Garmin dezl 560LMT review

 

The Garmin dezl 560LMT is a new top of the line navigator designed for commercial truckers (though it is likely to be quite popular with RVers as well). It has an ultra-wide 5” screen, preloaded maps of the US, Canada and Mexico, and comes with...

Bluetooth quality worse than expected

Highly recommended. Garmin has made significant improvements since releasing the trucker-friendly nuvi 465T. For one thing, the 5” screen is much more appropriate for this audience. The dezl is based on the Garmin nuvi 2400 series, which offers quite a...

Amazing!

 

Plugged this into my car and was able to get directions to Area 51 without alerting the government!

Garmin dēzl 560LMT Automobile Portable GPS Navigator

 

Very Good

Works great for both my car and I drive a semi-truck for work. I work in the oil fields and you can have it make a line where you have been, this makes it easy to find your way back out of some of the fields we get into that have no real roads

None

Garmin dēzl 560LMT Automobile Portable GPS Navigator

 

I have had other Garmin GPSs in the past that were designed for cars. I have been very happy with them so, choosing Garmin for my Trucking GPS choice was a no-brainer. I was not disappointed. This is a very powerful trucking tool. It does take some...

Trip Planner. Hours of Service logger. Lifetime maps and traffic

None really, but I'd like to have a max vehicle speed entry so my trip times can be determined by my max speed as opposed to the posted speed limit since my company has our trucks governed at 62mph. If this option actually exists, I haven't found it yet

Garmin dēzl 560LMT Automobile Portable GPS Navigator

 

Great unit. Loaded with features for over the road truckers with Garmin reliability.

Great GPS Unit. Must spend some time on set up and understanding basics of this unit to get functionality. Awesome graphics, touch screen, speed and sound

When approaching a road restriction with your truck GPS doesn't give you very much info. Just "No Trucks Ahead" Must admit I'm still a new user and I use it more as a safety precaution. There may be a way to get more info on the restriction but have...

Garmin dēzl 560LMT Automobile Portable GPS Navigator

 

I am new to the CDL world and I need to have this. Unfortunately I don’t have a choice.I wish there was an App for commercial driving for the I-Pad. The screen is bigger and better and at least for a little more money, with the I-Pad you’re getting...

It is a valuable tool

It is way overpriced and it should have included a simple slide in case. I picked an off brand perfect little leather case with magnetic closing at Best Buy for about 7 bucks. It also should have a carry all pouch. I’m using a toiletry zipper bag that...

Worst Garmin ever-DO NOT BUY

 

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...

New weigh scales on I10 W.

 

Garmin did not notify me of the east bound scales on the west side off Mississippi coming out of Lousiana. They have been open for three years. Luckily I knew about them. I just recently updated my Garmin. Other than this so far I'm satisfied with my...

Garmin dezl 560LMT 5.0" GPS Navigator

 

If you are a trucker this is the one! Whats nice about the garmin dezl is it picks alternate routes with less traffic if you like. It also has a nice touch screen with loud volumn if you like. One other thing that the garmin dezl does is it keeps a log...
