Garmin Goes After The Truckers

Here's a question for the gadget-loving truck drivers out there: How many times have you misjudged the height of your truck, crashing into the bridge above you? How many times have you forgotten to keep the truck in a low gear while descending a steep hill? Because if you'd had Garmin's nüvi 465T satnav installed, it would have helped you avoided those schoolboy errors that you've probably never actually made.

The device boasts a large 4.3-inch screen and uses Navteq maps, and allows truck drivers to input the dimensions and load limits of multiple trucks. The satnav will automatically adjust routes based on this info, meaning your friendly truck driver should automatically avoid any problems en route.

For $599, it's on the pricier side of the satnav market, but it is a niche product, so you can't really have expected anything different...
