    Hey guys me and my buddy are just getting into this plow business and was wondering if anyone knows of a mapping program that once we put in all of our customers contact information all the customers would show up on a map so we can efficiently go to the closest customer 1st and so on. We can make 1 big circle and end up back home wthout missing anyone and do it the most efficient way. Thanks, Rich

    I recently purchased a new magellon gps for 2 of the trucks. We enter the addresses, click optimize and the quickest route to all 11 locations in order leads us on our way

    not too hard to drive your accounts BEFORE the snow flies and map out what works best
    the amount of time you have spent on here asking for someone to do it for you could have been better spent with a town map and a pencil

    Hi Rich,
    I wanted to follow up with you and see if you were able to resolve your mapping issues and have a more effective route planned.
