3/15/2011 03:16:18 PM Eastern

Chicago - Cobra is expanding its
selection of portable navigation devices (PNDs) for truckers with a 5-inch
model offering almost all of the features of its 7-inch sibling.

 The 5550 Pro at a suggested  $349 is due in April with such features as
junction view with lane assist, state mileage log, hours-of-service log, and
more than 1 million more miles of U.S. road coverage compared to competing maps,
the company said.

Other features common to both the
5550 Pro and 7-inch 7750 Platinum are more than 12 million standard
points-of-interest (POIs) plus 33,000 truck-specific POIs, such as travel
center locations, detailed amenity information, fueling stations, restaurants,
heavy-duty towing, truck and trailer repair shops, truck-friendly hotels, weigh
stations and the location of certified scales.  

Both touchscreen devices also
feature three months of unlimited downloads from Cobra's Aura Camera &
Driving Hazard Database, which alerts drivers to the locations of fixed speed
and red-light cameras, dangerous intersections and known speed traps.
