Best Wireless Printer On The Truck.

Biggest issue I have with a printer, and it has been the last 2-3 printers that have been in my truck, is the ink cartridges go bad long before the ink is gone. I've always assumed it was the temp changes in my truck since the truck is always off when I'm not in it.

I'm in need of a new printer now, because mine is literally falling apart, but the scanner still works great and I have just kept using it since I rarely have to print anything.

Before I buy a printer, I walk over to the ink cartridges, and check out the prices. Haven't had to do that in a few years... my Canon 3 in 1 is tough as nails.

HP and Epson seemed more stable on direct connections, Canon was more problematic. At least that was the case when I was hooking up printers for the drivers when I was in the office .

On hotspot Canon is fine, and I prefer having the paper handling all on the front, lets the printer live against the firewall in front of the shifter , where it's out of the way.

Canon works fine both ways, although wireless is bunches more convenient.

I went through a bunch of HPs, Epson's and Lexmark printers... they all suffer the same problem. Their construction is cheap, and they don't withstand the physical beating that life in a truck gives them.

By direct I meant Wi-Fi direct. The Canons wouldn't reconnect to their phone without going through the whole setup process every few weeks. They were fine on a Hotspot. Never had problems with the other brands doing that.
