Our take on the Garmin dēzl™ 560LMT

by Dominic Devito
Garmin

Who needs a portable navigator?

Portable GPS puts you in touch with the world when you're on the road. Tap the restaurant icon, and it asks you what kind of food you're looking for. Type in "Mexican," and you're eating a burrito before you know it. A portable navigator not only gets you to your destination, it can also find museums, theaters, and other spots along the way. Many navigators receive traffic reports, so you can avoid jams. Other cool features range from hands-free calling to 3D graphics and lane guidance. Best of all, you can move a portable easily from car to car, a big plus for multi-car families.

n�Maps

Garmin talked to large-vehicle drivers about the unique challenges they face on the road, then designed the dēzl 560LMT portable navigator for truck and RV guidance. It features a free traffic-information service that lets you know about congestion in your area so you can find a better route. You can keep up on road changes with up to four map updates per year without any additional costs. It'll get you through the long haul without endangering your cargo and it works great in your car, too.

Be the envy of your convoy
Tired of looking at a small screen from the driver's seat? The dēzl 560LMT features a 5" touch display which gives you plenty of map detail. You'll have access to road maps for the entire U.S. and Canada, plus much of Mexico. Truck-specific points of interest will come in handy when it's time to find a shower or weigh station. Text-to-speech voice prompts say the actual names of roads at upcoming turns, and you'll hear them easily over engine noise through the extra-loud built-in speaker. You'll also get lane assistance and junction view to keep you in the right lane when you're at complicated intersections.

Worried about possible dangerous road conditions? The 560LMT provides upcoming road info, such as sharp curves and high winds. You'll also get a heads-up for steep grades so you can downshift accordingly. If you're in an area with a lower speed limit for trucks, the 560LMT will alert you on the screen to help you avoid an encounter with smokey. And it's got a rear-view camera input so you can see what's going on behind you when you're backing up.

Over-the-road ready
The dēzl 560LMT includes a preloaded NTTS Breakdown Directory so you can find a truck repair shop nearby in case of rig trouble. It even provides 24-hour road service listings for late-night truck emergencies.

The dēzl 560LMT also provides specialized routing for truck-related restrictions on most roads in the contiguous 48 states and Canada. You can specify height, weight, length, width, and hazardous materials criteria, and the navigator will provide the best, safest route to your destination — RV owners can do the same. The 560LMT also tracks your HOS (Hours of Service) and logs your mileage by state for IFTA purposes.

Don't let traffic keep you from your next pickup or drop
The dēzl 560LMT includes a FM-TMC traffic-info receiver which keeps you updated on potential delays in most metropolitan areas. The 560LMT can offer detailed information on the cause of the delay, and save you time by finding a quick way around the problem. Best of all, you pay no subscription fees for the life of your navigator.

Stay connected with Bluetooth®
The dēzl 560LMT's built-in Bluetooth connectivity allows you to conduct phone calls hands-free with your compatible phone. You can keep in touch with friends and family without diverting your attention from the road ahead. Most points of interest in Garmin's database include the phone numbers, so you can call ahead with the one tap of the screen to make reservations at hotels or check parking availability at truck stops.

OTR (On The Road) Navigation: The Garmin dezl 560-LMT was designed by truckers for truckers, with features that are tailored to the OTR (On The Road) trucking industry.

Custom Truck Profiles: You can enter data about the rig you're driving (such as width, overall length, height, gross weight, maximum weight per axle, and number of trailers) or what you're hauling (hazardous materials like explosives, compressed gases, flammable liquids or solids, corrosives, etc.). Multiple truck profiles can be stored in the memory.

Note: Entering your vehicle profile does not guarantee that your vehicle's characteristics will be accounted for in all route suggestions. It is your responsibility to account for your vehicle's height, length, weight, and other relevant restrictions when driving.

Warning Icons: With your truck profile entered, the dezl 560-LMT will display warning icons along your route that affect your travel. Warnings include size/weight restrictions, hazmat restrictions, road conditions (grounding risk, lateral wind, narrow road, sharp curves, steep grades), and upcoming weigh stations.

Truck Speed Limits: Trucking speed limits appear if they are lower than the posted automotive speed limit, and you have the ability to correct the speed limit on the dezl 560-LMT so you have the most accurate data at all times.

NTTS Breakdown Directory: The NTTS (National Truck & Trailer Services) Breakdown Directory is pre-loaded into the unit. The dezl 560-LMT combines National Truck and Trailer Services (NTTS) Breakdown Directory POIs with Navteq trucking POIs to provide you the most comprehensive, trucking-specific POI list. You can search for truck-related points of interest, such as truck repair facilities, including those with 24-hour service.

Exit Services: The Exit Services function lets you search roadway exits for truck stops, food, lodging, rest areas, and weigh stations so you are never left guessing what is around the bend.

Note: Exit service information is only available on controlled-access roads, such as interstates or motorways.

IFTA Logging: You can use IFTA Logging to archive data needed for International Fuel Tax Agreement documentation, such as fuel-purchase data and miles driven.

Jurisdiction Summary: The jurisdiction summary lists data for each state or province in which your vehicle has operated during each quarter. The jurisdiction summary is only available in some areas.

Hours Of Service: You can use the Hours Of Service feature to record your working hours, which will help you comply with safety regulations. You can record the following hours of service.

  • Off Duty: Record the time you are off duty.
  • Sleeper: record the time you are resting in the sleeper.
  • Driving: Record the time you are driving a commercial motor vehicle in operation. 
  • On Duty: Record the time you are on duty, but not driving a commercial motor vehicle.
Note: This device is not an approved substitute for paper logbook recording requirements under Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations. Drivers should comply with all applicable federal and state paper logbook requirements.

