend this platform to our biggest enemy competitor.. Junk…avoid at all costs. I’ve had drivers QUIT because this was the platform we used….FMCSA needs to revoke their “certified” status. I have sent several emails to FMCSA about issues with their system. How about negative 5 stars

    Been with PeopleNet for about 4 years. We are a smaller company, sometimes feel like customer service has forgotten about smaller fleets.
    Started out good but has declined rapidly the last 2 years. We don’t know who our current customer rep is, hasn’t reached out or offered help. Decent system with it’s fair share of problems, some seem to be fixed in a timely manner, some not. We have mostly PD.4’s but also have some tablets. Have issues with both. Not sure it’s worth the money and looking for other solutions.

    Has the potential of being a good device if it actually worked. My company has spent endless days and hours working on 3 installed units trying to troubleshoot why it won’t communicate. For the amount of money and time wasted they are considered a heavy paperweight. I am less then pleased with these devices and the amount of time it’s taken for them to still not work!

    This quite possibly the worst electronic communication device I’ve used in 26 years. I’ve used Motorola and Qualcomm before the ELD mandate, but this “older version” ELD sucks! Company/shop likes it because it is durable and doesn’t seem to “malfunction ” but it regularly doesn’t accept my input when I change my duty status. No one should have to press an input key 4-5 times to change thier duty status, just to crawl back into the truck and see you’ve not been switched to “off-duty” for a 34-hour restart after you’ve been out of the truck for a day and a half! I’m tired of having to ask my safety manager to correct it and the have him warn me that at the end of 2019, he’ll no longer be allowed to correct it! This model is a loser for sure!

    Our company has been running PeopleNet since 2013. We were a pilot program in our area using the g3 OBC and the PD4 display. Being the Safety and Compliance Manager at our company, it is very important to us to have the tech support and backing of of a Professional Customer Manager which we have had since the beginning. My company has zero HOS violations thanks to the support we get from our Customer Manager and the ease of use for our drivers. We are currently in the process of switching our fleet to the PMG with a completion date of August 15 2018 as our target. I would have given PeopleNet a 5 star if i were to know when the PD4 ELD software will be available. This makes us a bit nervous because some the types of deliveries we make are in remote areas where the 4G LTE network would really be helpful. I, as of this date cannot get an answer from PeopleNet when the software will be available. Hopefully before the phone companies start to reduce service. This in it’s self should be PeopleNet’s top priority.

      Rich, has your company changed it’s PD4’s over to ELD’s yet? Or have you switched to a different in cab display this past year. From what I have read, the PD4 doesn’t have an ELD mode but is compatible so I’m not really sure what that means.

    Can’t even give them 1/2 star. We have the PD.4’s in our trucks. They freeze up all the time. Admin computers say no service available. When I try to work with support, they keep saying that the problems that I contact them about are resolved, even though they are not, so I have to reply and reopen the issue each time. Random updates and migrations to servers without advance warning to customers. Has anyone tried to get a per unit per hour/day credit from them every time there is an issue? DO NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL.

