PC Miler Navigator 450

 

From ALK Technologies and Rightway GPS, the same companies behind the previously tested Rightway Spotter 500 and the Rightway 550 portable navigation devices, comes the PC Miler 450 Navigator for Truck Drivers. This unit features many functions and...

The PC Miler 450 is a commercial truck-specific navigator, preloaded with maps, points of interest, and routing algorithms specific to big trucks. The CoPilot Truck 8 software is customizable for vehicle size and payload. Alternative routing modes make...

The customizable interface can be too complex, making hard work of accessing simple functions. The windshield mount cradle can be difficult to adjust to the right position.

The PC Miler 450 is a unique product that offers truckers turn-by-turn directions with a specificity unrivaled by any other GPS we've tested.

Impressive GPS

 

It is accurate with routing and is loaded with custom configurable features and is updatable online. Software is written by ALK which supports commercial trucking so the routing/clearance/weight restriction database is the best in the business

Unit stops navigating if you're not on a road and will not show your position on the map till you move to a road

550 model wont let you connect to copilot on a lap top

 

I sugest that you contact the manufacture of any gps you buy and find out if it is compatibal with the computer YOU own!!!!!!!!

it at least turned on when it should

nowhere in the pre sale documents does it tell you that there are compatibality problems with laptops running win 7 (64) bit. without this you cant update the maps or even log on to the copilot site

I have the 740 and it is hard to use

 

Rand Mcnally has free updates and is a lot better at entering address's You don't have to wade thru Canadian cities to find a town you want

I don't like it at all

not up to date and we have to pay for update sd memory card and the power cord hook up sticks out like a sore ; thumb, just like the worldnav. Very easy to break off the inside connector pin inside. which I did on my worldnav GPS

"does this unit show STAA routes and none routes in CA??"

 

Garmin 465T simply tells the driver to observe local truck route restrictions... After you've made the turn is a little late for that info! Does this unit have the same limitation???

see above.
