How does local driver navigate themself ?

Thank you.That’s what I’m going to do

Build relationships with the drivers you work with. Ask them if they're familiar with the route you're doing that day and if there's anything out of the ordinary you need to be aware of. Usually, other drivers will be your best source of information because they've been there and done that. See if dispatch has your route ready the night before and start planning that night.

How does local driver navigate themself ?

Hi guys.Starting new local job in PA and will be delivering to NJ areas.Company doesn’t provide GPS( have mine) but little worry about driving to 6-10 new places daily.I have experienced w GPS OTR and as everybody here knows,they don’t deliver 100%. I don’t see it as big issue because you have more time to prepare for the road,check maps,necessary directions.But local new guy doesn’t have this luxury and specially time. I would like to ask someone in PA,NJ area who delivers,what is your best way to getting around?I spoke to few guys from company and they said they use Google maps.After certain time deliveries will be to same area to learn this routes.So if anyone has good tips what could be the best way please help.Thank you
