Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced dēzl 760, the company’s first trucking navigator with a seven-inch display and a new Active Lane Guidance feature to help truckers confidently navigate intersections and exits. The dēzl 760 is packed with trucking-specific functions, such as route calculation based on truck attributes, trucking points of interest (POIs), Hours of Service (HOS) logging, an extra-loud speaker and backup camera support. Compatible with Garmin Smartphone Link, it is the only navigation device for truckers with the ability to receive real-time information 1 through a smartphone app, such as fuel prices, traffic camera images and weather. The Garmin dēzl 760 will be on display at the Garmin booth (#9033) at the Great American Trucking Show (August 23-25, 2012) in Dallas, TX.

“The new dēzl 760 is designed to meet the specific needs of truckers, helping to make their job easier and save time, fuel, and money,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “Its seven-inch display makes it easy for truckers to see all the information they need at a glance and allows for split-screen depiction of our new Active Lane Guidance. With features like trip data recording, border notices and real-time information through Smartphone Link, the dēzl 760 becomes a full-featured digital assistant in the cab.”

Truck-Specific Navigation

With detailed maps and leading Garmin navigation technology, the dēzl 760 provides truck-specific routes and turn-by-turn directions based on vehicle height, weight, length and carriage. Users can simply enter their truck’s profile and the device will consider truck-verified roads that are suitable for the truck’s characteristics. It also provides warnings of upcoming hazards such as sharp curves. The device can save multiple truck profiles and users can change the active profile at any point. Finding pit stops is a cinch with trucking specific POIs, including truck stops, weigh stations, dealerships and washes. Garmin Exit Services allows drivers to quickly search for upcoming POIs at highway exits. Also included are sunrise and sunset times to follow after-sunset regulations, mile markers to share a location with others, and state/country border notices to comply with legal requirements.
