Rural and letter carriers with the U.S. Postal Service now have a new selection on their scanners that answers the question “How Am I Doing?”. The “How Am I Doing?” feature can be found on the main menu of scanners used by postal delivery carriers. The feature includes up-to-date information on packages remaining, travel progress and number of long reverses, u-turns, hard braking and fast accelerations. Some of the information, including the driving-related data, is apparently GPS-derived. (Though it’s not clear how the scanner can discern the difference between a vehicle going forward or backward.) More information can be found by clicking on each tidbit of information.
