TMC has really nice trucks. Looks roomy and they run all automatic transmissions.

Adaptive cruise control with collision warnings. No manual gauges everything is on the electronic speedometer screen.

You can get DirecTV and watch TV shows.

Is this normal equipment for trucks these days?

Had these when I drove at Millis. Nice for a 34 hour reset, or sitting in the dock waiting. Not uncommon to see satellite TVs on trucks, though.

I'm not a fan of the digital gauges. They're too bright at night, messing up what you can see in your mirrors and even if you do bring the brightness down, there's still some glare. Also, when you restart the truck it just shows the speedometer. You have roll the dial on the steering wheel to bring up the entire cluster.

Fortunately, ours have a dimmer switch. We’ve been having a problem with them locking up, had to have the shop show me the other night how to reset it without detaching the ground.

The new Pete '579s like the ones in Columbus??? Yeah; we're still . . . thinking. Columbus, Ohio; New Terminal for Crossett!

The Mack's at FAB had a mix of 'both.' The 'important stuff' were the good ole' dials. Our new (to us) Toyota, .. otoh; still learning and all digital. Had to buy a glare shield.

Do most of the 'newer' fleets of all/any make & model have the digital dashes? Hmmm....

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
