Cobra Adds PND For Truckers

Publish date:

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.
