Last December when Rich made his 2012 predictions at gpstracklog.com he said Garmin would introduce a 7" device for truckers. Lucky guess, or?.... ;)
I am not a truck driver, but a 7" Garmin looks pretty cool. At a list price of $400... gee, I paid more than that for my Nuvi 3790! Screen resolution is 800x480 though, which is the same as the 4.3" 3790.
I wish they would take this same hardware and put something similar to the Montana software on it. :)
The dēzl 760LMT is the navigator with a big 7” screen designed specifically to make a trucker’s life easier. Not only can it guide you along a route customized for your truck and trailer, it helps ensure you’re in the proper lane with Active Lane Guidance. It also helps with IFTA and HOS logging. It also shows you exit services ahead, along with trucking points of interest (POIs). When you trust dēzl 760LMT to create a route for you, you’ll know it’s a good route for both you and your rig.
Track and Report Your Trips
The dēzl 760LMT makes logging and retaining trip information easy. You record fuel usage, and the 760LMT automatically records state mileage for IFTA fuel logging. Log your hours of service and driving status, and the 760LMT tracks your hours and automatically warns you of HOS violations. Conveniently export all logs for improved reporting and tracking of each trip.
With a large 7" high-resolution touchscreen display, dēzl 760LMT allows you to see tons of information in great detail. Clearly follow the highlighted truck-friendly route, view truck warnings, notifications and alerts. And only a dēzl 760LMT includes exclusive Garmin Active Lane Guidance (ALG). ALG shows you constantly updated animation of the preferred lane to be in. It also includes photoReal junction view, which provides photo-realistic views of upcoming junctions to guide you to the right lane at the right time. All of which are especially helpful when navigating complex highway interchanges in unfamiliar metros.
Navigate with Confidence
With detailed maps and turn-by-turn directions that speak street names loud and clear through the speaker, dēzl 760LMT provides specialized routing¹ to support truck-related restrictions in both the U.S. and Canada (customizable by height, weight, length, width and hazardous materials). Simply enter dimensions and load restrictions, and dēzl 760LMT guides you according to your requirements on a route that fits your load. The onboard Trip Planner lets you create multiple-stop routes and plan and save future trips. And, you can operate dēzl 760LMT with voice-activated navigation. It’s so easy, you just talk to it!
NOTE: Always defer to all posted road signs and road conditions.
dēzl 760LMT keeps you informed of upcoming road conditions, such as sharp curves, bridge heights, weight limits, high wind areas and restrictions, including no trailer or hazardous materials. A grade data field that appears on the map enables drivers to anticipate descents and ascents and shift accordingly. Trucking speed limits appear if they are different than the posted automotive speed limit. It also provides mile marker information. Plus its clock automatically changes time zones and provides sunrise/sunset times. You also receive notifications when crossing state or country borders. For added peace of mind, there also is a video input for backup camera compatibility.
Locate Trucking Service Areas and POIs
dēzl 760LMT has truck-specific POIs to let you search roadway exits for truck stops, food, lodging, rest areas, service locations, tire repair and weigh stations. Truck stop information includes a list of services offered, such as WiFi, showers and truck scales. And enhanced exit services let you know what services are available at upcoming exits along your route.
Includes Lifetime Map Updates
Right out of the box, the dēzl 760LMT comes bundled with nüMaps Lifetime™. Which means you can download the newest map data when it becomes available — no monthly fees or maintenance costs — for the lifetime of your device².
Includes Lifetime Traffic
A combination power cable/traffic receiver in the box gives you traffic services for the life of your device. You’ll avoid traffic jams and keep moving when your dēzl 760LMT alerts you and offers detours. No additional purchases are necessary — it’s 100 percent subscription-free traffic³.
Smartphone Link Compatible
Smartphone Link makes your smartphone the best thing next to your dēzl 760LMT. It’s an application available from Google Play. Smartphone Link creates a seamless navigation experience between your dēzl 760LMT truck navigator and an Android smartphone. It allows the devices to share information, such as saved and recently found locations, where you parked and your current destination. It also links your compatible dēzl to Garmin Live Services4, such as weather and fuel prices using your smartphone’s current mobile data plan. There’s no need for an additional data connection5.
For example, a subscription to Garmin Live Services Advanced Weather allows you to receive severe weather alerts and view animated radar images on the dēzl.
Make Hands-free Calls
For hands-free calling, dēzl 760LMT integrates Bluetooth® wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the 760LMT while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with the dēzl touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak into its built-in microphone. Enjoy convenient one-touch dialing for contacts and POIs.
