Well I’ll sit here thinking, does any with FMCSCA Rule about the GPS is being in the window. One time I heard that it could not be attached To the window because it was in the line of sight. Does anyone know if this is true

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I just heard this on the radio myself.

As a rule of thumb (don't quote me on this) you should be ok if the unit is outside the path of the wiperblades. Just make sure you can see all of your mirrors without moving your head.

I see mine low in the window, so it's in the same area as the engine hood. That area is already blocked.

Also I stuck my cellphone high up in the windshield and let the power wire just dangle.

Never had any problems seeing out or with the Law.

I've got a heavy bean bag mount? That you stick the windshield mount to and it's on the dash free of the windshield. Not sure if it was for a Garmin or a Rand McNally as I have both..

I got that because I was told the same thing. And I've never really questioned it... And cause the suction cup kept falling off the windshield and with a bit of super glue on the mount. I don't have to worry about it anymore.

Remember the line you need to say for your in-cab pre-trip: "the windshield has no illegal stickers or any obstruction to my field of view".

If you can still say that after you stick stuff to the glass, you should be ok.

I'm with you. But I've grown quite attached to being out of the seat as much as possible. So with my GPS not stuck to the windshield I can grab it and sit in the bunk and do my trip planning.
