Summary: I am an OTR truck driver and have used many different GPS units over the years.I bought the Dezl 560 and paid over 325$ for it only to have my faith in Garmin totally destroyed.This unit has been anything but useful. Not only are the maps complete trash,routing you into restricted zones,putting you miles out of route and doing the most ridiculous U turning only to change its mind and start the whole missguided process over again.But the logic it uses is also completely...
Summary: I will never buy a Garmin again I'm ready to throw it out the window it is the worst GPS for a truck driver it will not up date and sends you in circles and I let every one know how bad it is.
Summary: I am a commercial driver. And this unit has the worst routing EVER. I drive routes I know very well to be approved truck routes and this unit has NO information about them or list them as trucks not allowed. I have done 3 updates and reset and everything possible. Yet it still tries to send me down roads or streets where trucks are not allowed and tells me some streets or roads I use are not truck allowed. It freezes at least 3x a week and requires a restart.
Summary: This item is made for semi's. Even with the few vehicle descriptions being toned down and accurate for our 16' box truck; the unit (and it's software) still act as if you are driving a 52' big rig. Another software shortcoming is that this unit assumes that you are driving for a large company with logbooks etc. The constant error messages about the driver logging in to record his or her hours per day is absolutely annoying.
Summary: Life time map updates is not a selling point. First, the updates DO NOT UPDATE the maps which stay out of date. Highway construction that takes YEARS to complete still does not show up in maps. Second, the effort to update takes HOURS to download. Even with all that, Garmin does not match competitor features, no highway mileage marker, next truck stop, next rest area. A very mediocre product.
Summary: Horribly inaccurate, frustrating, infuriating. Gets you lost worse than you probably would if you had no GPS, no maps, etc. This thing seems to have little clue as to which are legal truck routes in NYC and which aren't, and often tells you there are height restrictions when none exist. I own a small business and make deliveries daily throughout the 5 boros.
Summary: I purchased a Garmin GPS in February and after using it for 5 trips, in May the screen cracked while typing on it. Garmin refuses to replace it. They refuse to admit that the unit was defective. After looking at units at Best Buy, I agree that it shouldn't break while typing on it. Mine did. Also, the unit was always a bit wonky, it would take forever to start up if it was plugged into the car charger.
Summary: sent me under a 12'6" bridge in Chicago, luckily had a wait out. routes mainly on freeways except in major cities where it routes you straight thru on truck routes. is supposed to be using practical miles but doesn't. Locks up a lot, so far reset has been working for me. very frustrated with it. only pro is the 7" screen.
Tested for 6 months = IT FAILED MISERABLY for BIG Rigs

Summary: If a reviewer states "I've had this GPS for 3 days now and it is absolutely the best GPS in the universe blah, blah, blah"... move on to a more intelligent review. It will take a couple of months of hard use to make a fair evaluation ! I pull a large RV 5th wheel (13 feet high x 37 feet long). Like most RVer's we do not camp in the interstate rest areas. If you do - this is the GPS for you. If you drive from exit to exit on interstates only - this is the GPS for you.
