These 5” wide-screen models offer a built-in loudspeaker and a number of features geared to truckers, such as truck-specific POIs and truck speed limits, as well as hours, fuel and mileage logging.

The 560LT includes lifetime traffic, while the 560LMT goes it one better, adding lifetime map updates as well. While targeting truckers, these units are sure to appeal to RV drivers as well. List prices are $469.99 and $529.99 respectively, with the units slated to be available in the first quarter of 2011.
