iPHONE

Also like to add that for all truckers, especially newcomers, that a very helpful tool is the IPHONE. An app that comes with the phone called “Maps” is extremely helpful in showing the direction of the many one-way streets in NYC.  It doubles as a GPS device as well but does not verbalize (text-to-speech.)  BEWARE though that these standard map and GPS apps do not account for legal truck routes in their decisions!  For that, you need an app like the Co-Pilot Truck from ALK.  It’s in the iTunes store but doesn’t come cheap.  I don’t feel that this app is as accurate as the Rand McNally stand-alone GPS, but it takes truck routes into account far more than a car app does anyway.
