I just got back from a 2000 mile trip to the south of France and back using the Garmin and it performed flawlessly. Map updating was easy, I was able to load in camping areas and Aires using Garmins POI loader and the internal memory seems adequate for all the extra information. I also have speed camera warnings and "dangerous road segments" for France installed with no problems.
The screen is easy to read and the voice control works great. Use it to adjust volume, it's easier than going through menus.
All in all, very pleased with how this unit works.
Of course, it's no substitute for common sense and there will be times when you have to change your route, but this unit recalculated new routes quickly with no annoying "recalculating" phrase. It just gets on with it.
It's not perfect, but it's damn close.
- Have used an old Tom Tom originally designed for car use alongside road maps and common sense, this all being well got me around the trunk routes however in major cities such as London i had more luck than anything else so decided to take the plunge and go for the Garmin Dezl 760LM, so far it has not let me down taking me down routes large enough for the dimensions i have planned in (Wide abnormal loads).
I have still compared the route given via the Garmin with road maps to check bridge's etc as i still need to learn to trust it more, so far it has matched any route i could of generated and has not tried to take me down paths i should not attempt.
I have only used the product for 1 month of steady driving up and down the country delivering Wide, Abnormal loads in city's such as London, Glasgow, etc.
Constant pinging of when the speed limit is due to change (I may be able to turn this off, have not played about too much yet)
A touch pricey however it does the job
Fast start sequence
Voice command giving hands free
Can Bluetooth any smart phone
I would recommend this on my current experience if you can afford.
To input the dimensions and weight of the trucks and motorhome into the Dezl 560 is quite easy and most other functions are very similar to the old 760. I initially had a problem in the registration process, but in the end I logged myself out of the MyGarmin web site and did the rather girlie-thing of reading the instructions. To do this allow the process to take about 30 to 45 minutes, so don't do it just prior to going out.
The display is slightly larger than the 760 and gives more detail, including: speed, ETA, distance to next instruction, mode (truck/motorhome/car etc). It does come up with other types of warnings, for instance if it's windy: this occurred the other day after the truck had wobbled a bit and the trees outside were madly waving, so not overly useful.
So far it has only tried to send me down one 7.5 tonne road (near M1 junc 13), and when I ignored it and went along the A421, it whinged that I was on a restricted road. Now that leads to one of its problems: a few of my deliveries have been within 7.5 access only areas; on entering them the screen is filled by a warning notice with two options: STOP or Accept. Pressing STOP, cancels the route (not very useful) and Accept gets rid of the notice, only for it to reappear at the next junction, with the same bunch of kamikaze car drivers trying to get under the wheels of my trailer on city roundabouts.
Another failing of the (my) Dezl 560 is the lane indicator doesn't show which direction the exit of the next roundabout is.Read more ›
Firstly the traffic option with it is nearly useless. It picks up traffic that isn't there so leads you off on a detour you shouldn't have bothered with. The traffic information is also not complete so when it does detect traffic it send you off on a detour and you end up getting snared in more traffic which it says isn't there. This compared to modern smart phones which up to date and accurate it's a bit poor. As a case in point, when travelling from Devon to London, it gave me a green icon the whole way and I was travelling in London at rush hour which took me nearly two hours longer than it said I should have. It also looses signal for hours sometimes even when in city centres.
Secondly the route loading can take nearly 30 minutes on some occasions. Which is ridiculous. The worst is if you are in London and trying to get out you have to sit still in your vehicle until the satnav has loaded the route and as mentioned this can be like watching paint dry. If you get impatient and head off whilst its calculating it wont route from you current position but from where you were. So when it finally reaches 100% which like I said can take 30 minutes, it will just start again!!!! So you can get properly lost. The other major issue with this is if you are following the route and come across a road closure, you're screwed as it will start recalculating!
The final issue, is I'm not sure who set the speeds for driving a lorry as the arrival time is set on a vehicle doing 70mph. It does monitor your speed and adjust the arrival time to your average speed but this takes weeks or months of usage.
All in all, not a bad satnav for visibility and usage but the software is a bit 1990's. I use my iPhone in conjuction with this and get by.
