Professional chauffeur seeks resources
My name is C. Hunter Thorne, you may call me Thrashbear, the heavy metal teddy bear \m/
I just got an HTC Evo V from Virgin Mobile, replacing an 18-month-old LG Optimus. So while I'm no stranger to casual Android use in general, most of the finer points escape me. I'm not technically oriented so typically need a lot of handholding to accomplish my tasks in this realm. In my dreams, I envision adding a tablet like a Galaxy Note or Google Nexus for easier operations while on the road, but for now my HTC is a good start.
I joined this forum to help maximize my potential in my new career as a professional chauffeur in Pittsburgh. This includes tools and apps I need in order to execute my duties to their fullest effectiveness and efficiency. I rely on these resources to keep abreast of flights, maintain contact with dispatch, traffic, navigation (not to mention entertain a bored driver while between runs); anything I can use to get an edge and keep our clients happy.
I am not "married" to VM, but they have served me well so far. I very nearly made the jump to Verizon, but the initial investment was too high. I'll stick with what I have for now and see how it works.
I have some needs, goals, and ideas not just for myself but for my fellow drivers and the company I work for, so I'll be here frequently bothering the lot of yinz with my inane questions. All hail and skul from Steeler country!
