In addition to new wearables and nüvis, we’re also introducing new truck navigators at this year’s CES, the dēzl 570 and dēzl 770. The two new devices are designed to meet the needs of truckers and address the unique challenges they face on the road. Large 5 and 7-Inch glass displays in a rugged housing make it easy to see information at a glance, even on a large dashboard. To assist truckers in the best possible way, the new dēzl devices add a range of new truck-specific features, such as easy route shaping, points of interest highly-rated by professional drivers, simple truck profiles and headset support (dēzl 770 only). Also new to the dēzl series are the latest navigation features from Garmin, including Garmin Real DirectionsTM, free HD Digital Traffic1 (dēzl 770 only), Up Ahead and Foursquare® data. Additionally, the dēzl 570 and dēzl 770 are compatible with the new BC 30TM backup camera2, which provides a live camera feed from the rear of the vehicle to eliminate blind spots.
With large 5 and 7-Inch glass displays and extra loud speakers, truckers can clearly see and hear directions and other driving-related information. The new simple truck profile3 makes entering trailer dimensions easier than ever before. Drivers simply enter size and weight to get customized routes that are suitable for their truck. If the device is transferred to another vehicle, it only takes the touch of a button to switch to another profile with different dimensions. With Easy Route Shaping, the new dēzl series even allows truckers to change their route to include preferred roads or cities.
Once on their way, trucking points of interests let drivers find truck-friendly pit stops that have been rated by other truckers with TruckDown, including truck specific parking, hotels and weigh stations. Along with trucking points of interest, dēzl 570 and 770 include millions of additional places from Foursquare, like restaurants, lodging and more. Truckers also have the ability to track their truck’s service history including oil changes and tire mileage, as well as Hours of Service (HOS) and International Fuel Tax Agreement Documentation (IFTA).
The dēzl 570 has a suggested retail price of $299.99 and the dēzl 770 has a suggested retail price of $399.99. Both devices are expected to become available in the first quarter of 2015. For more information, visit garmin.com/dezl. The optional BC 30 backup camera has a suggested retail price of $169.99. The dēzl 570 and dēzl 770 are being showcased in the Garmin booth (South Hall 4 #35811) at this year’s CES.
