Wait, you turn off the car when it’s bitter cold? I’m keeping the cab t-t-toasty.When it’s bitter cold it’s scan and compete in cab, start truck and deliver the stop. 40 bucks an hour isn’t worth losing fingers to frostbite over a poorly designed piece of equipment.
I have pair of gloves with the thumb cut off but I start to lose the feeling in my thumb, to hell with methods.
Yes..but it was kinda presented to us as if UPS “just found out” that they were up against the wall to roll this out. Pretty sure 3G sunset been in the works for some time.Heres the unfortunate thing about the Diad 6 and the reason of the aggressive rollout without the bugs totally worked out. The five is an excellent machine and I believe superior but it runs on 3G and my understanding from one of the tech guys I talked to is that 3G will no longer be available by cellular companies within the next year making the DIAD 5 completely obsolete and basically a paperweight which is why they are retiring them. Unless they intend to send them out internationally where 3G will still exist.
Thank you DTD! When it’s that cold if I turn car off every stop it’ll never stay warm. I only shut down if I am at a commercial stop which I have few of. Most of my route is in rural area and I am not out of sight of the vehicle, it’s not SOP but when it’s single digit and below plus wind chill... sorry, keeping some heat on car is a safety issue,He’s trying to not freeze to death in an Alaska winter. Telematics can eat a fat one.
