    I must use the mobile version and not the app. No Mrs Pacman on my phone. Found my sneaky parking spot with it using satellite view on the way to Nogales.

    I like Apple maps.
    Only one time I couldn't find a shipper and Google maps found it. That was a brand new warehouse and we didn't have directions on the Qualcomm yet

    Google maps is the app I use the most, I can not even imagine me trucking without it now. Satellite view is the best thing ever for truckers who go to different locations on a regular basis

    I like Google maps for the fact that it will warn me of potential traffic issues and recommend alternate routes. Of course, you always have to be careful since Google maps doesn't distinguish the type of vehicle you're in.
    I've also started using Waze recently. I wasn't really excited about it at first, and I'm not necessarily completely sold on it now, but it certainly can be useful.

    If you feel left out, maybe they'll let you download the Ms. Pacman game free today?!?

    It is on home computer screens as well. I think it is the NSA spying on us.

    I would suggest everyone go to the play store and rate the app. Give it one star, answer "no" to every feature listed, and respond with "One star until pacman is removed".
