    I use a used Garmin 650. Works pretty good most of the time. But there are times it doesn't know where it's at.

      I have a Garmin Dezl 5". Had it for a couple years. My only complaint is that it refuses to recognize roads that are clearly marked truck route. And I cannot find a way to add the roads into the system.

      jhead64jhead64 , I set mine up like this
      [​IMG]

      Each profile is a different class of Hazmat. It makes it easy to switch.
