Driving trucks is not easy, especially when it’s going to be a long-haul drive. Even if the drivers are already professional and have been doing the job for quite some time, they still need to be reminded from time to time of the route, road signs, and speed limits. The Cobra GPSM 7700 Pro will give them all of these functionalities and features, and will definitely be a great companion on the road.
The Cobra GPSM 7700 Pro is a navigation system specifically designed for trucks and it has a routing system designed for these types of vehicles. It can take the truck’s dimensions (height and width) and its limits which the device uses for computing the best possible route based on state, as well as national, truck restrictions.
The 7700 Pro comes with a 7-inch widescreen display which is very ideal for big trucks. Though the screen is relatively big, the device does not carry on too much weight. The display is also bright enough for the driver to clearly see the images on the screen.
Another interesting feature of this Cobra GPS device for trucks is the so-called ProMiles. This feature contains a huge database of travel centers with information shower availability, internet access, food choices, and a lot more. In addition to ProMiles, this device also has the feature called TruckDown which gives more lists of Points of Interests for the truck drivers. The list includes towing companies, repair shops, truck stops, restaurants, lodging, laundry, pharmacies, etc.
The Cobra GPSM 7700 Pro is also very truck driver - friendly. It has the feature AURA which alerts the driver for any upcoming speed cameras and red light cameras. It also includes early notifications on possible dangerous intersections and speed traps. The device indeed does as much as it can to keep the driver from getting a ticket.
The device’s road guide is optimized for truck as the voice is loud enough to hear even with noisy background. The sound was also very clear and helps a lot when it says the name of a street, especially the difficult to pronounce ones.
The 7700 Pro GPS device does not only compute for the shortest route to any given destination. It is able to calculate multiple route options, including routes not passing by toll roads, or routes that totally avoid freeway. More so, it is also capable of calculating an optimized route should there be multiple destinations.
The Cobra GPSM 7700 Pro already comes equipped with detailed map coverage specific to truck route for most of the states, as well as Canada.
This truck GPS from Cobra is indeed a best value for truck drivers. With its price of $379.99, it is definitely a worthy purchase with all the benefits that come with it.
