Many users continue to report glitches in software, but the devices generally are working well and even the least technically savvy drivers have accepted them.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration put the ELD mandate, which automates driver hours-of-service monitoring, into effect on December 18 but asked state enforcement agencies to delay enforcement until April 1 to give operators additional time to work on technical difficulties, install equipment and train drivers.

After April 1 a driver found out of ELD compliance can be ordered out of service.
