Garmin nüvi 465T

 

Garmin's truck-friendly nüvi 465T helps big riggers plan safe, legal routes.

Lifetime traffic updates included. Truck-specific routing for road restrictions. Extensive truck-centric POI database. Maps for U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. Multisegment routing. Lane assist. Truck and Car modes.

Expensive. No POI category for rest areas. Truck-specific data only for continental U.S.

The first brand-name truck GPS features Bluetooth hands-free, text-to-speech and traffic messaging, as well as height, weight and hazmat warnings, plus truck specific road signs.

Garmin nuvi 465LMT Automobile Portable GPS Navigator

 

Overall nice unit. Easy/intuitive to use.

Good size for dash. Easy to enter truck/motor home specifications. Like the way the entries set up an address book type list. Cell phone blue tooth works well

In the auto mode some of the routing is round about. It does get you there

Great Unit for Big Trucks

 

Overall, I have been pleased to own this unit. To bad it costs nearly $500. But after 3 years, it was worth it.

Great screen, does not wash out in sunlight. Has automatic ; switch from night to daytime screens ; Finding addresses gets better as they update the maps

I do not believe the Truck restrictions get updated as much as the maps do. I have driven a few highways that do not have anything posted, and shows restricted on the GPS ; I think that needs work
