    Most have gone the MODAT route but there have been a few handed out over the years. I've reviewed and tweaked a couple, but unfortunately haven't been given permission to share, they're not mine to make that decision with.

    If the dispatch system is currently supporting MODAT and/or CAD, or you're using the electronic accountability system that ties in with the command software then you have a case built in. Otherwise it is an uphill battle to convince people you need every vehicle equipped. It is a lot nicer for preplans and maps I will admit. When I was a younger nerd in college I took the stuff from my dept up north and just made a localized web site on all of the chiefs cars laptops. Almost FF-proofed, but now with Toughbooks and the touch-screen you can have more info in an easier to access method than ever before.

    And should we start the poll about how many of us started singing Whitesnake after reading the title of the thread? Or picturing the video?

    They threw a concert down here in the last year or two. Can't remember who was with them, but about 4 other 80s metal bands. I missed it. Wife wouldn't let me grow the mullet again.

    Well the mullet could happen, I'm only losing the hair in the front. It's mohawk that I couldn't pull off.
