    No driver release so each stop might take 3 stops to get rid of it. No EDD so you had to sort the load and remember each stop in your head. It was so much harder of a job back then. I would never go back.

    They're speaking to people personally here if their percentage isn't acceptable, i was threatened with a warning letter. Half used it today, laughed at the non existent roads it wanted me to take. I hate inconveniencing myself just to satisfy some stupid metric. Leave me alone and let me deliver the packages my way.

    I've done that countless times. Real time saver.

    I've used a pouch with the DIAD V for 5+ years and now suddenly it's not there. Quite a habit to break.

    Our center received the same flavor of the week bookmark the next stop.

    Does anyone know how we can bookmark a stop for a Not Found package that was found buried in the load or brought out to us later in the day?

    I will ask my center mgmt. team.

    For a meerkat and a warthog I’ll give them the benefit in translation.

    They can be synonymous. Languages don't necessarily translate word for word.

    Sounds pretty easy

    Because the equipment we are being instructed to use was never tested under actual operational conditions and it was supplied by the lowest bidder.

    I got a cradle in April and used it as instructed for 3 months until the problems started.
    On my rural route, the constant shaking and vibration from the rutted gravel roads has worn out the contacts in the bottom of the DIAD.
    This causes the connection to be intermittent, which in turn causes the orange lights to flash on and off which eventually causes my DIAD to crash, forcing me to continually have to reboot it.
    The lock on the side of the cradle has already filled up with dust and grime, making it impossible to use. And due to cost cutting, we have no spare DIADS left.
    Since the old DIAD holder has been removed, the only way for me to keep my DIAD from crashing is to fold up a delivery notice and put it in the bottom of the cradle in order to break the connection and turn off the map nav program (which was functionally useless anyway.)
    This is a case study in what happens when people in cubicles who have never delivered a package in their lives are allowed to order equipment that they will never have to use themselves.

    Those cradles have started slowly showing up in our package cars, and everything you’ve experienced is every concern I had when I saw them. There’s a ton of terrible, dusty roads in these parts. I guess it will be one more thing to write up.

    The issue here is you are 1 of 5000 drivers who may have this issue,so while it sucks for you it is considered an acceptable problem overall.

    It doesnt suck for me because I dont need the mapnav feature anyway. Not using it makes me show up on a report but that is not my problem.
    The issue here is that if mine crapped out after only 3 months, how long will it be until the rest of them fail? I am not the only one in my building who is having these issues.
    Bottom line is that they probably “tested” one of these for about 20 minutes in the nice smooth parking lot of Atlanta HQ and called it good without ever taking into account the effects of extreme vibration, dust, and other real-world conditions. Remember also that the idiots who designed and ordered the cradles are the same idiots who were stupid enough to think that ORION could actually work. Which explains why they are such junk.
