In the US ... Brilliant device to have ... Outside the US (Europe) causes problems
Mainly because of the non-English location names, no search, the European maps stored on the external memory card are not recognized or updated

Love it! I drive a truck for a living and the truck route guide is dead on! Wish I had bought one years ago.

I am a professional truck driver with over 2 million miles behind me. This is my 3rd garmin product but the first time I have used there truck specific navigation. This unit has many features that are really helpful. The weather radar, Live traffic , and voice command are very useful. the only thing that it can not do is navigate. This thing will take you off of the interstate thru a downtown area all on truck routes then put you back on the very same interstate. Leaving the interstate to go to a shipper it will find the most convoluted way to go that makes absolutely no sense. I programed it for a hazmat load and it wanted to route me thru downtown Dallas, TX. Coming out of Lincoln , NE it warned that I-80 does not allow 40ton gross vehicle weight and wanted to route me on county roads. If you are new to truck driving stay away from this unit it will get you into trouble. Thankfully I have a in dash Navigation system that is powered by TOM TOM. It gets it right 95% of the time and it is not even truck specific

I have been driving for 17 years most of that time with no GPS. I once I started using a GPS I used my phone and google maps. My company bought this for the truck I drive so I am using it now. But that being said. The truck info in this GPS weight limits road limits and so on is not very good. The gps likes to route around roads it thinks are restricted which more times than not are not. I love many of the features on this GPS but my phone and google maps routes me better. But no truck info on google so as I driver plan your route. read signs and this GPS can get you where you want to go. But never trust completely on your GPS. Many of the roads it says are okay are not and many of the ones is says are not are. I drive into and around Portland Oregon so maybe its just in this city but I bet it is a bigger issue.

The things I would like to see Garmin ad are the route options like on google it shows you two or more route letting you just click and go. also the ability to study the map by dragging it around so you can look over the route is much better in google maps. So if garmin teamed up with google or Google made a truck friendly GPS then we may have a winner. Until then I like using both just to see then use my head so I don't end up in trouble. After all the GPS is not going to pay the ticket if you end up on the wrong road.

So that all being said. Would I buy this for my self? Answer no! It has a lot of potential. But needs a lot of work.

bought a year ago. have updated maps 3 times. Each uses 8Gb of wifi allocation so its not free. Each update seems worse the the previous. Last one has given us wrong directions to 3 truck stops, walmart and multiple high way destinations. Put us on wrong road then gave us directions back to the same point to get on right road. smart phone and google maps works better. but keep your paper maps either way. seems correct about 80% of the time but driving a truck or an RV can get you in places you don't want to be.

My son really appreciates this GPS. He is a truck driver/ It is ICC approved and he has had no citations because the maps are accurate.
