As a truck driver, you rely on technology from the newest gadgets to make your job easier. If you’re looking for something to add to your wish list this year, consider the benefits of these six gadgets.
Bluetooth-Enabled CB Radio
If you thought CB radios were outdated technology, think again. The 29 LTD LX BT is the first-ever Bluetooth-enabled CB radio. It provides another way for you to communicate safely and easily with other professionals on the road.
Unique features help you get the most from this CB radio, including a noise-canceling microphone to ensure your calls come in loud and clear, even over a rumbling engine. Incoming audio is transmitted through the truck’s radio speakers so you can clearly hear the caller ID. It’s a must-have gadget for every self-respecting truck driver.
With a spacious main compartment and 12 other pockets, the Energi+ Backpack is perfect for people on the go. You can even charge your gadgets with the included rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. This provides up to four smartphone charges or one tablet charge to keep you connected on the road. As the ultimate traveler, you could certainly benefit from having this briefcase/backpack/charging station on hand.
Durable Laptop Computer
A laptop ensures you stay connected with friends and family back home while on the road. However, you need something durable that can withstand more than your average working conditions. That’s what makes the GammaTech DURABOOK R8300 laptop such a good choice for truck drivers.
It’s built to withstand harsh conditions and has the rugged certifications to prove it. Still, you get plenty of user-friendly features, such as a bright 13.3-inch LCD display, quick-release HDD-storage capability, Wi-Fi, SIM card slot, GPS module and more.
You don’t have limitless space in your cab, which is what makes the Koolatron P20 Compact 12V cooler such a good gadget for truck drivers. It’s not just an ordinary cooler, either. 12-volt power works to keep your food cool or warm. A quiet motor circulates the air within the cooler for consistent cooling or heating. The cooler is compact but still large enough to hold 18 quarts, equivalent to 23 soda cans.
TRANSFLO Mobile+ App
At the end of the day, you want to expedite your paperwork and get on your way. The TRANSFLO Mobile+ App from Pegasus TransTech allows just that. Use this one-stop solution to scan documents, receive load tendering information, submit accident reports, communicate with your carrier and much more. It’s a mobile app no truck driver should be without!
