      nüvi 465T

The first nüvi designed specifically for the over-the-road trucking industry, 
the nüvi 465T features a preloaded NTTS Breakdown Directory, specialized 
routing options throughout the lower 48 states and truck-friendly points of 
interest. The nüvi 465T also lets you create custom vehicle profiles tailored 
to what you're driving and what you're hauling. It's convenience created with 
over-the-road drivers in mind.

*Fleet Management functionality:*
