Best GPS for school bus driver?

edited March 2014 in GPS Recommendations
I am a new school bus driver and while I know my town well, I have not had to travel the side streets, subdivisions, back country roads, etc. Can anyone recommend a gps unit that I can plug my list of bus stop addresses into so it takes me from one to the next in order? I have only ever used the GPS built into my car and google maps on my phone to get to one single location, not 30-40. I don't know anything about GPS units and could sure use some advice. Thanks in advance!!

    between the kids doing kid stuff in the back and traffic doing it's stuff outside, I doubt you need more distraction. Plan it out on some mapping software and commit it to memory.

    Most of the latest Garmins will do what you want, just ensure they have the 'trip planner' feature.

    Thank you!
  • If you are a school bus driver, most states do not allow any GPS on the school bus. Better verify.

    School bus navigation would be great. Especially if there were some sort of prefer right side of road stop feature. I'm also a school bus driver, and can't stand the mistakes my GPS makes, like skipping destinations. I haven't found a good enough GPS to do what my old TomTom go 720 used to do. Too bad it got stolen.
