Updated March 3rd, 2011 Garmin's second attempt at a "truck GPS" after the nuvi 465T in 2009 was shown at the CES show in January and goes under the dezl 560 name.
The dezl (pronounced Diesel of course) improves on the features of the nuvi 465 with some new dedicated features like IFTA Logging or Hours of service. It also benefits from the latest nuvi features like advanced avoidances and nuMenu (custom menus).

Posted March 18th, 2009 - Virtually no stone has been left unturned when it comes to "GPS Assisted Navigation" for cars, but systems for trucks have been far an in between, in fact other than ALK's PC-Miller based CoPilot Truck is the only "consumer" system. This is where Garmin come in with their nuvi 465t announced at the Mid America Truck Show. While it keeps the familiar form factor of Garmin's widescreen mobile systems, the 465T adds road restrictions such as height, width, length, weight and hazardous materials to compute specific truck routes...... It should be available in the second quarter of 2009 at an MSRP of $500. You can use the [NEWS] Nuvi 465T for truckers announced topic in the "Garmin nüvi forums" to discuss.
