OTR (On The Road) Navigation: The Garmin dezl 560-LT
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-LT 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.
