    I use a rand McNally overdrive 7. It’s not perfect I don’t think any of them are. They will probably all try sending you down roads you can’t go on from time to time. Atlas’ are great for driving down interstates but when you actually get onto side roads they’re useless. Unless you carry around a library of Thomas guides( they even make those anymore?) Google maps satellite or street view is incredibly useful a lot of time. And I cannot stress it enough. Use common sense and you’ll be fine

    Wrong atlas buddy! That one is for 4-wheelers. This is the one you need. It has 208 pages and is geared towards the trucker.

    There's an even better one. It is the large-scale one. It has laminated pages and is 37% larger. It has 324 pages due to the larger scale. It runs about $60 but I feel it is well worth it. It is one of my most prized "trucker toys".

    It has 208 laminated pages of maps and other useful info geared (see what I did there) towards the trucker.

    If you want something with a little more hot sauce, then this is the one for you:

    It is laminated and is 37% larger due to larger scale. It has 324 pages full of trucking bliss. It runs about $60 but it is well worth it. It is one of my most prized "trucking essential".
