Being a truck driver involves riding in a truck for long periods of time. Whether you have a local truck driving job or an over the road truck driving job, you spend a lot of time in your truck and this can be quite boring at times.
Fortunately, there are great electronic gadgets that offer entertainment for when you are on the road in your truck driving job.
Portable DVD players are becoming more and more affordable, and although these are not a good idea for when you are driving, your driving team partner will appreciate the opportunity to kick back and relax while watching a movie during their off shift.
CB radios are a timeless trucker gadget, and a must have for anyone with a truck driving job that keeps you on the road for hours on end. A CB radio allows a truck driver to stay up to date with current traffic and weather conditions, as well as connect with other CB radio users to ‘chat’.
Satellite radio is the new and modern must have for anyone with a truck driving job! Avoid commercials, and listen only to the music that you want to listen to. Sirius, the original satellite radio source, is still the best satellite radio to use.
Radar detectors are a helpful way to protect yourself from certain hassles associated with a truck driving job. Drive safely, and be prepared with a radar detector. Check out Radar Busters, one of the leading manufacturers of high quality, trust worthy radar detectors starting at just over $100.
Of all the cool electronics that are a must have for truck drivers, nothing can beat a laptop computer. Owning a laptop computer allows you to store and bring all of your favorite music to listen to.
Other benefits of bringing a laptop on the road come with the advantage of the increasing wi-fi hot spots popping up all over the place. Connecting to the internet from anywhere provides a variety of entertainment.
More importantly, the internet allows a truck driver to stay connected with family and friends when you are on the road for a long period of time.
The best part is that using your laptop computer to record your logs in allows you to use the computer as a tax write off for your truck driving job!
