New dēzl OTR trucking navigator series
Make your time on the road more comfortable with the new dēzl OTR 610/710/810/1010 trucking navigators designed to help professional truckers simplify their over-the-road lifestyle. The newest navigators include larger, higher-resolution touchscreens spanning 6, 7, 8, and a powerful 10-inch model.
The newly refreshed navigators have come with a feature that allows drivers to view aerial imagery in high resolution with automatic Birdseye Satellite Imagery.
Furthermore, the larger navigators, with screens 8 inches and bigger, pack a split view map that exhibits weather conditions and routing details. Such models also feature the option to mount the device in any mode according to suitability.
Truck drivers can use unique truck routing based on their rig’s size and weight to drive with a heightened awareness of the route ahead, including notifications for forthcoming bridge heights, weight limitations, sharp turns, steep hills, and more.
Over-the-road drivers can also utilize the route planner tool to see a map of their overall itinerary and plan out fuel stops, rest stops, and overnight accommodations. The navigators will also include many features such as PrePass notifications, real-time services, and map updates.
The navigators are also compatible with the new trucking headsets, backup cameras, and Instinct 2 dēzl Edition trucking smartwatch and are available from $349.99 to $899.99.
BC 50 wireless backup cameras
When driving in reverse, a high-quality backup camera like the Garmin BC 50 series can greatly improve rearward visibility for drivers, reducing the danger of “blind zone” incidents. Garmin packs the BC 50 backup cameras with features to provide clear HD quality, a wide 160-degree field of view, a compact weather-resistant IP67 housing, and a long wireless range.
The BC 50 series include BC 50 ($199.99) & BC 50 with Night Vision ($299.99); the latter comes with NightGlo technology that can provide visibility at a range of 20 feet with illumination. Customers can also purchase a 50-foot extension cable, which increases the wireless transmission range to 100 feet, making it suitable for extended rigs and vehicle-trailer configurations that require a solid backup camera solution.
Similarly, the cameras are compatible with the new navigators and Garmin DriveSmart and Tread series.
