Customised truck routing

One of the best features of this particular sat nav is that it allows you to customise the information that is held, which will, in turn, will enable you to have a route that will work for your vehicle.

This will ensure that you are always safe and that you will not get into any trouble when you are driving. This is particularly useful when you are travelling on roads that you don’t know.  Another significant aspect of this sat nav is that you can always change the information it holds; you have several profiles stored on one device, which can be nice and easy to switch between.

Voice control

Your hands should never leave the wheel, and this sat nav helps you make sure that this happens. You can control your navigation and access the menus using only your voice, which keeps you and others on the road safe.
