Magellan Truck GPS

Magellan excels the market in making GPS device for trucks. The devices are intuitive and dynamic. It means the devices will get better with time i.e. with regular maps update.

Truck GPS does more data crunching than a regular GPS device. The truck GPS is always performing checks for restrictions and bridges. But, the device has to be programmed for that. Contrary to an Auto GPS, the drivers need to set them with the truck data and then carefully select route types and other pieces of information. So, you must use your judgement carefully.

The Truck GPS has mostly 2 types of routes: shortest and the fastest. You should use your discretion because if you set it for the fastest then you might miss the shortcuts especially at the start and end of the trip which is not on the major highways. If you set the device for shortest then it will show shortcuts that might not be worth taking. The basic rule is to use the shortest for rural areas and fastest for the long routes.

The main purpose of Magellan Truck GPS

The main purpose of the Truck GPS is not fundamentally to find the best route but to provide a tool for enhancing your professional driving skills. Since the trucks are not allowed on many roads and old bridges. You don’t want to be heading to a low-clearance bridge. You should be aware of your truck’s height and clearance. It gives you tools to avoid very expensive tickets which you can get by going on restricted roads.

Why Do Truckers need to update their GPS device?

The data on the Magellan GPS device is accurate most of the time but sometimes they can show some errors. This happens because of the always on-going construction processes. So, the data is ever evolving and being updated.

The railroad bridge data is prone to change the most because they are mostly old and they are shut down often. They are mostly low and have been there for a very long time. Roads and streets are paved and despite the fact that the bridge height is adjusted accordingly but you can’t be 100% sure. That’s why you need to keep the device always updated.
