    Yes or no?
    If yes, what do you use it for?

    2 tablets. One is the company provided one that goes with the truck. Keeps track of hours, messages, routing, etc. Then, I have a 10.5 inch Samsung which I use for everything except regular texting and phone calls (it doesn't have those 2 functions). I got it through my cellphone company (Sprint at the time), so if I habe a cellphone signal, I have internet on my tablet.
    While I'm driving, I usually have trucker path up on it. Keeps me aware of where I'm actually at and upcoming rest areas, truck stops, etc. Those routing programs give you routing, but they kinda suck at letting you know where you actually are. I like having the map display up so I can see where I am.

    I’ve got a Rand McNally Overdryve I use the maps for, also have it set to turn orange if I ago over the speed limit.
    Then I have a cheap 7” Samsung I use for KeepTruckin/Motive, and prefer Waze
    Maps on it while rolling.
    I also have a laptop to take care of all my relevant paperwork like Rate Cons,
    invoicing, miles/fuel tracking, etc.
    I don’t watch any movies due to lack of time but will throw some old Gunsmoke on from time to time to go to sleep by.
    pumpkinishere Thanks this.
