More support for the FMCSA ban on cell phones for truck drivers

The American Trucking Association is supporting the new proposed ban on cell phones for drivers.  I understand that safety is a priority but I am not sure how this is going to work.   Scenario:  Truck driver is following his GPS gets to address but its not right.  How does he call for directions?  He can’t pull into anywhere, trucks just can’t fit everywhere.  This is going to get tricky and I think we are going to need some leniency in those types of cases.  I do agree that there is no need to be on a cell phone when you are on the interstate.