Trip Reports: You can conveniently export all the device's trucking logs for improved reporting and tracking of each trip. The unit's trucking logs can be stored on the unit's internal memory or external microSD card (sold separately).

Backup Camera Compatible: The dezl 560-LMT features a 3.5mm video input on its mounting cradle. If a composite video backup camera has been installed in your truck, you can view the output of the camera on the dezl 560-LMT. Simply plug the backup camera into the unit's 3.5mm video input. You will need a composite-to-3.5mm video cable (sold separately). The camera output will appear whenever a video signal is present.

Navigation Features

GPS High-Sensitivity Receiver: The Garmin dezl 560-LMT is equipped with a high-sensitivity WAAS-enabled GPS receiver which enables faster GPS performance. It must acquire a GPS (Global Positioning System) satellite signal in order to navigate.

Note: If you are indoors, near tall building or tree, or in a parking garage, the dezl 560-LMT cannot acquire satellites. Go outside to an area free from tall obstructions to use the dezl 560-LMT.

Built-in GPS Antenna: The unit has a built-in antenna in its top panel. In order to obtain an optimal signal, the unit must have a clear, unobstructed view of the sky. If the unit is mounted in a truck with a coated windshield or an in-screen heating system, there may be difficulty in obtaining a good signal.

Pre-loaded NAVTEQ Maps: The Garmin dezl 560-LMT comes pre-programmed with NAVTEQ's City Navigator (NT 2011.31 ALL) street maps for the entire United States (including Alaska & Hawaii), Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Canada, and Mexico. The maps feature nearly 6-million points of interest (POIs), such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and attractions.

Note: You can purchase additional MapSource map data from Garmin and load the maps to the dezl 560-LMT's internal memory or inserted microSD card (via USB connection).

Free Lifetime Map Updates: The Garmin dezl 560-LMT includes free lifetime map updates which give you the most up-to-date maps for the life of the Garmin GPS unit. You can activate your free lifetime map updates service at www.mygarmin.com and download up to four map updates per year as soon as they become available. It can only be used for this Garmin GPS unit.

Note: Free Lifetime Map Updates entitle you to receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on the Garmin website, for this specific Garmin product only until this product's useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter. The updates you receive will be updates to the same geographic map data originally included with your Garmin product when originally purchased.

Touchscreen Display: The unit features a bright, 5.0" (diagonal) widescreen,  WQVGA, color TFT LCD with touchscreen controls. The display has a resolution of 480 x 272 pixels and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The screen has a manual brightness adjustment.  You can select one of three color modes for the display screen:

The dezl 560-LMT offers male and female voices of various languages. You can also download custom voices from the "Garmin Garage" website.

Turn List: When you are navigating a route, the turn list displays turn-by-turn instructions for your entire route and the distance between turns.

Next Turn: When you are navigation a route, you can view the next turn on the map and the distance and time left before you reach the turn.

Lane Assist with Junction View: Lane assist with junction view guides you to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. It realistically displays road signs and junctions on your route along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation. As you navigate your route, the unit will provide detailed diagrams of the proper lane to travel when maneuvering a complex interchange.

Good unit

Written By Mark, NYC on Sunday, August 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
So far I have the unit for about 2 weeks now. Im impressed with the processing speed of the unit and responsivness of the screen. It gives you possible suggestions much quicker without finishing typing, much quicker than other garmin units I had. Its pretty fast in finding route once you press go. I have seen other truck navigations systems that take much longer. I have not tested the traffic feature because I use Google Maps on my phone which is very accurate. Overall, Im very happy so far.
Pros:
Fast, accurate, fast reroute, good suggestions
Cons:
It doesnt show you what side of the street address is on and it doesnt route you for the address to be on your RIGHT all the time.

Garmin dezl 560 LMT

Written By kurt, West Palm Beach, FL on Monday, June 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I would not recommend this product as it CANNOT be trusted. In the RV mode it makes the worst decisions as to the route to take. Almost every time we have used it, it has either routed us way out of the way, taken us off of an interstate way before it made any sense. gave false warning about road characteristics...etc . If I could give it a zero I would have done so!!
Pros:
none
Cons:
Bad routing False warnings Worthless

Shipped very fast, GPS works just like it's supposed too.
Pros:
Big enough screen too see easily
Cons:
Stupid bean bag mount does not stay in one place in a big truck, had to buy a separate windshield mount for it.

Commercial Vehicle

Written By Anonymous, Monroe Twp., NJ on Sunday, February 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The map update was not ready to update when i purchased it. I talked to two techs to set up GPS to lead me TO the tunnels but not the Belt Parkway and ALL other parkways in NYC in a commercial vehicle. I wish there was a setting to say commercial vehicle. Besides all that, the big screen is a plus. The alerts of a camera at the intersection and the arrows of which lane to be in is really cool. I have to call Garmin back to set up how to find area parking lots when i get to my destination quickly. This Garmin does what it says!
Pros:
Lots of extra features for Truckers.
Cons:
No real setting for commercial vehicles. Updating when exiting is alittle slow.

Over all the GPS works Great. minor glitches like posted speed limit and displayed limit are not accurate. and to pan ahead and view the rest of the map is not an option. Bluetooth works great speaker works great Screen size is perfect. A must buy for any trucker!

Could be better

Packed with features but doesn't have mile marker feature and often takes you down streets a big rig has no business being on. Some maps aren't accurate and neither is some truck stop or scale points. Works fairly well but not sure it was worth twice as much as a regular Garmin.

A good buy.

I like the options and setting so you can set it for your load. I trust it more than the one that came with my truck.
Pros:
Ability to save Load dimensions and weights
Cons:
It needs to be clearer when taking an exit with multiple options so you don't take the wrong lane.
