1. Give the gift of more free time. With an Electronic Logging Device such as the VDO Roadlog, your loved one will save hours on paperwork each month by automating their log books. The VDO RoadLog has no monthly fees or contracts and is the only ELD with a built in printer which helps make road-side inspections a breeze. The printout immediately eliminates any technology compatibility issues with having to transfer/display data electronically at a roadside inspection. And, because it is a thermal printer, it never requires any ink.

Buy the VDO RoadLog now. 

Read our article on the VDO Road Log for more information on how it’s not only a great time saver, but it also helps with staying in compliance.


2. Safety in Numbers. Cold temperatures can lower tire pressure and cause tires to become under inflated. Not only can this lead to increased tire wear and lower gas mileage, but it also presents the risk of a blow out. A Tire Pressure Monitoring System automatically monitors the PSI and temperature of the tires to help the driver arrive safely at their destination.
