    Yes, the bezitch's name is Jill...

    You will grow to hate her...

    You'll want to get your own as well, as Jill tends to crap out when you need her most...

    Roll on...

    It is best to get a truckers atlas and know how to use it, gps is nice but you still need to know truck routes, low bridges and them gps,s will give you a bad turn sometimes.

    Run without gps. Just use the atlas. Save the money you would use to buy a gps in case of an emergency. I ran otr without gps for 2 years. It is very possible.

    I'd suggest getting the spiral bound one if you dont have that version.

    oh and know that navigo(the truck gps system) is set to route you the "shortest" route which isnt always the fastest and often times takes far longer with more stop and starts.

    wherever possible I always took a toll road which navigo will look to avoid as a set parameter.

    so doing trip planning via atlas is a best imo and follow that , then see how well navigo matches your assessment.

    I have that one...laminated pages.I was just looking at it for my trip to Charlotte tomorrow just for fun,and I noticed it does not list smaller roads. Takes me 24 in Charlotte but then couple more smaller roads to hotel not on there.I'm sure Schneider is gonna teach that.
