Question about new diad/gps holder

Your diad holder will keep it on whenever it's fully operational. You'll just dock the diad into the holder and once you turn on the package car the map shows up. It'll stay on until you stop and power off.

amazing placement by the way...I have to reach behind the damn thing to hit the green start button.
Our mechanics installed a couple of these without the backs on them,(as the instructions supposedly told them to), so for some stupid reason the diads don't seat in the cradle correctly to display the maps or charge like they are supposed to. And yet we are getting yelled at for not meeting the compliance metric that has been set for usage of these things.

At first we never had the backs on either and weren't able to use them. Eventually they'll get put on there, don't worry.

Anyone know what the red + symbol under the black boxes means on your stops? I figured out the city/skyscraper building means its a business but then i saw a bunch of red + marks under the black boxes. Not sure what those mean.

It is very freeing. It took a while but my day is so much easier to not have to think about how im supposed to get from point A to point B. I also give as close to 100% orion compliance as I can due to not wanting to think anymore. My overtime has gone thru the roof but I'm done trying to fix stupid.

Yup, I've decided not to think anymore. I'm just the guy that drives the truck around and takes the packages out. Technology does the rest no matter how stupid.

I agree. The stress of trying to figure out which stop is next because Orion basically hits the shuffle button on my route everyday is gone. Now I just plug it in and go where it says to go. If dispatch doesn't fix my route I'm thinking about getting a second car with the extra OT money.

Funny some of the ones in mine center work perfectly and The rest cut off as soon as the vehicle is put in drive.

The GPS isn’t that bad on rural routes..I just don’t like how it has the persons name along with the address, it cuts out the full address..

Multiple Stops near each other, will just show as one I assume to not have too many stops crowding the map.
