The rugged dēzl 580 LMT-D features an easy-to-read 5.0-inch display, customizable truck routing3 for the size, weight and load of a truck, plus all the truck-specific navigation features found throughout the Garmin dēzl product line – like warnings for upcoming bridge heights and steep grades. Easy Break Planning, which considers hours driven and mandatory breaks, includes timely notifications with suggestions for upcoming truck stops, weigh stations, rest areas, and more.
The new Dispatch and Track1 entry-level truck monitoring solution allows business owners and dispatchers to send text messages and addresses to their drivers with the option to track their routes to completion.
Thiemo Weinschenk, senior product manager consumer automotive EMEA, said: “Not only does the dēzl 580 LMT-D take the guesswork out of break planning, but it also provides small businesses with a new and easy to use Dispatch and Track functionality.
“One of the features we’re most excited about is the dēzl 580’s built-in Wi-Fi, so truck drivers can easily update maps and software with a touch of a button and avoid having to use a computer.”
The dēzl 580 LMT-D is loaded with convenient features to help truck drivers efficiently navigate the best route to meet their needs. Junction views and lane guidance helps to navigate complex interchanges. Easy Route Shaping lets truckers effortlessly alter routes to include preferred roads or cities by using the touchscreen, and Truck Profiles makes it easy to quickly switch between trailer sizes with the simple touch of a button.
TripAdvisor® data gives drivers access to ratings for popular travel points such as hotels, restaurants, and attractions. Voice-activated navigation lets truckers control the navigator with their voice while their hands remain on the steering wheel. Spoken Garmin Real Directions™ add useful navigational cues with recognizable landmarks, buildings, and traffic lights to easily guide truck drivers to their destination.
Preloaded with maps of Europe, the dēzl 580 LMT-D offers free lifetime map updates4. The navigation device is compatible with the Garmin BC™ 30 wireless backup camera5 so drivers can see what is happening behind the truck when in reverse.
The Garmin dēzl 580 LMT-D has a suggested retail price of €379.99 (£349.99) and is expected to be available in September. For more information, visit www.garmin.com/dezl.
