The recently introduced Garmin dezlCam 785 was created with the professional big rig driver in mind. In addition to coming equipped with navigation abilities, the Garmin also features a built-in dash cam to record and store your routes along the way. Loaded with features, the 785 is a valuable tool for truckers to have at their disposal.
The many navigation tools of dezlCam 785 include the maps that provide detailed notifications and warnings found on major roadways. The much-needed information may include bridge heights, sharp curves and steep curves. Drivers need to simply enter the height, weight, length and width of the vehicle and trailer along with the type of load carried. The unit then provides truckers with the best routes available depending on the size and weight of the truck. In the event that trailer sizes vary, simply modify the settings with a simple push of the button.
When in need of driving directions, the dezlCAM 785 provides verbal instructions through the powerful speakers. The volume ensures directions are clearly heard and understand despite road noise. Drivers also get visual turn-by-turn instructions thanks to the full-color seven-inch display screen.
Along each route, the Garmin makes it easy for truckers to locate ATMs, food, fuel, lodging, showers and rest areas. The device is also handy when needing to find a place to park for the night. When unexpected mishaps occur, the Garmin’s truck and trailer service directory contains more than 30,000 locations offering repair services throughout North America. At a glance, truckers also see when service stations remain open after hours.
A convenient log enables users to document service dates and repairs. The log also makes it easy to keep track of a truck’s information including fluid and tire changes, tire pressure and mileage.
Keeping maps and Garmin software up to date is easy thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi. Truckers automatically receive notifications when updates become available. Merely use the controls on the Wi-Fi screen and get the upgrades needed to ensure the dezlCam provides the latest available information.
Link a Bluetooth-enabled mobile device to the Garmin and enjoy hands-free calling via the incorporated microphone and speakers. Truckers may also receive notifications of incoming calls, texts, app alerts and other information.
Dash Cam Benefits
The dezlCam 785 continually records and stores information pertaining to the travel route. Use the GPS overlay to monitor date, time and speed. The cam is an easy way to verify information when collisions or other situations occur. The data can then be downloaded to a mobile device to review or share the footage. The camera is also easily removed from the mount when needing to take still images.
In addition to recording travel time, sensors in the dash cam provide drivers with forward collision and lane departure warnings via audio and visual alerts.
The Garmin additionally comes equipped with a truck monitoring system that enables fleet owners and operators the convenience of easily tracking vehicles. Send text messages or other communications when needed to provide delivery addresses or other notifications.
