This device by itself is NOT an approved substitute for logbook recording requirements under Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. Drivers should comply with all applicable federal and state hours-of-service requirements. When integrated with a Garmin eLog™ compliant Electronic Logging Device (ELD), the Garmin eLog device enables a motor carrier to comply with hours of service logging and break requirements. For more information, or to purchase a Garmin eLog device, go to garmin.com/elog.
When the break planning feature is enabled, the device notifies you one hour before suggested break times and drive hour limits and suggests break locations on your route. You can use this feature to keep track of your working hours, which may help you comply with safety regulations.
