New to trucking need a GPS

Ive got the Rand Mcnally 530. It works great, does what I need.

Always remember, a GPS is just a tool and should not be relied on all the time. Nothing beats a map book.

You will find there are some locations that say truck route, but really they aren't, always use a map book. I like to use Google Maps, Earth, GPS and my book.

Thank you much guys

What is a realistic expectation for first year salary?

Ok, so I just got my last check, and I'm feeling pretty hopeless right now. Going back through my pay history and doing some basic addition, I made $1533.20 net for the month of December. Some simple multiplication shows that if that's all I can expect, I'll net about $18300 - $18400 my first year.

Is this normal? I haven't even ttaken any home time since I left on November 3rd. Am I getting screwed? What can I do to make this better? I can make more flipping burgers than driving at this rate. Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Wow dude.try wel companies they start out.non experience.drivers at .35 cpm

Being a Felon & Getting a truck driving job

double-quotes-start.png

I'm having no luck what so ever finding a driving job after just getting out of prison. Seems like all the companys that do hire felons require your felonys to be at least 3 years old. By the time mine are 3 years old, I'll have missed out on alot of driving. My parole officer has agreed to let me drive from state to state, but now I cant find a driving job. I feel like I'm up against a wall at every turn. I hate that I cant put my class A CDL to use. Does anybody have any suggestions?
