GPS, the ultimate in navigation and trip planning proficiency, appears to have been tailor-made for truckers. Drivers no longer need gloveboxes and dashboards full of assorted maps and atlases. Once you’ve used GPS, you’ll wonder where it’s been all your life.
As long as you have a clear view of the sky, the GPS receiver will operate. GPS devices receive a signal from a network of satellites orbiting the earth. With this information, they are able to determine your location. In addition, there’s no monthly service to pay for like you have with satellite radio.
