    Showed up this morning to find this sitting in my bay spot.

    It seems my soot and ash belching diesel has been Deep Sixed to UPS heaven and I've been granted a shiny new 700 right off of Freightliner's assembly line.

    This one has 300 miles on it and that fresh new-car smell complete with cellophane wrap. Has all sorts of perks like a dash mounted color camera, rear-gate spotlight for backing up, LED cargo lights and a functioning heater that doesn't make me smell like the Exxon Valdez.


    Only downside is that the DIAD holder is buried behind that giant screen. My cup holder is now my DIAD holder.

    I guess I was on my center manager's nice list this year. Ho ho ho.

    Probably a P8, actually.

    I’m driving one just like that today. The back end really sucks up dust. Hasn’t taken long to rag out all our new 800s on the rural routes.

    Not a fan of the monitor location.

    UPS only allows this kind.

    You can swap those diad holders around.

    Why would you even need one.... for daid 4 ?

    Looks like an after-thought.

    And the soon to be tattered seat belt is already in its damaging position.

    Montitor could have easily put where it always has been.

    You can’t even reach it around the monitor. We have one of these cars. No thanks.

    Nice. I wonder where they will put the DIAD charger/Nav cradle with the monitor being where it is.

    Some :censored2:ing genius was like "Hey, let's put it at dick level so the driver can't see out the windshield or the side mirrors while looking down at it! And let's put the monitor shield where the driver's hand will be accidentally knocking it all day!"

    I'm sure they can still eavesdrop on you with that thing too.

    Cant see the E brake lever.
    Looks like they're trying to make it impossible for the driver to grab the diad while driving.

    Looking down to view the monitor is a plus?

    Looks like a perfect location for him to bang his knee every time he stands up.

    I'm guessing on top of where the monitor is since its flat. Right now its a nice table to store packages on. Also doubles as a lunch tray.

    That's what the diad board microphone is for.
