Geotab Connected by Mack is a cloud-based platform and requires no additional installation or hardware on 2015 and newer Mack truck models.

Included in Geotab Connected is Geotab Drive, an ELD application launched by Mack in 2019 which leverages Geotab’s cloud computing. The device, factory-installed in every Mack vehicle, sends engine and positional data to the cloud, which then generates automatic duty status logs. The driver can access these through the Geotab Drive app on a mobile device.

The cloud enables reports for Hours of Service, Records of Duty Status and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports. With no pairing process required, the vehicle will continue to record data regardless of the connection status of the mobile unit, the company says. Wireless interference will not impact reporting, the company added.
