Description & Key Features (provided by Transflo)

Transflo is an authorized Geotab reseller, and it’s next-generation ELD T7 is a registered electronic logging device with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In a matter of minutes, you can plug it in and activate it.

The solution is available with your choice of monthly service plans. The Standard ELD plan allows you to manage hours of service (HOS), driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIR), and data for IFTA reporting. The Fleet Telematics plan includes all of the Standard ELD plan features plus complete fleet management capabilities like engine diagnostics, GPS-mapping, accident reconstruction, violation notifications, and more. Both plans cover the 48 continental U.S. states and all 10 Canadian provinces included in the IFTA jurisdictions.

The device is available on Apple iOS and Google Android systems and includes an installation harness, available in 6-pin, 9-pin, or 16-pin configurations at no extra charge. The Transflo ELD T7 also includes a cellular chip that automatically transmits data, avoiding hassle of device “pairing” or Bluetooth “bridging,” which can drain your battery and make your phone hot.

Best of all, if you’re already using Transflo Mobile to manage loads, scan documents, and access payroll statements, you can simply add HOS functionality to your menu after you register. Nearly 1 million drivers have downloaded Transflo’s mobile app! You can manage your whole workday in one app.

When you purchase a unit, you can have it shipped to you, or you can pick it up at a Pilot Flying J or Love’s travel location with a digital coupon code we give you. It’s that easy.

    Our fleet is using this app with the Transflo ELD. We have not had any issues with the devices and the drivers say the app is user friendly. Honestly the reason I chose to keep using Transflo is because their customer service has never let me down. It is a cost efficient ELD that provides DOT compliance with a desktop portal to keep track of hours and tracking of our drivers. We look to keep using Transflo as our fleet expands.

    I have issues with my device. If a driver forgets to logout you can’t go back to your mistakes. Personal use of the truck automatically logs you in along with yard movement. Hate this system is linked to your phone when app kills your data.

      If you forget to log out, you can go back in to the app and add in an OFF-Duty status at the correct time.

      For Personal Use, this counts as OFF Duty, but Yard Moves count as ON Duty. When the truck is powered down, it will take you out of whichever one you are using (FMCSA required). Keep in mind, turning the truck off stops the exemption. The next time you start the truck watch for a pop-up asking you to go back into PC/YM and proceed.

    Customer support is a joke. Transflo sends the 9 prong plug and mist need the 6 prong. They do not respond in a timely manner and I have trucks sitting for several days now. As soon as someone calls me back I will be finding out how to return the ones that I have to get Garmin!!!!!

    I give this ELD a 3.5, because it took some getting used to at first but I am sure all elds are the same. I chose Transflo because I used Mobile+ in the past for a different company and liked the app. Yes, I have had some issues with support but they always call me back within a day or so to help me with my problem. I don’t like the mandate, but this ELD gets me by and has some helpful features.

    Great overall device and they are adding features frequently. I saw that they just added Drivewyze and am considering getting that to avoid the dreaded inspections.

    BAD, BAD, SERVICE! EVERY TIME WE CALL IN FOR ISSUES WE GET DIFFERENT RESPONSE! BECAUSE OF THEM WE’VE HAD VIOLATIONS RAN OUT OF HOURS BECAUSE DRIVER WAS TOLD BY THE REPS TO DO SOMETHING AND ALL THEY HAVE TO SAY “WE’RE SORRY WE CAN NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT!” CHANGING ELD’S AND REPORTING THEM TO AUSTIN TEXAS! EVERY REP IS TRAINED THE SAME BUT, EACH ONE HAS A DIFFERENT RESPONSE OH, AND NOT TO MENTION THEY NEVER HAVE A MANAGER OR SUPERVISOR AVAILABLE TO REPORT THESE REPS! NO STARS OR RATING FOR US!

      Hello Norma,

      We spoke with our support team, and we are sorry for the confusion around YM logs. Yard Moves count as ON Duty and Personal Use counts as OFF Duty. When the truck is powered down, it will take you out of whichever one you are using (FMCSA required). Keep in mind, turning the truck off stops the exemption. The next time you start the truck watch for a pop-up asking you to go back into PC/YM and proceed.

      Wanted to share that we now have an in-app support feature can connect you directly to a support team member, and it is located at the top of the main menu in the blue header.

      Also, we have many videos and materials available for additional training, here https://www.transflo.com/transflo-eld-support-center/, just follow the prompts.

    Worst ELD ever have used 2 others worked fine. This logged on its own driving and the truck was stopped and did not move. Transflo is a joke.

    The slowest system I have ever used. Every time an update is put out the system crashes and leaves thousands of drivers unable to log. Unbelievably unreliable, you never know when it’s going to glitch and you’re going to be unable to log. Joke of a system.

    Hate! Hate! Hate! I am my dads dispatcher and you have no clue how many times my dad has had to call me to change his logs because they have changed on it’s own. My dad has been in a hotel and put SB before going in and in the morning he gets up and opens the door to find the ELD app has him on On for so many hours! It is crazy changes companies for ELD for sure!

    I’ve used big road with no problems, rand McNally few problems, transflo constant problems, very slow constantly restarting it. it will change duty status by itself. IT dept claims I’m in bad area must be in bad area 24-7. Takes minimum 5 minutes just to enter pretrip every morning never a day without issues

    The Transflo ELD is like the old America Online dialup connection….S L O W to connect, Drops out, Reboots, Logs you out of the system frequently so you have to enter your login info again, and often times, when you log off duty, it will change your duty status back to on duty within 10-20 seconds!!!
    You gotta really watch this sneaky system, it has screwed me over multiple times.
    As for customer service? I agree with everyone else….it sucks!

    Wow finally I can write something about this shitty software. We have 53 trucks and it is the most troublesome system I’ve ever tried. Im actually losing drivers over it. If they do not fix their products soon, I will dump them. Do not, I repeat, do not use this system, you will loose your sanity. You will turn grey haired or bald within 6 months. Good luck anyone who have this system.

    We have 3 trucks and this system is easy to use when it is working. But it always put you on duty when ur sleeping. It would put my driver thats in vacation on duty for no reason. Number one problem is when you are sleeping, wake up finding yourself on duty and violation for 8 hours. Systembwouldnjust randomly add other drivers on. We will cancel tomorrow and find another company.
