We recommend keeping your phone or tablet plugged into a charger for the best GPS coverage. If the battery is low, the app will check GPS location less often.

Just ok

App removes your signature all the time then automatically drops you into on duty when you're not on duty then you're in violation the location marked is wrong at times I know the app uses google maps so unless Melvindale Mi moved to delta township Ohio something is certainly wrong Melvindale is nowhere near OH The app will give a violation warning for can't modify logs talked to big road about it and they're aware of that bug and are working a fix for it that was a year ago. There are times where it just stops working altogether not just with my truck but other trucks. When I mean stop working or will show you stop in Fort Wayne IN and your 6 hrs away and have been on duty the whole time. Won't record drive time at the time you mark on break it shows on break So you go to leave and guess what app takes your break away and now you're in violation and yes it was clearly marked and saved on the log. So clearly have some issues with this app that need to be fixed because if I get a ticket from dot because this app has a mind of its own I will be pist

Hi riback1. Sorry to hear you are not completely satisfied with your BigRoad application and service. If you are using AOBRD, the logs are pulling locations straight from Google Maps, based on the GPS co-ordinates your device is sending. ELD locations come directly from the FMCSA database, and are usually more specific. Many of the time users think it is not the town they are in, and that is sometimes correct, but it is showing the closest reference point that either Google or the FMCSA are pulling from. Hope that clarifies your situation but please give us a call at 1-888-305-8777 ext. 1 or send us an email at if you’d like further assistance.

It simply works.... period

You don’t have to worry about the complicated loop holes to gain those few extra hours. This program knows the rules, and allows you to squeeze the most out of the law, while still staying compliant.

I’m a Texas driver where you are still allowed to gain time over the standard 15 hour day. This program allows for that and does it with ease.

No more 15 minute intervals. This program logs your activity down to the second. If you stop at 2:07 pm, that is exactly what it will read. No more bumping it up to 2:15 to make the graph work correctly.

It even allows for yard move and personal conveyance without charging drive time. It has thought of everything. Great work guys.

Using the “AOBRD” version, you can edit in time for on duty or sleeper birth, that you may have forgotten to previously add. This is a very helpful feature.

It does not allow you to modify any drive time, which makes it DOT compliant, and the troopers really seem to favor this program over other options.

I have been in touch with the developer team via Facebook Messenger. They were very open to communication, and said they would look into implementing my suggestions.

I’ve used a lot of log book app’s, and I have not found one more accurate and driver friendly than Big Road. Get it today and use it for your ELD mandate.
