Truck drivers put in long hours on the road, which means it’s easy for boredom to set in. A bored, listless truck driver can be a liability on the highway. So nothing can be better to break up the monotony of the highway like some great music, a lively radio show or a good podcast. In this article we’ll talk about some truck driver audio options to keep you entertained.
Most truck drivers will go through at least a couple of stereo decks during the course of their career. The heat, dust and vibration is simply too much, even for the best built truck stereo decks. Plus, what truck driver doesn’t want to check out the latest tech in audio? Newer models have iPod ports and docks, large touchscreens, HD radio options and more. Why shouldn’t truckers reward themselves with some high tech?
Today, we thought we would feature a few stereo, HD Radio, and internet options for truck drivers. Some are affordable, some are investments. It all comes down to what you hope for in truck cab entertainment – basic goods, or high tech wizardry?
