Garmin nuvi 465LMT

Garmin-nuvi-465T-review

The Garmin nuvi 465LMT adds lifetime map updates to the company’s first GPS designed for long-haul navigation and delivery trucks. The 465LMT supports multiple truck profiles, selecting routes based upon restrictions such as height, width, length, weight and hazardous materials. Truckers can enter their truck’s dimensions and load restrictions, with the nuvi adjusting many routes based on the customized truck profile and available map data.
