[TFM ELD] application needs to use background location as this is a requirement of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate. We must satisfy FMCSA’s minimal requirements including collecting and recording the exact geolocation. Due to the fact that TFM ELD application is a tool used by drivers throughout the day (shift), drivers periodically lock and minimize the application on their tablets/phones and we must continue to track their location in the background. This is one of the main requirements of the mandate as geolocation must be recorded and shown during specific events such as but not limited to Driving, Intermediate Location, On/Off duty statuses.
