OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today announced the oversized dēzl OTR700/800/1000 GPS truck navigators. For a clear view of the road ahead, the new dēzl series features a 7-, 8-, or an extra-large 10-inch display option that can be easily switched from traditional landscape to portrait mode.1 In addition to large, easy-to-read HD touchscreens, the new dēzl series offers industry-best load-to-dock guidance, popular truck routing, and custom truck routing2 for the size and weight of a driver’s rig.
“The new dēzl navigators offer over-the-road truck drivers exactly what they’ve been advocating for behind the wheel—extra-large navigation screens that clearly display the information that matters most to professional truckers,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “These navigators also add slick new capabilities, such as highlighting routes on the display to show popular paths used by other truck drivers.”
The innovative popular truck routing feature indicates routes commonly used by fellow truckers to help increase situational awareness in unknown regions. What’s more, the new dēzl lineup introduces industry-best load-to-dock guidance – allowing drivers to see specific loading zones and storage lots to bypass common public entrances when approaching their destination. Offering truckers the best experience behind the wheel, the new dēzl series comes with several mounting options, including a powered magnetic mount with heavy duty suction cup, a screw down mount, and a 1-inch ball adapter with an AMPS plate compatible with RAM mounting systems.3
These oversized navigators are loaded with core trucking features necessary for over-the-road truck drivers. Drivers can input the size and weight of their truck on their dēzl navigator to receive custom truck routing and take advantage of road warnings to see alerts for upcoming bridge heights, weight limits, sharp curves, steep grades and more. Thanks to a preloaded directory of Truck and Trailer Services, drivers can find preferred truck stops by brand or amenities. Truck-friendly parking information and timely break planning notifications help truckers make the most of each stop. With built-in Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and a revamped voice assistant option that simplifies startup commands to “Ok Garmin”, truckers can organically talk to their dēzl navigators and keep their hands on the wheel. They can also use the intuitive display to easily view TripAdvisor® traveler ratings, and to find millions of popular places to explore by name with preloaded Foursquare® points of interest. The dēzl series includes map updates of North America and built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity makes it simple to keep maps and software up-to-date without using a computer.
When the new trio of dēzl navigators are paired with the Garmin Drive™ mobile app4, truck drivers can access live fuel prices, traffic and weather, as well as phone notifications and photoLive traffic camera updates. Additionally, the GPS navigators can be paired with Garmin’s wireless backup cameras5, or third party backup cameras6 to easily see behind a truck when reversing. The dēzl series also works with the Garmin eLog™ compliant ELD7 for subscription-free Hours of Service (HOS) recording.
Available now, the new dēzl series has suggested retail prices ranging from $399.99 to $799.99. To learn more, visit garmin.com/dezl.
