    DO you know if there is a product that log routes? I am looking for a GPS that I can have in the cutting trucks that will show my Employees how to get to the next lawn. I have invested so much time in showwing employees lawn routes. I want to be able to have a computer tell them where to go next. Does this exist yet? I would think UPS and Fedex would be running this? Thanks For the imput.

    i am getting a GPS system installed in the Jeep. it will help me find customers hous's better, but more importantly, the major dealers of all commercial equipment are 40+ miles away. i am buying a shindaiwa trimmer, and i have to out to CT to get it. GPS will minimize downtime and embarassment due to getting lost.

    There is a Shindaiwa dealer 1/2 mile north of Mass pike exit 3 in Westfield, Bovat's. Small dealer but a good guy to do business with.

    Some of the higher end GPS systems let you preprogram the routes so that would like work...

    Seriously though, I can't wait until they make cars that you can preprogram for your employees. All they do is get in and the car drives them to where they have to be -- then you just have to get them to work :rolleyes:
