A dash mounted GPS is a good option. Most models have more features than you will ever use so keep it basic and donít bother with anything over $700. A far lower priced option and one that is still absolutely packed with features is a program like Microsoft Streets and Trips. This $100 program is meant to be installed on your laptop and comes with a GPS device that connects to your computer via a standard USB plug-in. By utilizing the data dump feature in Xactimate, you can export the street addresses for all of your claims directly into Streets and Trips. Streets and Trips then allows you to take say 5 given destinations, find your current location, and calculate the quickest way to visit all 5. This is an excellent feature when planning your dayís claim route.
