The ELD technical standards are not clear on this subject other than to say “the driver must confirm the operating zone change.” Some ELDs (including those from Omnitracs) will automatically detect zone crossings and store the data until the driver acknowledges the event. At that point, the zone change will be inserted into the driver’s log at the date, time, and GPS location where the zone change actually occurred.
