no good for truckers!!!
on October 15, 2011
this is a poor gps for truckers, it tells you that the interstate is restricted to trucks or that the interstate or us hwys that are standared truck routes are resticted to certain weight or amount of axles or length!!! the cobra 5550 pro sends you way out of route of standard truck routes!!! it has a very small address data base!!! it will not route you into indiana, keeps poping up "route calculation failed please check restictions" no matter what city i put in, out of indiana o.k. into indiana no good, i live in indiana and deliver to indiana address's and i get the same thing "route calculation failed please check restictions" ????? tried to update at cobra.com i get "no updates available" ??? i drive on a dedicated account for one company and deliver all over the u.s. of a. and this product has not done it's job, you put in an address and it dose not no where it is, hence the small address data base, 8 address's in 1 week out it did not know!!!??? do not buy this product!!! not for truckers!!! i went by the 1 review listed at the time and cobras reputation and bought this 5550 pro, the person is wrong, i have been a truck driver for over 31 years, do not buy this fellow truckers!!! it dose a good job telling you about truck stops, rest areas and state scales on the route, but that is not why a driver pays that much for a gps!!!
