We recommend keeping your phone or tablet plugged into a charger for the best GPS coverage. If the battery is low, the app will check GPS location less often. The BigRoad app asks for access to your contacts and phone so you can easily send check-in messages, documents, and copies of your log using your contact manager. We do not copy or store any of your contact information.

Always room for improvement

I had to switch ELD providers for my small fleet after our current one gave us notice they were going out of business. A friend who had used Big Road with his employer recommended it I decided to give it a try as I didn’t have a lot of options I had knowledge about. So far I am impressed and very happy with the service. Still learning all it’s features and a little difficult for one of my drivers not so tech savvy but he’s getting it. Would like to see it save the password so I don’t have to type it in all the time when logging in (already have enough passwords to remember) and it needs more then 5 seconds before auto changing status. We have a lot of construction going on and it keeps putting me on duty not driving every time the Flagler stops us. I wish it would verify before changing automatically. What does it do in city driving?

Hi -Tthanks for reaching out to us! We always appreciate your suggestions and feedback. We have sent your requests to our Product team for consideration in a future release! The Dashlink automatically puts you into "On Duty, Not Driving" mode if it detects you have been stopped for 5 minutes and in normal city driving conditions, it should keep you on the Drive line unless you are experiencing heavy traffic. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-888-305-8777 x1 or email so we can find a solution!

Frustrating glitch

Update: Losing another star. Update still has same glitch plus more. Mainly the app crashing and freezing. I won’t even fall for call us again because they truly don’t care. I’m calling keep trucking now. They seem to have happy customers.

I have been a BigRoad user since before dash link was even available. The UI is the best out there. It loses stars only because of one major glitch. 2-3 times a week when I start my truck it changes to driving then immediately to on duty so it starts my 14hr clock. When it does this it gives me a missing odometer error. Last update says it fixed this but it didn’t. I know from other reviews they’re going to tell me to call or email which I will not because I have several times in the past year and a half with no luck in fixing it. A couple of times I was told no one else is experiencing this and I’m doing something wrong. The only thing I’m doing is starting my truck. If this problem is ever resolved they’ll get 5 stars. Everything is 5 star review ready but this glitch is a huge one. It can be avoided, I have discovered by signing out of the app when you start the truck every time then signing back in before you take off but that is a bandaid fix and shouldn’t be required.

Just ok

App removes your signature all the time then automatically drops you into on duty when you're not on duty then you're in violation the location marked is wrong at times I know the app uses google maps so unless Melvindale Mi moved to delta township Ohio something is certainly wrong Melvindale is nowhere near OH The app will give a violation warning for can't modify logs talked to big road about it and they're aware of that bug and are working a fix for it that was a year ago. There are times where it just stops working altogether not just with my truck but other trucks. When I mean stop working or will show you stop in Fort Wayne IN and your 6 hrs away and have been on duty the whole time. Won't record drive time at the time you mark on break it shows on break So you go to leave and guess what app takes your break away and now you're in violation and yes it was clearly marked and saved on the log. So clearly have some issues with this app that need to be fixed because if I get a ticket from dot because this app has a mind of its own I will be pist

Hi riback1. Sorry to hear you are not completely satisfied with your BigRoad application and service. If you are using AOBRD, the logs are pulling locations straight from Google Maps, based on the GPS co-ordinates your device is sending. ELD locations come directly from the FMCSA database, and are usually more specific. Many of the time users think it is not the town they are in, and that is sometimes correct, but it is showing the closest reference point that either Google or the FMCSA are pulling from. Hope that clarifies your situation but please give us a call at 1-888-305-8777 ext. 1 or send us an email at if you’d like further assistance.
