Summary: The 465T also provides specialized routing for truck-related restrictions on most roads in the contiguous 48 states. You can specify height, weight, length, width, and hazardous materials criteria, and the navigator will provide the best, safest route to your destination
For the price you just can't beat it. Garmin did a good job on this one.

Summary: The Garmin 465 is great for use in a Big rig or a motorhome. You can input the O.A.L. of the truck and trailer, the O.A.H. of the tallest point and the weight. The 465 will then tell you were the low spots, and tight turns are in the road ahead.
Summary: The traffic and speed limit icons are really handy. The warning when overweight on restricted road is a little annoying but may be neccessay. The lane for exit and refresh speed are excellent. (recalculates quick maybe 4 seconds)
Summary: After having used Google and Mapquest for years to get directions for my drivers, I started buying this model because unlike other GPS units this one allows you to input multiple truck profiles into the memory for recall later.
Summary: We bought this GPS for my husband is about to start a new job making regional runs and he needed a GPS that would not steer him wrong and lead him toward hazards like low clearance in his truck.
Summary: I drive a truck locally in souther ca. and it works great. I love the lane assist and traffic alert. It helped me get around san diego traffic. Lane assits is a big help around the L.A. freeway. Overall good device to by. Dont know how it is over ther road.
Summary: I can't imagine being a Tractor-Trailer driver W/O some kind of GPS. I had a cheapy for cars for over a year and glad I did. In upgrading and evaluating this one I concluded it has saved me more than a dollar a day in aggrivation, missed turns and getting lost. So it earns it price back in a year.
