Choosing the Right Global Positioning System (GPS) Navigation Device - Visor Card
The FMCSA created a visor card specifically for truck and bus drivers on how to choose the right navigation system intended for them. The visor card gives tips for safe use of navigation systems, and can be downloaded free-of-charge.
The visor card provides tips on selecting the proper navigation system designed for trucks and buses, and the correct use of the navigation systems. For example, in order for the navigation system to provide you with the appropriate route, truck and bus drivers should enter all relevant information such as:
|vehicle's length, width and height;|
|axle weight; and|
|any hazardous materials being hauled.|
