Garmin dēzl OTR500 truck navigators includes load-to-dock guidance

Updated Mar 25, 2022

Garmin's dēzl OTR700 trucking-specific navigator ought to make trucking travel a little more predictable and somewhat easier. 

The dēzl OTR700 has an easy-to-read HD touchscreen, and custom truck routing based on the size and weight of your rig.

 The company said the dēzl OTR700 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. 

This oversized navigator is loaded with other features necessary for over-the-road truckers. Drivers can input the size and weight of their truck 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.

The dēzl OTR700 also has a preloaded directory of truck and trailer services, letting drivers find preferred truck stops by brand or amenities. The unit’s truck-friendly parking information and timely break planning notifications can help truckers make the most of each stop. 

The dēzl OTR700 comes with several mounting options, including a powered magnetic mount with a heavy-duty suction cup, a screw-down mount, and a 1-inch ball adapter with an AMPS plate compatible with RAM mounting systems.

And, it can be paired with the Garmin Drive mobile app to access live fuel prices, traffic, and weather, as well as phone notifications and photoLive traffic camera updates. Additionally, it can be paired with Garmin’s wireless backup cameras5, or third-party backup cameras6 to easily see behind a truck when reversing. The dēzl OTR700 also works with the Garmin eLog compliant ELD for subscription-free hours of service recording.

Garmin's dēzl OTR700 is available online for $399.99 and at most truck stops and travel centers that sell electronics and digital devices.
