    It was just released... I haven’t used it much yet myself... so I’m sure it’s being worked on and not close to the final version... but a free app that is trying to serve all drivers seems like a good thing... better than google, if it’s truck specific, and cheaper than Garmin or RM

    I like my RM... but I know a few drivers that aren’t spending or can’t spend too much on a dedicated GPS solution.

    You can get a iPad for that price, have better specs, longer battery life, and all the functionality of an ipad. Hard pass Garmin.

    I got an email for this new tablet version. Expensive but has some good features. Directions right to the docks. They are using a different map supplier and it updates daily! I was going to buy the Dezl 780 as it is on sale dirt cheap but I think I will wait a while to see how people like the new one.

    My 780 lasted about 3 yrs before battery died and even with a cord it wont function anymore . The batteries were not ment to be replaced , found a video I may try . I have been using phone and Google maps , maybe had 2 times where it took me into neighborhood but 99% of the time it's great. Sounds like a second hand iPad might be the way to go .

    Make sure it has cell chip in it. GPS chip is attached to it. Wifi only models do not have GPS.
