Help ELD, bypass app

Help Inc., the company behind the PrePass truck weigh station bypass system, has introduced Electronic Logging Device and mobile bypass applications.

The Electronic Logging Device operates as a Bring Your Own Device app for Android and iOS platforms, with a tablet or smartphone tethered to an OBDII device that’s plugged into a truck’s diagnostic port. It also offers Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports, central web-based reporting, and wireless Bluetooth connections for OBDII.

Meanwhile, the new Motion app expands weigh station bypass services, building on Help’s existing PrePass transponder-based service. That offers the potential of expanding to locations that don’t have PrePass infrastructure, the company says.
