GPSes for Trucks, Trailers and Other Vehicles
Let's face the facts, GPS systems designed for consumers do not offer truck drivers the information they need to do their jobs. Yes, they provide directions like they do to regular drivers, but that information is based on regular traffic patterns and situations.
Truck drivers need to know additional information when they are driving other than the location of local traffic jams or side road shortcuts to a destination. A trucker needs to know if a road allows trucks, if it has bridges that may be too low to pass under, or if there are weight requirements for a road.
Truckers need to know where rest areas are, where truck stops are located, and places you can park for the night if one of these two options is not available. A trucker also needs to dial into GPS to find loading docks, find the right trailer for a pickup, and any other relevant information that may impact their driving schedule.
Having the right GPS for your truck can help you:
* Avoid traffic problems and provide you with the most direct route to your destination
* Keep you on roads that will accommodate the weight and size of your vehicle
* Give you estimates of toll costs for any toll roads you may have to use
* Help you avoid bridges and overpasses that cannot accommodate your truck
* Help you keep your ELD up to date
* Help you find truck parking areas and rest stops
* Help you find docking areas and trailers
Your GPS system should also be able to integrate into your Wi-Fi, work with your speaker systems and connect to your backup camera systems.
