    Haha it's not a live aereal view - more like the satellite view on google maps. Basically they can see on a map where you are.

    No biggie. Seabass wrote 'actual arial view of your vehicle', but if this is what he meant- meh.

    Yes, it is really an arial view. My DBL sat me down at his work station and demonstrated this for me.

    Umm, so Schneider has a dedicated satellite following me? What? They can look at Google Earth, just like we do to see how a customer's docks and facilities look before we get there. It's NOT live!

    Not easily convinced are you. That's fine.

    The DBL pulled up a satellite view of where I was parked at the Operating Center. Then randomly choose another truck who was parked at a Pilot fuel island. Live view. Slightly different than Google earth. This is not a top secret or anything at Schneider. They make drivers aware of this in orientation.

    I've seen it, it puts a blue circle/mark on the map where your tractor is located. It's not a live satellite feed. Black helicopters take the aerial shots too.

    To be clear I am referring to Schneider National from Green bay. Their trucks are generally orange in color.
    The operations people most certainly have the ability to veiw their trucks from a satellite aerial perspective. Or bird's-eye view of the top of the vehicle. Not a dot on a map.

    Happy trails...
