It's about time that someone starts producing a device that caters to a truckers needs. You would not believe the amount of times that trucks end up on a highway where I live that is off limits to commercial traffic due to bridge heights because they are following a GPS and not paying enough attention to the signs.

Yeah omegadraco that is true, but as far as GPS use, development, and features commercially, this is what they were initially released for. Truckers, and Taxi cabs as well as all commercial vehicles is what they were made for on a consumer, business end. ( http://www.12volt-travel.com/gps-navigation-accessories-truck-drivers-gps-navigation-c-24_695.html )   Truckers that end up on your road must be with smaller companies or owner operators that have not invested the money to get one of these type of devices I would imagine. The features on it are really nice all around it seems. A 5" display as well as the better display technology in these Tomtoms is very nice.

I don't get why more companies don't invest in GPS units for their employees. Sure, there's an upfront cost, but there's also a ton of added benefits. Of course, you still have to use some common sense and read signs as omegadraco pointed out!
