I actually went with Samsara. I gotta say, these are fantastic and DOT compliant. If you didn’t get any yet consider Samsara.

I Have been using Samsara since last september installed on Ipads. It is very easy to use. We have had a few issues but over all nothing major.

My company has been using Samsara since the mandate and I've been content with it, does what it's supposed to.

My company does too. It crashes at least once a day for me. The UI is okay, but it’s a little slow to respond. I really dislike how it doesn’t cut your drive clock when your on duty remaining is less than drive so it says you have 7 hours left to drive, but only 5 left on duty. I also hate how it says violation even when in sleeper when a clock runs out. All minor, but ehh. I liked Peoplenet better.
