RR crossings

 

There are recent articles on GPS and RR crossings with both Garmin and Tom Tom receiving some credit.

I know my DriveLuxe announces RR crossing and wonder how many other Garmin devices offer the same.

Rather than post a link to an article, do a browser search for Navigation apps still lack railroad safety info the NTSB requested

Interesting.

I read that. I to think

I read that. I too think there is already too much info bombarding motorists from electronic devices. If you can't see those large cross buck signs and red flashing lights, then no electronic device is going to help you.

I'll bet that most of the ones that run or get caught in RR crossings aren't using an electronic device. If they are, it's to text or talk on the phone.

I would bet that all the Drivexxx models do. My Drive 51's all do.

BTW: There ars sill LOTS of RR crossings that are "bare-bones" warnings. I know of at least one that has only a "X" sign. I don't know how often it is used, but the rails tops are shinny so it must be used somewhat regularly.

This country has a history of letting the RR decide what is cost effective considering public safety.

Funny coming across this topic today, one of my facebook groups posted this gem of a crossing, 5 rail lines (used to) all come together at this spot.

That must be on newer models, my 1690 doesn't announce anything like RR's etc.

Yep!

My 2590 doesn't either ... Like some others here, I'm not sure I miss it though ...

I like it mainly for the School Zone alert (one beep).
