Summary: I do not know how I managed to drive a truck without using commercial GPS. I purchased WorldNav on line and glad I did it. Screen is big and device looks rugged. Speakers are loud and routing is so far been great. I travel a lot and having this type of GPS is essintial. I like that device offers on the screen preview of route and shows all the restrictions as you travel. Maps are updated 3 to 4 times per year and I like that. Put recently rear view camera on the device.
Summary: I purchased my system almost 1 year ago. I think that my knowledge of roads in US is not very good. The WorldNav GPS system was a godsend to me. On many occasions although it did not route it the way I thought it was right I followed it to find that suggested route is actually better. I think it is the first time I had a system where I could call company to ask a question and not spend 2 hours to look for an answer in the manual.
Summary: im a commercial truck driver that delivers hazardous materials. I bought this product thinking it would help, but became a total nightmare. The minute I received the gps the sd card was corrupted so they needed to send me a new one. The device is extremely slow and is not accurate at all. I would not recommend this product to anyone else especially truck drivers.

Summary: Any trucker that used this would toss this out the window so fast. Very unreliable. Very primitive graphics, truck routing is pretty much a gimmick. Any road that is not assigned a number designation is considered a restricted route. This is unreal and criminal if you ask me. They are selling technology from 2001 at top top dollar and the bottom line is, it don't even come close to doing what it promises it will.
Summary: I got this unit to drive my semi. Routing is excellent around Chicago and Indianapolis. I have this GPS for several month now. I love big screen. I used to play with Garmin and I could not see much. I do not use this GPS for movies or for reading books. I think my DVD player in the truck probably better. For routing I would strongly recommend. Big screen for a person of my age is must. I have now couple of friends that purchased the unit from Pilot and are very happy.
Summary: Teletype 720060 7-Inch Worldnav Truck Portable GPS Navigator We thought we'd done our research, and chose to believe the positive reviews (about 50%) Big mistake. The graphics are primitive and dark, it's difficult to leave the map, do some searching and return to the map without potentially losing your route. Some common sense locations are missing or almost impossible to find: i.e., "Rest Areas"!!!
Summary: The Worldnav Teletype 7200 series is a great idea. It is way over stated by the manufacturer. If you haul hazmat or over sized loads, this unit "may" be of benefit. Otherwise, go with a better known more feature packed unit like the Garmin or high end Magellan's. The address search is very cumbersome, the built in auto select feature is way out of wack. Usually not even in the same state. It does have a totally useless USB interface.
