What is the best truck gps to use for trailers in your experience

I've used a Rand McNally and currently have a Garmin Dezl 500. Both are good brands. If I have to buy another one, I will get a Rand McNally as I find it easier to use.

I’m a Garmin junkie ( truck, RV, boat). Currently have the Dezl 800 in the truck. Really like it so far, have found that monthly updates help. While training my trainer had the Rand McNally no complaints it worked well. If you go to Garmin’s website they have factory refurbished units at a discount with full warranty.

I prefer Garmin. My TNT trainer had the Garmin Dezl OTR800, and I was gifted the 700 model. I like the charging mount and extra lines of information that the 800 has, so I upgraded. Ultimately, it is entirely personal choice. The Garmin brand runs on an Android platform, if that matters to you.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.



Prime Inc has their own CDL training program and it's divided into two phases - PSD and TNT.

The PSD (Prime Student Driver) phase is where you'll get your permit and then go on the road for 10,000 miles with a trainer. When you come back you'll get your CDL license and enter the TNT phase.

The TNT phase is the second phase of training where you'll go on the road with an experienced driver for 30,000 miles of team driving. You'll receive 14¢ per mile ($700 per week guaranteed) during this phase. Once you're finished with TNT training you will be assigned a truck to run solo.
