Cobra Electronics has introduced a portable GPS navigation system developed specifically for commercial truck drivers with features that include hours-of-service timers and state mileage logs.
The 8000 Pro HD has a 7-in. full-color high-definition touch screen that offers 3D images of highway junctions and lane guidance as well as turn-by-turn directions. The unit’s map database is provided by TomTom, providing last-mile dock-to-dock coverage.
Trucking-specific features include truck-optimized multi-point routing, over 33,000 ‘trucker friendly’ points of interest, logs to track state/province mileages for IFTA reporting, and timers to help drivers keep track of on-duty, off-duty and driving-time hours. The new GPS unit also comes with free live and predictive traffic information services as well as free lifetime map updates.
The 8000 Pro HD is being sold at travel centers, CB shops, truck dealers and on the company’s website with a suggested retail price of US$449.95.
