ALK Technologies announces the launch of PC*MILER Navigator 550, the latest addition to its third-generation x50 lineup of truck-specific professional GPS navigation devices. Powered by CoPilot, it provides dock-to-dock, voice-guided turn-by-turn directions with street names and truck-specific routing across the United States and Canada using industry-standard PC*MILER map data.

Designed specifically for company drivers, owner-operators, and leased operators, PC*MILER Navigator truck-specific routing helps drivers reduce out-of-route mileage and save money, time, and fuel costs. An all-in-one GPS for truck drivers, it provides more than 3 million commercial truck restrictions, customizable route calculation based on vehicle size and load type, and more than 7 million points of interest including truck-specific categories.

The new version includes high-end navigation features including ClearTurn realistic display with lane indicator, arrows, and real signpost information for clear guidance at complex intersections and highway exits. Clear, voice-guided turn-by-turn directions combined with the 550's high-definition 5-inch widescreen touch display and anti-glare finish provide a safe and stress-free driving experience on truck-legal roads. The new device features the ALK MapSure service, which provides automatic downloadable map updates at regular intervals throughout the year and gives drivers the opportunity to report roads or addresses that are missing or need updating for inclusion in a future update.

With the 550, drivers can also create state mileage logs to generate an accurate record for billing and tax calculation. PC*MILER Navigator systems are available at major truck retailers throughout the United States and Canada, as well as authorized online resellers including www.Dieselboss.com. www.GoTruckStops.com, and www.4statetrucks.com.
