Under section 18.104.22.168 of 49 CFR part 395, subpart B, Appendix A, if an electronic logging device (ELD) cannot produce a printout for use at roadside inspection, the display must be designed so that it can be reasonably viewed from outside the commercial motor vehicle (CMV). That may require the device to be untethered from its mount or connected in a manner that would allow it to be passed outside of the vehicle for a reasonable distance.
