Best ROUTING features on the market and not much else

 

As a driver, the most important feature of any GPS that proports to be truck-specific, is the routing engine of the device. This is afterall, why we should be interested in the devices out there. And as far as that goes, the 540 and her sisters the 440...

Pratical routing and a visual display of the route BEFORE it's entered as a route-this and the ability to have full control over stops and waypoints (50 per route) make it and it's sisters the 440 and 740 the best truck-specific ROUTING GPS

The POI and ALERTS could use a lot of help. Truck specific POIs do not show in thier own regard but under one general icon, making it neccesary to scroll the list to see what's up and comming

Biggest support disappointment of any software co.

 

Wouldn't call it a pro, but they have the niche on mileage for transportation which just adds to the fury

First and foremost, they are VERY PROUD of their licensing fees. They'll charge you a license for anything that touches one of their library files. Im a systems engineer for a large transportation company, and have used PCMiler for years. Our last upgrade

PC MILLER GPS 540 Customer Support is very poor.
