The dezl OTR500 is 5.5 inches wide and features a high-resolution touchscreen display, adding to the product family that includes the dezl OTR700/800/1000.

They all include PrePass weigh station bypass, allowing those with an active PrePass account to receive on-screen notifications about coming weigh stations and bypass options.

Other features include load-to-dock guidance showing potential loading zones and storage lots near a destination, popular truck routes, and custom truck routing based on vehicle sizes and weights. Road warnings account for bridge heights, weight limits, and sharp curves.

Smart features include the Garmin voice assistant, Tripadvisor traveler ratings, live fuel prices, traffic, and weather when paired with the Garmin Drive mobile app on a smartphone.
