Winter Weather Electronics for Semi Trucks
Anyone on the road in winter should be ready for unexpected weather, problematic traffic, and detours due to ice or snow. This is especially true for heavy duty truck drivers.
When it’s your job to get from A to B as quickly and as safely as possible, it helps to know what lies ahead on the road. And, while this is true all year long, winter weather makes it even more important for truckers to take advantage of all the great types of technology out there.
At Bud and Tony’s Truck Parts, we try to find the best types of semi-truck technology and electronics out there. America’s truckers’ safety is always on our minds!
You may be able to get traffic and weather info off your phone, but when it really matters, why not use a product designed specifically for truck drivers?
Semi-truck drivers have different needs than every-day drivers. They need to be prepared for things like low-clearance overpasses, special truck routes and the availability of weigh stations. Here just a few features that most GPS trackers for commercial vehicles offer:
Sometimes even the most high-tech cell phone and the best WiFi technology can fail, especially for semi-truck drivers when hauling through remote or mountainous areas.
This is when good old fashion radio waves come in handy. A CB radio is one more layer of preparedness for times you might get stuck in traffic or side-lined by severe weather. You can reach out to other truckers for updates or make emergency calls, if necessary.
Bud and Tony’s Truck Parts offers an array of CB radios. You can also check out our general electronics area for antennas and more.
Whether you drive a 2019 Freightliner Cascadia or an older model Peterbilt, Kenworth or International truck – after-market semi-truck electronics are, for the most part, universal. While some brand new models of truck may come equipped with an onboard navigation system like most cars do now, you can always add a GPS system or CB made to meet the needs of the heavy duty trucking industry.
