GPS

 

ALK Technologies makes a system called co-pilot GPS software for cars or trucks.Dell carries the system for the cars from ALK but not for semi's

I would say it is a very product for cars.Very easy to use

It is not meant for semi-trucks.It doesn't know the different roads and low bridges that big trucks are not allowed to drive on

Window mount leaves a mark - I bought the sand bag mount which sits on the dash

The memory that comes with this product doesn't allow you to download everything it can, however it does have enough for what is important. I haven't been able to store all of the silly downloads, like languages and vehicle choice colors. It doesn't...

Excellent product

 

This is the first I've owned a navigation tool other than Onstar. I love it. It was easy to set up and use right out of the box. My wife bought an extra memory card with it just in case so I know I have plenty of memory. I use my bluetooth phone for...

Have to be careful and only look at the map when stopped.
