Garmin's dēzl line of navigation devices aimed at truckers

No two truckers are alike. Neither are the routes they have to drive.

That's why navigation device maker Garmin has crafted a line of trucking-specific GPS units that can not just help get you where you’re going but get there safely and on time. Garmin’s dēzl OTR 500/700/800/1000 GPS truck navigators do that and more. All are loaded with the sort of features today’s truckers need.
