The new Quick-Tabs feature allows drivers to see critical information such as the distances to weigh stations, travel centers, rest areas and mile markers at a glance.

The new Junction View with Lane Assist provides drivers with 3D images of upcoming highway junctions as well as lane guidance and enhanced turn-by-turn directions. The new State Mileage Log tracks miles within a state for IFTA reporting, and the Hours-of-Service timer enables drivers to easily track their on-duty, off-duty and driving time.

"As a leader in the trucking industry, it is our job to do what we can to simplify the lives of the professional driver," said Sally Washlow, senior vice president of marketing and sales, Cobra Electronics. "The new features of the Cobra 7750 Platinum not only provide additional information to get drivers to their destination in the most efficient way, but it also helps them with responsibilities such as mile tracking and hour logging."

The 7750 Platinum also features the TeleAtlas map, which has more U.S. road coverage, more dock-to-dock coverage and more trucking attribute coverage on secondary highways, the company says.

Like its predecessor, the Cobra 7750 Platinum includes the 33,000 ProMiles Software Development Corporation and TruckDown Info International truck-specific points of interest, such as routable travel center locations, detailed amenity information, fueling stations, restaurants, heavy-duty towing, truck and trailer repair shops, truck-friendly hotels, weigh stations and certified scales. It also features more than 12 million standard TeleAtlas points of interest and branded icons.

The 7750 Platinum also comes with three months of unlimited downloads from Cobra's AURATM Camera & Driving Hazard Database, which alerts drivers to the locations of fixed speed and red-light cameras, dangerous intersections and known speed traps.
