It’s not just the new diad that has turn by turn
It’s in the 5s too
Just getting the new holder/chargers for diad 5 here as well. They tell us at the pcm and via message to avoid in cab distractions yet now we have turn by turn navigation we can stare at. Uhh ok. I suppose it's handy if you're on a route blind.
They aren't handy on blind routes either. It will have you driving in circles and doing unsafe acts like residential backing. The navigation is based on orion so you know it's gonna be garbage.
For the guys who haven't had their routes for years, its really nice. Especially being sent out blind. I love the cradles.
Go in back and sort the truck by shelf in EDD order. The navigation will work only in Orion order but you can still scan and deliver the packages in any order you want.
And if you mark your next stop, the navigation will lead you there next.
On some air routes turn by turn will have you running your 12:00 commits before you finish your 10:30 commits. Going to be a lot of late air if management tries to enforce it.
Depends on the route i suppose. I was out blind using just mapnav and it kind of got the job done. But orion doesn't really work on an in town route so there i'm sure its an issue. I just recently got my own route so no more of that bs thankfully.
Coverage driver had a split off me 2 days this past week. On Thursday I got it back, but was missing a call tag. I had to get his air and asked if he had it. He did, so I asked if he could run it for me. He asked "where's it at?"
I said, "Dude, it's a third attempt that you've been to the last couple days"
He started to turn pale, so I drew him directions... SMH, friggin ORION
Typical lying management.
i guess it makes sense for navigation otherwise the 5 is near perfect (could be smaller/lighter)
Based on the photos I’ve seen, I’m concerned about the durability of the DIAD VI. How well does it hold up against a dog’s skull?
I do know that when you throw it at the back door as hard as you can the screen shatters in 100 pieces. So I'm told...
Move the damn signature key
Looks like a cell phone. Mic and camera better get out the electrical tape
Seriously. If this is real, it has a speaker and a microphone. Are we going to be getting calls from OMS on this thing?
If it's like the phones they gave us in feeders you can make calls on it.
Orion is the greatest thing ever.
All the better to see you with,my dear
Every DIAD in the history of UPS has had a speaker and a microphone.
