GPS Use

Posted by Tony Brock | Mar 26, 2018 | 0 Comments

When driving in an unfamiliar city, a global positioning system (GPS) (navigation system) can be of help in finding a destination, if the right type of device is used.

It is key to remember that all devices do not perform the same tasks.  A general GPS is intended for personal vehicle use.  As a professional driver, you need a device that is designed for your specific driving tasks.

A GPS designed for the professional driver includes information addressing truck routes, low overpasses, and axle limits.

All relevant information should be entered into the GPS prior to the driver beginning your trip.  This includes:

  • Vehicle length, width, height,
  • Axle weights, and
  • Hazardous materials being transported (if applicable).

Follow the route suggested by the GPS, but pay attention and obey traffic signs and advisories, especially if they provide restrictions and/or directions the GPS did not alert you to.
