    My RM 740 is starting to act up too... fear I am going to have to start looking at options sooner than later.

    Hello Dallas!!! It’s been awhile.

    so ya, no time to screw around yesterday today or tomorrow... first time in several months that I have a load with very tight scheduled appointments... the shipper was a bit delayed yesterday and they almost rescheduled it for the following day. But I thought I could make the run (instead of babysitting it for 23 hours) so I ran... arrived 2 minutes from the appointment time... whew... returning to CB tomorrow and on an equally tight run... I screwed up and thought it dropped on Saturday and wasn’t until I was underway that my DM said something about back to back tight loads... I’m like HUH? ... double checked and DANG IT... I totally had the wrong day/date combo... luckily I didn’t screw off too much between drop and hook.

    the Dallas Drop Yard has some serious security... chainlink fence with barbed wire at the top and several rows of what looks to be very powerful electrical fence lining the chainlink. No I didn’t piss on it to check for voltage... lol ... and I’m dang sure I would not be able to squeeze in between the wires without touching one or both (thinking of that Operation Game... buzz buzz)

    I’ll be in CB tomorrow for a shop visit if anyone’s around hit me up.
     
    Silverdriver Thanks this.

    For those of you who may or may not be having issues with your Garmin. They’re located in Olathe Kansas and they do have truck parking and walk in customer service. The time I went there they was very polite and courteous . They couldn’t fix my GPS so they replaced it and give me another one and updated it and checked it over before I left. I have the new Dezl OTR 700 and I like it . If you down the Garmin Drive app on your phone and Bluetooth it to your gps it with tell you where red light cameras are speed traps and live updated traffic. Plus if you hotspot your phone to it you can over lay the weather radar of you route and show you where the weather is along your route

    Thank you for that. I’ve been trying to figure it out today. What are the steps for getting it to show me current radar laid over my route?
