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...

Popup Adds on my Garmin.


It works for the most part. Takes me to where i want to go

If I'm sitting at home and want to find an address in another state it only gives me the option of finding an address in Michigan. It should have the option of changing the state. I haven't been able to do that. Other Garmin owners I've handed it to say I

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

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

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...
