All trolls aside, I once recorded 713 miles in 9h 18m drive time. Dont ask me how but that's what the qualcomm said. Probably a recording error or something especially with a governed truck.

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

Got 705 in an 11 hr set in April. Tractor governed at somewhere north of divide by zero. Sunday drive with Korona traffic with 65 and 70 mph limits, only construction zone reductions were "when workers present" and "when flashing". Feasible, when all the Fates smile upon you.

WOWZ~!!! NICE DAY, FEANOR~!

Are your HOS different up there, in the Great North?!? confused.gif

Nice ELD, as well. Hubby's Qualcomm isn't that easy to understand, haha!

Haha yeah that's the furthest I've ever gone in a shift. This troll thread provided the perfect excuse to brag 🤣

And yes Canada HOS allows 13 hours driving, 16 workday and no 30min break required. My truck is governed at an awkward 72mph.

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I average 670 to 675 a day with a truck governed at 68 and 70 for 5min every hour passing...so definitely with a slightly faster truck
