    As allot of you know I'm a milk hauler. I typically deliver to a handful of plants that are usually fairly easy to get in and out.... and since I live here in the area, I am familiar with those places to begin with.

    Thursday I have to take a load to upstate-Niagara on Fulton Ave in Rochester. I have only been in Rochester a few times in my 40 years living in western ny. I'm not that familiar and this plant is more or less, in the city.

    So what is everyone using for GPS. I used sygic truck on my android phone years ago when I ran dump truck. It has the weight restrictions, bridge clearances, ect ect. You could enter truck specifications customized to your vehicle. I'm not quite as long or tall as a 53ft dry van OTR sleeper truck, but I'm typically heavier.

    I was going to get a 1 month subscription to sygic truck to handle this load, but the one month subscription no longer is available. It's now 1 year or lifetime (with 3 years map updates). $75 or $112 respectively. I liked sygic but its allot of money to lay out when I dont normally need a truck GPS.

    I'm not looking for a $300 Garmin. Looking for a truck specific GPS on android is. What do you guys suggest.

    Actually dairy farmers are not permitted to sell their deceased cows to beef processing. It's stupid and wasteful but it is, what it is

    I use the Co-Pilot app on my iPad Pro 10.5. Have it mounted to my dash and its really easy for my old eyes to see......my 760 Garmin is getting old and very senile....the directions are pretty much useless on it.

    There are no good free trucking route apps? Only option is to buy a Garmin or Rand Mcnally GPS unit?