    PeopleNet is not good at building lasting relationships with businesses who need their products. When we first started working with the company it wasn’t any issue getting individuals in their sales team to contact our company for payment and what they called training. They sent over the equipment about 60 days prior to us being able to connect it in our truck and this was specified during the initial sales call. We spent additional money having our truck wired for their equipment from the factory and tested by licensed techs prior to pickup to ensure everything was working properly in the wiring. When it came time to install the tablet and docking station in the truck it would not charge or connect to the network. We called the support team and they mentioned that we would need to do the required update on the tablet and then everything should work accordingly, although this was not the case. We called the customer care center who informed us that they would send out new equipment after the truck and equipment was tested from the dealer. We complied with this and everything tested with power going all the way to the dock and the dock putting out nothing. We received the new equipment and it was the same case, equipment didn’t work. We called again and told them that this was the case and we were told that it was hard for them to believe that two sets of equipment could be faulty and that the problem must be on our end and something must be wrong with the truck or wiring. I informed PeopleNet that we would be discontinuing our business relationship with them and that I didn’t appreciate having our integrity called in to question and that I would not be paying the outstanding invoices I had with them, one of which was for a month of service that we hadn’t even been able to use at all. It was approximately 4 days before someone responded back to what I had sent and said that an option that I had at this time would be to have one of their licensed techs come out and install the equipment, which was not an option that was given to us when we started this process and that if we did not pay for the outstanding invoices they would negatively reflect on our credit scores. I asked to have a member of their management team connect with us. Someone did eventually call us but it was approximately another 3 days later. I expressed my concern with all the issues we had and let them know that I would be ending our business relationship with them at this time. I expressed concern that I was paying for services and equipment that we had not been able to use the entire time it was in our possession. I was informed that since the equipment had been in my possession for more than 30 days that I would not be receiving a refund for that and it was mine to keep. I am not sure why I would want to keep equipment that is faulty and does not work. They did take off the month of service that I did not receive but it was our responsibility to pay for the $1600 or so that it cost for the equipment and what they call the on-boarding process. Seems like an awful lot of money to pay for something that doesn’t work and their customer service and sales team dodge your calls when there is an issue to be brought to the table but not when they are trying to get you to sign a contract.

    Been using it a week or so with Ryder truck and from day one its been hit or miss. At first it didn’t work correctly, kept searching for connections or during my travel would have to re-establish a connection a lot. Seems to up date slowly and in my truck its a add on temporary install sitting in big tackle box like system that would be a projectile in any sort of accident or panic stop. Trying to get help is like non existent the people at Ryder shops seem to not be any more up to speed then myself on it. I think most of these devices would work better if they focused more on the basics of logging and less on offering worthless add on stuff. Just log what duty status I am on and keep up with my HOS and skip the rest. Mostly because it doesn’t work well anyway.

    Our company has had PeopleNet for 3 years. We do not like it at all. The customer service is absolutely the worst by far. Good luck in them helping you when you have issues. If you call, you will be on hold for 20 minutes or longer only to get someone that is clueless and not able to resolve the issue. Not only that they will want to blame your IT in house people on the issue. Highly DO NOT recommend getting this devise. You will regret it.

    Absolutely the worst customer service you could ever experience, bar none. Sign up and keep your monthly payments on time is all they are concerned with. Using over 500 of them and have decided to look elsewhere even with though it’s a three year commitment…we will eat the the $ left in the contract. Seriously, that’s how bad it is. It’s good hardware/software but has it’s day’s where you need someone to act on an issue…they don’t.

    Out of all the systems, we looked at PeopleNet’s display was the easiest for my drivers to understand & use. We chose them because of their depth of integration to our TMS solution and driver acceptance. Their support team was very easy to work.

    Malfunctioning devices, bureaucratic handling of business. They will lock you up in contract even if you don’t like the service you will end up paying for it. They don’t resolve technical issues, when problems occur no matter how urgent is the issue they will keep answering to you as “we are elevating the issue to our engineering team”. They don’t get back to you, and when they do they don’t resolve it and act like you are the only one having these problems. Don’t waste your time.

    antiquated system, not a user friendly web portal interface, very expensive, look for other options that offer more advanced technology at a much lower cost to deploy. Former customer that is now much happier with another provider.

      My Experience with people net is that it is way off with its geo nets, wrong Address information that doesn’t get up dated, Glitches that waste more Driver and dispatcher time then it’s worth. My view is that it is just a glorified Idle Snitch that understands nothing about the weather Drivers Idle in for warmth or air conditioning. Just another unnecessary expense riding on the coat tails of Drivers hard work. I will never work for another company that uses people net!

      I see a comment that it’s driver friendly. Not really.

      The application insists on drivers entering information multiple times. There are automated features that guide drivers for data entry and others that are not.

      The GUI feels like it is in the preliminary stages of development and has not been designed as an integrated tool that drivers can easily work with in a way that it is not a distraction. I suspect most development time is spent keeping the accounting and safety folks happy.

      I got ideas how the GUI could be much much better. If I can imagine it, I’m sure the brain trust at people can too. It’s time to fix up the GUI for drivers peoplenet!!
