    Does anyone use GPS in their trucks or equipment? I am interested in tracking my guys movements. If you do use it, what service and how much does it cost?

    Side question. I did a search for "gps" and got zero results but I know there are post's with gps in them because I read a few. Why won't my search work?

    Used it before, trucks only, don't remember the cost but it was up there

    Very useful to have especially if you plow snow, example, customer calls and asks why you haven't been at such'n'suh place and you tell that person with the printed report, yes we have.

    GPS in trucks is nice but the GPS on cell phones would be better, don't know the detail of the location if using cell phone though.

    Google search "@Road", hands down the best system out there, too bad the customer support SUCKS.

    I have one in the truck, comes in handy to go give estimates, just plug in the address and go

    Check out a TomTom GPS system. I have one and i love it and its the best tool to have when it comes to giving out estimates. I think they go for 299 now a days....

    GPS on a mower? What kinda lawns you mowing? "Yeah, I got lost on the back 40, had to use the TomTom to find my way to the truck.":laugh::laugh:

    Seriously, I would love to have GPS tracking in all the trucks.
