Magellan unveiled their latest truck-specific unit at an affordable price, the Roadmate 927OT – LM, for a manufacturer estimated list price of $399.
Why Do Truck Drivers Love Magellan GPS Units?
It’s simple, really. They’re built out of the box to address specific needs of truck drivers. Magellan is truly one of the best, and this particular model conquers a problem that has long faced truck drivers. A smallish 4 inch GPS for example is hard to see in the enormous windshield or dash. While such a size unit might be perfect in your sports car, it’s simply too small in a large vehicle. No worries with this model. 7″ screens are just big enough to make the visual HUD viewable from a couple of feet away.
Magellan’s Truck Driver Friendly GPS unit has everything in order where it counts:
- Extra large 7″ high definition touch screen for easy viewing
- Customizable truck routes based on vehicles height, width, length and weight
- Compliance ready for logging and reporting driving hours
- Bluetooth technology for hand-free calling to make the drive a safe one
