Portable GPS for Truckers
March 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
WorldNav Portable GPS offers advanced touch-screen truck routing for professional truck drivers.
Based on TeleType's navigation product line, WorldNav Truck Routing 3.5 is based on familiar portable navigation software, but takes into account commercial truck restrictions such as bridge heights and clearances, load limits, one-way road designations, left-hand and dangerous turn restrictions, and allowances. For example, a typical set of restrictions for a semi-trailer could be entered as 13'6" height, 80,000 lb weight, 53' length, and 96" width. Hazmat routing is also available. Pre-installed U.S. and Canada maps let you use the system right out of the box. Voice directions include street names in English or Spanish
The unit also features an MP3 and video player and more than 12 million points of interest. You also can add an unlimited number of your own points for future reference.
