Section 4.9.1 of 49 CFR part 395, subpart B, Appendix A states than an electronic logging device (ELD) must support either telematics or local transfer for data transfer. Can an ELD offer web services and USB transfer?
The manufacturer must select at least one complete option, either telematics (email and web services) or local transfer (USB 2.0 and Bluetooth®). So long as one option, which includes both methods, is met, the ELD is compliant. Manufacturers may offer additional methods if they choose.
