The new Garmin navigator designed exclusively for the trucking industry, dēzl 560LT, is now available and can be seen at the Commercial Vehicle Show on the Garmin stand 4K122.Dezl560LT_HR_100

Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, has introduced a range of special features ideal for larger vehicles or fleets. dēzl has a big five-inch display, built-in loudspeaker made specifically for noisy cabs and a number of additional user-friendly features including truck-specific points of interest (POIs), truck speed limits, hazards and service exits. It also has advanced navigation, route planning and calculation with Garmin’s nüRoute™ technology.

“dēzl is more than a sat nav, it’s a business tool to save drivers time, fuel and money ” says Fleet and Enterprise Product Manager, Mark Timms. “It’s big enough to be seen, loud enough to be heard and smart enough to direct you around truck-specific hazards. It is the ultimate combination of practicality and convenience.”

Especially designed for the European trucking market, dēzl 560LT, is a lifetime traffic-enabled navigator* which notifies drivers of traffic delays and road construction on their planned route and suggests appropriate detours around them.100510_AUT_4130.2

When deployed as part of a wider telematics solution even greater cost efficiencies and savings can be made.  A specific dēzl 560LTF bundle will be available in May and can be purchased via Garmin authorised Fleet Management Partners.
