Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Is anybody using any commercially available GPS navigation units in fire apparatus or in ambulances? I'm starting to research them for my department and wanted to see if anyone has any good, bad or otherwise about them. Thanks, stay safe.

We have them in our Ambulance and Command car for use when responding for mutual aid. We do not have them in our engine or truck figuring they will follow the command to the scene. Works out well so far.
