The 5 Best Truck GPS Systems January, 2017 (And 7 Other Models)


GPS units have become an indispensable tool for truck drivers, since their job requires them to drive from one place to another, sometimes to locations they have never gone to before. GPS units specially designed for truckers not only help them find their destination, but also give them other useful truck-related information to make their driving easier.

This page provides a list of GPS models that were designed specifically for use in trucks with information on truck restrictions, speed limits meant specifically for truckers, and truck-specific points of interest like truck stops, weigh stations, convenient parkings, and lodging accomodations with large parkings.

The models listed here are specifically tagged by their manufacturers as truck-specific with features beneficial for truckers and displays ranging from around 4 inches to 7 inches or more.
