No. To be grandfathered, an AOBRD must be installed in a CMV prior to December 18, 2017. If a grandfathered AOBRD subsequently becomes inoperable, then that AOBRD must be replaced by an ELD.

Then please insert your credit card information and press "OK" to save it (picture 3).
FMCSA regulations require registration and certification of all ELDs. Any Electronic Logging Device that hasn't been registered and certified by the manufacturer is not FMCSA compliant. GPSTab ELD is compliant and can be found on the official list of registered devices: FMCSA list
If you are currently exempt from filling out logs - short haul / local driver - you don't need to get an ELD. Other exemptions include operating vehicles: made before 2000, classified as drive-away, classified as tow-away. You can find more information by visiting: FMCSA website
As of 11/06/2017, there has been no announcements from FMCSA about postponing initial compliance dates that were set when the ELD Mandate was released. However, the 10-hour out-of-service order associated with non-compliance with the Mandate will begin April 1, 2018.
If you are using GPSTab ELD - you don't have to physically print your logs for the inspector during inspection. As long as the ELD has a display that can be "brought to the officer", printing is not required. However, an enforcement official may request that additional information be provided by email, fax, or other similar means within 48 hours of the roadside inspection.
GPSTab ELD is designed to notify drivers, safety, and dispatchers of potential violations beforehand. Notification will be given 1 hour, 30 minutes, 15 minutes, and 5 minutes before the actual violation occurs - giving enough time to take action to prevent HOS violations.
GPSTab ELD is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) solution designed to work with smart cellular devices. While the device will connect and work with your phone, we do recommend running the application and connecting ELD to a tablet for ease of use and optimal performance.
We have made the evaluation of our product as attractive as we could. Risk-free 30-day money back guarantee. Monthly payments don't start until January 1st, 2018.
