Hit the open road with the dēzl 560LMT – the advanced navigator for the trucking industry. Designed with truckers in mind, the 560LMT has a large 5” display, an extra loud speaker, and external video input for backup cameras. We’ve also expanded the feature list to include trucking speed limits, truck-specific route highlighting, and trucking points of interest (POIs). And truck drivers aren’t the only type of drivers that will like the 560LMT – RV drivers will appreciate the ability to setup an RV profile and calculate routes based on height, weight and length restrictions. The dēzl 560LMT was made for life over the road.
