HOW OFTEN ARE YOUR DRIVERS LOST?
◦The time drivers are lost is valuable time and money consumed,
for nothing in return.
◦ Scenario: If a single driver is lost for at least 10 hours a week,
that means you loose about $1,000 a month just on driver’s
wages at $25 an hour.
◦ Not to mention fuel costs, maintenance on extra wear and tear
on the vehicles, and the frustration of getting lost!
Nobody enjoys being in an accident, they are noisy, messy, expensive and to be pointed, they can end in serious injury or even death. Most of us will do just about anything to avoid them, except for stop driving. Thankfully, taking your chances on the open road has gotten a lot safer thanks to certain GPS features. That’s right, your GPS can not only make your drive easier, but also safer.
BASIC GPS SAFETY FEATURES
When you use a paper map or directions printed from MapQuest they can only go one of two places, your dashboard or the passenger seat. The problem with these two locations is simple; they are not the road. The road is where all drivers should be looking. Since GPS units can be attached to your windshield you can keep an eye on the traffic.
YOU WILL NEVER TURN THE WRONG WAY AGAIN
If you have ever been lost in the oil field and made a quick turn only to find yourself at a dead end on an unpaved road with no room to turn around, then you can appreciate this feature. If you get off track your GPS will automatically reroute you (in most cases). Once it is done recalculating your route it will give you a safe alternate route, no guess work required.
KEEP YOURSELF SAFE WITH UPDATED GPS OPTIONS
The number one thing that you can do to help your GPS keep you safe is to keep it updated regularly. Having Constant updates available will keep you informed of new roads, and new Well locations. The second thing is to use it as per the instructions. This means you should not be fiddling with the device while you are on the road. Simply pull over if you need to make any changes.
