    I got that thing too. Get to close to a truck or go out of your lane it makes a retarded beeping noise. My dude don't bother me with my camera so I'll stay put too.

    I hate the lane thing.

    1. It's insane, goes off when I'm nowhere near a lane edge, seems to care a whole lot about the right lane marker but nothing about the left.

    2. If i'm not on the drunk bumps, I don't want to hear a word, ####.

    3. it's totally useless in the rain at night. You know, when it might actually be helpful, when you can't see. Nope, total silence.

    useless "technology"

    If I ever find that speaker, it's getting ripped out.

    As a FedEx Ground contractor - I am amazed at some of the bad info spread around in these forums.

    Paranoia and conspiracy theories run wild...




    Anyway - We have our choice of about 12 companies that offer cameras and lane departure technology.

    As long as the equipment meets the standards agreed upon - the company is fine with whatever your choice is.

    I went with Omnitracs and their IVG systems / reliable and easy to use.

    FedEx ground is now forcing the contractors to set the speed on trucks at 65mph!! This will be mandatory by August 28. This is it for me. Totally babysitter Trucking.
