GPS anyone? DFD doesn’t have it.

I was talking to a Dayton fireman the other evening and asked about GPS in their vehicles. Guess what? They don’t have them. Now, I know the city pretty well, but, when lives are at stake, and I might be working in a part of the city I’m not familiar with- wouldn’t it be handy to use GPS instead of a map, or have to ask for directions?
GPS units can be had for less than $100 these days.
Can any of our City Employees explain why GPS isn’t in every emergency response vehicle?
What about other local municipalities?
Shouldn’t our brand new dispatch center have the ability to send the address directly to a GPS unit in the response vehicle?
