Reviews of Cobra GPS
Navigation Systems by Truckers

Some truckers rely on a global positioning system to help them in their work. Cobra GPS Navigation Systems are among the choices. We are personally familiar with the Cobra name because they manufacture CB radios.

Disclaimer: We have never used any kind of a global positioning system, either in or out of a commercial motor vehicle. Vicki's only exposure to one is based on a taxi ride she once took in the Midwest. When Mike drove regionally, he considered getting one, but we never did.

If you are a professional driver, you are probably aware that there are differences between regular GPS units and those designed for large trucks. The units designed for large trucks take into consideration such things as truck restrictions using vehicle dimensions. There may be other features useful to professional drivers.

The reviews on truck-specific Cobra GPS navigation systems on have not been very favorable. Are they really that bad?

Although models vary, we found information about these that have a "Pro" designation(through our affiliation with There may be more or fewer models available than these.
