EOBR Costs vs. Benefits
There has been much debate from both sides of the EOBR debate about the cost. Some see it as an imposed penalty that many small-business truckers can't afford to pay.
The original analysis of estimated costs of EOBRs was done in 2011 and since then the market has changed dramatically. Newer products like the Qualcomm MCP50 provides a more affordable option that has lowered the overall cost for broad implementation in the trucking industry. These new electronic onboard recorders offer the same benefits at a much lower cost.
What do EOBRs cost?
The most affordable EOBR unit from the trusted Qualcomm brand is the MCP50. When considering EOBR costs there is the price of the unit, the installation, and the monthly service plan to consider.
Professional installation from our expert installation teams to ensure everything is installed properly and working is $90.
A monthly plan from Qualcomm is selected from the options. Monthly EOBR plans start at $19.95 a month based on a 5 year contract.
