Garmin Mobile PC for trucks?
K9KTO
Garmin has a truck-specific PND: 465T. Do you think Garmin will release a truck-specific Garmin Mobile PC version? There is a huge market for truck-specific GPS products, whether hardware or software. Most, if not all, the current truck-specific hardware and software have some major problems and weaknesses.

I have no way of knowing whether or not Garmin intends to add truck-specific routing options to Garmin Mobile PC, but I think Garmin should. A large screen of a netbook or a laptop fits into a large truck, an RV, or a motorhome much more than a small PND does.

Perhaps users of Mobile PC could contact Garmin and request or suggest large vehicle routing be included in the next version.

P.S The above linked Garmin support page doesn't display all options correctly on the drop down lists if viewed in web browsers other than Internet Explorer.

I just sent a mail. Thanks for the suggestion Marvin.

Also, the page displays fine with FireFox.

malak86, I think the last item is missing on every one of the drop down menus when viewed on FireFox.

Thanks for sending it!
