    EDD is supposed to be a guide to let you know what stops you have, you air commitments and pick up's. If you follow the order the EDD addresses are in you'll be driving all over the place and wasting a lot of time.

    On some routes you can follow the EDD on others you can't. It all depends on how the dispatch person and the driver set the route up if they ever did.

    It doesn't work too well in the city because we have so much commercial, you have to break off before 5 for commercial stops. NDA saver by 3PM.

    Honestly it's more of mess.

    He's right, use maps and learn how to read them. Don't use the ones on your phone, and GPS won't work too well either. You need to be able to see the whole area, with a paper map you can actually learn the neighborhood.
