Summary: I drive the 48 states in every direction and this must be the worst GPS on the market BECAUSE the software authors are short sighted amateurs who won't even sign their work. Scary. If you're not looking for a beeline to a truck stop, this GPS will get you lost or on the wrong route nearly every time and it really hates you for not following its guide.
Summary: I purchased this product for my son after researching the different types of GPS units and discussing them with him. These are his words: "I'm a professional truck driver and I use a GPS on a daily basis to route in and out of cities in the US. It consistently routes you the long way, wrong way and illegal way. The software and display interface operates like a 5 year old designed it. I've had it less than a month and it has locked up on me 3 times in crucial scenarios.
Summary: The unit will not let you override the zip code feature for the right address. Contacted customer service and was told that their unit worked fine at there location when they put in my address. That didnt help me. The unit tells me I live 7 miles from my house. It wont let me log my current location as my home address. I also use a garmin for my small trucking business and it is a much friendlier unit to operate and actually knows my home address.
Summary: at 1st I was pleased with it.it has almost all the truckstops on it.i like that it has the rest areas and mm on it too. my problem with it is that it tends to freeze up on me...and often. another issue I have with it is that the view it gives me is wayyy to far up.i can't tell what type of off-on ramps i'm coming up on(like my tom-tom).it shows me things i'm not interested in,like towns and roads.all in all I would not recommend this gps to another truck driver.i'm...
Summary: My husband recently started driving a truck over the road and this is one of the items we bought before he left for the first time. He has been using it for approximately six months now and wouldn't be without it. It has proven to provide better instructions to his deliveries than his dispatcher in some cases!!
Summary: of all the nice features there are it is too bad the maps arn't accurate. Exit pictures are nice but frequently wrong. It will try to rout me all the way around Indianapolis because it doesn't know where the truck routs are and tells weight limits on roads of 12000 lbs that are regular truck routs.
