If you ever need to transfer the device to another vehicle, you can actually store information on 4 different vehicles and can use it as a standard (non-trucker-specific) GPS device as well, which is really nice and makes it quite a versatile product (it's nice to know when you are buying a specialized product like this that it has applicability for non-specialized situations as well). The Trucker 600 understands what road hazards exists that regular GPS software does not account for, such as height and load restrictions. This ultimately helps to circumvent most common problems from other devices like the unintentional routing of vehicles down roads that are impassible or have improper clearance for trucks of a large size. I'm not a fan of the fact that it doesn't have its own independent wifi connectivity and has to be run through a user's phone signal; thus, I've docked it a full star. But really, everyone owns a cell phone nowadays and can activate Bluetooth pretty easily. The device has free map updates for life included in the price; these are downloaded and transferred via phone.
If you have to have a GPS specific to truck driving and truck routes, this is not a bad option at all for the price. Recommended.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that you enter your vehicle information. If you have it set up for a car, but you are driving a truck, it will take you on unusable routes. On that same token, if you have it set up for a truck and use it in your car, it will take you on some odd route/longer paths. There are many options for customizing the type of vehicle you are using.
The actual interface when driving is pretty easy to use, but I didn't feel it was as intuitive as a Garmin set up. Maybe I'm just used to the latter. That said, it only took a few stops to become accustomed to the TomTom unit and how to navigate it. I love that it constantly shows you the speed limit as you're moving (not just the speed you are moving at), and would change the speed limit sign red if you happened to exceed the posted speed limit. Neat little feature. It's also fairly easy to add stops along the way for fuel or food while you're traveling. The screen is very bright, and that first time using it at night I was scrambling to turn the brightness down. I really like the base mount, as it uses a little plug and a magnet to slide the device in and out. Very fast and simple to use without trying to snap it into place. (I like to stash it when I park.) Another great feature is lifetime map updates! Some areas change constantly and I like that I don't have to worry about buying an expensive map pack down the line.
Compared to my old GPS, the screen on the 600 is beautiful. It is large and relatively high resolution. The only critique I have is that it can be too bright at night, even on the lowest setting. The "black" is more of a washed out grey. I understand that OLED is an expensive technology, but good black levels are a major factor in GPS displays.
Good mounts are included and more appropriate for use in a truck than the type included in car GPS units. The only thing better, and not so unreasonable for the price, would be one that is easy to pull in and out when switching vehicles.
The trucker has navigation that takes vehicle type and size into account, which is a major distinguishing feature. It generally works well and the display is nice. A longstanding issue with TomTom is that they have poor guesses at exact street addresses. Garmin is just better at knowing where on a street 965 would be. For whatever reason, TomTom has yet to address this.
Lane guidance is available in a basic fashion, but don't get your hopes up for the city streets where things are really tricky. For example, if I need to be in the middle lane because it will turn into the right lane before I need to take a right, the GPS won't mention it.
A big plus is that the signal strength is stronger than any GPS unit I've used. It gets signal where nothing else I own does.
Using the multi-touch screen for typing addresses is easier than my old units and generally the menus are basic and intuitive. I was curious about voice commands, which I had had decent success with on my ancient Garmin and with my phone in Google navigation. Unfortunately, it is terrible and slow. For me, it is not worth bothering with until they fix it.
Being able to plan my routes ahead of time on a phone is a big selling point. Unfortunately, this is another area that is not yet polished. The phone connects via Bluetooth, which requires me to make my phone visible in settings. Every time. This annoyance keeps me from wanting to use it at all. When connected, it gives the GPS information on traffic and speed traps, and syncs with any routes you have added on the app or web version on a PC.
My main desire for an app was to make custom routes ahead of time, similar to what I do in Google Maps. Unfortunately, the app does not yet do that. The only option is to set a start and end destination, and dragging on the screen does not make waypoints. Thankfully, the web version does have this feature. Perhaps it just hasn't been added to the app yet.
Also, since the app monopolizes the phone's Bluetooth, I can't use my traditional Bluetooth media and phone interactions with the vehicle sound system. If they use Bluetooth, all of this needs to be included in the GPS itself, and the GPS needs to be connected to the main sound system.
With a big, sharp screen and strong GPS signal, the Trucker 600 is a good GPS. But, there is still a lot of work to do to make it a great one.
