    Best GPS for Big Trucks

    Any suggestions for GPS unit for big trucks?

    This unit has route planning, truck restrictions based on vehicle profile and type of load (hazmat). If you switch trucks you can have multiple profiles. I know GPS units are not 100% but have used Gamin for my wife's car and it is pretty good.

    So anyone using this or have a better suggestion?

    I am not endorsing that site. Just chose that link because they have a good description. If you like this unit you can get it for aroound $200 online.

    Probaply between Garmin and Rand McNally.
    I use the Rand and I'm happy with it.
    Remember none of them are perfect and likely never will be.

    My boss has a Magellin (not sure if that's spelled correctly ...). He says it was the biggest waist of money he ever spent.

    Still didn't alert him to a couple of low bridges.
