    Anyone using GPS type tracking devices either in their snow or regular business. Are they accurate enough to use to bill from? Do they work well in the snow & ice?

    You're thinking of putting them in your trucks?

    A friend of mine uses them in his trucks and he has a hard time finding employees because of it.

    The State here uses them- not sure how accurate they are for billing, but they use GPS trackable mobil phones.

    Trucking companies have been useing them for YEARS- these new gen of driver revolting against them need to grow up. Before GPS tracking they used Tach-O-Graphs.... Nothing has changed, drivers are just ignorant of the situation and stubborn.
